Food amazing as always with the pasta leading the way. Pasta with prawns kills and tortellini with butternut squash delicious. Quail and burrata crostini with artichoke yummy.
Great wine, lovely atmosphere- never disappoints

Outstanding place to eat. Worth it considering all the rave reviews and lived up to the expectations. All items were top notch. Can’t wait to try the pizzeria

Knowing this would be a pricey meal, I came into it with high expectations.

The ambiance is light, not stuffy, little on the more noisy (but not bad) side.

Staff was courteous, attentive but not obsessive and knowledgeable.

The first course honestly was incredible. What they have done with mozz and it’s related cousins is amazing. Delicious, savory, unique. I could have stopped here and you might want to strongly consider just ordering from this section of the menu alone. It’s worth it.

Pasta and meat/fish course were very good, but dwarfed in creativity and flavor, by round one. Also the pasta portions, at their price point, could have used just a little more.

Cocktails and wine were very good and appropriately varied.

I don’t rate individual dishes, sorry. I like to see a location from 30,000 and give an overall recommendation.

8.8/10 rating, strongly recommend.

The mozzarella tasting was the best mozzarella we have had! Pasta was flavorful and our waitress give us some wine tastings to see which wines we preferred with our food. The bombolinis were light and airy yet delicately sweet and went perfectly with the vanilla gelato and huckleberry compote. The food was amazing and lived up to its appearance on chefs table!

Excellent! The food was amazing and the ambiance was nice. Great drinks at the bar - try the Gordon’s cup.

The dishes are good for sharing, so we got a few to try. Some of our favorites:
Grilled octopus
Crispy duck confit
Oxtail tagliatelle
Pork shank

Definitely going back!

Love this place in every way. You’re treated like a star even when not and there’s plenty there. The food is absolutely the best and the sauce this time was just like my Italian Gramdmas perfection. The Bread of course is the best but the olive oil to dip is transcendent!

We had the Caesar salad that is unique and delicious and i had the Orreciette with Swiss chard and sausage which was so flavorful and soothing and wonderful.

Did early valentines and was romantic even though bustling. Can’t wait to go again.

Service and food has gone downhill. Waiter never acknowledged my wife’s birthday. Lamb shank was not cooked enough and very chewy. We have been at the restaurant several times but now we will go elsewhere.

8 years ago I was blown away - but taking my fiance for her birthday Monday night, I was really let down. Service was moderate, guy didnt seem to want to be there for the most part. Bread was overly drenched in olive oil, like wayyy too much. Nancy's Ceasar was the best thing we had, and the coconut ice cream. Pasta's were bland or overly dressed, Short Rib was overcooked... just an off night maybe? I LOVE Nancy and Joe... but man this was a bummer. Especially with Pizzeria Mozza and Chi Spacca being so incredible.

The food was great....except they really missed it big time on the Linguine Aglio Olio with Shrimp. Watery and just incredibly disappointing dish - especially at $32. Would not expect this from Nancy Silverton, considering this restaurant has a Michelin Star. Price definitely not worth it. Sorry.

Hostess: I have to seat the 9:15 reservations first.

We really didn’t care what she has to do first. It’s not welcoming to say that. Sounded snobbish. Also another hostess didn’t care to say goodbye on the way out after spending $200 for 2

They come across as a snob! It’s too bad bc the servers and food are great.

It was my birthday, and the food came out so late at every turn. I complained and they made me fill out a card for the manger to call me and he never did. Very disappointed because I chose this as my restaurant for a birthday celebration.

An astonishingly great meal from start to finish. The back room that also functions as a wine library is elegant and a bit less noisy and crowded, if that's what you're looking for. I also love to sit in the middle of the action at the mozzarella bar. Of particular note was the lamb shank and winter vegetable puree. I'll dream about that dish for years to come. The wine service was spectacular, helpful, and very pleasant. Our waiter is a very nice person and with some coaching and training could improve. His personal style did not match the elegance of the restaurant and stood out compared to other staff we interacted with.

For the price point and hype around this spot, the service was pretentious (borderline rude)...food was solid/good, but I don’t think warrants another trip back.

Osteria Mozza remains one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. Expensive, yes. But unlike many of the overpriced LA restaurants, it is worth the expense and worth the visit. Food is always special, staff attentive but not claustrophobic, ambiance lovely.

+ Grilled octopus and bambolini desert were impressive.
+/- Seafood Linguine was very good but a bit too spicy for me.
- Our clothes and hair smelled very strongly of deep-fried oil after the dinner
- We were celebrating my wife's birthday and didn't get any compliment (small dessert etc.) from the chef on this event

Osteria Mozza never disappoints. It is a bit pricey, but one never feels like he/she has overpaid for the experience. The food is of extremely good quality and perfectly prepared, the noise level quiet enough so diners can enjoy a conversation, the decor is elegant, yet fun and lively, and the staff are extremely attentive, yet not overly so. The restaurant has maintained its quality over the years, and still offers some dishes that one doesn't find anywhere else, such as Nancy's Caesar.

Our reservation was 7:00pm and we arrived at 6:30pm.
There are so many empty tables but they said they can’t give us a table until 7:00pm.
Wish they could be more flexible with warm hospitality.

I do not like a restaurant that will not seat you until your entire party is there and you can't get to the bar because too crowded and not enough room.I will never go there again. I was perfectly willing to buy their very expensive drinks while sitting at the table I reserved
