  • EaterOsteria Mozza continues to turn out some of the city’s best pastas, each done with a true-to-Italy bent. There’s the tortellini, pappardelle with rabbit ragu, and the tagliatelle with oxtail.

  • Ricky S.I tend not to like "pretty food" places but this place changed my mind. The experience starts the second you walk. Everything we had was great. The staff was great too. This is a must try.... So go!!

    55555 by Ricky S.


  • Bon Appetit MagazineIf “cold spaghetti” sounds like something reserved for a late-night fridge raid, prepare to have your mind changed: the chitarra freddi with squid ink, crab, sea urchin, and jalapeño is a must.

  • Scottie MilagroService was fantastic and the food was excellent. Grilled octopus was my favorite. The burrata sampler was also very good. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the raviolo.

  • LA WeeklyImagine a great sushi chef who has chosen to work with mozzarella instead of fish. Really, you have never tasted such cheese.

    55555 by LA Weekly


  • Men's Health MagIf you’re feeling pasta, there’s calf’s brain ravioli, but safer options exist, too, such as duck ragu over gnocchi. Round out your meal with a porcini-encrusted rib eye and call it a night.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag


  • Men's Health MagDon’t come here looking for family-style Italian. This is a different beast conceived by power trio Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Los Angeles’ queen of pastry, Nancy Silverton.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag


  • EaterA good place to hit during the weekday for an amaro and plate of burrata, the service is always going to be top notch. The pastas or main dishes are prepared to perfection. [Eater 38 Member]

  • MirellaAs Italians we can say the mozzarella was served too cold, so cold you couldn't tell the difference between a fiordilatte and a buffalo one. Too much butter on every dish and the bread was fried. Yuki

  • Derek F.One of LA's best Italians. Try Mozarrella sampler to start, a stuffed pasta for primi and outstanding beef tagliotti for segundi. If you only order a primi, beware that portions are small. Good wines.
