Ortica has by far the best classic pizzas and a great atmosphere. It's our go to restaurant prior to the performance at the Performing Arts Center. Friendly staff and service with validation for parking in the structure. Recommend reservation, especially when there's a performance on the night. Also a nice bar area to meet up with friends for a drink... More

At 9:30 pm on a Friday night (they closed at 10) we had a Pancetta pork belly pizza (lots of lean pork meat) and a tiramisu at Pizzeria Ortica. The sauce on the Pancetta pizza was delicious, and we were delighted with the tiramisu which was not full of whipped cream but rather had a lot of lady fingers and... More

Small oddly shaped restaurant with very tall ceilings, located on the end of a building. Sitting by windows, cramped seating, cool by windows. Upscale (read expensive) menu, with some hand crafted cocktails listed, but do have full bar. Service was spotty, took forever for drinks, had to ask twice for bread. Pizza was good, pretty large, the salami one was... More

This was my second visit to Pizzeria Ortica and the budino is still fabulous. We ate dinner here before going to the theatre and they were very respectful and watchful of our time. The food was good. They have a nice wine selection and beer choices. I had a special that was a high end version of fish and chips... More

Had a party of 30 prearranged in their private room for 6:30. Salad and pizza. Everyone was there on time. Salad and drinks were on time. Pizza didn't show up until 7:45 after numerous requests. They already knew what we wanted as we pre-ordered and knew how many to prepare. When it finally got there, all the ingredients slid off... More

Very popular place a block from the Westin. Three of us ordered 3 pizzas - one with mushrooms and fancy cheese, one with prosciutto and fancy cheese, and my personal favorite - pancetta (Italian bacon, very sweet and especially yummy)and fancy cheese. There were of course more ingredients on each one. It's the gourmet pizza style place. Great service, nice... More

At first we began coming here before SCR and SCFTA performances. It is so easy to park, dine and walk to the theater. But the food is so terrific we now come here all the time. The menu changes seasonally and so does the excellent wine list. We always begin by sharing the mussels. Pick anything from the menu -... More

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
