Party of 3 on this night @PorkyBelly.
I had a somewhat disappointing dinner at Pizzeria Mozza. Nothing really stood out aside from Nancy’s unique crust and an excellent squash blossom fritti. On the other hand, pacing of the meal was nonexistent. Our server basically brought out all 6 of our appetizers in one go and our two pizzas and lasagne perhaps 10 mins after while we were still furiously trying to finish the appetizers…In the end, we were done with all our savory food within an hour.
Light and refreshing. The roasted tomatoes are oh-so-sweet.
squash blossom fritti with ricotta
Shatteringly crispy batter is a touch oily but this souped up version of a cheese stick is excellent.
chicken wings alla diavola
Introducing dry & stringy chicken wings…at $4 a wing, this really shouldn’t be overcooked…
mussels al forno with salsa calabrese
Plump and juicy mussels. The accompanying toasts are way too toasted so they’re more like croutons and don’t actually soak up any of the broth…shame…
chicken Liver with capers, parsley & pancetta
napolitana | tomato, mozzarella di bufala, olives, anchovies, chilies & fried capers
The combination of anchovies, olives, and capers are just way too salty…no bueno…but the flavorful crust is good
meatballs, mozzarella di bufala, tomato & fresh oregano
Again, crust is good but the evenness of saucing and toppings, as seen above, left a lot to be desired. I suspect that Nancy will slap me silly if I ever offer a pizza that looks like that to her. Am I gonna get crucify for saying that I like Triple Beam much better?
lasagne verde bolognese
I’m not much of a lasagna person but I liked this one and especially the caramelized cheese layer on top.
Filled with bolognese in each layer
meyer lemon gelato pie with champagne vinegar sauce & candied lemon zest
A light and refreshing way to end the night. Highlight of this dessert is the candied lemon zest which really breaks up any chance of monotonous while eating the pie.
