The menu at this restaurant offers so many marvelous options that it becomes very difficult to order and this includes a very well conceived cocktail list. The mozzarella bar offers great combinations of burrata and buffalo mozzarella. The anitpasti section had a dish called "affettati misti" which is an assortment or various charcuterie and was the best of it's kind... More

We had a big lunch so only focusing on appetizers. The prosciutto was in high quality. Mozzarella and cherry tomato was average. The octopus was grilled in perfection. We also shared the squid inked pasta with uni and crab meat. The light, little spicy source mixed well with pasta and accentuated the flavor of uni and crab meat. Portion of... More

Had such a good time at this restaurant! I am Italian and have grown up eating Italian food, but I have never experienced such explosions in flavour like I did here. Would definitely go back if I am ever in LA again, despite the somewhat steep price tag. Worth every penny for sure.

Dined in their Osteria last night, party of two. Had to wait 15 min for a reservation, but staff warm and friendly. Very crowded. Waiter was excellent and had clear training with the wine list helping us order perfect choices to accompany the meal. Had 5 courses, each outstanding. Loved the octopus! Recommend trying something from every group. The lamb... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner at this intimate, hip restaurant. Our reservation was honored on time and our waitress was very professional, answering any questions we had about the menu. The mozzarella dishes are fantastic. The wine list is extensive. Be aware, Mozza is on the expensive side but we felt it was worth the price.

The place was way too loud! We waited even though we had a reservation. FOOD WAS SO SLOW A TURTLE WOULD HAVE WON THE RACE! We were ready to leave and grab a pizza next door by the time any of the courses came out. 25 minutes for apps. 45 minutes for a pasta. 30 minutes for the entrees. 3... More

Went to this restaurant with my partner having found it across sites like trip advisor. Having read the rave reviews I would have to agree with them and recommend it. The ambience is dark yet intimate and cool. We asked our waitress for recommendations on the mozzarella menu and were blown away with those selections including burratta on a crostino... More
