One of the most-visited pizza places in Pasadena, Luigi Ortega's offers terrific pizza and tasty sandwiches. It's a popular spot for guests looking for outstanding food.
Defined by its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when you want to soak up a bit of that Cali sun. There's not really a recommended attire, so feel free to dress comfortably. Also, though the prices are considered to be lower than average, you aren't going to sacrifice any quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
For those who are interested, the robust menu does feature items that are gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian. Plus, it's a good option for families with children, dining on a budget, and large groups. WiFi's available if you want to link your device up, and in addition to its quick service (take-out is available), the restaurant also offers delivery, and can even cater an event for you. Or, if you just want to stop by for a beverage, the restaurant has a pretty broad selection at its bar.
A lunch and dinner staple in the community for almost seven decades, you won't walk away from Luigi Ortega's disappointed. Visitors to the restaurant have access to a private lot nearby or can park on the street.
