We had very high expectations, but the pizzas were dry and not even close to a real Italian pizza. Disappointed.

Restaurant needs heat lamps. It’s way too cold now for outdoor dining without heat lamps.

The male host was very rude. He initially denied seating in the back and then proceeded to seat two similar parties after informing me there was nothing available in the back. We were early for our reservation.

When confronted about criteria for sitting in back (as opposited to sidewalk/street) he became irritable and snippy and said irately “I’m taking you back there!” Then he proceeded to speed walk through the alley.

Needless to say, his salty disposition set a tone for the evening as unwelcoming and cold.

Very disappointed in his inhospitable conduct. Perhaps he should be reassigned and relegated to a part of the restaurant where he does not interact with patrons. Especially at the onset of the dinner hour.

Disappointed there were no heat lamps. It was extremely cold. Perhaps you should mention on your social media/website/reservation platforms that outdoor seating does not include heaters.

Food and service by waitstaff was pleasant otherwise.

The food was beyond our expectations, and the pizza is the best Neapolitan style we’ve had in LA. Service was excellent, atmosphere was cozy, and I didn’t feel like my experience was compromised due to Covid.

Food and service were outstanding. Ambiance was fine given that it was a converted parking lot. My one complaint is that it was very cold and they didn't have any heat lamps

Seating options are either outside next to the street which is extremely noisy or in their alley way patio where the walls are covered with plywood and the smell of the sewer fills the air as you attempt to taste your food. With covid restrictions they are trying their best which I appreciate but I won't be returning.

The food was great but unfortunately, we were seated out on the sidewalk. The street noise was very loud and distracting. If I had known this beforehand, I would have dined elsewhere. We were celebrating my significant other’s new job and it couldn’t have felt further from a celebration with all of the honking/noise. Our service was spotty as well. It felt like our server kept pressuring us to order more (when we ordered more than enough).

I’d recommend dining here when things are back to normal and you can dine inside. I would not recommend dining here if you have to sit out on the sidewalk.

We were basically in tears the whole time from how wonderful the food was. Definitely try the egg and ricotta ravioli with brown butter!! It was a little loud sitting outside on a busy street but definitely worth it!

I’ve been here over 50 times over the last few years. This is absolutely my favorite restaurant in LA and it never disappoints. Exceptional service by Elyssa tonight. What a joy to have her as a server at the Pizzeria. Her service at the Osteria has always been above and beyond. Thanks to the Chef, Managers, and the entire team for another great evening.

Unusually good food in a patio atmosphere with great ambiance. Service is good but not so easy to book a table. When booking ask for the back patio.

The new outdoor patio was awesome! I hope they keep it after COVID!!! It was lovely and quiet which is the opposite of their dinning room! The menu was a fantastic combination of the two restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!

I was really excited to try the pizza in particular at Mozza. Unfortunately I was pretty disappointed. While the crust was really tasty, the toppings were very bland and left me wanting more.

First how they’ve adapted to Covid conditions is worth mention and praise. Best pizza in town maybe all of the USA. Staff knowledgeable and welcoming and service is excellent. With the valet service back parking is not a hassle. Food/ dishes inventive and delicious with a good wine selection. Being a beer guy more choice there would be ideal. Overall highly recommend. Oh! One last thing. The garlic bread is sensational.

Great service! Each course was so well prepared, well presented and a perfect temperature (despite being outside...something which cannot be said of all outdoor seating)! The wine was incredible! I can’t believe I have been willing to drive an hour each way for Chi Spacca and never made it around the corner.

I’ve been to the Mozza restaurants quite a bit and I was excited to see how they adjusted to the pandemic. I’m happy to report that their outdoor dining patio in the back was pleasant, well spaced, and airy (they also have street side tables on Highland but I can’t speak to those as I was seated in the back). The service has also not faltered and was supplemented with servers in masks and face shields. Am also happy to report that the food not only has not slipped, but that they are currently offering a blended menu from Osteria and Pizzeria (apparently they also do a Chi Spacca night on Tuesdays), so finally one can enjoy their delectable pizzas at the same time as having burrata and amazing pastas. Got to enjoy my Mozza favorites at the same meal (eg zucchini flowers, the meat pizza, the orechiette, and the butterscotch budino! As a Mozza fan and one who is trying to watch dining dollars given the pandemic economy, it was an amazing treat. Was pleased to support the restaurants who are doing their best to do the right thing during this time without compromising quality. Kudos!

Great food. Great service. Don’t love that you’re on the literal sidewalk for dining experience, but what else can you ask given the current circumstances. If you’re looking for a quiet evening, you won’t get it with the cars zooming by. Food and wine was great however. Would come back.

As we rated above, the food and service were wonderful. While we totally understand the compromises with sidewalk dining, being on the Melrose side, where we were, was a bit crammed, and awkward, especially with frequent scooter riders whizzing by, many of whom were not wearing masks. We will book again, however, and request other seating if possible because, again, the food was amazing!! Thank you.
