I came here with a local who had eaten there before. The chef is the woman who started La Brea Bakery, which we are associated with business wise. The bread was good! (I'm off carbs, but I did try a small taste). The idea of different mozzarella, burrata, etc with different flavourings for appetizers was new to me and I... More

This truly is some of the best Italian food in LA. We have had numerous celebrations at this restaurant and the dishes never disappoint. But, there were long delays between courses which necessitated a kick in the butt to get things moving. If it had been a weekend night, I would have let the two hours to get the first... More

Imagine, an Italian themes restaurant in LA...should be in the NOrtheast A special place...while mozzarella is a theme we had one of the best rib eye steaks ever. Not cheap, but also a value. They do an emazing job bringing out tastes from hesrbs and other seasonings. Busy an dcan get noisy but a 'must do' in LA

Went to Osteria Mozza on Tuesday evening with my wife, daughter and son-in-law. The decor is very nice and there is an abundance of wait staff, even on an off night. Our waitress was helpful in suggestions for sharing items from the antipasti, mozzarella bar, and even the primi sections of the menu. Then we all ordered individually from the... More

After hearing about this restaurant for ages, we were really excited to try it out. The service right from the moment we entered was impeccable, and moved very swiftly. Although a bit too dark, the room was very cosy and warm. For appetizers, we had the Treviso di Verona and the Burricota with honey and fried rosemary. I loved the... More

1. It feels like they want you out of there in 15 minutes. I'v never experienced such a pressure, waiters urging you, taking away your plates while you are still eating. We didn't have a chance to breath for a second. 2. The smoke and smell was unpleasant. We left with stinky clothes like after a campfire. Yet, the food... More

I assume that resting on old laurels does vwork since the place is busy but its not worth it. The exception is the inventive burrata list which is tasty and unique. But ridiculously noisy and inattentive waiters with scurrying busboys racing to turn over tables does not work for me. Pastas were average both in flavor and texture and presentation... More

Simply AMAZING. The quality of food is upscale in every sense of the word. Every dish I try, is better than previous one. And I want to make an special metion to Ricky who is the best waiter food adviser ever.

… including the atmosphere, the wine list, the attentive staff, and the attention to detail. Had dinner at Mozza with several family/friends, and we were generally impressed. The wine list is extensive and varied, and the sommelier knows his business (including the ritual of seasoning the glasses). In terms of food, we were most impressed with the starters (especially the... More
