We were very excited to celebrate my wife's birthday at Osteria Mozza. We had a 9 PM reservation. I understand 9 PM is a little late but half of the items we wanted to eat on the menu were not available for the day. It kind of dampened our evening. We travelled 1:30 hrs to get there. If it was a close by restaurant, we would have just walked out!
In short, we were forced to try items we weren't really interested in. They were still pretty decent though but really disappointed that we could not try some of our choices.
food was quite salty and items on the menu were sold out
As a professional chef, this meal ranks in my top ten. The burrata and peach starter was outstanding. The ravioli with butter and 25 yr. old balsamic was plate-licking good. The Tagliata was superb. And the butterscotch budino with the Madiera was an incredible pairing. Service was top rate. Was that enough superlatives? Lol Srsly, all true.
Mozza is a long time favorite. Most of our dishes were great as always. However, the hangar steak was much too salty, and the orata was a little over cooked. Service was a little off. Our water glasses were empty much of the meal. We'll be back again though.
We started with the mozzarella with peach & prosciutto, then had a pasta filled with chicken & veal, along with the garlic bread. We also has the sliced steak, sea trout and gnocchi with duck ragu. Everything was SO tasty, and the service was friendly and very attentive. I wish this place was closer to where we live!
Food and service was absolutely fabulous!! Will go again !
Osteria Mozza never disappoints. The toughest part of dining there is deciding which of the outrageously tempting items to order from the menu. Dinner was amazing.
This would have been a 5 if not for the following:
1) Romans in Italy would frown upon the very spicy Bucatini All’amatriciana - it has onions ❌ tons of what appears to be chili powder ❌ three pieces of guanciale that tasted more like pancetta 👎 noodles wasn’t al dente rather undercooked 👎
2) limited selection of vodka ans no blue cheese stuffed olives nor did they offer to make them (typically a sign of a great customer centric Resto)
3) Thankfully we brought our own wine, Solaia 2010 by Antinori bec their wine list is very limited.
4) The man who cleared plates and set up tables - think he’s the busboy but makes us wonder 🤔 as he kept rushing us in between plates. One of our Burrata appetizers was untouched when he first came over and asked “are you done?” My husband & I were quite surprised. Then he came over a number of times because we were taking time with our pasta dishes 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
We loved Mozza & saddened about our experience. Our last visit was 2018 and made a point to dine here when we visited from Denver
Our server, Jen, was incredible. She made the experience even better than the excellent food quality already did. The sommelier was super helpful to our wine selection. We sat at the Mozzarella Bar and really enjoyed the energy.
The 2 appetizers were delicious, flavoring was just right.
The 2 pastas were delicious Except they were very SALTY and over seasoning. Need to ask for less sodium on the pastas.
The last item was Crispy Duck which was very good, but also a little salty.
The staff were very friendly, they had a deep knowledge of the menu and the food was exceptionally good. Definitely worth the visit
I arrived at 6:30pm on a Wednesday Summer evening to a beautiful restaurant, only to be escorted to a back parking lot "patio". Absolutely NO effort was made to make this environment appealing. HORRIBLE setting. I understand COVID restrictions have been forced restaurants to create makeshift spaces, but this dining space was most certainly not worth the $600. I paid for my out of town guest to have a meal.
Overall, food was just OK even if you don't take the price into account. I was surprised it has one Michelin star.
Expect to pay around at least $150 per person and as other reviews have mentioned, if you have a reservation that is later in the evening, expect that there will be a few items not available.
Overall I wouldn't go back, there are better options available for Italian food with better ambiance, cost and service.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in LA and I chose it for my birthday dinner place since I no longer live in LA and was going to be in LA for my birthday.
One of the best food experiences I’ve had. Taste that rivaled or even topped good pasta in Italy. With having the restaurant open inside and the open area outside, service seemed to suffer slightly as we were delayed in ordering. However, our server was great. It just seemed the restaurant couldn’t handle the extra dining space and amount of guests on top of their original capacity.
Cannot say enough that this was one of the best meals I have had in years.
Food was delicious, service was attentive. However, the noise levels were extremely high, especially considering we had a 10pm reservation. The patrons were contributing to noise, in addition to the overly loud music. It was a struggle to hear someone across the table.
Flavor was good but didn’t really live to the expectation. Everything was on the salty side, including the bread which we had to pay for. The duck confit was like a half duck on a plate on its own without any presentation. The breast bone was not taken out either which I never saw in a confit course. While the idea of the dish is good, kinda disappointed on how it was executed especially in a high-end restaurant like this.
Best meal I’ve ve ever had.
The food is to die for, and the service was impeccable.
I was excited to try this restaurant for my birthday- I was expecting fantastic food and it was more than fantastic ! It was more than worth the hour drive and I will definitely be back!
Probably remains one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. Still returning after 12 years. amazing food and warm knowledgeable service. Not inexpensive but still a top choice. Bar tender skimped a bit on the first 2 martinis last night but the third was normal. Also had to ask for more A/C: hot and stuffy when we arrived at 7:15 but was immediately addressed.
Always great, always delicious, always something interesting happening on the menu along with old favorites. I wish they would figure out their ventilation though — it was hard to breathe in there with the kitchen smoke, and you come out stinking.
Outstanding in all regards. It is truly a special place to dine. I always look forward to returning.
The food was brilliant! The Burrata with Sun Gold tomatoes was out this world. All ingredients perfect. The toasted bread is a MUST. Duck confit was sublime perfection as were the seasonal corn ravioli with sage. The best restaurant in Los Angeles.
Excellent food and service.
It is good. But it's not one Michelin star good.
Unique dining experience. I have never had traditional Italian food and it didn't disappoint.
F#%king Awsome!!!! Great food, great service. Pasta really fresh!!!
I have wanted to go to this restaurant for years! After dining at Pizzeria Mozza again and again and loving it each time, we decided to go to Osteria Mozza for a casual but special family dinner. Would not bring two teenagers here again-they would have been far happier next door eating at the pizzeria. Osteria is a beautiful room, with low lighting and gorgeous colors and furnishings. The wait staff was commanding and informed. The menu was frankly a bit overwhelming, if only because the waiter encouraged us to order all items immediately instead of in stages. It felt a bit pressured and rushed as a result. Cocktails and wine by the glass only helped with that. We had two mozzarella courses, which were delicious but not life-changing. The pastas were strong favorites-linguine and clams was the best. Yellowtail and filet for main courses-they were each perfect. Dessert was a bit underwhelming but, again, delicious. I guess my takeaway was, expertly prepared food, perfectly plated and creatively conceived, but simply overpriced. I would have been just as happy eating pizza and squash blossoms next door.
We loved it! Beautiful dining room, great service, delicious food, couldn’t have asked for a better night!
10/10 but we’re both lactose intolerant so painful night after
Mozza is always great. The food and service are exceptional.
Honestly I was disappointed. I came here after hearing that masterchef legend Nancy Silverton was the co-owner with masterchef judge Joe Bastianich. I wanted to experience Italian food at its highest level and instead found myself with a side of salt and pepper on my table as I found myself using the word bland too often. Specifically the shaved brussel sprouts, and insalata lacked more flavor than should be acceptable at any restaurant. The Bavette Cacio pepe was all pepper with no other dimensions to it. I expected to be blown away and out of 9 dishes only one blew me away which was the sweet corn pasta dish. Otherwise the food was mediocre at best, unimaginative, the decor and setting were great, and the bathroom was subpar as far as cleanliness. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience what a high standard restaurant should be.
Food and service were fabulous. Summer corn and mushroom pasta was so good I wanted to order a second. Peaches and burrata excellent, gnocchi fabulous, and yellowtail yummy. The bread was good, but very oily as it is soaked in olive oil.
Elyssa, our server, was a complete gem and was attentive and helpful.
We were seated outside in a garden area that looks like it may have been started during COVID. It had its own charm and it was a beautiful night but if it is to stay as permanent serving location, it might be nice to change out the plywood walls for something better suited to the quality of the restaurant. Music just a little loud out there for the 4 of us but very tolerable. That being said, we all enjoyed eating al fresco on a beautiful LA night. Pricing was what we expected except for maybe the $62 lamb chops-we took a pass on these-but happily, enjoyed everything we ordered and can’t wait to go back!
We have been to Osteria Mozza many times in the last 8 years. We’ve also patronized Mozza in Newport Beach. We find the dishes on the visit last week to be very disappointing. We ordered the grilled octopus and Mozzarella di Buffalo with Cantabrian anchovies and garlic toast. We will not order that combination of mozzarella di buffalo again as the flavorings overpowered the beautiful, delicate cheese. The Cacio e pepe and linguini and clams were both overpowering in flavor. The cacio e pepe had so much pepper that all I can taste is the coarsely ground pepper. The linguini and clams were very spicy, so much so that I can’t even taste the clams. The pasta itself is very good and cooked al dente. Our entree of grilled whole orata was a very small fish, grilled perfectly, but had a thick layer of herbs/greens that overpowered what would have been a great dish. None of us at the table thought the grilled beef tagliatelle was that good.
The food is amazing. The pasta had the texture of perfect little pillows. The pasta was so good that I couldn't keep my eyes open while chewing. A literal mouth-gasm. Toe curling and everything.
The service was excellent and the meal was well-paced. Everything tasted excellent.
Dinner was absolutely amazing. The service was excellent with plates being whisked away as soon as they were empty without feeling rushed.
The burrata with peaches was absolutely delicious. The egg and ricotta raviolo was perfectly cooked. The tagliatelle with oxtail Argo was excellent but perhaps a bit much for a primi for me.
My partner and I shared the Filet Mignon as a secondi which was a perfect size for sharing. We closed the meal with a light dessert and left feeling happy but not overly stuffed. I highly recommend dinner at Osteria Mozza.
Amazing as always! Their seasonal peach and burrata appetizer was OUTSTANDING.
We have been going to the Osteria since it opened and always love the food and the setting. Last night we picked this place with 2 of our friends to go back to after a year of not seeing each other.
While the food as always was very good, the service was terrible, awful, rude, invasive and completely disappointing. Everytime the waitress arrived, she barreled up to the the table shouting, 'Right! what will it be!' Not only did she completely interrupt our conversion each time she was completely unaware of all our aghast looks when she did and quite annoyed the one time were we asked for a minute. She wanted the order/answers now and consolations about deaths and breakups could wait!
The sommelier was great and the only other flaw was having positioned the table right next to the cutlery drawers so every 10 mins or so a busboy would come by and noisy drop off and rearrange all the cutlery right at our ear level, again ending our conversations and felt completely and unnecessarily invasive, might as well have being sitting by the dishwasher.
