Diner Reviews
  • "The two brothers/owners are passionate about their business and intimately involved with production and the customers. The specials were extraordinary and featured fresh local sea food including a grilled octopus salad and sea urchin pasta fresh from Santa Barbara. Unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside where I was looking forward to enjoying the LA night above the hustle of the local neighborhood."

  • "The food was very good but the waiting was tedious. Perhaps they bit off more Valentines Day than they could chew-we were two minutes early, but waited ten more to be seated and 30 after that before we got something to drink. Apologies were offered early on because "everyone is late and showed up at the same time" but half the tables were still empty by 9 (our reservation was for 7:30) and when other customers complained about having to ask three times before they got their check, wait staff seemed to move even slower while mumbling things that gave distinct impression staff thought the CUSTOMERS were wrong to be in such a hurry. We skipped dessert because we had already sat with empty plates and glasses for 45 minutes waiting for check."

  • "This 2nd floor, no elevator place made it tough for one in our party on crutches--no fault of the restaurant. The food was really good. I'll go there again."

  • "We tried Mosto Enoteca for dine la week with 2 other couples this past weekend. Don't know why but we practically had to beg for water, for bread & for someone to take our order. They were out of several of the wines we tried to order but were happy to suggest a substitution of an inferior bottle for the same price. Be forewarned. The food was decent, I wouldn't say stellar. Half the group began with rather rubbery octopus salad & the other half had a nice caprese. This was followed by either a bland tagliatelle with mushrooms, passable salmon or a very good short rib. Desserts were luscious. Not sure any of us would rush back for the bad attitude or service or passable food."

  • "The food at Mosto Enoteca was very good, the server excellent and charming. The problem is the ambience. The restaurant sits atop a strip mall that is quite busy and small. In another locale, it would be much more pleasing to the eye. The locale did not fit the menu offerings or prices. We enjoyed our meal, and the service staff was prompt and efficient."

  • "Selection of entree was limited but everything we had was just great. Hard to find squid ink pasta and it was delicious. Service was wonderful. The place is small and cramped. Service tables are visible. Outdoor space is right above Washington blvd and not sure how good it would be. parking is hard during peak hours."

  • "We stumbled across this hidden gem while visiting recently. The location on the second floor of a mini mall didn't promise much, but the food is terrific and the service is excellent. We have been back several times since and enjoyed it immensely every time."

  • "Some of the best Italian food we have had. Fresh pasta, good salads. Small seating area but it works. Outdoor dining in tent overlooking Washington St, that works too. If in the Venice California area, short walk from the beach."

  • "This place is a hidden gem, although it was recognized by Zagat in 2013 as the #4 best itailan restaurant in Los Angeles. So basically it's up there with Mozza and Scarpetta, but the prices are much more reasonable. When you walk into Mosto it feels like you've walked into someone's home and that's how they treat you. They are so personable, genuine and the service is always great!.The atmosphere is casual, the lighting is dim and they use candle light. It's not a trendy place. It's the type of place you go to actually hear the person you are at dinner with talk. They have very low level music.I highly recommend the papardelle with beef ragu, the squid ink tagilatelle with shrimp, the caprese salad and of course the affogato."

  • "I've been going to this great little restaurant for the past year and it never disappoints! Weird location in a little strip mall, but don't let that stop you. Best arugula salad ever! Great homemade pasta. Won't be sorry! give them a try."

  • "Inhospital, defensive and downright unappreciative of food quality or respect for customers. When asked about the inedible hard as rock woefully undercooked beans in salad were told " they were boiled". After the plate was removed the server returned to " the chef says thats the way they're supposed to be " Really/Seriously ! Homemade squid ink pasta with shrimp arrived totally under sauced and overcooked. The pasta soggy like a soup noodle and the shrimp as hard as the aforementioned beans. The color of the shrimp should have been enough for the chef to know it was inedible. The owner, Massimo told me homemade pasta is always this texture. Really ! Pasta that is housemade would require less cooking time but is still can be overcooked !"

  • "The restaurant is nice, the food is good, nothing stood out as great. The service started off very good, server was knowledgeable, but he never came to check if our food was okay or to see if we needed anything else. The busboy asked if our dinners were good as he cleared the table....a couple minutes later the waiter did come over with dessert menus, we passed. With all the restaurant choices out there, I wouldn't make a special trip back here, but if you are in the area it's fine."
