My husband and I went the other night with friends. I was really looking forward to eating here as I've heard such rave reviews. I have to say I was rather surprised. I thought I was going to a trendier Los Angeles eatery and pulled up to valet to see strollers and families. When we walked in, a couple had... More

The burrata dressed with speck, showered with English peas & mint was delightfully simple and fresh. Reminiscent of spring dew. Surreal was the Squid Ink Chitarra Freddi (cold) with dungeness crab, and sea urchin. A chilled dish demonstrating astonishing caliber and riveting character. A veritable union of the sea. The crab surrendered to the sea hedgehog while they both capitulated... More

All the appetizers are fantastic, I particularly love the salad with date and anchovy dressing, the Ricotta on toast with rosemary and candied nuts and the orichette pasta with fennel sausage

We arrived early for a pre-theater dinner. We lucked out and were seated in the back room which is quieter and more intimate than the larger front room. We told our server, Tim, we had limited time. He made sure each course arrived promptly, but never rushed us. He was always there when needed but never intrusive. We could have... More

Great food, fresh ingredients, not as good as Mozza. Great apps like the octopus. I don't recall anything else being so memorable, but everything was good.

Go there. Really superb Ital food and mature wine list. Super excellent service. I like sitting in the small tables in the back. Also, drinking at the bar before dinner is great, too. Killer bartenders.

A recent business dinner here was my first chance to try this place and it was a very enjoyable experience., It's a comfortable and plesant setting and has a classic look about it. The food was very fresh and also delicious and interesting, There were a couple glitches when the waiter made it clear he would not take any part... More

This has to be one of the best Italian restaurants i have been to. The restaurant was packed and they did seat us a little late and they were out of some stuff as our reservation was for pretty late in the evening. Despite this, the food was excellent, the service attentive and the delivery of the food paced perfectly,... More

Was quite skeptical before dining at Mozza. I have to admit that it lived up to the hype. Authentic Italian cuisine, cool hip atmosphere, solid wine list, attentive service. Expect to wait for a table, it's worth it.
