Pizzeria Mozza Ratings and Reviews

I LOVE Mozza. This time I had the Speck, Mozzarella di Bufala, Olive Tapenade & Oregano Pizza which was delicious. Note that it's a cold pizza - no melted cheese. The Speck, Mozzarella and Olive Tapenade decorate the pizza like dainty flowers.
The meatballs are a must.
We also got the Mozza cookbook which you can buy at there.

The pizza was very tasty. I wish I could go there often for the food, however parking is an issue, there's not much street parking so you're forced to use their valet parking. Their valet parking is $12, and after you paid $12, if you don't pay any extra tips to the guy who drove your car to you, you'd get a bonus of a dirty look. That's not what I want to be part of the dining experience. Also I'm spoiled by LA's free refill on iced tea and lemonade, but this place doesn't do that.

Really nice atmosphere.
The food lacked depth and flavor. I assume it got a Michelin star because of the name of the chefs over the actually quality of the food. I had been looking forward to eating here.
I usually try to be understanding, but the food was a miss for me. I'm sure there are other things on the menu that were better. I wish I could say I'd give it a second chance, but I'd rather spend my money on our local pizza shop downtown, Papi's. Half the price and ten times the taste.
The wine our waiter chose for us was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive for the first 15 minutes we were there, but then disappeared for the remainder of our meal (Approximately 30-35 minutes). We had to flag down another waiter to ask for our check. Normally I would expect a waiter to check in to see how our food was, whether we needed anything, etc... None of that happened.
All in all, I'd recommend skipping this place.

Don't believe the hype. The space is crowded and loud, with music blasting on top of the crowd noise, and our waitress was distracted and inattentive of even the most basic things, like water and answering questions about the menu. After taking our initial order, we never saw her again. The food was mediocre. Bland lasagne that tasted like chopped meat, salad that was overdone with rice vinegar and salt, and pizza that was strangely covered in shaved scallions. Borderline gross. The only item we enjoyed was the carmelized fennel and onion pizza.

We have loved driving across town to Pizzeria Mozza over the years but it seems to have gotten louder and louder over time. The last visit was impossibly loud, with crowd noise and music both. We left without dessert, which we enjoyed somewhere less deafening. I don't think we'll be back unless we hear that they have done something about the noise.

restaurant is somewhat trendy but still has a European feel. The noise level for us was too high. The music was very loud and somewhat strange selections Still not sure what we were hearing We couldn't converse without shouting at each other. Tables are very close together so that you almost bump elbows with the next table occupant. The pizza was good with fresh ingredients used and a light crust. Wait staff was great and overall service very good and professional.
We had to travel across town to get to the restaurant and I wouldn't go back as it did not stand out as a go to place for us.

Pizzeria Mozza is the best pizza in Los Angeles.....most days. Last Labor Day the cheese was skimpy, as was the sauce, and even the vaunted crust seemed off. Maybe that's a lesson, don't go out when the A-team is on holiday.
Also, the service was lacking. Our server seemed uninterested, and then she handed us off without a word to a friendlier waiter.
Overall, if this was my first time at Mozza, I would not have understood the hype.

Delicious pizza! The butterscotch budino dessert might be the best dessert I have ever eaten. The salty sweetness, combined with the creamy texture - unbelievable. They also make their own little cookies with Maldon sea salt and rosemary... We will be back!!

I had very high expectations coming in after reading reviews on Zagat, Yelp and etc.. I wouldn't call it the best pizza in the country, but it is made of a very good dough and is good, no doubt. My companion's pizza had a bit weird ingredients and taste (that's subjective, of course), we asked for a different one, which they made very quickly and did not charge us for the first one.
The service was good, but it took a bit over an hour before they brought the main course (they were busy that night, but still longer than anticipated even with us spending 10 minutes choosing what to order).
The choice of beer was a bit too exotic for my liking, but, hey, its fine not to have Corona or Bud at every place, right? I wouldn't hold it against them.
Having a valet is a great idea and makes parking very convenient, but $12 is a bit too much for the location and type of a restaurant.
What aggravated the evening for me is the noise level. Its not night club noisy, but definitely much more than i'd want during a Sunday night dinner. Can't comment much on the ambience because of the noise level.
I won't go back, but would consider a take-out.

My friend and I were out from Colorado visiting my daughter. She had never been, and my daughter loves Mozza. We had to wait 20 minutes for our reserved table, which is fine, and we received a complementary appetizer wish was a lovely gesture, but it took an hour to get our food after ordering. Our pizzas arrived lukewarm and undercooked with very little goat cheese on the bacon/leek pizza. My daughter, having been to Mozza before, knew this was not the norm. At the price we paid the food was a huge disappointment!

Pizza was of this world , appetizers not so good Had the stuffed blossom they were overly fried extremely greasy, stuffing was flavorless and at 14.00 it should be great not just ok . Same for chopped salad far to many dried spices and less product hardly any vegetables dried spices got stuck in between teeth, over dressed with the vignette not up to par for 18.00 it's just lettuce for gods sake . For the 85.00 not including tip ,I spent on two appetizer one pizza, one desert and two coffee I could of done better elsewhere . But gave it a try with a hold in my pocket .

Waitress seemed tired, bored. We never saw her again except at the end. Pizza with sausage had way too many onions. Meatballs were great. Hosts were rude, too. Staff seems tired and bored. My first few visits were way better!

The food was delicious. Some of the best pizza I've had in a while. However, it was a very small pizza considering how expensive it was (over $20 for a personal size pizza). The restaurant is casual and trendy, but very loud. We were squeezed in between two other parties of people. The server was adequate, but pushy. He recoiled when we asked if we could put in a to-go order...strange. They also cleared the table immediately after we had finished and gave us the impression that we were being rushed out the door, even thought the restaurant was still quite full of people.
Overall, it was a fun experience and the pizza was tasty enough to negate the poor service and bustling atmosphere.

Excellent! Wow--this was the best pizza crust we've had. We tried 2 pies and both were excellent (margherita and the one with leeks). The white bean bruschetta was also excellent. Nice choices for beer and wine. Tables are a bit close and it can be loud.
The initial experience was uncomfortable ...
The initial experience was uncomfortable and annoying. 5 out of 6 of us were there with the last stuck in traffic. The host, Lance, refused to seat us and kept reiterating the rule despite our assuring him she was coming and we would order and the table size would be the same, etc. We were eventually seated by the manager who was polite and reasonable and the night took off from there! The food was fantastic- really all it's expected to be and no disappointments. We had lots of tony appetizers, terrific wine and outstanding pizzas. Do not miss the desserts and most notably the butterscotch budino- really the stuff dreams are made of!

Felt like a sardine we were so close to the next table. And it caused the service to break down because they had too much to do and were constrained by the space they could do it. Just crazy. That said, the pizza was wonderful as always. I applaud the chef for taking the risk on the shrimp and melon dish even if it didn't work because the components fought each other (okay, it was wonderful with the wine).

The desserts were definitely the best part of the meal - they were delicious. The pizza was average and you could certainly find better pizza for a more reasonable price. The restaurant is loud so hard to have a conversation.

One of the two pizzas we ordered was equivalent to a dry cracker, almost inedible. The other pizza was ok, but there are many better places ro eat an overprized small pizza. Ambiance is ok, but more like a diner than a restaurant. Be ready to pay $12 for valet parking and beware of the waiters that insist that you order a salad or an appetizer because the pizza would take at least 25 minutes until it is ready.

Def were forgotten several times. So not the best service there. Food portions are small and not fantastic. Not bad just not spectacular either. We had to wait about 20 mins past our reservation to be seated. So overall won't go again. Might be better on an off peak night.
