5 Hollywood Italian Restaurants to Write Home About

Get your strechy pants ready because once you’ve experienced the goodness below you will gain weight. Don’t worry, it will be well worth it 🙂

Pizzeria Mozza

Shoutout to the super talented Frances Michelle

Address: 641 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Phone: (323) 297-0101
Yelp link: (4 stars with 3400+ reviews)

  • Pizzeria Mozza pizza is really good because of its simplicity. It’s for those with a sophisticated palette. They aren’t bombarding you with tons of cheese or ingredients – just a few ingredients so you can taste each one. It’s masterful.

Osteria Mozza

Address: 6602 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038
Phone: (323) 297-0100
Yelp link: (4 stars with 2100+ reviews)
Website

  • An LA institution, 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.

Osteria La Buca

Cheers to the super cool Samantha Dockser

Address: 5210 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038

  • LA just has so many amazing Italian places and Buca is no different.  Handmade pastas, house ricotta, exquisite sauces – we could go on and on.  Buca does Italian right – we’re big fans.

Osteria Mamma

Address: 5732 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038
Phone: (323) 284-7060
Yelp link: (4 stars with 1000+ reviews)
Website

  • At this point you might be a little tired of the whole Osteria / Mozza bit, but trust us, Osteria Mamma isn’t just a gimmicky name, it’s a quality spot.
  • Mamma Loredana believes you should never underestimate the power of a home cooked Italian meal. After many years of hard work from her kitchen in Italy, Mamma Loredana decided to share her original recipes with the southern California area. In March of 2010, Mamma Loredana, with the help of her family, opened a true and traditional Italian Osteria, Osteria Mamma.​ You can expect the true taste of the Veneto region in all of their dishes.

Fabiolus Cucina

Address: 6270 W Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028
Phone: (323) 467-2882
Yelp link: (4 stars with 600+ reviews)
Website

  • Fabulous Pizza and Lasagna
  • Jokes aside, Fabiolus is a fair name because the food and overall experience is good
