    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

    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.

    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

    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!!

    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

    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 dining room is dark woods, rich leathers and ornate detailing. The Mozzarella Bar buzzes with a younger foodie crowd who is happy to skip the sceney dining room for stool-top access to divine eats 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Was so disappointed. Tripe appetizer was overpowered by the tomato sauce. Burrata w/guancale wasn't fresh. Pasta course was WAY too salty. Octopus appetizer was good though. Bummer.

    You'll feel really weird coming here with your parents after a Dodger game. Was not expecting to dress up in this part of the city but Dodger jerseys are a nono. Get formal.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    Got story on parking fee. Cranky neighbors and they have to rent 3 lots to have no cars on St. Hence the huge expense.

    Try the octopus; I normally don't like octopus due to the texture, but theirs is so soft and lemony. Read more

    The Three Cheese Tasting Menu was the most memorable, especially the burrata.
