Like the girl or guy you’d happily swipe right for but not necessarily take home to mum and dad, ’O ver’s location on a dead stretch of Southwark Street pretty much means that it’s never going to be a long term commitment kind of place. But for a casual quickie, it’s pretty much perfect. The Naples-style pizzas here are very good and they also happen to make an excellent spritz, in case you need to take the edge of before you head back to the museum/your desk.
