Nancy Silverton, whose La Brea Bakery changed the game for artisanal bread in America, teams up here with New York-based Italian-food moguls Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich in this lively urban restaurant, complete with a mozzarella bar, unusual pasta (calf’s brain ravioli, spaghetti with marinated white anchovies), and main dishes ranging from grilled quail wrapped in pancetta to duck al mattone.  

Foursquare Tips

  • Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich meld their prodigious talents to bring Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza to the heart of Los Angeles.
  • 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!
  • walk in and sit at the counter
  • "Have your mozzarella seasoned with caramelized shallots, basil, caperberry relish or mint pesto and accompanied by a variety of ingredients such as braised artichokes." -Gayot on TripExpert
  • Expensive. Cute bar. Good food. Great atmosphere.
  • Easily my favorite restaurant in LA
  • Burrata and Speck, Grilled Octopus
  • 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 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.
  • It's all about the artichoke buricotta
  • real food
  • 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 jalapeo is a must.
  • EVERYTHING.
  • Amazing. Can't say that enough
  • Two words: Mozzarella Bar
  • 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!
  • Best dishes: bucatini, octopus, tagliatelle, smoked bufala mozzarella and the ribollita
  • Be bold and try the best fried pigs trotter in town !
