Pizzeria Mozza is a great choice where you can get the trendy atmosphere AND great tasting food in one in LA! Very good pizza and hearty salads. If you're a fan of Mario Batalli or just pizza in general, you must try this. For The Office fans, I Mindy Kaling (who plays Kelly Kapoor) the last time I was here. Without a reservation, you should expect an hour wait on a typical evening. Try to get one because it's very uncomfortable standing around like sardines. I haven't been next door to Batalli's fancier restaurant, Osteria Mozza, but I hear it is incredibly good.Recommended for:Trendsters

Best pizza I have had? Probably not. Perhaps not even top 10 on my list.
That doesn't mean the pizza wasn't good. Just hear me out.
I first heard about Mozza from an article about SF vs LA vs NYC restaurants showdown. Mozza (both Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza) is listed on the very top on the must try list.
If you are a meat lover, their pizza won't disappoint. The meat toppings are spectacular. The fennel sausage and speck, in particular, were so sinfully flavorful. All three pizza I have tried, Funghi, Pizza alla benno and Meat Lover, were likable. I love almost everything they put there. Every bite was a treat.
Yet, I am still not completely satisfied.
While Mozza's pizza is brick oven baked, it is not truly any specific Italian style. The crust is too thick for Neapolitan but too thin for Lazio. I have a fairly strong preference for Italian thin crust and I found this weird breed a difficult to get used to. The rich oil on the pizza, while not overwhelming, has made the pizza a little less crisp. You have to eat them quick or they might get soggy.
If only the toppings were on a true Neapolitan pizza....
Perhaps that's just me.
Oh their bone mallow appetizer is a must try. The gelato and sorbet were hit and miss. Rum Rasin was good because the flavor was very strong. You can almost get drunk from the ice cream. Almost..but not quite. Espresso was velvety smooth. Olive oil tasted just like plain salted vanilla. Raspberry sorbet was average.
While service was adequate, I was not impressed. Wait staff could really be more friendly and enthusiastic.

Overhyped and/or overpriced? That's what I wanted to know when I made a reservation. Conclusion: It's pricey, but deserves all the accolades. The pizzeria half of Osteria Mozza restaurant has just a half-dozen tables inside a wine cellar-style room. The menu is refreshingly simple, but still creative: Italian wines by the glass, classic appetizers with a twist like bruschetta with butternut squash and spinach, and airy, thin-crust pies in a score of different topping combinations (e.g., speck with fresh buffala mozzarella). We dropped $100 on lunch for two (thank you, expense account!) but left satisfied. Super-professional service is quick, showing just the right amount of attentiveness.

This dimly-lit, romantic restaurant is just low key enough that you don't have to come with a famous entourage to enjoy some amazing pizza. For appetizers, the fried squash blossoms with ricotta are pretty popular and definitely worth a taste (though be warned, the starter portions are on the small side). I had the fennel sausage, panna, red onion and scallions pizza and it was honestly some of the best pizza I've ever had. The crust is thin and crispy, the sauce just sweet enough, and everything tastes perfectly fresh. Their wine collection is pretty extensive, and the back room displays rack after rack of both red and white. They also have a very knowledgeable sommelier, who will help you out if you can't decide on a bottle.

I love pizza, and aside from Chicago deep dish, this is my fav. Gotta hand it to Mario Batali...he knows pizza. Fresh ingredients and combos that you just can't go wrong with no matter which pizza you order. The fried mozzarella appetizer is also a must try. Blackboardeats also has some coupons sometimes, so you could get 30% off of a carry-out order.

One might think that pizza can't be gourmet but that probably means you haven't been to Mozza. Mario Batalli's casual outpost to Mozza, Pizzeria Mozza has some of the most savory pizzas I've ever had. There's one with an egg in the center that was quite memorable. I also enjoyed the one with fennel sausage. The most difficult part about coming here is having to choose just one pizza!Recommended for:Foodies

The bubbly crust, the exquisite toppings. I love pizza from Pizzeria Mozza. The fennel sausage and goat cheese pizza are the ones we usually order, and don't forget the butterscotch budino for dessert!

This place doesn't make the best pizza, especially considering the price, but the food is pretty good. The desserts are the best part of the menu. Try to go when they have their late night deal (I believe it's 10pm - close), when you can get a glass of wine, any pizza, and any dessert for $20--great deal!!
