Pizzeria Mozza Review

My 51 first birthday celebration review 2-28-2009

Bone Marrow al forno 8 / 10
Bread was perfectly toasted , bones were straight out of the over very hot marrow perfect

Insalata mista 5 / 10
Nothing special (per my wife)

Speck 0/10
The speck never showed up at the table but was on the bill

Prosciutto di Parma, rucola, tomato & mozzarella pizza 9 / 10
Wife loved her pizza loved the crust

Clam Pizza 7 / 10
The taste of the pizza was very good I liked the crunch of the crust but needed more clams

Butterscotch budino 9 / 10
Wife loved the budino

Service 3 /10
When we arrived we were asked if we wanter tap or bottled water we oped for the tap water when the bill arrived they charged $6.00 each !!!!!! $12.00 for tap water thats BULL $HIT.
When I worked at a water district in the 80's water was $1.07 per unit. One unit was 1000 cubic feet of water or 7,480 gallons get the picture.
The couple that sat next to us knew someone in the restaurant they had 2 waiters, two bus boys and the hostess helping them the rest of the evening

  1. The charge for tap water had to be a mistake! I wasn't charged for tap water on my last visit about three weeks ago.

      The charge for tap water is a new thing in restaurants. Instead of buying spring water they have a machine called "Natura". It filters and bottles tap water. It even carbonates tap water. Restaurants really should not be charging for it or using it instead of spring water. If you call it to the managers attention, they are usually so embarrassed they remove it from the bill... FYI

        And then they use the VOSS bottles, wide mouth, easy to refill.
        Notice whenever they bring one to your table it's never sealed.

    2. Wow, so they charged you for speck that never showed up, $6 per person for tap

      1. How did you resolve the incorrect charges?

        1. Imagine if you ordered the bottled water.

          1. At the "Hungry Cat" in Hollywood I had something similar happen. That however was more my fault. The waitress asked, "sparkling or flat water?" Thinking "flat" meant "tap" I said flat not taking into my classier-then-I'm-used-to surroundings into consideration. I learned my lesson 6 or so dollars later that's for sure.

              At Mix in Las Vegas, you have a choice of bottled water only, at 12 a pop, makes me wonder do they cook pasta in bottled water and fill their dishwasher with bottled water.
