This is the completely made up term for the building housing three of the greatest Italian restaurants in the city – Osteria Mozza, Pizzeria Mozza, and Chi’Spacca. From the casual but still fantastic eats at the Pizzeria (which you can get until 12am), to the traditional pasta at Osteria, to the meat parade from god over at Chi-Spacca, if you want Italian, Melrose and Highland is simply where you go.
