Pizzeria Mozza - amazing lunch

I had my first lunch at Mozza Pizzeria today and was very impressed. My party of four ordered three appetizers, all of which were fabulous. We had the beets with horseradish (I normally hate beets, but these were sweet, perfectly cooked, and interesting in their heat), the fried potatoes with herbs (I could have eaten a bucket full), and a lentil and fried goat cheese dish that was perfectly seasoned. We had a nice bottle of white wine for around $30. We then each ordered a different pizza and shared pieces - all were amazing, though mine (salame, mozzarella, tomato and fresno chiles) was to die for. Another bottle of wine washed it down but we wanted more. My friend said it best - "I could eat three more pizzas." Instead we had desert, a meyer lemon gelato pie or something and the signature butterscotch pudding. More delicious food. What really surprised me was the bill. Considering that we had appetizers, individual pizzas, dessert, and two bottles of wine, I was a bit nervous - but it came to just $100 per couple. Don't get me wrong, I don't spend that much on lunch on a normal day, but it seemed reasonable considering the big names attached to this place and the incredibly high quality of the food and service. Long lines were intimidating, but we had made reservations a week before.
