Don't let the name fool you...

Yes, they serve the best pizza in LA, maybe in the US (I have been to Pizzeria Bianco, Pizzeria Mozza, Frank and Pepe, Motorino, etc) but they also serve amazing homemade pastas and entrees.

The restaurant has a weird long rectangular shape and high ceilings so it can feel odd and get very loud. And the service is spotty but the food makes up for it all.

Tip: Order something from the menu you would normally never try and you will be so pleasantly surprised. GUARANTEED. For me those items were, the octopus salad, pear and pecorino tortelli and the asparagus/egg pizza.

Milanese Pizza

The most amazing flavors on a pizza AND you can save the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. Fried egg, asparagus and fontina on a crust that is light, chewy and so tasty… Has to be that biga starter they use on the dough.

Pear and Pecorino Tortelli

Such a great combination of sweet and savory and the simple pan friend sage on top… yummmy. Who knew fruit and cheese would taste so good in pasta

Branzino alla Trapanese

A boneless branzino (skin on, yummm) cooked with a pesto of nuts and some other green herb, don’t think it’s basil. Also two thin lemon slices in the middle. You won’t want branzino any other way.

I thought the food at Pizzaria Ortica was pretty good but the service was slow. It is a cute restaurant to go to for lunch but make sure you are not in a hurry!
