LaTerza better than O'Mozza

russkar | Aug 15, 2007 08:36 AM

I know what your probably thinking? No Way! Yeah Way.

We went to O' Mozza two weeks ago and ordered 19 dishes and shared them among six of us. Some were fantastic like the Octopus , Egg Raviolo & Quail and some were not good like the Scamorza & Linguini's (way too spicy, and we all eat Mexican food regularly). Most of the other dishes were just Average.

LaTerza last night was the best experience in years. Some big changes have occurred in the last month. The new Chef (Lucca) is from Il Fornaio and absolutely amazing. Gino was cooking also.
Amuse Busche
Marinated Artichoke (always great)
Antipasta assortment (solid)
Burrata w/fresh tomatoes
Steak Tartar (best we've had in LA)
Risotto w/fresh black truffle & baby scallops
Pappardelli w/mushrooms & sausage
Swordfish (crusted with Basil, Breadcrumbs & forbidden rice)
Rack of Lamb (fantastic)
Nona Cake (best we've had in LA, better than Fraiche which we really liked also).
Overall the food was very good and the consensus was that everything was great!
