Food did not leave a lasting impression, it was honestly very basic and not what one would picture when eating Italian in Los Angeles. Will stick to Olive Garden, better flavor.

Finally a 5 star LA restaurant.

I used to fly around the world monthly, on business. I usually at at Michelin star restaurants courtesy of my clients.

Gwen’s was the only LA place that measured up before Curtis turned it into a high price steakhouse.

Now my wife and I have a place for our monthly dinner date.

Bottom line: it should have more than one Michelin star.

Food/Drink is overpriced for what you receive. The Kale caesar was very good and well proportioned. My wife had the pasta with Shrimp but wasn't expecting the entire prawn. And she wasn't crazy about it. The linguini with oxtail rage was good but again very small proportion. It appears this is more of a "share" type of menu, which is fine just don't charge like each plate is a full meal.

Our visit to Osteria Mozza was likely abnormal given the circumstances but I am compelled to write about this. My fiancee and I arrived for our reservation on time and were seated. We were having a great experience, service was good, recommendations were on point, and everything tasted amazing. Then the unexpected happened. A party was seated at the table next to us, a family of 3. 2 tables down was another couple who immediately took issue with the father of the family taking a phone call at the table. This escalated into a real yelling match, with both parties raising voices while standing, and involving the restaurant management. Management moved the couple 2 tables down to the neighboring restaurant. This was not the fault of the restaurant by any means but after the incident, the wait staff and managers seemed to associate us with the family that had arrived nearly 30 minutes after us and were seated at a completely different table. We were ignored and even stared down by the staff. On our way out, we offered a good night and received nothing but a cold glare from the manager. I am rather shocked and disappointed that they would associate us with a party and incident that we had nothing to do with. I expect much more from a Michelin-starred establishment and this adversely affected our overall experience.

Mozzarella sampler was delicious, as were the figs and gnocchi with duck ragu. I wouldn't recommend the rabbit.

My wife and I were visiting from Tennessee and decided to dine here on a Tuesday night with family that live here in LA. I’ve always been a big fan of Nancy Silverton and was recommended to go here by my former employer/mentor of Metropolitan Bakery in Philadelphia.
Food was amazing! Hands down, my favorite dish of the night was the Ricotta & Egg Ravioli! It was so good and perfectly cooked. I even asked for more of their amazing bread to polish off the rest of the browned butter. I ordered a plethora of dishes for the table and we shared them family style including the burrata & bacon, summer panzanella, arugula & Brentwood corn, agnolotti, orecchiette, the rosemary charred pork chop and the crispy duck confit. Everything was great! Other than my favorite, the egg rav, I absolutely loved the arugula dish, the panzanella, the burrata and the crispy duck confit! The caramelized onions on the burrata were melt in your mouth as well as the duck confit! The arugula salad was so fresh and the dressing with the corn was perfect.
I work as a pastry chef/baker so I had already chosen what to get for dessert before I even walked in the door. I was super stoked to try Chef Narvaez selection of sweet treats and she did not disappoint! We enjoyed the chocolate sesame tart, bombolini with huckleberries, and some caramel gelato, passion fruit sorbetto. The kitchen was amazing and sent us the special melon sorbet with fruit dessert they were offering that night. All of the dishes were fantastic especially the doughnut (bombolini) and the melon sorbet with all of the fresh fruit witch was packed with super sweet fresh figs, meringue and crunchy pistachios! All of the sorbet and gelato we had were packed with flavor and super smooth.
In closing if I had to say anything, our waiter was pleasant but almost non-existent. The rest of the support staff were on point and very attentive. Also the agnolotti was a little tough and the chocolate sauce on the tart kind of overpowering.

Food: While the mozzarella and burrata were delicious, there was nothing remotely remarkable about any of the other items our party consumed including pastas, salads, duck, dessert.
Wine: If you plan to dine here I would recommend that you NOT consult with their sommelier. We ordered 2 (just <$200) and both sucked. Should have gone with our own choice from the extensive wine menu.
Service: No big complaints; they did their job. But it was remarkable how unhappy they all seemed. No one other than the person who initially sat us ever smiled. We had a birthday in our group and two of us mentioned it to our waiters separately (we had a new waitress when the first guy went on break), before we ordered desserts, and neither of them seemed to acknowledge it.
Overall - forget their Osteria and go to their Pizzeria next door instead; you'll have a much better experience.

This is an excellent restaurant. The mozzarella bar certainly lives up to expectations, and both the pasta and meat dishes were outstanding. We ordered a variety of other small plates and I truly believe you cannot go wrong choosing from their menu.

Unfortunately, during our visit they had run out of several menu items, including 2 of 11 pastas (both of which we had hoped to order) and 2 of 5 desserts. This is disappointing, as this was a special occasion, and you would like to have full menu access.

They absolutely deserve their Michelin star, but I recommend an earlier rather than later reservation to ensure the whole menu is available.

We liked almost everything: The food was sensational and the service top notch. Our only complaint is the time between courses. It took about 20 minutes between each course and that seemed excessive. Perhaps, this is standard procedure at the restaurant?

I came to Osteria Mozza for my birthday after watching Nancy’s Chefs Table episode looking for a great experience. Overall the food was very salty and not particularly well plated. The Mozzarella tasting held some very good burrata but he normal and smoked versions weren’t all that great. The rolled octopus was pretty good although the greens that it was on were better than the actual octopus. The yellowtail collars were very salty and a little fishy tasting.

For this level of cost I expected a higher level of sophistication and consistency between courses.

The pluses are that the restaurant is very pretty and the service was excellent.

We were seated by the waiter (and they are all men) station so I had butts in my face and got bumped constantly the entire night since the space is pretty small.

Oh well, it was worth a try.

Responded on August 28, 2019

Next time you visit, i recommend requesting a table in the Patio room. It is smaller and off the main floor, so the tables have less movement around them. Our plating is always rustic and our chefs season all of our food aggressively, but if you ask your waiter we are always happy to pull back on the salt where we can. I hope you will give us another try. We would love to make Osteria Mozza one of your favorite restaurants!

This review can not begin without super praise for our waiter Mike. He was at the top of his game. We had to wait a bit from our reservation time, but it afforded some relax time in the bar to wind down from evening traffic. Table location was ideal, with some privacy while we celebrated our Anniversary. The food was very good, though my wife's lamb chops were a bit too over done. My pasta and crab dish was wonderful. Appetizers were, as usual, spectacular (burrata and egg plant and fig with pancetta and fromaggio de parma) and desert was delicious. Marvelous evening for a couple who have celebrated 49 such Anniversaries and with meals like this it never gets old.

Panzanella salad was excellent, Nancy’s Cesar and tagliatelle were good... I make a better cacio e pepe, burrata and leeks wasn’t good and the burrata was not of good quality, the fennel and pork chop had too much fennel pollen, the rib eye cap was in a French onion soup and wasn’t worth the calories or the money. Service was good... overall it wasn’t worth the cost.

We had great expectations but we got very disappointed.
The place is pretentious.
The food was mediocre, we had a better octopus at the Cliff Edge.
The fish was too dry and came alone on the plate without any.
Too many guys with suits going around doing nothing but asking if everything is OK.
The pasta was served before the 2 appetizers we ordered.
We're definitely not going back.

Nice vibe with great service. Best Caesar salad I’ve ever had. Fresh pasta was delicious I just wish the portions were a bit bigger since we didn’t order a secondi. Desserts were also terrific. Chocolate tart could do without the fudge sauce so the tahini sorbet and halva could shine a bit more.

On your next visit, you can ask for the fudge sauce on the side of the Chocolate tart. I hope that will help make your next visit a 5 star meal!
