    If “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. 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

    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.

    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!!

    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)

    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 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.

    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

    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

    Obviously their food is unique and exquisite, but try one of their desserts - GEEBUS! Never had anything like their Olive Oil Gelato w/Rosemary Brittle, and never will again. Book a month in advance.

    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.

    Free glass of Prosecco with dinner is a nice touch. The Orecchietti w/sausage and swiss chard is absolutely fantastic. For the main course, try the "Brasato al Barolo" braised beef short rib.

    Kathy Griffin says the "panini" is very good, Although I have yet to see a single panini on the menu, the food that they actually DO offer is among the most extraordinary in LA. Bliss...

    Osteria Mozza, a sleek, bustling restaurant in the same building as Pizzeria Mozza, is pretty extraordinary now, but what is even more exciting is the restaurant it will evolve into in several years!

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

    Mozza is like dining in the wine cavern of an old Italian villa. The food and the staff are on par with any highly rated Zagat resto. Their Italian wine list is superb - order a bottle.

    Happiest place on earth. Everything is worth trying and lovely, don't miss out on the calf's brain ravioli with sage and lemon and the porcini rubbed rib eye.

    Pizza's nice, and all, but frankly it's the cheese-centric appetizers -- the burratas, buffalas, etc. --- that are downright amazing. Don't miss out.

    If you're lactose intolerant, fuhgeddaboutit! Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali's high-end eatery serves over 15 kinds of mozzarella. Want casual? Check out the pizzeria next door, open 'til midnight.

    Many people don't even know that a private room exists off the restaurant's pizzeria doorway. It shares a wall with the main restaurant's dining room. Ask do a complete tasting of mozzarella dishes.

    Despite more refined food than its pizzeria sister-restaurant, this venue is more boisterous -loud guests & louder music- classic Mario Batali. Try the mozzarella tasting plate at the mozzarella bar!

    Such an amazing restaurant- do not leave without trying the burrata- it was amazing. The qual was also delicious.

    The whole menu is great but try the squash blossom pizza at mozza pizza and sit at the mozzarella bar at Osteria.

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

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

    Batali's burratas to die for, the pastas unbelievable and the italian list wine one of the best we have seen!

    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

    Apparently, they aren't very flexible w seating. It's my bday dinner and 1 of the 5 ppl is parking and they'd rather keep us standing then seat us at the table that should already be available.
