pizzeria ortica

We went to this pizzeria in Costa Mesa with friends, which is the best way to sample several options. They have excellent appetizers, like the carciofi, the crispy brussels sprouts, the roast vegetable plate, or a plate of prosciutto. The salads look good and healthy. Pizza is obviously one of the attractions - we tasted the Guanciale, the Amalfi, and a Prosciutto pizza that is baked before the toppings go on; this one actually was our favorite. Their pasta is pretty good too, whether you like ravioli or pappardelle, but the sauces are less interesting than the pizza toppings. All in all, recommended for good Italian meals.
