What Insiders Are Saying
One of LA's finest Italian restaurants, Osteria Mozza in Hollywood is still very much at the top of its game.
Genuinly friendly girls at hostess stand. Very good food. Very buzzy ambiance. Our waiter was “on it” for our entire meal.
Every time I come here I have the feeling that it used to be better. I'm not a fan of what the service has become. The waitress wouldn't let me speak and was basically choosing my dish for me. The sommelier showed up with a bottle of wine without even asking us what we liked. They ran out of tagliatelle and had no similar pastas (!) I don't think I'll be coming back next time.
was ok , Nothing special . For that kind of restaurant
the food was averaged
Really looked forward to this after waiting years to go. I'm sure the 3 tables near us all enjoyed their amuse bouche, but alas we did not get one. Not a great start. You should not have to fight with your food. The crust on the Burrata and Bacon was so tough I could not get my knife through it. Components were good but the finished dish was destroyed by the crust not being edible. Affettati Misti with Gnocco Fritto fantastic, one of the highlights. Had two pasta dishes, both were very good, could have been a larger serving for $50. Duck tasted old and the fish needs to be cleaned up by a server, lots of bones and dangerous for the diner. In regards to the vegetables with the fish, again, you could not cut them. Don't bother with dessert, fail. Brown butter cake had nuts on it that were burnt and stuck to your teeth, 2 tablespoons of gelato and half a peach all for only $14 a bargain, why not give me the whole peach. $30 corkage fee too. I get it but when most of your wines are average and triple the going price what should a person do. Would I go again, yes for the first two courses only like many diners around us. Service was very good and appreciated the time between courses too.
The food was salty. Fish, real fish, should not taste fishy. Seems like the fish was old. If you are going to serve one ravioli make sure its good. Olive oil should not pass for "sauce" its just olive oil.
Best in the city. Every dish is rich with vibrant flavor and delicious flavor.
Generous servings and great service. Loved the burrata and the platter with cold cuts.
Having heard nothing but raves about this restaurant, perhaps my expectations were unreasonably elevated. The menu is fascinating, based on the inclusion of exotic sounding ingredients that one has likely never heard of (varieties of tomatoes, peppers, pasta, etc.). Makes for interesting conversation with the waiter, but I'm not sure it translates into unusually tasty food. In a sentence, our meals were tasty and interestingly presented, but nothing especially outstanding or memorable.
Words can not describe how outstanding this restaurant is, what a fantastic meal we had!
Lovely friendly staff, great music (Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd) and cosy atmosphere.
Each dish so unique and scrumptious, will definitely be coming back!
Good food and service
I have been to Osteria Mozza several times over the past 4 years and have ALWAYS enjoyed great dining. It had become a "must go" whenever I visit LA. Sorry to say this past Wednesday's dinner was a disappointment. Someone in the kitchen loves salt. Almost every item ordered (there were 3 of us and we each ordered multiple courses), was salty to too salty - had to send one item back. My daughter and I had come to expect exceptional food from Mozza. This dinner was not up to standard and at $390 tab (before tip) not a good value proposition. THough service was, as usual, superb - may not be back.
Great food. Great service. I understand quality costs, was a $500 dinner for four. Would go back for special occasion.
This has been one of our favorite LA restaurants for a while now. This weekend we took the kids for a night out (10&13). Nancy Silverman was kind enough to come over to the table and take a photo with the kids. They had recently watched an episode of Chef’s Table on Netflix showcasing Nancy. We all admire her and her story.
If you want to experience the traditional way of eating Italian, this is the way to go...also, delight yourself with the Mozzarella Bar....lastly, meeting Nancy, was the highlight...spear no expense, though, and make reservations...
Amazing food, amazing drinks, amazing service. Will absolutely come back!
Osteria Mozza was incredible. I was visiting LA with my boyfriend and he heard about this restaurant through Chefs Table on Netflix. From the burrata, to the pasta, to the steak, to the dessert was extremely tasty and delicious. The service was even better. The waitress was so accomodating and kind. At the end of the night, she had to leave and said her colleague will be taking over. He was also beyond kind. I will be recommendating this restaurant to friends for sure !
Excellent from beginning to end. Every dish is prepared with care and high integrity. I recommend, as does just about everybody, the cheese appetizers and the pasta dishes. You don't come here for a steak in my opinion. Also, their bread is amazing, but a guy coming around with a silver tray and pair of tongs asking you which ONE piece you want is somewhat off putting. (Is it OK to ask for two or God forbid three? I didn't want to embarrass myself so I dutifully took one.)
Superb food, knowledgeable and helpful staff,generous portions that are fun to share and savor together.
Food was ok, and the service was really good. Would come back!
Consistently the best food I have ever had.
Messed up my order and didn’t offer the meal they messed up. That was very disappointing to me. The salads were very good but the dessert were not amazing.
Loved the place and the food. Server had too many mistakes on our order. Left to many thing out due to not really listening to us versus her decisions. I will come back again. We have passed this location for years.
wonderful experience, impeccable service; a great place for a special occasion
we were in a smaller dining room, so it was not super loud. The main dining room is a bit loud, but just filled with sounds of happy diners (but our smaller room was more romantic).
refreshing panzanella... world class cheeses.
All in all a delicious combination of traditional Italian done perfectly with a modern twist. Would love to return.
(please excuse lack of professional lighting for the pictures — in person the presentation was art)
What a disappointment. Formerly my favorite LA Italian restaurant, now a loser: burned prosciutto on the prosciutto/fig appetizer, one horribly salty pasta dish, one pasta dish with dry sauce. My wife is Italian American and we've been eating this food for more than 130 years between us. We'll never go back. Nice wine steward and wine list.
Dining experience. We love this place. Nancy Silverton is an incredible chef.
Our waiter Jason is A++++ awesome and so much fun!
If this restaurant was in San Diego we would go every week!
Amazing dish options with high quality ingredients. Loved the wine list and live for their cheeses!
Watching Nancy Silverton on Netflix we definitely wanted to eat at her place. We made reservations some time in advance but had be automatically ushered to a side room, not where the action was. Wine and food had been served at a very fast pace, we explizitely asked for a slower service.
Even though the food was excellent we would have preferred a real slow food Italian experience especially in a high priced restaurant.
Huge disappointment— hostess was horrible. Bartender was mixing a drink for 3 full minutes. Food was good once it arrived after an hour of waiting. Waiter was not all that there..
Loved the presentation and flavors of every dish. Lovely and memorable experience!
Great service and food.
I love the food here. I also love the experience. For me this is a special place. We come here for family occasions and we always have a memorable evening. The desserts deserve a special mention. The service is wonderful!
First of all service and food is great. Our server was not only knowledgeable on every dish on the menu but was able to explain how it's made as well. The noise level was pretty high which was not something I expected and appreciated. Food was amazing.
Despite having booked weeks in advance we had a poor table location. The type of restaurant it is and the service don’t match. Thankfully the food was great. But it should have been for the price.
After watching the Chef’s Table episode on Nancy Silverton we were very keen on coming to the Osteria for a meal and we were not disappointed. Everything was excellent, from the service to the meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
This place is still reliable for a good Italian meal. But I have to say the portions have gotten a little smaller since the last time I went. That was a little disappointing.
Reason we came Mozza, because we were inspired from chefs table. And Nancy Silverton did not disappoint! We had the Egg Ravioli, Bronzini, and the Octopus! All we're amazing! Highly recommend the Ravioli!
Food was too salty. Each part of the order came out with 15 mins down time in between. Silly.
Nancy Silverton and the team do not disappoint. Every single dish was excellent. The Orecchiette was outstanding!
Definitely one of my top 3 restaurants in Los Angeles. It never disappoints. Fabulous!
Service really good, helpful and kind. That being said, on the food side, we had a bad experience with one of the "roasted meat"; way too salty while the other was pretty good. And when you paid +USD35(out of tax), you expect the food to be good. And was not 100% the case this time which turned our gastronomy experience into a "not so good" one.
