Client 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 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 AMThis juice not worth the squeeze...This was our first time here, we live a few blocks away and have been dying to eat here...Well we finally did. It's ok at best. the hype is better than the meal. Everything we ate just had a little too much seasoning of whatever it was supposed to have. The steak had a little too much pepper, the salad was absolutely drenched in dressing. And I mean drenched! And I don't mind paying alot of money for a meal, but only if it's AMAZING! And this....was not :( But our server was fantastic and very knowledgeable of the menu. But alas, we probably won't be eating here again.4/22/2013 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 AMA little noisy but the foodA little noisy but the food was excellent. We be back again.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was simply excellent.The food was simply excellent. My one issue would be with the waiting. Waiting past reservation time, waiting between courses, waiting for the bill. It was a Monday night, it shouldn't have been so difficult.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the grilled octopusWe had the grilled octopus appetizer, bufala mozzarella with prosciutto di parma, squid ink chitarra freddi, pan roasted sea trout, and cioccolato for dessert. Everything was delicious. I would have give the food 5 stars but i thought they were overpriced for the really small portions. Service was excellent and the place looked nice.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent...obviouslyThe food was excellent...obviously prepared by a chef who cares very much about what leaves the kitchen. We had a variety of dishes, and we chose to share and eat "family style" which is a wonderful way to experience Mozza. Every dish lived up to expectations. The wine list is difficult to navigate, but we ended up with some nice wines. We all agreed that we hope to eat at Mozza again soon.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dining experience.Had a great dining experience. Everything was great.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI have dined here many timesI have dined here many times and keep coming back because of the fabulous food even though the service is rather slow and unattentive. To quote a fellow diner because the food is so good you are willing to be held hostage by the slow service!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter 4 visits to this restaurantAfter 4 visits to this restaurant over the last couple of years, I can honestly say this is one of the best restaurants in the country. Everything works... the room, the service... and the food, wow. I've never had a bad dish, no matter what I try. If it is your first time, you must get the Ravioli with egg and brown butter, so good it defies belief! The boar ragu, which I tried for the first time this last go round, is incredible. The orecchiette is justifiably famous as well. Wonderful place.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. First time,Excellent service. First time, celebrating birthdays and our waiter made it special for us. Noise can be quiet to loud depending on how close to the bar we were seated. Portions generally ran large, except for pasta portion sizes which I thought were proper for a three course meal.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent porcini rubbed rib-eye.Excellent porcini rubbed rib-eye. Whole fish sea-bass not so good. Excellent waiter with great suggestion for wine.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMin the last year this wasin the last year this was the best food My wife and I have had...bar none!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMake a reservation soon!Top notch all the way. Food, service, cozy yet upbeat dining room, just great. We had the following dishes:
Crispy Pig Trotter- the crispy exterior breading outweighed the small amount of pork inside but the dish as a whole was very tasty.
Burricotta with Braised Artichoke- Crisp, creamy, great balance of flavors
Ricotta & Egg Raviolo w/ Brown Butter- This dish is a masterpiece! If you go there get this for sure
Braised Beef Short Rib w/Porcini and Polenta- So tender you dont need Teef! really really good
The service from the moment we walked in the door was excellent, set the tone for an awesome bithday dinner3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNever got my open table points CheNever got my open table points
Checked in and sat at bar and ate3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Very knowledgeableGreat food. Very knowledgeable and friendly service staff. Their selection and preparation of burrata is a must-try!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at Osteria MozzarellaThe food at Osteria Mozzarella is simply magnificent--the mozzarella appetizers, the pastas, and the porcini rubbed ribeye are all can't miss choices. We have been impressed every time we've dined here that we make a special trip to LA every year to eat there.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Restaurant was Top Notch,This Restaurant was Top Notch, from the food to the service to the wine.. Can't wait to be back in Ls Angeles so we can dine here again.. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had.. The manager's attention to detail and his going out of his way attitude made it one of the best nights we have ever had..3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent; wouldn'tFood was excellent; wouldn't change a thing. Service was very good, but I dinged them a star for not providing olive oil or butter with our bread until I asked for it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen there before and alwaysBeen there before and always loved it. This time was no exception!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a romantic specialGreat for a romantic special occasion dinner. Fantastic food, service and ambiance. Easy valet parking. Will return again!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIncreadible food-But Very LoudI was really looking forward to the experience of Osteria Mozza and for the most part my expectations were met. The food, presentation and service was impeccable and can't be beat. However, the ambiance in the restaurant does not match the quality of the food, presentation or service. The restaurant noise level in the restaurant is through the roof and I am not referring to a single loud patron. It is the acoustics which are so bad that by the time we would normally have desert, especially because it was my wife's birthday, we had to bail to get into some quiet. Sorry Mario but from one Italian to another get some carpet on the floor and some sound deadening material on the walls.
Michael3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent preparation andExcellent preparation and presentation of simple Italian food. We loved it. The idea of having a tasting selection of mozzarella cheese is inspired.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI love dining at the osteriaI love dining at the osteria and especially love the burrata "crostini" - soooooooooo good!2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a titleConsistently superb cuisine. Had deliciously fresh mussels and ribs.2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe have been to Mozza a few times as when I travel to LA it is at the top of my list. It never disappoints me. The food and service are top notch.. If you are looking for a " traditional" Italian restaurant with large portions, then Mozza is not your place. If you want nice ambience, that is alive with fantastic quality food then you should visit Mozza . I know i will be back...12/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
