A group of 5 and we were able to have a discussion over the noise level. A plus! Food was wonderful and we'll be back.

The pizza and salad are fabulous, both are light yet filling. My server was very friendly and was great at refiling soft drinks and offering suggestions from the menu.

Excellent Cheese Selection
First time here. We had mozzarella sampler, brick chicken and a flat pizza. It was all good, chicken was moist and lemony. Yum. Sevice was over the top awesome!

Fantastic food and great service
First time going to Mozza Mia and I will definitely be going back. The food was top notch and the service was spectacular. A great experience all around!

Wonderful service, brought
Wonderful service, brought out plates of pizza dough for our two granddaughters to play with before the food came.

Cozy, casual dining
Great menu and wine list. I like the fact that the wine is served in glass and a half portions. We all had pizza and it
was wonderful. Nice selection for those of us who do not eat meat.
We will be back to try other items especially the appetizers. The service was outstanding.

Order the Sampler. Fresh, homemade cheese deliciously paired with crisp toast and fruits... this dish is what the restaurant is all about. But don't stop there. My son couldn't make up his mind between the custom wood fired pizzas or the flavorful ravioli or, or, or... just thinking about the menu makes me hungry again.
The service was gracious and quick, and when asked our waiter enthusiastically described the different types of cheese and provided tips on the best combinations.
This cozy place is high on my families 'go back soon' list.

Mozza Mia May 18th
A group of us shared 3 pizzas and the Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta. For Pizza, we had a Meat-a-balla, a Gamberi, and an Asparagi. The meatball pizza was a little more traditional, but the red sauce had great flavor. The Gamberi is a shrimp pizza on pesto with sun dried tomatoes. It was very flavorful and had a litte kick. the Asparagi was awsome. Asparagus and Chicken on a nice white sauce. We were happy with all three of them. I love mushrooms on pizza and could easily have added mushrooms to any of the three, but others in my group don't like them.

Didn't like the drink special...cherry bomb...too sweet. Waitress tried to push more food than we wanted. Too pushy.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Aside from Mozza Mia no showing me for my reservation (even though I checked in), long waits for our food and our server, the food is excellent.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best fresh mozarella tasting!
They make their own fresh mozarella and have a great tasting plate. They have two sizes of plates, one for two to three and one for four to five.

who closes at 10 on friday night
I would have given them 5 stars except that I had no idea they would close at 10:00 on a Friday night. I went here with my date and our night was going awesome until 9:45 when we hadn't gotten our pizza yet and the waitress came over to inform us they close at 10. They were nice but we felt really rushed after that. We sat there and ate one peice of pizza and then left. Why close at 10 on a Friday night? It put a damper on what was otherwise a perfect date. We moved on to the next place that was open and continued our lovely evening.
The fig and prischutto pizza was good, maybe a little overkill on the blue cheese but still good. The mozza sampler was delicious. Carol (aka. "Gorgeous") was a great server too.

Mozza Mia worth the drive
We live over 30 minutes away from Mozza Mia and found the appetizers and pizza to be excellent in quality and value. We will be returning.

I met a friend for lunch the other day at Mozza Mia in Edina. Not like to eat heavy pasta or pizza for lunch, I found a really nice salad on their menu that had fire roasted chicken, cherries, hazelnuts and gorgonzola cheese on it. It was delicious and very filling. My friend had fire roasted pizza which she said was good as well. We got there around noon and there were hardly any patrons there. Almost had the whole restaurant to our selves! Would recommend.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great outdoor summer dining
Imaginative pizzas, seriously tasty mozz and tomatoes that actually tasted like tomatoes. Knowledgeable waitstaff, reasonable prices (although wines by the bottle need some realmworld pricing options). All in all, a satisfying dining experience.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
we enjoy the special deal
we enjoy the special deal which includes theater tickets - $40 for movie tickets, bottle of wine, entree and dessert (gelato - YUM!) A perfect date night!

Overall Good Time
Mozza Mia consistently delivers a "good" experience. The fresh cheese is the #1 hit - can't miss - must have and just do the sampler because its fun to try each kind. They have some fun drinks and a decent wine list. I've consistently had good service here and the ambiance is pretty casual for an easy evening out. They offer a gluten-free pizza crust (which for some reason they don't specify on the menu???) which I'm quite certain is Udi's - so its wonderful to have a variety of options, but certainly not the best gluten-free pizza I've had. The rest of my group had similar feedback about "fine, not fabulous" food options. The one thing they kept bringing up though was how good that cheese was!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The pizza is good; everything
The pizza is good; everything Mozza is great. I've been here several times and it's a fun place for a casual meal. It's nothing fancy, but the wait staff is always nice and efficient and the rolatini and caprese dishes are always great.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy this place a lot. It's always a hard decision as to whether to have the pizza or the pasta. It's all good. Unfortunately, we had a server who was probably new. She knew there were specials to talk about, but didn't seem to know much about what they were and needed to refer to her cheat sheet to describe them.. Also - and this is a pet peeve of mine - we needed the ask the price of these specials. She said she "thought the special pasta dish was in the $14-$15 range". In our opinion, specials should be described and prices quoted. Not just at Mozza Mia, but all restaurants. One person in our party ordered the special pasta - chicken and spinach ravioli - and loved it. Food was wonderful, but server needed some more training.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as usual.
The title saysit all, we have never been disappointed when we have dined at Mozza Mia!
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just Great Pizza
Second visit in two months. Love the pizza. Service was so-so, but it was a beautiful evening to dine outside. Great spot to dine with family or friends.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
DELICIOUS pizza and mozzarella
The fig and prosciutto pizza is simply delicious, as is the fresh mozzarella!
I love this place, and will return time and time again!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice pizza in Edina
Great pizza choices. Love the mozzarella tasting plate, and nice selection of tap beers.

Had a fun family night. Really
Had a fun family night. Really enjoyed watch the pizza makers throw the pizza dough into the air when making the crust.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice outside seating area on the bustling street of 50th & France. Pizza's were excellent, calzone was overcooked. Service was great and all workers were pleasant. Enjoyed the experience but next time would try different items from the menu.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our grandson had a great time watching them make the pizza.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took a group of 9 to the restaurant and it worked out perfectly. For a group it is nice because you can sample many wonderful things from the bruschetta and cheese and meat boards to the pizza. All is done very well and lay-out of the restaurant allows you to see the kitchen at work. They have an outstanding selection of Italian wines and the service was fantastic.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
open table error
The food was fantastic and our server was great. However, they had no record of my reservation. Lucky for us there was a table.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice casual and family spot
We've eaten here several times before, as a couple, as a family and with a group of adults. Never a bad experience, always nice service and tasty food. I heartily recommend the mozz sampler plate -- house-made mozzarella and riccotta!J
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is very good
I've eaten here twice now, and both for lunch and dinner, the food was really good. The only drawback: we went on a Friday night, and it was very, very noisy. It took some doing to get a wait staffer to pay attention to us, but when she finally did, the service was okay—though not particularly fast.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mozza Mia is a winner
We had a great meal of pizza and the chopped salad. Our server was prompt, and food was delivered to our table very speedily. I had explained that we had a theater time, so I very much appreciated the prompt service. The pizza got an enthusiastic thumbs up from my 11 year old dining companion- the Surly crust makes such a difference. The chopped salad was well-executed, with outstanding salami, peppers, and fresh tomatoes.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Atmosphere
Parasole does it again with this Italian gem. Wood fired pizzas made right in front of you are the go to menu choice, as is the fresh pulled mozzarella.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mozza Mia was a wonderful last minute decision for a dinner out. Glad it was fairly easy to get a table. Food was amazing, the mozzarella sampler is a must! The pizza was also outstanding! We will definitely be back!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian Restaurant
We were looking for a great restaurant that was close to our hotel and found Mozza Mia on minneapolis.org. It's an excellent choice for those who want to sit out and enjoy the evening and the interior is modern and welcoming.
The staff was very attentive and provided suggestions of their favorites. We took them up on their special and a cheese board; which was made fresh that day. Excellent food, great service and in a fun and relaxing area.
When we're up that way again we'll certainly make sure to drop in.

This was my first time to the restaurant. The pizza was interesting and very good. The mozzarella sampler plate was yummy!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined at Mozza Mia with a larger group and were delighted with our food- we ordered the Fresca, Margherita, Porchetta, Cheese and the Deep Dish Build-Your-Own pizzas along with three salads and the Heirloom Bruschetta- we were definitely satisfied! They thrive on fresh, housemade and top-notch quality- this is definitely a neighborhood gem!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pizzas and house made cheese
Enjoyed a terrific dinner - simple but well prepared. Caprese salad - homemade mozarella with yummy in-season tomato, prosciutto and a pepperoni pizza. Prices on the high-moderate side, but felt like fair value for Edina. Wines and cocktails seemed overpriced (glass of Kim Crawford SB $14.00!) but if you stick with beer and soda it can be a family-friendly enough night out. Terrific service from front desk to server - prompt, kind, attentive.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sister night out
Neither my sister or I had ever been to Mozza Mia before, but were pleasantly surprised by both our meal, but also the attentiveness of staff. We asked for recommendations of things to consider for dinner and were not steered wrong! We shared 2-entrees and a dessert. Portions were reasonable and small enough that we could enjoy the deliciousness of a wood-fired pizza AND the pasta special for the evening. We will definitely go back when we have another sister dinner get-together!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time at Mozza Mia and it was delicious as usual! My friends and I love the mozzarella sampling platter....so amazing. Fresh cheese made daily. I had their baked pasta feature and it was delicious! We had a great girls night out! The server was really knowledgeable and the manager stopped by our table and really cared how we enjoyed our food. Loved it!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing FRESH (we watched it being pulled) mozzerella!
Our group had salad, pizza, pasta- all were delicious.
Service was top-notch.
Can't go wrong with any of the Parasole Group restaurants.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mozza Mia is a great place for great food, drinks and friends. We had a very large group - 12 people and our food was excellent, on-time and hot. Our waitress was excellent and easily handled our group size. This is a nice place to bring children and a good 'after work' dining place. Two thumbs up!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to the restaurant for lunch, not busy so was relatively quiet and we could carry a nice conversation without straining to be heard. (In past have gone at night and this is not true at that time of day) We shared a fig and prosciutto pizza that was fantastic! Two people shared the large and it was just the right amount without taking home leftovers. We took advantage of the movie Reel Deal - one pizza, one bottle wine and two tickets to the movie theater across the street for $40 plus tip. Definitely will go again.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took the kids for a birthday celebration. We had a variety of pizzas, and the daily special-mushroom ravioli. The food was fantastic! Then our waitress brought over a delicious chocolate warm cake and chocolate ice cream and a sparkler (for a candle)..was very fun! The only thing she could have been better at was to come for coffee refills in a timely manner.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a salad and a pizza. Both were yummy. Will be back...
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Family Meal
Our meal started before the restaurant got crowded, but ended with the place packed. Our service was awesome the entire time regardless of how many tables our server had. The food was gourmet enough for the adults, but not too fussy for the 3yr old dining with us. We were all pleased with our experience.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Birthday Dinner
My husband and I came here to celebrate his 30th birthday. We had a great experience! The service was amazing and the food was great! I've never had a bad pizza at Mozzarella Mia and we always try to get the mozzarella tasting. The server even had a dessert sent to our table with a sparkler in it. We had a phenomenal time!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Mozza Mia! The pizza is delicious and the service is fast and friendly!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The gnoche special was delicious. Calzone not as flavorful as I expected. Deep dish pizza good. First time we had been there. We would give it another try!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food/Mediocre Service
We love the food here, but the waitress this time was inattentive, scatter-brained and slow. Took over two hours from start to finish - not that we minded spending time with our friends, but we had to wait to order drinks...then wait too long to order appetizers...then flag her down to order the meal. The food is too good to be waiting constantly unnecessarily!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time at Mozza Mia, and I will definitely go back! Everything was fresh and delicious. We had the crispy goat cheese and bruschetta as apps, and both were great. I ordered the special for dinner, which was gnocchi with bacon, cauliflower, pear and spinach -- amazing! My sister ordered the Mediteraneo pizza, which was also fantastic. We had the chocolate/hazelnut cake for dessert, and our server even put a sparkler in it for my birthday. I highly recommend Mozza Mia for fun Italian food.
