MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A mega hit since opening over a decade ago, this Hollywood darling—sitting on a prominent corner of Melrose Avenue—continues to please with creative cocktails and delicious Italian cuisine. Its entrance is clearly marked outside the massive one-story building, though it is also home to Pizzeria Mozza, as well as a to-go option. The décor veers from typical osteria-style, thanks to handsome dark-wood paneling and a beautiful white marble counter. The front room is lively with music, while the back is quieter. A seat at the Mozza bar lets guests have a prime view of the antipasti being prepared.

Chef Nancy Silverton's team strives to show you around the corners of Italian cooking, so dive right in to the calf’s brain ravioli with burro e limone. Bread is something of an obsession here—don’t be shocked to see hungry diners tucking a slice of multigrain or two into their purses.The crispy chicken leg is pure and simple comfort food; and pastas are unsurprisingly phenomenal—try the orecchiette with sausage and Swiss chard. Other highpoints include the mozzarella menu, which should be explored with gusto, as should the very smart wine list.

Waits—for tables and again between courses—are to be expected.
