Shee Shee Place with $$$$$$ menu

Always interested to visit and try - so we did - 2 couples with a $700 bill. Food was good but service was much better. The food was overtly salty for us all. Would not return. Much better places to spend the money and time.

My husband and I ate dinner at Mozza in the middle of November during a visit to Los Angeles. We ate well everywhere, but Mozza was the stand-out for several reasons -- everything was extra special, small portions easy to share, new and different tastes that made for an exciting dinner. We live in the Bay Area and are used... More

The food was good. I liked it. It tasted good. Mario was not there. That's fine. I loved it. Wanna go again. I really do. That's all.

My girlfriend and I went to Mozza for dinner on Thursday. We started with the Burrata & Bacon (marinated escarole and caramelized shallots). Then we had the Butternut Squash Mezzelune (too many superb ingredients to mention, trust me, it was excellent). We followed that by ordering the Grilled Yellowtail (with celery pesto and ceci mantecato). For dessert we chose the... More

It's not that the offering was adventurous it is all about their attention to detail. Nothing gets past the owners which results in a stunning experience. Bestia was fantastic, but this is better

I have been coming here for years and I simply love the food, ambience, service and will most definitely come back soon! The Mussels are perfection and the desserts are perfect for sharing.

Mozzarella came with a great recommendation and it was packed when we arrived with no reservation. We must have gotten their last open table as it was kind of, sort of, maybe definitely was in the bar. Our very friendly exuberant server explained almost the entire menu to us first-timers, carefully explaining that plate sharing a couple of items would... More

Excellent in all ways, from service to finish, from first course of thick, delicious garlic bread, shaved brussels sprouts w/walnuts and one of their signature mozzarella bar cheeses...yummy. Next course of corn inside pasta dumplings w/light lovely butter sauce, just absolutely delicious. The aforementioned shared, and finally, for our third course, yellowtail and wild sea bass...both perfectly prepared and excellent.... More

Four of us ate at Osteria Mozza on a family visit. I have the cookbook and was looking forward to trying the food in person. The service was excellent but the food was inconsistent. The much heralded burrata from Italy was so-so, as was the goat cheese ravioli. The steak, lamb and brussel sprout salad with mint were wonderful, but... More
