    The ambiance and service makes me feel like I’m in a $$$ restaurant. The beef tartare was great but the pasta was dry and lacked depth of flavor.

    Confession: I had thought I'd made a reservation for Osteria Mozza and only realized my mistake as I was waiting for the valet to take my car. Eek! Fortunately, my friend and I noticed the error and headed off to Osteria Momma, which happened to be only a few miles away. Well, it turns out that our meal at Osteria Momma could not have been more delicious. The food was outstanding, as was the service. I had the pasta pesto, my friend had the Chicken Milenese, both were superb. We also had two desserts (one was an apple & pear pastry with gelato and the other was a light lemony custard tart, both were incredibly yummy. I enthusiastically recommend this restaurant. Neither of us are drinkers but we did notice they had an extensive drink menu and what looked like a large wine selection.

    We had dinner for LA Dine Week. Their offering was a very good value but the marinara sauce they used on the pasta was just ok. My friend ordered gnocchi which were very good. The Frittura Mista (fried mixed seafood) was also amazing and cooked perfectly. I was served corked red wine which they were kind enough to take off the bill. Service was good. Not sure if I'd return because it is a far drive for me. I only head to that part of town when the food is amazing.

    This has been our go-to Italian restaurant for many years. The food is consistently excellent with Ligurian authenticity. They are known for their fresh seafood, inventive menu, well-curated wines and house-made pasta and gnocchi that melts in your mouth. The owners have designed a menu that rewards the diner who appreciates quality and variety. Of special note are the pizza Mirko, which features a thin crust topped with fresh arugula and prosciutto and centered around an uncut globe of unctuous burrata and the board covered with varied aged cheeses and thin-sliced meats. There is a delicious mixed fry of calamari and shrimp and batons of zucchini and sweet peppers, served with two pitchers of a tomato-based and a creamy sauce. The specials are always of interest. We anticipate attentive, cordial service without it being intrusive. The covered back patio is quieter than the interior dining area (which has oversized black and white photos of family and of Mamma as a vibrant Italian teen) and is outfitted with heat lamps when needed. There is a charming walkway on the side with tables surrounded by planter boxes. I brought three first-time guests who were delighted and vowed to return soon with some of their lucky friends.

    Food was inconsistent, some were good, while the others were just ok. Could use more salt. The ravioli was fantastic! Great value for money. It took more than 30 minutes for the servers to come back to our table to take our orders and the food took another 30 minutes to be served. We were a party of 6 but the table was probably meant to just fit 4 people— barely any space left for food. We also had to ask for regular plates otherwise we would’ve been eating from appetizer plates the whole time. Clean bathrooms and accommodating staff.

    Food always fabulous. Service this night was poor. We had to search for our waiter several times and simple items that we asked for took a long time to be provided. This was an anomaly, usually service is quite good. Back patio is a very nice setting,

    It’s a small crowded place. The only odd thing was the wait person’s choice to address us as a binary couple. It was based on a weird assumption and off putting. Things were said like “would us like another glass of wine?” Weird.

    The service was great, the food was excellent, most of my little pet peeves never materialized. Except one, when the server was not there at the time the food was brought, all of the names are Italian and none of us were sure what we ordered. The server always has to be there when the food comes or it just gets very uncomfortable. Everything else, wonderful!

    I really enjoyed dinner here with friends. Delicious food, great wine and attentive staff. Gluten-free and veggie options as well, but not the greatest for vegans. We were seated in the tented area outside so it didn't feel noisy or crowded. One note, it isn't cheap, and I spent much more than I'd intended, but it was a great meal!
