Good with a few chinks in the armor

Four of us had dinner here and all ordered different items so that we could sample each other's food. Everything was either good or great, but be warned that this becomes a pricey meal because it is a la carte and wines are expensive. The favorites were the grilled octopus appetizer, the sage... read more

I have been a loyal patron to Mozza for some time. The food is well-prepared and delicious (as are many restaurants in LA) and I have always marveled at the aloof attitude of the servers and subtly wondered if management was aware of how the servers appeared to treat customers as if we were lucky to be there vs caring...

The service in the restaurant is perfect, waiters attentive without intruding. The menu was good as well, food very well prepared. The vinelist, I have never seen anything like it, a huge amount to choose from.A wonderfull experience.

Osteria Mozza is a classy restaurant that serves mouth watering dishes. We got their famous Mozzarella Tasting that has 3 different kinds of mozzarella, Orecchiette with sausage and swiss chard (the flavor and texture was the bomb), Tagliatelle, Linguine, and Bavette (we all shared the pasta), Grilled Beef Tagliata (suuuuper yummy), and 2 kinds of dessert - Bombolini and Gelati...

Mozza is a classy restaurant with delicious menu items. However, it gets extremely loud in there - so please don't try to go for a quiet, romantic evening... you will be thoroughly disappointed :-( I loooooooooooove the Mozzarella tasting. OMG - cheese lovers of the world, you have to try this (paired with some wine of course)! It is soooo... More

This dinner was a birthday treat for me while visiting family for the holidays. As a new mom I was desperate for three things: 1) a date night with my husband, 2) a good glass of wine, and 3) some good cheese. I chose Mozz because of their wide ranging mozzarella menu, and in particular because I love burrata and... More

We dined here while visiting our daughter over Thanksgiving week. Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent and the restaurant had a relaxing, quiet atmosphere even though they were very busy. I would love to dine here again!

Great service and great food. What impressed me the most is the friendliness of the staff and the size of the portions. Try the cheeses... Will blow your mind..worth a try if you can get a table. Try the gnocchi with duck ragu.

+ Nice Italian restaurant with great wines in a nice environment. - The tagliata tasted too much balsamico and the skill of the waiters differed a lot.
