Pizzeria Ortica is known for its "fabulous Neapolitan pies" (Zagat), which can "make you feel like you're tasting pizza for the first time," raves OC Weekly. For $49, regularly $92, two can sit down to a prix fixe dinner with wine at this Costa Mesa eatery.

My promotional value was expired on September 1 and they would not honor the promotion so we paid full price for our meal. I personally believe this is poor customer service.

We sat at the bar and the bartender Joel was excellent. He recommended a very nice bottle of wine that we enjoyed. I give Joel a five star rating.

Octopus app and pasta were absolutely amazing - like out of this world!

The chopped salad was super bitter and they brought it after all of our other food because they forgot about it. The margarita pizza soggy and we expected better considering the name of the restaurant. The wait staff was unclear about what we were supposed to get with our coupon, and the service was a little unprofessional with the waitress telling us we were her last table and she was ready to be off.
