I upgraded the rating after returning a couple of times. The food is still solid, if not getting better. They have a nice little bar in the back room I never noticed before. I think they treat repeat customers well. I still like the gnocchi and always get that when I am here, but I will try something else next... More

The owner was delightful and the food was delicious! Lobster ravioli for me and chicken picatta for my husband. We will definitely be back next time we're in Camarillo.

I had an evening meal here which was delicious. I chose off the pasta menu and you could choose the pasta you wanted with the accompanying sauce/meat. I chose the Novello (chicken, basil, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes) over penne pasta. Mmmmm!!! This came with soup or salad and I chose the lentil soup. The soup was nice but not great... More

Yes, this restaurant is in a strip mall and is not very big, but the food is outstanding. My husband and I have come here a few times in the past year and have not been disappointed. We have been able to eat outside each time we have visited, as their patio dining is located ideally from too much sun... More

I love this restaurant. I have been there with friends for no reason in particular, and I have been there for family celebrations! It is always a wonderful treat. The food is wonderful, and it feels as though there is a pull to get me in the door!

Our experience was frightening. I was assaulted by the owner for asking for picatta sauce on the salmon risotto dish. Instead the meal was served with nothing on it at all. When I insisted that it needed sauce, the owner took a knife and threw it down on my plate and food splatter all over me. It scared me and... More

Always delicious. Small and friendly place in, yes, a stripmall. Great garlicky homemade bread to start. Fish entrees are fresh and flavorful, and prepared just right. Risotto dishes are rich and so good. Never had a not-perfect meal.

Ventura County isn't known as a gastronomic destination, but with more restaurants like Bistro 13 it certainly could be. Though located at the eastern edge of Camarillo beneath the Conejo Grade in a shopping center the interior ambiance is cozy. Owner Giovanni Tromba - acting as host & bartender - is charming and accommodating. The food was delightful. We arranged... More

I can't think of a restaurant in the whole county that has a better menu, better tasting food or better service. It is a consistantly perfect place to eat.
