Orta, a new venture by Jimmy Burke (Tullio’s in Quincy and Riva in Scituate Harbor), opened in Pembroke yesterday. The casual Italian restaurant makes its digs in the former home of Vesuvio restaurant.
Among the offerings, expect brick-oven pizza ($7.95-$13.95), a menu of little plates ($4), and pasta and risotto dishes ($11-$17.95). Entrees range from $13.95 to $22.95. Also worth mentioning is that Orta has a full liquor license.
Orta — 75 Washington St. (Route 53), Pembroke.
