Worth the wait !!!Every time I had tried to get a reservation the restaurant was full. Got in for father's day and it was amazing. Excellent pasta. dishes. They are so accomodating. Will definitely go back.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpectedThe waiter went out of his way to make us feel comfortable - from the Italian wine list to the incredible pasta's - it was a real dining
experience at its BEST!!!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great and attentive.Service was great and attentive. We sat at the bar and loved it. It is a bit noisy, but in a vibrant way. Will go there again.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Special EventsThe food is inventive, well presented and we didn't order anything that was not great. The service is also first rate. One of our top favorite places to eat.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dining experienceWe're always pleased with the innovative selections on the menu. For starters, I really enjoyed the unique flavor of their Sicilian Highball cocktail. And the Fior di Latte mozzarella appetizer was outstanding with it's perfectly-sized portion of mozzarella and delightful relishes. My husband particularly liked the Little Gem Lettuce antipasti. And the wonderful bread they serve with high quality olive oil makes it easy to overdo it. However we were both surprised by the small portions of pastas we ordered - they've reduced the size since our last visit last year. And be forewarned that some dishes contain a lot of salt and butter! However, overall it was a very pleasant experience.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMario B Is a friend of FoodThis is one of my favorites. You can expec to spend 40 to 50 dollars per person I'd you do it right and order something from every course. Each dish out together with such care and exciting flavor. I try to get there once or twice per month for some pasta ( all have been spectacular) fish and today tried the quail. Simply delicious.
In all, a must if visiting or living on LA.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Amazing Atmosphere!I loved everything about my experience from the hostess at the door to the bartender, to the server and all the staff and of course the food! Everyone was super nice and it was a truly inviting experience. The Halibut was melt-in-your-mouth amazing! Would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice night out with delicious gourmet food at a reasonable price!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMhas the pasta tasting menuhas the pasta tasting menu and it was the right portion and very tasty as well as very rich. dessert of a strawberry crespelle was excellent6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMit was excellent. one of myit was excellent. one of my favourite place to eat at when in town.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHave CheeseEverything coming from the Cheese Bar is fabulous, great combinations. Salmon was great, Quail excellent, Lamb not so good. Huge wine list that you can't understand, fortunately our waiter picked out a couple great bottles. Would highly recommend.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceThe wine and the Mozzarella dish were my favorite food items. The pasta tasting was superb, wonderfully executed dishes. My only confusion was the plating. I know that pasta isn't prone to immaculate plating - but perhaps the kind of plates used could have been more suited to small portions of pasta. I think, given the quality of the meal - the presentation should have matched the food and service.
The service was incredible. Our server was prompt, very easy to talk to, had a great sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable. With every wine he poured, he went in to the history, where it was from, why it would taste the way it would taste and why it would pair well with our dish. Fantastic.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyThe food here was more than delightful, it was a vessel taking you to a whole new solar system of tastes. With each bite you could feel as if though you had a baby in your stomach kicking from the power each bite of food possessed. This is the type of food you would want enemies to sit down and eat while discussing potential plans of peace. If more in this nation ate more of these such fine and titillating foods I do believe the 10% of Americans who have Depression would drop down to a low 3%. So eat here if you love happiness, taste and mouthfuls of revolution.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, good foodChance is you might have to wait even if you have RSVP. All dishes were on a salty side, and portion were petite. Great service from all staffs. Did not try any wine selection or other drinks (designated driver)6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time but not the lastFirst time here and it was everything I heard it was. Outstanding food and service. Reminded me very much of Italy, courses were small but tantalizing. We got lucky and went on a Thursday night....each week they have fresh Barrata flown in from Italy for there Barrata bar...I can't begin to tell you how amazing it was...served with their homemade garlic bread....shear heaven!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMozza Unbelievable!The food is amazing. The service is great. We sat in the back wine cellar area. I highly recommend it, much quieter than the bistro style dining room and open kitchen bar, unless you're trying to be seen.
Bravo Mozza!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful pasta, great fish,Wonderful pasta, great fish, and great wine. A very nice experience.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, great service.Delicious food, great service. On the expensive side, but the quality and flavor of food warrants a return.

One of our favorites in LA.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and serviceI celebrated a special occasion dinner with a friend mid-week and the service and food could not have been better. Still dreaming of the pillows of goat cheese ravioli pasta and the olive oil cake and gelato. The mozzarella tasting came with a buttery, salty garlic bread that was the perfect complement to the 3 cheeses. The service was well-paced and our server was nothing short of delightful and helpful in making recommendations. Highly recommended and will definitely return. Thanks for making our evening so memorable!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAll about foodOsteria is all about food. Everything from apps to desserts was outstanding. Service was great, very attentive.
However, we had flowers with us and we could not have it on the table, no vase was provided even after multiple requests. In my opinion, it should not be a problem.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Italian on MelroseBravo Cheg Silverton and Batali!. A wonderful neighborhood gem with a fabulous Mozzarella Bar, nice cocktails, great wine list, delicious pasta's and creative salads. Portions are very small. Pricey but very high quality with attention to detail.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service and deliciousImpeccable service and delicious food. This place never disappoints.

The food is out of this world.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousThe quail wrapped in pancetta was outstanding. E erroneous loved their food and I would go back anytime.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinner for an 80 year oldWith great sensitively we were given a quiet and lovely table. It was perfect except for being a tad too close to the serving buffet, so that one of our group kept getting bumped by the servers. I'm sure they would have moved the table a few inches if they had known.
I wasn't told until we left or I would have done something myself. Our waiter was a dream.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Osteria MozzaWe had a great first time experience at Osteria Mozza. We started with delicious cocktails at the bar before being shown to our table. Our waitress was exceptionally helpful and provided great recommendations! We really enjoyed sampling and sharing a bit from each part of the menu. I would definitely love to come back and try other things on the menu!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday at MozzaOur group enjoyed our dinner celebration. Everyone's dish was very tasty. We sat in a smaller space near the wine room/Melrose. It was better for us without the noise from the larger dining room.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING FOOD AT OSTERIA MOZZAHad the best time at one of LA's best restaurants - OSTERIA MOZZA. I love this place. We had the PASTA TASTING MENU which was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #amazeballs! so good and can I just say the bread at this restaurant was outstanding! mmm mmmm mmmm5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinner choice!I liked it for the occasion but because of the noise level it wasn't as romantic as I had liked. Also we were seated near the door and servers walked by constantly to pour wine from the wine table near us.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNo words can describeThe food at OM is positively outstanding. Each plate was so delicious I could only wish that I could eat more. Yes, it's pricey but its excellent for a special occasion or for splitting.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMhot and coldLast visit was fabulous overall. food, service and wonderful attitude. Previous experience albeit last year terrible hauty attitude and fair food. On the good night one of the best places in town5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSlow service, wonderful food.Slow service, wonderful food. Very nice wine list, if a bit higher mark-up than normal. It is funny, they keep the water glass full, can't bring olive oil or butter for the bread and have problems pouring the wine.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMClient EntertainmentI took my most important client here and it was a fantastic experience. A lot of food but an incredibly knowledgable and attentive wait staff.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways delishMozza is a superb and reliable dining experience. Whatever we order, we know it will be delicious. Service was impeccable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMcreative fare!Reasonably priced wine. Creative and delicious food. No traditional Italian fare here! A delightful dining exprrience. A must for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably one of the best mealsProbably one of the best meals we have ever had. We did the pasta and wine tasting and it was amazing.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Dinner!My parents had eaten here a couple years ago and LOVED it. I had eaten at the Pizzeria side a couple years ago and loved it so I was excited that my parents and I had a reason to go to the Osteria side. Everything was absolutely amazing. Definitely get something from the Mozzarella Bar and enjoy a dessert (no sharing needed! lol). I'm looking forward to another special occasion to be able to go back, as your wallet may only be able to handle this place once a year or every couple of years, lol.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good overall,The food was good overall, but the service got worst as more people were in the restaurants. I had to stand up couple times to call for service since no one showed up to our table for any service at times when we want dessert or order drinks(drinks were empty for 20 mins) . The service was better before. The food was still as good as I remembered it.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTasteThe flavors and depth of flavor in most of the dishes are incredible. Fresh ingredients and careful prep are the hallmark of the dishes.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDeeeelicious!Beautiful setting. Excellent service. Get the pasta tasting menu. 'nuff said.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous all around. DefinitelyFabulous all around. Definitely try the orichiette and the burrata with bacon and escarole. And on top of all the usual things you'd expect from a nice restaurant, they even have a serious espresso bar with a barista who knows what he/she is doing!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta go back!the food was amazing and the service was most attentive. So many interesting menu choices we will definitely need to go back! My 13 year old had a flank steak in balsamic that was delicious! The pasta with oxtail ragu was divine. We started with the burrata cheese that is imported weekly (served with crusty bread) and it was soooo delicious we could not stop eating it. This was too bad because we were too full to eat our main courses!!! The caprese salad tomatoes were amazing. The only minor drawback was the acoustics-too noisy to easily hold conversation so I would not recommend this restaurant for large groups.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only criticism is thatMy only criticism is that the restaurant rushed to seat us, told us we had to be out by 8:30 and then provided the slowest service ever.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding pasta tasting menuPasta tasting menu with wine painting was the best meal we've had in a year.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMolto Mozza, Mario!Excellent. Creative food prepared masterfully and served expertly!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's not often you find aIt's not often you find a restaurant that is just as good every time you go there - or even better. Your memory of the sublime experience tends to be exaggerated over time and therefore your expectations tend to be higher. Mozza is one of those very rare exceptions where every time you go back the food, the wine, and the whole experience are even better than the one you've been dreaming about since your last luscious visit.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExpect to waitVery good food and good prices, just too long of a wait time even with a reservation, we waited more than 50 minutes and had a reservation and it was just a party of two.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
