The food is amazing. It's not your mainstream Italian food. It's similar to foods you would get in Italy. The entrees were good but the appetizers totally steal the show.

Dining at Osteria Slowza is a painful all night event. Writing this and reflecting upon how much my party just sat there waiting, I realize we could have made it through the entire first part of "The Godfather". The highlights: over 45

I went to Mozza with 3 girlfriends last night. I've been here before and love the food. We enjoyed all our meals, but the service was ridiculously slow and it seemed like there were no adults in charge of making sure things hummed along.

Went to the special Friday/Saturday night family style dinner that they are offering. AMAZING! The food and people were great. I felt like I was in the chef's home kitchen. Definately worth the $$

Food does not get much better than this! And the atmosphere is fantastic too. When you eat here, your servers will make you feel like a star. They are attentive and experienced and know the menu inside out. The wine list is full of delicious choices. Best food in town!

My husband and I went to this restaurant for our most recent wedding anniversary. We spent about an hour at the bar drinking the most fantastic drinks and watching "the scene."
The food was unbelievable! Definitely order some of the cheese offerings. We had two amazing cheese appetizers. I would go back just for those cheese offerings. The pasta we ordered was cooked to perfection and had the most wonderful flavor combinations. Waiters walked around with bread the whole night in contrast to the usual bread basket. The salmon that we ordered for the entree was a little disappointing but the whole meal was so fantastic that as much as we wanted to we couldn't save room for dessert. Would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for a high end evening out!

Most of the mozzarella items had some form of meat or onions, which I don't love. I asked for them to put the buratta on a green salad, and they said they couldn't do that. So I ordered the caprese. Two little mozzarella spheres on top
