Mozza - Lunch?
I would love to try Mozza very soon, but I work in Hollywood and then I face a long commute, so staying in town for dinner happens infrequently for me. I also would like to be spontaneous and not wait for a reservation. I thought that trying lunch at Mozza would be the ticket for me. Has anyone here been there for lunch? Reservations aren't necessary then, are they? Is the menu different for lunch? I am fairly sure that at least the pizzas would be the same, no?
Everything is the same. Reservations are necessary at all times, including at 4 in the afternoon, unless you want to take a chance at getting a seat at the counter. If you want to do that I would recommend arriving just before 12 when they open.
last week i walked in @ 5 to find both a completely patron free bar and counter w/only 2 people sitting there.
guess it's hit or miss on the times.
Go for it. The counter/pizza bar at lunch is great for the solo or duo diner(s). We dropped in on a Friday (mid-afternoon) with no reservation, and in less than 2 minutes, the very gracious hostess was able to get an accomodating diner to scoot over and accomodate our needs. I'm sure there are waits for the counter, but don't let that keep you away. The vibe is friendly and eager to please...
We (2) waited around an hour (...from 1:45, seated at ~2:45) on the Friday prior to Christmas. Next time I think I'll try around 3:30.
And yes, it was worth the wait.
I've dropped in a few times for lunch on the weekends (usually between 12-12:30) and never had a wait for the counter. I don't know how it is during the week.
