Fodor's Review

This casual venue gives newfound eminence to the humble "pizza joint." With traditional Mediterranean items like white anchovies, squash blossoms, and Gorgonzola, Mozza's pies—thin-crusted delights with golden, blistered edges—are much more Campania than California, and virtually every one is a winner. Antipasti include simple salads, roasted bone marrow, and platters of salumi. All sing with vibrant flavors thanks to superb market-fresh ingredients, and daily

specials may include favorites like lasagna. Like the menu, the Italian-only wine list is both interesting and affordable. Walk-ins are welcome at the bar.

Pizzeria Mozza Review

I'm not sure why Fodors claims this restaurant is in Century City, because it is miles from there (at the edge of Hancock park, mid-city). Reservations truly are essential unless you want to try to get a little place at the bar. Even if you go early (6 p.m.), the place is packed. We went here last December for a friend's birthday, and were lucky enough to get in because someone had just canceled a reservation. We were placed between a television

star and a movie star (not that I noticed) having dinner with their respective families. The Pizzeria is next to the Osteria (which, in Italy, usually means cheap; here, the Osteria was more expensive than the Pizzeria). This is one of those places where you really do want to make reservations a month in advance to eat one of their pizzas -- words cannot describe how truly imaginative and tasty the pizzas are here! Incredible crust. Not cheap, but worth every bite. Very casual, very loud, but a really happy place to be!
