Pizzeria Mozza Ratings and Reviews
I normally love Pizzeria Mozza. This is one of the first restaurants with quality I had ever been to and this past experience left me upset. The host was not welcoming. I had made an 11:00pm reso and tried via Open Table to change it, but OT was glitching and said I was unable to. Again, I tried to change to an even earlier time and the same error message came up. I called to double check my time and the host said it was 10:30 so we arrived at 10:30 even though OT still had m my reso saying 11:00pm. The host said my table was given up because I tried changing it and he refused to look at my phone showing I have a reservation currently booked and still awaiting. We sat at the pizza counter and it was great..the food is always amazing per usual. This never seems to lack.
Our server didn’t ask how we were, never checked on us and we constantly watered our own glasses to eventually run out and need to ask because no one was checking up on us. I will always go back to Mozza but I was very sad about my last experience. Please be more welcoming. I come from South Los Angeles just to come eat here and all I want is a warm welcome (regardless of the situation).
We went to celebrate my dad’s birthday - the restaurant was extremely loud, & our first server was rather dismissive. However, once the first waiter went on break, a second waiter came and service improved. The food was awesome and the dessert was next level amazing — best gelato I’ve had outside of Italy.
I've been here several times and was fortunate to sit in the private area in the back for dinner. That was great... However this time the main dining area was not impressive. It tends to get a bit loud and its more suited for a casual date in a pizzeria. Not a lot of gluten free options either, a bit disappointed with that. Be aware, they will not seat you if your entire party has not arrived and valet parking is $14 plus tip.
My husband and I live in Colorado, but usually travel to LA a couple of times a year. Going to Pizzeria Mozza is ALWAYS on our MUST-DO list when in LA. We have been doing the paleo lifestyle for almost of year and in that time have had no grains at all, which means no pizza! We decided that Mozza would be worth the "cheat"! And OH, were we right! We always have the simple pizza with orgnaic tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella with fresh basil. Like a symphony in your mouth! The clean, fresh flavor...so pure...so delicious!! OH MY! I literally savored each bite!!! We also love the meatballs!! And, this time I got the cookbook (which they had Nancy Silverton autograph for me, as she was "in the house"!!) The service is exceptional, the wine is perfect and the food is JUST THE BEST!!!
I love this place but this time we had 5 different servers. At 5 on a Sunday. They couldn’t wait to take an empty plate or finish our sentences when ordering. When I do order I need a couple of minutes looking at the menu. The server seated us and asked us what cocktails we wanted before even checking out the menu. The restaurant was half empty so not sure what the rush was. Also sitting against the back wall, your napkin gets blown off by the AC
Food and all was good...
We were very late as my daughter locked the keys in the car....about an hour or so we lost our table even though I called twice to warn of our “lateness”....also having put a credit card down as a deposit.Host offered places at the bar instead!Which was a good resolution....
First off, valet parking at 14 $ per vehicle is a little on the high side, maybe? I could justify if there was no wait for drop-off or pick up, unfortunately not the case on a Weds evening. Several customers waiting post dinner appeared agitated and weren’t accepting without speaking their opinion. So bad impression on both ends.
We were a party of two, reserved a cpl days out, and then confirmed that afternoon. Not a prob, except that no less than 5 calls required to get a live reservation asst in order to confirm. Several empty tables when we were seated, while we ate and when we left ...
We ordered moderately, a cpl salads, a cpl glasses of wine and two individual pizzas. The fennel sausage pizza was excellent, the second...egg, potato, bacon not so much - the egg was a little too runny / undercooked for either of us. Have dined here several times in the past, this was by far, a disappointment. I’m sure we’ll give it another shot down the road, but thinking twice right now.
I was really excited to spend my 29th birthday here and everything would've been great if the 2 male hosts at the door weren't EXTREMELY RUDE when we first arrived. They were literal f-boys and I will NOT be recommending this place to friends or be going back (ever).
I have long been a huge fan of Nancy Silverton and have made nearly all the recipes in the Pizzeria Mozza cookbook so it was a thrill to be able to enjoy the dishes that I had come to love so much! As crazy as it sounds, I am not a huge fan of pizza but these pizzas are simply perfect. We were seated at what I can only conclude is the "siberia" table. . A side by side 2 top near the very bustling server station and pass, our table was jostled a hundred times by servers, runners and bussers scurrying by. Nonetheless, the food was truly delicious and the service was impeccable. . . I also very much enjoyed watching the stations function so beautifully in such a busy night. So happy to finally have dined here. . . It was worth the wait.
Delicious and inventive pizza. Recommendation for wine choice was spot on. Attentive service, though was asked three times by a server if we knew what pizzas we wanted -- felt like she was rushing us. We wanted to enjoy our appetizers first. Smallish one room place so tables VERY close together -- woodburning pizza ovens -- nice lighting (not too dark or bright). Noise level could be brought down a tad. Find parking on street if you can; valet is pricey even before tip.
Pizza is great but restaurant noise levels are way too loud and music they played was also way too loud. I could barely hear the person I was eating with which made for a very quick lunch. We didn’t bother staying for dessert for this reason.
My third time coming to this restaurant was a bust. They are trying to maximize the number of customers to the point where our two person table was crammed into the back corner. I made the reservation on Open Table a week in advance, and I thought they would save a good table for us. We were so close to the other table that they had to move it for me to come in and out. The pizza was just alright this time as well. Probably because they are too busy to put in the extra time to make it special like it was a year ago. This place is sacrificing quality for quantity and business will be affected eventually. I hope they turn it around. Or at least don't go on a weekend.
It seems silly to be writing a review of Mozza Pizzeria. It's one of the best places to eat in LA. Doesn't everybody know that already. It's been (via the Mozza Complex) on Chef's Table. Jonathan Gold rates the Mozza Complex as in the top ten places to eat in LA. Both the chef and the pastry chef have won the James Beard award. Come Awn!
Pizzeria Mozza in L.A. never disappoints! We have been going there since they first opened and have taken all our friends and visitors from all over the country. Everyone LOVES it! Their cauliflower fritti, fennel sausage pizza and mixed mushroom pizzas can't be beat, in addition to their yummy pane bianco and tricolore salad! We can't wait to go again!+
This was some of the best specialty pizza we've ever had! We tried 3 different pizzas- Salame, Mozzarella, Tomato & Fresno Chiles; Meatballs, Mozzarella di Bufala, Tomato & Fresh Oregano; Egg, Bacon, Yukon Gold Potato & Bermuda Onions...all fantastic! For dessert, we tried the Caramel Coppetta with marshmallow sauce & salted Spanish peanuts...HEAVENLY!!! Such a great meal all around! The ambience was cozy and warm- loved it!
