Mozza: the emperor's new clothes

It isn't so much the decibel level as it is the odd tinny echo that makes it possible to hear somebody eight tables away but not the person across the table from you. The pizzeria is loud, also, but in a lively jammed New York kind of way.

Mozza: the emperor's new clothes

How can people possibly like this restaurant? My wife and I just had our second meal at Osteria Mozza and both times the food was so salty we came away headache-y, insanely thirsty and oddly depressed. Even the desserts were salty. How is this possible, from the woman who gave us the desserts at Campanile in the great old days, and La Brea Bakery bread? Noise level, general lack of flavor and salt, salt, salt. I just don't get it.
