It has been quite a few years since I first dined here and it was still really great! There is something special about a restaurant that can sustain for a long period and still keep up the standards and quality you can expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Its nothing groundbreaking or inventive, but just really good representations of authentic italian style food with a california twist.

If you have never been, check out the Netflix series Chefs Table season 3 episode 3 and you will understand why Nancy Silverton is so great!

We brought two kids and they loved the pasta!

This was our worst dining experience at Osteria Mozza. We were seated in the main dining room where the table had 6-inches of space next to the adjacent table. There was absolutely no privacy. The waiter was terrible. We had to order immediately or risk not seeing him for 30-minutes. We had to ask for the bread server, otherwize no bread was offered. The food was outstanding, but the dining experience was not worth the $200 we paid for two.

Recommend that you do not visit Osteria Mozza unless you get seated in the private dining room. The staff in that room is excellent.

Osteria Mozza didn't live up to my expectations. The food was great but everything around it spoiled the overall experience. The service was mediocre, we spent our time trying to find our waiter and the tables are too close to each other. There are not enough wines by the glass, and the ones they have a really expensive.
We were there for a birthday which I added into my reservation notes and the hostess never gave the message to our waiter so when desert came, there was nothing special that was done. We left very disappointed. Food is one thing but the experience is everything.
We won't be going back.

This was our first time here. We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We came a few minutes after our reservation time and seated right away. Service and attention were top class. My wife is expecting and she was recommended some mocktails that were delicious. Food was incredible. Highlight was the mozzarella with honey and walnuts. We will come back, as well as to try the other two Mozza eateries.

Nancy Silverton is a terrific chef and this restaurant could have had everything going for it. Unfortunately the food that we had on our visit was second rate at best. The burricotta was watery instead of creamy, and the grilled octopus was just OK. Perhaps the most disappointing part of our meal was the pasta. The tortelloni and raviolo were ordinary and the tagliatelle was ruined because the oxtail ragu was too salty. We also tried the yellowtail collar, which was decent. But the smoked black bass was a concept that did not work. The fish had plenty of smokiness, but the process robbed the fish of its richness and freshness, which was a real shame. Simply said, it is not the kind of execution that should be expected of a first rate kitchen.
The wine list is heavy with bottles that are over $100, and you have to look hard for a few that are not.The front of the house was super friendly and courteous, but the wait staff was rather indifferent. The overall experience was surprisingly unsatisfying, but it may be what one can expect from a Bastianich partnership. It is a shame.

Our waiter was never available for us. We were with a very good friend that was going through radiation for cancer and she was not drinking alcohol, as I was not because I was driving and we live on west side. The waiters were always at table next to us that was ordering a bottle of wine for each course. We asked for dessert menus, after 20 minutes of not receiving them, we asked for our check. We were there for 2 hours, only had 2 courses! Valet parking $14 for a 15 minute wait for car. I don’t understand the hype for this restaurant, NEVER going back and telling all my friends about our experience

Still one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. Even though the valet is always a mess, tables for two are too close together & the restaurant can get super loud, it doesn’t ruin much as Mozza is just so consistently great with every dish & nop notch service throughout.

Me and the Lady have been living in Los Angeles for around 4 years now (San Francisco 12 before that) and we've tried the "top" l.a. restaurants we've found online for our birthday's. almost all have that 1 dish you can say is really good and recommend. Mozza was by far the best food we've ever eaten. Hands down everything we ordered tasted complex and unique. We will be making as many excuses to eat at Osteria Mozza from here on.

This was a perfect meal. Started with a cocktail at the bar- out bartender was fabulous. Warm professional and attentive. Dinner in a cozy banquet, each course was perfect. Some high points were the orrichette, tagliatelle ragu and the duck confit. Wines were delicious and a knowledgeable somm is on hand for any questions you may have. Doesn’t up sell, just wants you to enjoy your wine. Such a delicious meal

The oxtail pasta was great, if not awesome. The duck confit was underwhelming, and dry. It was tender but dry. Duck is naturally very fatty and hard to screw up.

$200 for 2 small glasses of wine, appetizer, 2 pastas and a main dish, and a dessert. All of it was underwhelming.

Very intimate, “luxe” ambiance with excellent service. Generous portions with the prosciutto and meat board for two people. We made a meal out of just those two with one pasta main between us. Olive oil that comes with the bread is good enough to drink by the glass. Not the most creative menu but it’s stocked with the staples (no pizza though, you’ll have to go next door for that).

I had dinner here several years ago and loved it. This time I was really disappointed. The menu was lame - nothing really special. The server was curt and seemed like she wished she were some else. And the food was just awful. My date barely ate any of her dishes. I was totally embarrassed because I had raved about my previous experience. We skipped dessert and found another restaurant nearby to get something good to eat.

I have been to Mozza many times. The food, the service and the ambience are superb. I generally forgo my reserved table if the mozzarella bar is open. It is a much more fun and lively experience. Their mozzarella is so fresh, delicate and flavorful, it is not to be missed.
