“If you adore restaurants,if you’re addicted to the sounds,the energy and the spectacle of dining out,there’s hardly any place in L.A. that’s more of a thrill than Osteria Mozza.”
“Osteria Mozza is a casual restaurant where people dress to impress…” Presided over by always-dressed-to-impress Nancy Silverton, Osteria Mozza goes from strength to strength. From exquisite handmade pastas to grilled beef tagliata to Pastry Chef Dahlia Narvaez’s rosemary olive oil cakes. Osteria Mozza’s is a menu Angelenos can recite by heart: the greatest hits.
The centerpiece of Osteria Mozza is a white Carrara marble Mozzarella Bar where Nancy composes a long list of small dishes featuring fresh imported mozzarella as well as ricotta and cream-filled burrata.
Osteria Mozza is the brainchild of Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Nancy Silverton. In an origin story that has become restaurant lore, Mario asked Nancy to lead the pastry and bread department at the nascent Del Posto in New York. Nancy declined. Two years later, the two set out to collaborate on a Los Angeles project and Pizzeria Mozza was born. After a series of delays, Osteria Mozza followed. And the rest is history.
