I have been to Mozza many times and always given a 5 star review. This time I can’t.
- The pizza was good but a little too stiff.
- Ordered the spaghetti calcio e Pepe , way too salty.

There was a very loud guy sitting close to us , this is not the restaurant’s fault , just annoying. Maybe separating the tables a little more would help.

Drove by the restaurant and decided to book a table via Opentable. Got there early and had a glass of wine, bartender shared his recommendations and was spot on. Food was tasty and fresh. Ordered the meatballs and a pizza and was not disappointed. Wine selection was also good.
A bit cold outside so bring a jacket, the patio heaters work well when there is no wind.
Looking forward to going back again.

We were excited to discover this restaurant. After watching an Emeril Lagasse show about pizza in Italy with the owner, Nancy of Pizzeria Mozza, we looked up where her restaurants were since we live in Southern California. We were able to get late night reservations on a Saturday. The food was excellent from the starters to dessert. Our waiter was very helpful and accommodating. We cannot wait to return!

Outstanding! Truly.

Atmosphere: the ambiance was warm and inviting....everyone we encountered from the valet, to the wait staff was friendly and professional.

Server: a customer's dream.....great personality, attentive and well versed in wine.

Food: delicious! A bite of their pizza takes you back to Italy....seriously.

I love eating out on their beautiful “terrace” with the tables spaced much more than 6 feet apart, everyone’s wearing masks, & boy, do they keep up with the Covid cleaning. Their amazing service continues and oh, those pizzas! Kudos to the manager and his team. We are so lucky to have a world class restaurant like Mozza in Newport.

Always delicious and frankly, we find their new digs in the parking lot cozy, comfortable and reminiscent of many delightful spots in Italy. They’re making the best of the situation, and consequently no part of the dining experience is sacrificed. Well done, as always.

The food is always top notch but I've always been bothered my the music... it's too loud and it's terrible rock music from the 70s and 80s. How about something a little more classy, like Pavarotti or Sinatra?

We found Pizzeria Mozza during the pandemic and loved how they converted their parking lot to a dining area complete with flowers and strings of lights overhead. The staff is superb and the food is the best! We now go at least once a week (sometimes twice!).

We dined here on 12-13-20 with a 6:30pm table for 2.
The Host (or Manager) who was seated at the outside host stand was not in a good mood. We arrived 15 min early and were seated promptly but without enthusiasm and also was ignored when we left despite no one else around. Service was less than enthusiastic as well. Staff was aloof and not any smiles. :(
The octopus app was good but our "server" could not explain how it was prepared. We waited for 15 min to place pizza order. and then waited another 30 min to receive order.
Pizza was undercooked, not browning on bottom and dense colorless crust.
COVID has made it very difficult for all of us, but I would say don't try to offer promised menu if you are not ready to deliver it. Too bad. Will NOT return.

I can’t say enough about our dinner out on their terrace with lights strung overhead. It was so lovely to eat there. The food was, as always, amazing. Have the burrata when you go. The service, again, as always, was perfect. And during Covid? You could not do better. Tables are more than 6 feet apart. Everyone was wearing masks if they were not seated. Really & truly well done - thank you!
