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.

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

Love Osteria Mozza. When we travel from SF we always book a table here. The Negroni is first class and Italian food is as close as you can get to Italy in the states. We love fine dining and feel that this is one of our absolute favorites in all of SD, SF and LA. We will see you next year!

The food was wonderful. Except for the roast duck which was over salted and nothing special compared to the pastas and first dishes like the mussels and Brussel sprouts and mozzarella. They were divine. The service was friendly but not highly attentive. The room , the back room was perfectly comfortable and inviting. There was no commotion as there might have been up front . I had a really nice evening. The prices are high for me. It was 300 $ for 3 of us to eat. Obviously there were lots of people there on a Tuesday night who thought nothing of it. I would go back, on an occasion.

VERY GOOD: Grilled octopus, burrata with bacon, Ricotta & egg raviolo, Lamb with root vegetable puree, Rosemary olive oil cakes with olive oil gelato (octopus, raviolo and gelato were our favorites)

O.K.: Mozzarella tasting, Gnocco frito, gnocchi with duck ragu, Tagliatelle with oxtail ragu (underwhelming)

NOT GOOD: Complimentaey bread (served cold, dry and tough), Grilled steak tagliata (edges extremelytough, almost inedible), Torta della none (too dry, tasteless) (would never order again)

Atmosphere was nice, and service was good. But nothing spectacular. I would go back for some more grilled octopus and raviolo with ricotta and egg.

Very expensive, but the really good dishes are worth it.

I cannot express to the whole team at Osteria Monza how overwhelmed I am at their attention to detail and their overwhelming hospitality. From our greeting at the hostess station, to the impeccable Gimlet and conversation we had with the bartender. From our server Pat who made excellent recommendations, to our sommelier whom we trusted to pick us an excellent and affordable red, and of course the dedicated and talented kitchen crew, we were blown away by the flavors and pairings and techniques and presentations of the many many delicious dishes we were offered. The Gnocchi pillows with proscuito, the orecchiette with ox tail ragu and the quail were special hits with our table. Even the gentleman who was maintaining the line at the restroom when the women's was out of commission was pleasant and welcoming. It was a true delight to edit and showcase the food served by Chef Liz on "Masterchef Season 10", but it was a true honor to be served by such exceptional professionals on every level and I cannot thank Osteria Mozza enough for their generosity! -Molly

We do not typically eat at really nice restaurants like this, so for us it is a special occasion. It seemed like it took a longer than normal time for us to get menus and drinks after we sat down. But once the service got rolling, it was very good. There is a time lag between courses, but that was good. It allows you to digest a bit. For appetizers we had the octopus (excellent) and the dates with speck (good, but too sweet for some and also somewhat greasy. This would obviously be to be expected, I just wouldn't order it again.) For pastas, we were given a little guidance by the waiter, but not as much as we had hoped. We three shared the orrecchiette with sausage, the tagliatelle oxtail ragu, and the raviolone with ricotta and egg. All were each excellent but together they were very heavy. The portions are indeed small here, but the food is very rich. For secondi we ordered the quail and the sea trout. Both were excellent and beautifully presented, but by then we were full from the pastas. (We were not sure what "sea trout" would be, and I would describe it as similar to salmon.) There was a steady supply of different delicious breads to try during the meal.
We did end up getting 2 desserts, the apple borsellino (very good) and the espresso semifreddo (very chocolaty but not too sweet, I enjoyed it.) Somehow we were not in the mood for the popular dessert, the bombollini, but will try it next time. I give this restaurant 4 stars because for this money I had high expectations. They were mostly met, but not exceeded.
