Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich's Pizzeria Mozza has become such a force in LA's pizza culture that nearly every other pie in town is compared to it, even if the comparisons are never quite apt. After all, Pizzeria Mozza is in a class all to itself:  Silverton's pizzas are unabashedly doughy and chewy, full of airy, sometimes charred, bubbles and topped with ingredients that would not be out of place in the kitchen at Lucques: burrata and squash blossoms, fennel sausage or wonderfully toothy long-cooked broccolini with caciocavallo cheese. Beyond the pizza are other showstoppers: hefty meatballs made with no less than three rich meats (veal, pork, pancetta) and served in a passata di pomodoro sauce; and a creamy, buttery, rich butterscotch budino that, no matter how many times you have it, is bound to be one of the best desserts you'll have all year. Just like the pizza.

This is a delicious pizza spot! I recommend getting the corn (if available that season) and the Squash Blossoms, Tomato & Burrata pizza.

I went to the location in Newport Beach and was completely floored by how amazing this place was. Legit the best pizza I've ever had outside of Italy, and that says a lot give I'm from Chicago. We started with the squash blossom appetizer, perfectly fried squash blossoms with ricotta and amazingness - I would go back for 3 more of these appetizers just for myself. 3 Pizzas later, we could probably keep eating that perfectly made chewy golden crust, the fresh prosciutto, the aglio e olio, the egg and potato pizza, the nduja, I'm salivating now just dreaming about it. Definitely come here for the best pizza experience of your life. I promise.

I had heard a lot about this place, my friend had been encouraging me to book here for a while. So a much anticipated visit. The service was good, the environment simple but well presented. The selection of pizzas is short; I went for one of the organic options, they don't allow/encourage substitutions, which was a bit of a frustration. I didn't really want to substitute anything, just add... and with a pizza that ended up costing nearly $30 I think that is not too much to ask. 


Decent pizza but not worth the price.

Definitely amongst the most delicious pizza in the city. The menu features plenty of inventive and gourmet options. Depending on when you arrive, there can often be a wait and it's always a solid idea to make a reservation. If you come after 10 PM on certain nights (check before you go) they have an excellent deal at the bar where you can get a pizza, glass of wine, and dessert for only $30.


If you've never been to Pizzeria Mozza, GO TO PIZZERIA MOZZA. They have a delicious menu with tasty options other than their many pizza pies.  The tricolore salad--superb.

This is a fun “LA” place to try – there is a lot of hype around the restaurant and it's cool that they have their different restaurant offerings (pizzeria, osteria, etc). A great option while entertaining out-of-town guests. I’ve noticed sometimes they burn their crust (which is usually chewy but can become crispy when burnt) but overall a decent experience for the family.

I thought that maybe it was for the mid-20’s to 30’s crowd but no, I’ve definitely seen kid birthday parties being thrown there.

This is a staple in LA! I have been numerous times and am never let down by the food and the service. The pizza is very authentic and they have a great selection of wine options you can pick from. One thing to note is to be sure to make a reservation in advance it tends to book up quickly!
