A bit expensive for the food

Beautiful ambience, beautiful people, and expensive. I had my traveling clothes on and felt under-dressed. Food is not bad but not top notch. The burrata was OK - much better than the supermarket but not quite as nice as those offered by the European medium priced restaurants. The octopus was... read more

Unacceptably slow service. Took 25 minutes to get a drink order taken and delivered. The food order took at least an hour. Average food at best. I'm a better cook. Totally over hyped. I don't get it.

I'm devotee of burata. Mozza has many kind of burata cuisine in their mozzarella bar menu. The experience in this restaurant is excellent.

One of my wife's favorite television shows is The Chew and she loves Mario Batali so on our visit to Los Angeles I decided to surprise her and call the restaurant at 1:30 PM for a last minute lunch reservation for that day. To my surprise the hostess told me "come right in. We will be waiting for you." We... More

I LOVED everything about this place!! The buratta and grilled octopus are to die for!! The burratta is served with "bread" which is more like Texas toast drizzled with olive oil...soo good!

Food was better than average but not great as it used to be. Service was top notch. Hostess as clueless as she tried to seat us on the back room while there was only 2 tables in the restaurant at 630 pm reservation from Four Seasons . I guess they lost done people up ft knit and in the kitchen.

One of my favourite restaurants in LA, it's definitely worth a visit. Very good food with helpful and knowledgeable staff. Great selection of wines too with something for everyone. Would highly recommend.

We booked a table for 5 four weeks in advance, and the only time available was at 730pm. We gladly took it. The food was excellent, and the ambiance was nice although a little noisy. Great people watching while we waited for our food. Overall it was a very nice evening with friends, great food and drink,

I dined at this restaurant in early May. Had the grilled octupus, which was different but tasty. My striped bass was fairly good. Overall, I enjoyed my experience here. I guess I was just expecting a little more for the price range. Will give another try the next time im in L.A.

Been here twice. Both times I've had (every one at my table had) a perfect dinner. The food is so so delicious. Simple and perfect. The burrata selection is to die for and the have the most amazing fish (I've had it both times) wrapped in radicchio and grilled. The service is friendly and helpful. The place is beautiful.
