Always good, they have something for everyone. Had the fennel sausage pizza along with the chop salad and pasta. All was delicious. The wine recommendations were spot on and the desert was crazy good. Will be back again and again.

The food was superb, as always. We enjoyed radicchio salad with anchovy vinagrette, cauliflower fritti, meatballs, pizza margarita and butterscotch budino for dessert. The service was quick, efficient and we felt very safe. The outdoor area is beautiful and very comfortable.

Fun place, great food, very good service (excellent on our most recent visit), and it's a lively place. The ambiance in the parking lot is nil, so we were grateful to get moved inside. Had to wait despite our reservation, and there was really no place to stand, plus chilly outside. Hard to get a reservation, so book early!

One recommendation is that the owners consider redecorating the place. With fewer tables and slightly brighter lights inside, you can really see how plain and outdated it is. chairs and flatware are basically midwest cafeteria quality. Nothing special or interesting from a decor perspective at all, and so much could be done (we all discussed it over dinner). Spend a few $$ and bring up the quality of the ambiance (outside too!) to meet the level of the food.

We arrived 30 minutes early to avoid traffic and the Host would not seat us until 6:45pm. There were 4 available tables that we could have sat.

Perfection with every bite. We almost passed on the pain blanca because we were ordering pizza. The toasted bread drizzled with olive oil, caprese salad, and Sangiovese red wine were the best bites of our trip!!!!

Chopped salad, fried cauliflower, pizza and Prosecco. Delizioso. Wonderful al fresco ambiance, and excellent service. Kudos, also to the valets, who delivered both cars simultaneously, so we could depart together for more evening fun. 😉

Enjoyed the food, Although I thought the pizza was a bit soggy in the middle and hard/ burnt on the crust. The price point was rather high but the service was great and the drinks were also very good.

We enjoyed the bread, olives and Fried Cauliflower for appetizers. The Blanco pizza was very good, but needed some extra seasoning...so I added red pepper flakes. We enjoyed. The BBQ ribs and Margherira pizza, as well. We would enjoy a few Napa wine selections on your wines by the glass. We will return.

The servers did a great job trying to make our dinner enjoyable, however the environment was extremely challenging for them to do so. A birthday party for a child was taking place with numerous kids screaming and running around our and other quests' tables. We of course blame the parents and not the restaurant, however we still had a compromised experience because of it. More than a few times we, and other guests, had to tell the kids to not run around or yell by our tables and we certainly made our frustration known to the parents - who obviously did not care. Tough position for you but it would have been appreciated if management came out to tell the parents the kids needed to remain seated in their chairs, for not only the enjoyment of other patrons, but for their own kids' safety as well (especially since they broke glass and continued to play around it).

They were short staffed and our waiter did a great job, but he was the bartender, the server and he cleared...so there was some waiting. The food was great, and we love the place, but they didn’t have quite enough staff there last night!

Service was great. Well spaced- weren’t felt like we were rushed out of the place, servers always smiling, safety protocols followed. Pasta were excellent although small portions. Pizza - great. Crust but so few toppivgs.(except the fennel sausage). Dessert - the Buddino is one of the best desserts of 2021.

I have been to Mozza many times and always given a 5 star review. This time I can’t.
- The pizza was good but a little too stiff.
- Ordered the spaghetti calcio e Pepe , way too salty.

There was a very loud guy sitting close to us , this is not the restaurant’s fault , just annoying. Maybe separating the tables a little more would help.
