One familiar face in the ongoing proliferation of high-quality Italian food in Los Angeles has been Obicà, a mozzarella-focused restaurant with additional locations in Century City and Santa Monica. Starting tomorrow, that list will also include the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.

Pushed into the former short-lived Avenue 31 space, this new 120-seat Sunset Plaza address offer broad patio views of the glitz and glamor out front, plus an even stronger look at the city below from the back. The main dining area is wood-wrapped and airy, with lots of bar seating and stools wrapping the glass-wrapped mozzarella station. The restaurant tackles just over 3,300 square feet, which makes it a roomy option for anyone looking to spend some time sipping wine and nibbling away with friends or clients. The full menu is below.

As for the bill of fare, expect lots of things with cheese of course. That might include a pizza at one end, or a series of small plates and cured meats at the other. You’ll also find larger mains like pastas, roasted chicken, and lobster. Obicà Sunset officially opens tomorrow, keeping lunch and dinner hours to start.
