Hate to Say It
I hate to let everyone in on this little secret as this is a small restaurant located upstairs in a tiny strip mall. I like being able to get in when I want as I live in the neighborhood. Unfortunately I would be doing you and the restaurant a dis-service if I did not let everyone know how great the food and service. It is romantic in it's simplicity. It has a very nice patio that looks down onto the street but in some strange way is very nice. Make no mistake, you come to this restaurant for the food, the service and the wine selection. They make you feel special. Enjoy.

Had a great meal!
The meal was great start to finish. I had a salad with burrata that was as fresh and flavorful as if I were in Naples. And my pasta -- the special of the day with beet pasta and a Gorgonzola and walnut cream sauce -- was light but intensely flavorful. Finally a fig tart was amazing with the perfect crust. The wine list covers the breadth of Italy and there are some good values as well as top quality big ticket wines. Finally, the service was friendly and effective without being intrusive. There are few Italian restaurants in LA as good.

A wonderful unexpected find !
Even on the fourth or fifth visit, Mosto Enoteca was wonderful. Casual, open to the Marina, full of life and good aromas as we entered... this was a good place to enjoy and to linger, even after the delicious meal was over. The waiters - Mosto and his staff - are absolutely great, attentive, knowledgeable. And the food! Delicious pasta, the ragu is fabulous, the burrata is delicate, and the longostina! ... everything! We'll be back..

Well hidden Italian gem just north of the Marina. Pasta is like you were in Italy. it is well hidden on the second floor of a strip mall, but dining experience inside is excellent. Trust the people working there to steer you in the right direction - order what they tell you.

delicious food...service a bit iffy
We really loved the scallop appetizer and salad with apples. Those came promptly. Our entree was very slow to arrive but delicious when it did. Not sure if that was a one time glitch but it was hard to get anyone's attention when we tried to inquire. Still, the food was very good and we would try this place again.

Service was so-so, food was spot on
Go for the food. You will have some of the best pasta you have ever tasted. Light, creamy, without being too light to stand up against its sauce. Service was spotty, and for a restaurant of its size, it needn't be.

Mosto is excellent
The salmon appetizer was delicious. The tuna and butternut squash ravioli were likewise fantastic and the cannoli made this evening complete for my Sicilian wife. Grazie mille!!

Very Very Good.

Surprising foodie food
This creative chef makes this experience one of the best in the area. Homemade pasta and some great seafood fit for foodies and all alike. Must sit on the roof top with some nice views. Beautiful wine list and very knowledgeable wait staff. Great experience.

Amazing Authentic Italian
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.

Deliciousness in an unexpected site
One does not usually find themselves on culinary adventures when at a strip mall, but that was exactly what happened here. From an interesting cheese selection to savory specials, if you are looking for a change in pace from the standard strip mall dining this is certainly it. The outdoor patio also provides a beautiful sunset view. Good for the casual romantic or the adventure seeker, you will not be disappointed.

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.
