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.

  • Bring your dad to pay for the bill :) Grilled octopus was amazing.
  • 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.
  • Mozza is like dining in the wine cavern of an old Italian villa. The food and the staff are on par with any highly rated Zagat resto. Their Italian wine list is superb - order a bottle.
  • 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.
