Remember that sweet Italian couple we met on the train from Paris to Florence?  Obika is one of the first recommendations they made to us and I’m so glad we took their advice.  They had us by mentioning it is a mozzarella bar, and the fun and sleek atmosphere sealed the deal.  My first introduction to the Italian apertivo, Obika’s specialty is free small plates with any drink purchase.  The hours are later than those of the American happy hour, so you can partake in delicious eats well into the evening and be primed to hit the town.  Obika’s smoked mozzarella is a favorite.  Within walking distance to Maccheroni, this is a great place for a before dinner drink.
