Fodor's Expert Review Osteria Mozza

$$$ Hollywood Italian Fodor's Choice
How close do you think you can get to divinity? At chef Nancy Silverton’s passion project–slash–culinary masterpiece, you’ll come pretty damn close after sampling a few of its celestial dishes. It’s hard to find fault in Osteria Mozza's posh plates when they’re made with such true dedication to the culinary craft that the team will find impossible ways to ship an important ingredient from across the Atlantic even if a decent alternative is on hand. The best part—you know, besides the blissful mozzarella bar, the restaurant's commitment to sustainability, and its support of California growers—is that while everything about it looks incredibly upscale and expensive, the restaurant doesn’t turn its nose up at the masses. You can easily find your happy spot here thanks to the relaxed dress code, warm and attentive servers, and three-course Sunday tasting menu that’s easy on the pocket.
