Pizzeria Mozza Ratings and Reviews
I took my best friend for her birthday and the food was amazing. The service a disappointment. We never received our drinks and we were really asked how we were doing. Been here before and I was excited to share it with her and it was a disappointing experience.
Hands down this is the best food you are for going to get in Los Angeles. It doesn’t matter that it’s incredibly crowded and noisy, because the food is worth it!
Start with these to share; Burrata w/ pesto, Nancy’s chopped salad , and the meatballs... then hit up their amazing pizza. Lots to choose from. Again ... Worth it !
The pizza that we usually adore was awful. The crust was overcooked and crispy like a bad cracker. Server had no interest in being there and no interest in telling us about the food. It’s a real shame since Pizzeria Mozza was one of our favorite restaurants. We hadn’t been there in about 18 months. Sad that things have changed
My husband and I found out about Pizzeria Mozza through Chefs Table (Netflix). We like trying new food from different places and we just had to try this place. I think my biggest complaint is that the restaurant is very tiny and the tables are really, really close to eachother to the point that you can pretty much rub elbows with the person on the table next to you and hear their conversations. The food was very delicious though. They have a very creative menu.
Wonderful food with the pizza Jonathon Gold considers the best in LA. Nancy's Chopped Salad is justifiably famous and the Butterscotch Budino is amazing and comes with what may be the best cookies in the whole wide world--small rosemary scented butter morsels.
When we arrived at 5:30, the wine room was relatively quiet. A half-hour later, a party of eight was seated at the next table, which included two young children. They were quite loud, and the music from the next room did not help.
We were given one paper napkin for the entire meal.
I expected more.
I was thrilled to get a reservation for New Year’s Eve and they didn’t even raise their prices like every other place in town. The service was excellent and the food was amazing! On a holiday! The last time I went the food and service were both horrible and that was a random weekend and rather early in the evening so I am glad they stepped it up and it was great this time!
The food was amazing. The tables are pretty tightly thrown together however. The service was also pretty poor. Our waitress seemed overly rushed and was rude on multiple occasions. When we were leaving, another server blatantly got in my way and acted offended when I said excuse me.
I had the potato and egg pizza and hoped it would be great. It was OK. I had a slice of Margarita as well and it was good, but not great. Maybe I didn't select the best pizzas but I thought it would be out of this world from what I had heard and it turned out to be OK. To be honest I went to CPK the next night and enjoyed my pizza more (feel bad saying it but its true).
They had some great items they took off the menu. That eggplant dip thing with the pine nuts on top and the stuffed blossom things. BRING THEM BACK!!!! I found the antipasto selection was restrictive having taken them off and the replacement items you added are not as good.
We love Mozza - have gone there since they first opened and try to go as often as we can. We have introduced all our friends and family to it over the years. The restaurant never disappoints - food is always innovative, fresh, delicious! Not one person we have ever brought there has felt otherwise. The best!
This was my second experience of a Batali restaurant. My first one, in Vegas, was not great, but our group decided that it was worth a second try. For me, anyway, the experience was not to my taste. An appetizer course of lentils had a distinctly gamey meat flavor (not my favorite, and common in Batali restaurants). The pizzas were bland and insipid. It is one thing to make a pizza with prosciutto and pineapple, but another thing entirely to make the combination work better than the parts -- the effort here seems to have failed. A very noisy group at the next table did not help the dining experience.
I should, however, note that our waitress was excellent, and the most redeeming feature of this meal.
Enjoyed my experience was just disappointed about one aspect. We were there to celebrate a birthday we spent a lot of money and found out we had to pay more money just to have them cut our cake. It put a damper on the mood. I’m a business owner and am confused about what justifiable cost is associated with charging $40 to cut a cake that we brought. Very nice place but the cake cutting cost seemed a bit arbitrary.
My family and I have visited Pizzeria Mozza many times over the past several years. The last two visits have been disappointing.
Two months ago, when it was 95 degrees and swelteringly humid outside, the host would not seat us for Sunday lunch until the third member of our party arrived. He did not offer to seat us at the bar. We waited outside for over 15 minutes because we were early. Once we were seated, though, I realized that the restaurant was half empty and it remained so throughout our meal. The waitperson was not interested in serving us. By the middle of our meal, there were little flies buzzing all around us.
We visited again two days ago, for yet another Sunday lunch. Thankfully, there was a courteous hostess at the door. Regrettably, we had the same waitperson, and she was not at all attentive. She took her time getting to our table. She walked by our table repeatedly even when the dishes were empty and we were waiting for the table to be cleared.
Thank goodness the busboys were helpful and considerate. Without their work, we would not have received our food nor would we have had the table cleared of dirty dishes.
The food is consistently excellent. The hosting and waiting have declined considerably over the years. There is no welcoming ambience at all.
Since watching her show on Netflix with Mario Batari, I promised my husband I will take him there next trip to Los Angels. She was inspired to make pizzas from an Italian pizza maker Franco Pepe in Grand Italy which was voted the best pizza in all of Italy. We did get to Pepe in Grani last year Pizzeria Mozza had to be as good and it was! From the chewiness and the crispiness of the crust to freshness of the tomato sauce to the richness of the cheese was outstanding. Other people's food looked amazing as well. Not a big place but very cool ambiance with very cool Hollywood type of people.
