You are treated poorly when you tell the server you have a groupon. The food was fair. The pizza was soggy. Never going back and telling everyone.

Its a nice place but Happy Hour doesn't start until 8pm and its pricey. $17-$20 for a pizza that is an individual size but is cut into 6 small slices. Not sure I would go back. I don't care for restaurants that pour your wine to the exact amount of a measured pour.

Server was a bit annoying as I am still eating my entree and asking if we want to see a dessert menu. Please take on a more European approach and let people enjoy their meal without being RUSHED!

More choices if doing Groupon. This restaurant is very good but I would not have gone back based on my Groupon experience.

A nice place to enjoy a quick bite, with authentic Italian pizza.

I would barely recommend this place -- the pizza is awesome, but the service was awful. Its also really loud and overcrowded. The diet coke was flat, and in general we were very uncomfortable. I think I would order the pizza to go next time...

It was our first time there. We tried it because of Groupon. We really enjoyed everything we ate. We will be back.

it was obvious the restaurant was tired of Groupon patrons. Our server tried to be polite but you could tell he wasn't thrilled to serve of of the prix fixe groupon menu. The pizza was below average.

The Groupon description was misleading. The selections were very limited - the items were not at all generous and were not up to par with what we've enjoyed at Pizzeria Ortica in the past. This really was not much of a "bargain" at all.

From Our Editors

Proprietor and chef David Myers has never been a man to cut corners in the kitchen. He honed his attention to detail while working for Chicago's legendary Charlie Trotter and French gourmand Daniel Boulud, and then went on to earn praise of his own, including a Michelin star for his Sona Restaurant in West Hollywood.

At Chef Myers' Italian-spun invention, Pizzeria Ortica, patrons can peer at the open kitchen and watch as his team carefully assembles locally sourced and artisanal ingredients such as crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, cured pork cheek, and fennel pollen. An 800-degree wood-burning oven adds crispy finishing touches to Neapolitan-style pizzas built atop handmade dough, served alongside traditional antipastos and steaming portions of pasta.

A rustically modern interior of exposed white brick and large, glowing overhead lights offers a perfect complement to the restaurant's simple yet gourmet cuisine, as does a selection of Prohibition-era-inspired cocktails. Behind the bar, mixologists muddle fruit and herbs culled fresh from the farmers' market, and then mix them with gins, scotches, and whiskeys.
