Seated along Highland very busy street. Last time we were seated in the back patio. Otherwise really great dinner.

We did not have the best service. The wrong pizza was made. I asked to stay away from garlic and then was brought garlic. We were outside in the sidewalk during rush hour and tons of people were walking inches away from me and my food. It was not the best mozza experience.

The pizza was one of the best we have ever had. The crust was perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The toppings were the best quality ingredients. We got the one with salami and chili, the marguerita and the meat lovers and all was delicious. We literally ate every bite. We also had the cauliflower and it was amazing with a fabulous dip. We ate outside and the cars were a little noisy but the service was awesome.

Our server Juan was the best, he made great recommendations and was very attentive. The food was timed perfectly and we enjoyed dining on the sidewalk. We had the cauliflower fritti, tricolore salad, white bean bruschette, and Brussels sprout pizza, everything was consistently delicious. Always save room for the butterscotch budino.

We were placed in a small room with a loud party of 6 people and it was very difficult to hear my girlfriend across our table. The menu was also limited because of covid and it was really disappointing. My pizza was burnt and I could not taste the peppercorn.

Our server was nice though.

Was not that impressed with the food. Perhaps I ordered the wrong item, mushroom pizza. It was OK. Everyone else seemed to be of the same opinion. Salads were tasty.

Wasn't aware that we would be seated on the sidewalk outside the restaurant, when reserving outdoor seating at the Pizzeria. Not an ideal place to sit: lots of people walking by, loud cars driving by and drivers honking their displeasure at other drivers. I kind of feel that this is where you would seat people that drop by last-minute rather than those that make reservation a month in advance. Am now aware I will need to book an indoor table when I reserve at the Pizzeria as the dedicated outdoor space in back is only for the Osteria.

We requested outdoor seating however our table was against the valet stand and we had people standing over our table waiting for their cars which was very unpleasant and considering COVID danger not very safe. The manager however moved us indoors which was better however considering the noise level in their main restaurant, we did not enjoy our dinner as we usually do

It has been ages since I went to Mozza. It seems every time I try to book a reservation, I can never get in at a reasonable time. But this time I was in luck. Both the date and time were available. Some of my favorite items were still on the menu with some new additions. They have the best burrata and cherry tomatoes. They side of bread is so delicious along with it! The meatballs are another thing I love. Wonderfully flavorful and melt in your mouth. And the pizzas are the best. My favorite is the sausage and fennel pizza. It’s what I crave when I go. Can’t wait to go back!

Excellent wait staff/servers. Pizza was delicious. Problem was we had a reservation outside and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated (overbooked?). Outdoor seating on sidewalk by loud, busy street not ideal. Loved the food and the accommodating wait staff.

If I had to live on an island with only one food for the rest of my life - it would be Pizzeria Mozza's Bianca Pizza with fennel sausage added. My family would pick the same. And to have caprese, the bread, chopped salad and Budino just made the meal 10 times better! We drive from Hermosa Beach (and have since La Brea Bakery and Campenile was a thing) just to enjoy this amazing food. The crowning moment (of the whole weekend) was meeting Nancy Silverton! When she was willing to say hi to me and my friends that were visiting from Minnesota - who read/watch everything about Nancy and adore her, we could not have been happier! Thank you for a great food, and wonderful waitstaff, and AND Nancy taking the time to greet us! Perfection!

Hadn’t been in years and was hoping it was as amazing as it had been in the past. We were seated in a dark and dingy “wine cellar” where the noise and music from the restaurant next door was pretty loud. The server forgot to put the pizza order in so while everyone else around was eating we waited. The food was outstanding but I don’t think I’ll return until they renovate and bring it back to its glory days. The bathroom (unisex) was the worst part and definitely needs a face lift.

My experience with Mozza? To summarize, Indifferent. Manager did not care that it was my mothers Bday. Did not care that online it said I would be able to order from all 3 menus and that I had told my family all about it, getting their hopes up. The Manager showed no interest in correcting the error in communication caused by them. Showed no interest in righting their wrong. Showed no interest in helping me celebrate my mothers 65th Bday. The Manager was Apathetic in my disapointment for their service. More than serving food, they serve happineds thru their food. All I got served was disapointment, anger, and frustration. I thank you for that.

It was very difficult getting the busy waiter's attention despite my location to the main entrance. There were a lot of emergency vehicles driving through that intersection near the restaurant at that hour so it was quite noisy, but that's not restaurant's fault. You should sell rolls, not just olive oil-soaked garlic bread! Loved the bolognese and the portion size.

Good food and service, but the seating outside on the street corner (covid times) with the traffic and horns, left more to be desired. Can’t wait to return to indoor eating and see what that ambiance is like.

Well, a heating lamp caught on fire, they brought everything to our table at once , a waiter put an entree ontop of a paper menu!
Nothing awful, we expected more! Food was alright, not great!

Everything was really nice, considering we are in the middle of a pandemic. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and give a solid two thumbs up!

Our server was good, however one thing our guests weren’t thrilled with was that they felt there were a lot of “unfortunately, no, sorry” scenarios. Examples include ordering an appetizer while one of our guests was running late, unable to accommodate a heat lamp when we needed to be relocated due to table turn/time limit exceeded, unable to provide bread when our guest was starving. Overall we were happy but would’ve been nice to know (most of) these things at time of making our reservation. Wil of course continue to come back!

We had a horrible experience here. The menu wasn’t in English, and our waiter wouldn’t translate the items so we looked them up on Google ourselves. We ordered drinks and were trying to decide our food when the waiter approached again and said we have 90 minutes from the time we sat to eat and we have to leave. I told him I made the reservation so I was aware of the time frame and I felt rushed and like I was not welcomed. I also told him if our food came out and the 90 minutes was almost up I hope they would be professional enough to let us finish our meal. (We had only been there for about 15 minutes at the time.) He just looked at me with a smirk and continued to try and explain why he was rushing us. I then told him I would be taking my business elsewhere and I’d like the check. He said, “Ok, do you want to talk to a manager?” So I agreed. When the manager, Shawn, came over he did not introduce himself or inquire about the issue. Instead he began to apologize about not being able to accommodate us. He wasn’t there to hear my experience as a customer and I feel like we were discriminated against. I didn’t hear Shawn, our waiter, or anyone else mention the dining time to any table around us. The sad part is I wanted to try this spot for years and when I finally manifested my wish I realized this was a place with terrible customer service. I do not recommend this spot. We left and went down the street to Sal’s and it was the best decision we could’ve made bc Sal’s food was delicious and Sal even made my cousin and I a special dish on the house. If you’re looking for good Italian food in the area, go to Sal’s on Melrose.

Been wanting to try this for over a decade. I was expecting to be disappointed since the "pizza oven - thin crust" style has really taken off and now it's not quite as unique as it was when Mozza opened. However, I was blown away by the quality and flavor of the pizzas. The ingredients were just incredibly unique and delicious. We also enjoyed appetizers and pasta. We want to go back right away! Eating on Melrose wasn't perfect, but wasn't too bad. The patio is the way to go and we will try to get a table there next time. However, it's awesome the way you make a reservation and know exactly where you will eat. Also, the service was excellent.
