The owner is a lovely man who obviously takes great pride in presenting his food and welcoming diners to his establishment. We've eaten here many times, and have also attended their wine tasting events. Highly recommended for couples or friends for a nice evening out. Good value. The space is small, but charming.

When we first pulled up we were a little surprised of the setting it is on the second floor of a strip mall. Not what you might expect. That feeling went away soon as we were greeted warmly and sat right away. This is a small not fancy place but get past it and you will have a nice enjoyable... More

This is a ersatz Italian. Nothing hits the mark. Everything is over cooked and lacking in authenticity. Italian food is about simple fresh ingredients cooked well with a balance of flavours. At ifs brst three is nothing better. Problem is other than one waiter no-one has even been to Italy.

I had the pasta with meat sauce and a spinach salad and cold bread with no butter. Pasta was just ok. Not bad, but low on flavor and the serving was on the small side. Salad did not work. Again a small serving. Spinach, walnuts, Apples and gorgonzola Cheese. I just could not get past that cheese. Bottom Line: Sitting... More

My partner was out of town on business, and I decided to take the boys on a weeknight for dinner at Mosto Enoteca in Marina del Rey. What a wonderful treat for everyone. We sat on the deck overlooking Washington Blvd and a peek of Mother's beach in the distance. The owner and his wife were there and were very... More

We found the menu appealing and it did not disappoint. Painfully slow service such a shame we couldn't wait for pudding!

My husband & I visited Mosto last evening for an early dinner. Our food was good and creative. I'd advise readers to think of it as having dinner in someone's home, as the interior isn't scrubbed (but fine), and there is no corporate feel at all. I ordered from the Happy Hour menu and was pleased with everything. The pasta... More

We read previous reviews & thought we'd try this on a Sunday for dinner. Service was sporadic, I ordered 2 cheeses for an appetiser & had to ask for some bread to go with it (how else would you eat cheese?), premium price for a glass of wine & for the fish of the day - $35! This was for... More
