What Olive Oil is used at Pizzeria Mozza?

I was there at the lunch opening sitting at the pizza bar and the pizza makers were filling up their jars with olive oil. I couldn't make out the name on the can of olive oil.

Does anyone know what olive oil they use on their pizzas?

      I had just sat down and I felt it would be a little invasive.

    2. i believe it's nancy silverton's own - it's made in umbria

        yeah Mozza was featured on an episode of After Hours and that's what she said.

      2. when I first went to the osteria (shortly after it opened) we had a ricotta special from the bar, and the olive oil they used tasted extremely young-- like an olio nuovo-- definitely not the same oil they use now. I haven't been able to track down exactly what it was, but it was delicious.
