Best Italian in valley - super sweet atmosphere, great service
Service was quite slow. Otherwise all was good. Pasta was excellent.
Best Italian food in la!!! Noah is amazing amazing waiter but Eugene is the worst waiter I have ever had at a restaurant . Never have I seen so much attitude from someone I am paying for food and service. Literally the worst!
Quaint perfect local restaurant. Good is always good, reasonably priced and fantastic service.
Our waiter was great. He made good suggestions on both food and wine. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Great service outdoor seating marginal adjacent to parking lot cars starting and stopping. Pizza great pasta acceptable and nice size portion. For price and food above average nice waiter service overall very acceptable.
Perfection!!! I love this place! Food is divine!!
We went with two other couples. First timer here. The service was excellent. Our waiter made good suggestions and they delivered all our meals together in a timely fashion. The food Was very good 5
Of us had pasta dishes and my wife has the chicken. The appetizers were also good and everything was plated very nicely. We sat in their patio area which was very comfortable. I would recommend to others.
food was very good with nice size portions and reasonable priced
Will definitely go back
Noah helped our table and he was fantastic. Friendly, good with suggestions and great with service. The gentlemen helping with busing the table was great too. If you like a bit of spice in your food, the The sauce on the Shrimp Fra Diavolo pasta was great. I don't eat shrimp, so I got that on the side.
Food was hit or miss. Good service and ambiance but very pricey.
Food is fantastic, service too slow. Can’t blame the servers since there are understaffed
Chef personally served us his favs. Excellent everything.
Greatly enjoyed my dinner with the wine last night.
Chicken and shrimp were good - terrific service - patio dining
Nice outdoor patio. Good service. Good us always good. Love the cacio e Pepe. Artichoke salad is excellent. Interesting wines by the glass.
I always love this place. The food is simply fantastic. I am pretty sure the pastas are homemade. Last nite my daughter had Cacio e Pepe and I had the Bolognese both were amazing and my sin had the fungi pizza-soooooo good! Highly highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
What a gem! I’ve passed Mora a 1000 times and never took notice. After reading the reviews, I had to try and we were not disappointed. The attention to detail on each plate, the subtle flavors and use of fresh herbs was outstanding. The pasta took me back to one of my favorite Roman restaurants. We will definitely be back!
Food was delicious. Good ambience. Outdoor seating was nice, quite volume until around 8pm, then a little noisy.
Always great. Love the food especially the pizza. Staff is superb.
Outstanding food and service.
The food was delicious. Best Caesar salad I ever had. Amazing pizza. Cheeses were phenomenal. Delicious pasta.
Love this place …so yummy !!!
Dinner was delicious. Ingredients, preparation, and presentation excellent. Love the artichoke salad.
Only complaint is that the pizza was a tad too saucy, making it soggy.
I think the restaurant a bit more to make the outside more attractive....possibly plants, a mural. Kinda boring as is.
Food was very delicious, definitely authentic Italian, which is hard to find in the US. However service was not so great - I felt like we got the “you don’t belong here” treatment…
The food was phenomenal they could be a little better with the service though!
Lovely dinner, attentive staff
Always a great spot to eat and drink some wine 🍷
I had high expectations for Mora reading the positive reviews and friends recommendations. For some reason I felt very unwelcomed here . We had to wait for 20 minutes for our reserved table as another party who had finished eating talked and talked, etc,,,no effort by the staff to nudge them along. We basically did not have a waiter, and were ignored for the first 10+ minutes, the guy with the glasses who seemed very non-friendly eventually (20+min) took our order. He was in a bad mood about something???
The food was good, no complaints, the wine very good. Other tables were getting better and faster service, not sure why, maybe our demographics were bad? (old boomers) Try take out for pizza next time.
We felt welcome the minute we stepped in. Great service, great food. We had the mushroom pizza and 2 pasta dishes. All were wonderful!
Mora was out of the only fish dish they offer
Great food always!
Service I was wondeeful
Overpriced. Everything finished with olive oil..
Love this restaurant! Charming, attentive waiter, wonderful food... a neighborhood gem. The pizza, the salads, the pastas... all delicious...
Food and service was great. I definitely will go back!
Our server, Eugene, referred to Mora as a hidden gem, and nothing could be closer to the truth. Set far enough away from Ventura Boulevard, traffic noise was minimal from the lovely outdoor dining area. They have a terrific wine list and a menu with just enough choices - and they all sounded delicious! I had the Pinot Grigio (OK, 2 glasses), shared the roasted brussels sprouts and for the entree, the Pomodoro. Everything was delicious!! The portions were just the right size for a satisfied feeling without being too full. And from the second we walked into the restaurant for our table, the staff was friendly and helpful, and I feel like we have a new pal in Eugene. Highly recommend this hidden gem!!
Food always perfect. Everyone very nice. Reservations a must.
Very good neighborhood joint: good Italian food. The salads and pizza were great, as was the ricotta cheese cake. Bottarga pasta not as good as pre-pandemic for some reason.
But a lovely place to relax outside and eat a very good dinner.
