Florence & Milan, Italy. August 2014 & January 2015.
In a cute courtyard space along a nice little shopping street is Obikà Firenze. We tried their mozzarella mini tasting menu (it’s huge, so we could barely finish it along with all our other food), some pastas and a pizza. Not out of this world or anything, but decent, good food, and a great place to talk and hang out.
In Milan, Obikà is located at the top floor terrace of La Rinascente shopping center, with a great up-close view of the gothic duomo. Prices are slightly higher than in Firenze, but the atmosphere is great for hanging out and chatting too.
