Pizzeria Ortica will delight your palette and warm your heart—Italian style. Our vibrant eatery at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa welcomes guests for lunch, aperitivo, dinner (including a family-style special), and a late night happy hour with a stunning wine list and cocktail program.
We combine traditional techniques (everything is hand-made) with local artisanal ingredients. Featuring an 800-degree wood burning oven, the menu recreates classic Italian favorites—antipasti, pasta, pizza, gelato and more. Friendly service, a comfortable setting and convenient location have made Pizzeria Ortica a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
