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.
We celebrated a major birthday and everyone enjoyed the experience in its entirety!
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.
Great food outdoor dining as good as it gets for a pandemic
Great food, service and ambiance! Will definitely be back.
Amazing! thank u mozza
Great service. Some entrees were good others not so.
Lasagna was very heavy...little meat sauce with fatty taste. Heater barely working.
Food was very good but the noisy outdoor/parking lot atmosphere left a lot to be desired.
Excellent service, the staff really took care of us. Food delicious as always!
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!
Pizzeria Mozza has definitely figured out how to still make the dining experience nice during COVID restrictions. 10/10!
Pretty nice outdoor space... just reopened :)
Took a long time to have servers attend to us
As always amazing dinner and lovely service!
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.
Love Mozza! Lower rating on ambiance is strictly related to outdoor dining in parking lot.
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.
Excellent pizza. Staff is great just a little slow but great overall experience. Would recommend and will be visiting again
Great service. I usually go to the Mozza in Los Angeles and compared to the food over there, it’s not as great.
Always a nice experience and they take precautions with distancing, etc
Dinner was amazing as always!! A wonderful way to celebrate my birthday!!!
We enjoyed the pizza and our dessert
We brought our kids along and enjoyed every single bite. The pizza and salad were outstanding and our kids loved the meatballs.
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.
Killer food and an overall great experience. They are doing great things despite the pandemic.
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 loved it! Fantastic set up outside and will definitely be back as soon as possible!
Wonderful dining experience! Courtesy, delectables, and safety!
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.
Fun night for Nancy Silverton’s new cookbook, Chi Spacca. Great food and service
Food is amazing as always. Just wish they had the black truffle pizza again. That was my favorite pizza
Great as usual. There are a few indoor tables now
We dined outdoors. It was fairly quiet out. The evening was the perfect temperature. We had a very nice time. Service was great and the food was so delicious! We will definitely be back.
I love the pizzas the crust is to die for light and so so crisp
Great service and food!
Exceptional food and service
Just one problem - main course was served minutes after starters- other than that it was perfect
Loved it! Great food!
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!
