Best Lunch Special in Town

The View.
Pizzeria Mozza is known for a lot of things. A bargain is not one of them. Well, until now. They recently announced a "Special" available at either the pizza or wine bar Monday-Thursday from noon-5 p.m. and 11 p.m.-midnight. For $20, you get any pizza on the menu, a glass of red or white wine and any dessert. That's something like a $35 value FOR FREAKING PIZZERIA MOZZA. 

Never one to throw out hyperbole without doing my due diligence, I recently (along with a friend) trudged down to Mozza at 2 p.m. to make sure this deal is for reals. Two hours later, I am happy to report after our research visit, Pizzeria Mozza now easily houses LA's BEST LUNCH SPECIAL.  Not sure if my frugal blogging friend, Midtown Lunch would agree, but I challenge anyone to dig up a better deal than $20 for the city's best pizza (the Bianca) and dessert (Butterscotch Budino). Plus wine! From Italy! In Europe!

Below are pictures from our meal. I want to eat them.
