What Insiders Are Saying
One of LA's finest Italian restaurants, Osteria Mozza in Hollywood is still very much at the top of its game.
Wonderful service and meal. A truly fantastic evening.
The food here is exceptional, we had an endive salad, the mozzarella tasting, the cacio e pepe, the duck and torta de la nona. All of which was delicious. Service was friendly without being overbearing. Perfection!
Everything was amazing. Took me right back to Italy
Food outstanding; ambiance much quieter/better than most other nice italian bar-restaurants
Our server really was knowledgeable but was stretched too thin the night we went so we waited for certain things longer than I would have preferred
the pasta and dessert were outstanding
Valet parking at $14, waiting in an alley, is less than ideal but the location doesn't really allow for a very convenient, safe alternative; would be nice if it was a little less expensive given that the prices inside are full-fare
overall, a great restaurant
The good people at Osteria Mozza excelled once again! It was my birthday and they arranged for a special personalized menu for the table. Service was at our elbow and with a smile. Top notch wines. Each dish brought a new wonderful taste surprise. A night to remember. Thanks!!
John our server was extremely friendly and smart. He knew about all of the wines to pair with the food and was always there when we needed him. The service all around was amazing and we had a 4 course meal (5 dishes) in under an hour but didn't feel rushed at all! A great experience for my boyfriend's birthday!
Excellent food and service. We were seated in a quiet saloon, although the main one seems to be noisy. I strongly recommend Osteria Mozza.
Nancy Silverton’s crowning achievement! A must visit.
We go to many restaurants around LA and this is one of our Faves!! The bread is Amazing, the food is beyond delicious. Yes, they do pack you in. A bit noisy depending on where you are sitting. But we have been coming here every year for our anniversary for the last 5 years. DON'T MISS THE OCTOPUS. I know - not your fave? My hubby doesn't like octopus but Loves it here. And the pasta dishes are all out of this world!
Food was great, drinks were great. The sweet potato dessert was a highlight
Everything at Mozza is done well. The drinks, the service and certainly the food. The mozzarella course, the ricotta cavatelli, the gnocchi, the caesar, the beef tagliata and espresso semifreddo were all perfectly executed. My only quibble was how much smoke there is on the smoked burrata. I'd skip that next time, but would be happy ordering any of the other dishes. The gnocchi was the stand out for me.
If you go, you'll know in advance that this is not going to be a cheap meal. I'm not afraid of spending on a nice meal from time to time, but I would be rushing back to eat here again much sooner if the prices were a touch lower.
Overall it was amazing, just a little disappointed that we got seated near the back room.
Osteria Mozza is a fabulous and delightful place. Outside, it’s Hollywood, inside, it’s a completely different world all it’s own, friendly, elegant, beautiful and comfortable. The food is wonderful, the service is expert, warm and unpretentious. It’s all a little bit pricey, but I’ve never enjoyed paying for something so much.
The waiter was fantastic and offered suggestions when we asked him about certain items. The food was great and the tastes where unique
One of the tastiest dinners I've ever eaten. Between the 2 of us, we had 1 mozzarella sampler dish, 2 pastas, the beef tagliatelle, 3 drinks and a dessert. Just shy of $200. Everything was wonderful.
Took my fiancé there for her birthday dinner. We had a great time. The food and service were great. Would definitely return and recommend.
If you’re ready to book a restaurant big on Snob appeal this is the place for you.
We had three of four arrive together and we were told (in an empty restaurant) that we could not be seated until the 4th person in our party arrived. When I made it clear that we wanted to be seated at our table immediately they relented and sat us and clearly they were upset.
Asking the waiter for his suggestions for appetizers he gave them and so we ordered. The 4th in our party arrived.
After waiting for the appetizers in what seemed like forever, I asked the waiter what happened to them, he told me that the kitchen would have to have our entire order before our appetizers would be delivered to the table. Ordering wine was another ordeal. The food was good. But nothing that is worth going back for. There are many 5 star restaurants that will give you equal food and a far better overall experience.
We ate at the pizzeria for lunch and loved it so much we came back to the Osteria for dinner!
Our favorite place to eat love they brought back the appetizer asparagus and burrata cheese so good!
Try mozzarella was none like I have ever tasted before!
Great place with delicious dishes
Amazing experience all around!
Birthday. I told the waitress it wA my daughters birthday. She didn’t offer anything special. They sat us in the back room. Not great atmosphere. The main room would been much better.
The food was amazing! It was very long in between courses.
Overall. Probably wouldn’t recommend. Too may better places in la with far better atmosphere
Say at table 62 on Friday night. Our server was missinnin action for most of the night. Had to flag down a manager as they walked by to get more drinks and another bottle of water. Underwhelming.
Great wine. Great service. Food wasnt as great as it use to be. It was good.
Very unique menu with dishes not found at every Italian restaurant in town. Good quality ingredients with supreme tasty results.
I write for a polish customers: było wspaniale. Pasta tasting jest kulinarną przygodą odkrywania nowych smaków. Warto zapłacić za te chwile degustacji, poczuć się jak we włoskim domu i wyjść najedzonym. Jadąc do LA chcieliśmy odwiedzić Osteria Mozza i nam się udało. Polecamy!
From the moment we walked in to the scrumptious rosemary olive cakes with rosemary brittle we had for dessert, we had excellent service with a smile and good energy. The burrata with leeks was delicious; leeks were tender with a unique flavor. The ricotta with egg in browned butter sage was amazing! The yellowtail was cooked perfectly, moist and tender. Seasoning was delicate and appropriate. Pasta was perfect. And, the bread before the meal, oh the bread! So good! All in all, once again, one of, if not the best, Italian restaurants in L.A.
Great bar, ambiance and wait staff. Our sommelier was fantastic.. we told him what our tastebuds love and he came up with a wonderful wine. Food always great.. One slip.. the clams with pancetta had a funny taste . Got a touch sick afterwards. But that said we will come again.. as per usual..
I love the mozzarella bar, both because of the cheese but also as a place to sit, especially when dining alone. I started with the Burrata and Peas which also had pea shoots and speck ham. So delicious! It was the best dish I had. I then had the Orecchiette with Sausage. The pasta was done perfectly but I was hoping for a bit more sausage (there were only a few tiny specks) and the promised chard was nonexistent or unidentifiable. It was a good plate of pasta but less than satisfying. All in all, though, it was a good, light dinner which is exactly what I was looking for that night.
I went there on a date after seeing a recent Silverton television segment about the restaurant. I must say that the food, atmosphere, and service were well beyond my expectations. We ordered the Mozzarella with artichoke, grilled octopus (must have) along with two pasta dishes (ricotta and egg ravioli, cavaletti with peas) and all were excellent. The salad was fresh and well dressed and the bread was to die for. Overall, the servers were attentive and our waiter was very helpful in helping us decide our selections. We even had a Pistachio semifreddo for dessert which was a nice cap to a great dining experience.
Excellent food and dining experience. Osteria Mozza is now our favorite restaurant!
The food was some of the best I’ve ever had. Delicious and great attentive wait staff.
Not one complaint
Fabulous dining experience. Food and service impeccable. Only objection is that the ventilation in main dining room wasn’t great and the room had the food smell. At first I was disappointed that we sat in a small room off the main, in the long run it was fine. Yet, it was a dinner that I will always remember
Mozza never fails to impress.
We were back again with friends for a special get together. The entire evening was exceptional from the service to the food. The octopus appetizer was melt in you mouth tender as was the duck entree and perfectly seaaoned and served hot. All in all, a wonderful evening that did not disappoint.
My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Osteria Mozza! The food was amazing. In LA from Cleveland Ohio and extremely happy we did not pass up the opportunity to experience Osteria Mozza.
The food is always fantastic. The bill won't be, but what are you going to do?
