Yes, that looks like the False Widow Spider, Steatoda bipunctata, one of the Cob Web Weavers in the family Theridiidae.

It is Steatda grossa, one of the ‘false widows’in the Steatoda genus found in homes all over the world… they are harmless despite all the nonsense spread by the clueless tabloid media.
