Pizzas are on the smaller size but good to share for two. Handmade artisan style pizzas...very good. Entrees are very small but also very good. Yummy desserts! Nice place for a special date or if you want a slight splurge.

Although we've always thought that the food at Pizzeria Ortica was decent (not great), we thought we'd get a quick dinner there last evening because it was convenient to a performance that we were attending later in the evening. We were treated so rudely, that we left before eating or drinking anything, and will surely never return. We arrived just... More

Everything about Pizzeria Ortica was excellent; great food, a pleasant room, a broad, interesting menu of Italian favorites, plus a good selection of wines and beer. The only glitch was less that focused service, which caused a few uncomfortable delays. That said, the good is very good, so give it a try.

Good pizza and it's kicked up a notch! This place is not Pizza Hut so dress accordingly! Adults are dressed up a bit and I actually think it should be that way for this place It as great to catch a nice dinner and cocktail before seeing a show at the Segerstrom Art Center. Very nice evening.

So. The pizza is great. Really great. The service is ok. A little average. But what bugs is ON TOP of all this is a "Kitchen Appreciation Charge" on top of the service. Really. Plain greedy management I'm afraid.

My husband and I love Pizzeria Ortica. The food is delicious and they also have a great bar and wine list. We often eat at Pizzeria Ortica before attending the theatre.

Best pizza I have ever had anywhere bar none. Drinks are also good. An absolute hidden gem in the OC. It seems their appetizer menu is also expanding and so is their pasta menu which is also very solid not spectacular but solid.

An upscale restaurant, it's a great place for a nice dinner andsuperb drinks. Excellent and NOT ordinary appetizers, a "happening" bar area and very good service make Pizzeria Ortica a solid"go to" when entertaining guests, date night or a stop before going to the theatre, just a couple of minutes walk away. Convenient parking.

Nice restaurant/pizzeria with great food. The pizza is the closest you can find to the real Neapolitan pizza in the area. Both the agnolotti and the gnocchi are delicious, made fresh, with creative sauce accompanying them. Our waitress was attentive and the service fast, but not rushed. Pizzeria Ortica is located next door to the Segerstrom, making it a perfect... More
