    Like price gouging? This is your restaurant. Point out the egregiousness of said price gouging for a bonus of managerial pomposity!

    You can't go wrong at Osteria Mozza. It's totally delicious–the pizza, pastas and entrees are all yummy. And there's a mozzarella bar that serves fresh cheese. The mint pesto dish is AMAZING. (friend)

    The dishes here are somewhat more polished than those at the adjacent pizzeria,. Sample fare: fresh ricotta and egg raviolo with browned butter, and beef brasato with horseradish gremolata. Read more

    The beef was just outstanding, crispy outside and perfectly medium rare inside. Awesome goat cheese ravioli. Really good service!

    Service 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.

    Amazing Italian food. The polenta and fried potatoes were amazing.

    Lamb is excellent, and the prosciutto with melon is on par with Madeo's prosciutto with burratta. Delish!

    Imagine a great sushi chef who has chosen to work with mozzarella instead of fish. Really, you have never tasted such cheese. Read more

    If 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. Read more

    Don’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. Read more

    A 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] Read more

    Awful service, they didn't have three dishes on Xmas Eve, even though they were on the tasting menu. We asked for non spice pasta and came unbearable. The waitress asked if we couldn't handle it.

    Nice enough, but I'd rather do the pizzeria. Enjoy.

    As 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

    Pricey but delectable, nonetheless!

    Don't miss the bufala mozzarella draped with spectacular anchovy with Meyer lemon and an herb salad. Nancy Silverton makes a great a caprese with bufala, cherry tomatoes and basil.
