Date night with the wife. Food was Amazing and the staff was very helpful except for the bread guy who just watched us. You’d think he would have offered more bread, but he just stood there. Our waiter was on top of it and the sommelier was courteous since we decided on a cocktail. Not a cheap date, but as stated earlier, the food here was amazing.

I was expecting a lot more from this place. The entire experience was terrible. Too pricy for what you get. Not a lot of options for vegetarians. Small (I mean very small) portions. We basically ended up paying $150 for a kale salad and two pieces of mozzarella, oh yea and a $35 glass of wine that was of course chosen by our waitress. It’s over rated and was honestly very disappointed. Last note: WTF is the $14 valet for? Really??? Do you fill up my tank with that???? So mad!

Everything was top quality. Burrata Pugliese was smooth, rich and flavorful. Orrechiette with Sausage was tasting with a hint of hotness. Branzino was fresh and large enough to share between two people...fried rather than the traditional grill was an interesting take. We skipped dessert because portions were generous. Wine list emphasizes Italian blends with a few champagnes for good measure. Very impressive and delicious experience.

This very appealing physically restaurant no longer has the food to match. Actually, apart from their famous pizzas next door, they never really did. Their known name owner, Nancy Silverton, got her name in lights when she had a bread bakery, but we were never able to figure out why. She linked up with some big names and for the first couple of years we were caught up in the smoke and mirrors along with so many others who should have known better. Every time, we left saying that it must be that we just didn't know how to order there. We have a long list of the dishes we have tried and rejected (like their oxtail concoction which made us gag at the taste and grab our water glasses) very mundane pastas, and a tiny list of first courses that we would order again. Even there, there were warning signs, like a $20 or so burrata with the texture of cottage cheese. The single talent they have their is a pastry chef so go there for a cappuccino - they've got to be able to make that right - and a dessert.

You may wish to go here with the tourists for the environment, but go to Hippo or so many others for the huge food talent, like Milo and Olive for super food at about one third the price in a hip but not showy ambience. Also, no one is charging $30 per glass for wine any more except here, high end hotels, and one or two other tourist attractions like Spago - which, however, still has talent in the kitchen. Spago is expensive but is not a money machine like Osteria Mozza. If you can't resist having the experience of going here, you at least will have a good laugh comparing their prices with the better restaurants in L.A. However, if you actually order one of their so special dishes, you won't be laughing any more.

Food and service excellent. Appetizers good. Amazing Italian wine list. The sommelier selected the most perfect wine according to our preferences. Amazing wine. My fish was good but it’s hot on a cold surface with hummus. It makes the fish cold.

We were highly recommended here as San Francisco transplants to dine for a big birthday occasion/first la spot to eat. Unfortunately we were not very pleased with the service or food. We were hoping for more guidance when it came to pairing our food.
It wasn’t a bad experience...just not what we were hoping for. I had a bug in my salad...understandable, given it is organic. Just not the best way to start off a coursed meal.

We had a nice time and found positives throughout but unfortunately won’t be returning. All my best!

Lovely but certainly overpriced...what would have improved the dining experience would have been having our waiter (pleasant, but not as charming as one would hope) be our "food guide" from beginning
to end...

There was a flurry of servers and it would have been more enjoyable had our waiter be our server as
well.

Osteria Mozza was great! The food and service were impeccable. My only complaint (and it was very minor indeed) is that when my date and I arrived to a nearly empty restaurant (they had just opened for dinner service) we were sat directly next to a party of 4 when there were plenty of other tables that would have offered a slightly more intimate date night experience. Otherwise, everything was on point!

Been to the Pizzeria a couple of times and this was my first time trying Osteria and what an experience it was! The food was at another level and there's a reason why it's still tough to get a reservation at this place after all of these years. The atmosphere was great and the food was out of this world. You MUST try the Nancy's deconstructed Caesar salad, you simply will not believe how they can get so much flavor out of such a simple dish. Everything else we had tasted great too, from the Spaghetti Calabrese , to the asparagus, the different kinds of bread and of course the dessert! They had great Negroni's and naturally a great wine selection as well. This place is an absolute must and the price is on the reasonable side compared to other "high end restaurants" and definitely worth the price of admission!

Dinner wasnt impressive at all. Brussel sprout salad was far too salty, mozzarella trio sampler lacked in flavor,my boyfriends pasta was just ok and sadly I didnt care for the octopus at all. Our second round of drinks took forever to recieve and his sazerack had far too much bitters.

Overall, I was disappointed. Will continue to frequent Terroni DTLA which has far better cuisine and service at a reasonable prices.

Great food, even better experience. The sommelier, Dustin, guided me through their (huge) collection of Barolos, wisely suggesting a 2006 Vietti for early drinking, which we slowly savored sip-by-sip over the course of the dinner. Cannot recommend enough.

From the outstanding service to the delicious food, Osteria Mozza is a place we will return to for birthday and anniversary celebrations. Amazing shaved Brussel sprouts. Scrumptious goat cheese ravioli, incomparable chocolate coconut gelato and huckleberry bombalinos with unbelievably creamy lemon ice cream. Our best meal there ever.

We were a bit underwhelmed on this visit to Mozza The mozzarella tasting platter with spreads was not very appealing with very hard toasted bread. the rib eye was served in a broth We’ve had a great meal the last time we visited but this time we were disappointed. A very expensive meal that wasn’t worthy of the bill.

We had a great evening at Osteria Mozza! The staff was excellent and the bread was delicious. The orecchiette with sausage and chard was a little too salty for me, but the texture was perfect. The duck ragu had just the right amount of acidity, and the pi day pie was the best I’ve had in a while.
