Ober Mamma is East Mamma sister restaurant and a great Italian food embassy in the neighborhood. The food is simply incredible, ranging from various appetizers you can pick and choose (fresh mozzarella, smoked ricotta, hams, sausages and more) to heavenly crispy pizzas from a real Neapolitan wood-fired oven that can be seen from the back garden. I had the meatballs that were moist and richly flavored. So good they were I had to buy the cookbook before leaving the restaurant to try to replicate them at home. They do not take reservations, a practice becoming widespread in new Parisian restaurants, so arrive early if you are in a large party. Otherwise just give your name and phone number at the entrance and grab a cocktail at the bar while waiting. I sat at the counter and had a great time observing the barmen but the garden at the back looked fabulous. This place is on my love list.
