Chef David Myers has a passion for Neapolitan-style pizza and the rich, rustic flavors found in southern Italy—succulent antipasti, vibrant salads, hand-made pastas and wood-fired pizza. Traditional cooking techniques are paired with fresh, locally sourced ingredients plus select wines and artful cocktails.
We combine traditional techniques (everything is hand-made) with local artisanal ingredients. Featuring an 800-degree wood burning oven, the menu recreates classic Italian favorites—antipasti, pasta, pizza, gelato and more. Friendly service, a comfortable setting and convenient location have made Pizzeria Ortica a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
Learn how Chef Justin creates Pizzeria Ortica’s signature dishes. Each class we will feature instructions on a different area of our menu. Learn the basics of pizza and pasta making in a hands-on, interactive environment. You will be in our kitchen making pasta from scratch and learning the basics of making pizza in a wood-fired oven. Class will be followed by a meal with our Chef and paired with the perfect glass of wine!
- $75 per person (plus tax)
- Each class will be limited to 8 aspiring chefs
