Mozza 2 Go ~ Delivery and Take Out
- lvgoodfood Jul 3, 2009 02:49 PM
Yesterday was our first of hopefully multiple visits to Mozza 2 Go.
A beautiful shop! Very nice and helpful attendants. The 2 go menu is basically the same as Pizzeria Mozza, it includes antipasti, lasagne, salads, meats, paninis, pizzas, and a variety of desserts.
We bought a few items including a couple of paninis, and a butterscotch budino. Everything we bought was pure perfection.
I am a big fan of Pizzeria Mozza, for me Mozza 2 Go it's a great idea.
We grabbed our food at Mozza, and drove to the farmers market at 3rd and Fairfax, there we bought some fruit and drinks to complement our great lunch.
A few photos here:

I stopped in today mid afternoon and ordered a pizza, salad and budino. At the time I was the only one in there ordering and was told to come back in half an hour, when I came back there were several more people making and picking up orders, hope it stays this hassle free! Agree that the attendants were very nice and helpful. Wondered why the big side room was closed off? Pizza was a bit over cooked, but held up pretty well even after reheating. Thank god I do not live close by as I would be stopping in for budino's to go way more often than I need to! To expensive for a regular rotation as a pizza take out option, but nice to be able to stop in when the craving hits and for special occasions, and now that I have 2 go menu in hand without the wait.
Thank you for the post. Beautiful pictures. That panini looks amazing. I've always wondered how they are and it looks like they use the pizza bread. I was there at at 6:45PM on Wednesday (opening day) and picked up a pizza on my way to a movie. IT WAS DELICIOUS as always. The lady at the counter was so lovely and helpful. Shop is adorable as has been stated. Can't wait to go back.
Ordered tonight. This is clearly an exciting addition to the culinary landscape for anyone who lives nearby and enjoys eating at home, as opposed to in a restaurant.
The good: the food is all of the same great stuff from Mozza, although a slightly pared down menu with a couple of surprising additions (Mario's Lasagne - it must be incredible and I can't wait to try it -- I suppose this is the lone pasta because it holds up well to reheating). The baked goods are just so right, in particular the soft iced raisin cookie the conveniently splits into four pieces. While there doesn't seem to be much of an attempt to deliver the pizzas themselves hot, they do reheat well right in the box at 350 and are nearly as satisfying as the fresh ones at the restaurant. I do like dressing their salads myself (as the dressing is on the side to go) as I find Mozza's salads somewhat persistently overdressed.
The bad: they do need to iron a few kinks out of the service, which I have high confidence they will do quickly, given the very high standards of service at the restaurants. A few minor growing pains, though. It does seem like a one hour prep time is required at peak hours. I'm not sure about the delivery area, but it seems fairly wide - not cheap though, $12 for nearby locations for orders under $100. There is parking behind the restaurant, but it is very limited and I suspect it may be difficult to park to pick up your order once it gets more crowded.
I simply can't wait for the pizza "sculoa" to open up where Matthew Modina will give some cooking lessons. Most of Mozza's food is uncomplicated but they do get basic flavor combinations just right, and there is magic in that.
Overall will this place make my life materially better than it used to be? Yes.
