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.
Start with the mozzarella bar. Try the Burrata with Bacon and Stracchino. Smoked perfection.
heaven on earth. The pizzas, the cheese, amazing!
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!
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.
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
Bring your dad to pay for the bill :) Grilled octopus was amazing.
Prepare for your Roman Feast! You’ll need to confess to the Pope himself after the sinful delights of this restaurant.

Burrata and Speck, Grilled Octopus
Try the octopus; I normally don't like octopus due to the texture, but theirs is so soft and lemony.
