Love it!

I like this restaurant and yes it is pricey. I had the risotto with shrimp fish and scallop for lunch. It comes with soup and bread. The servers are very nice. My lunch costs $16 before tax but it was worth it. My risotto had tiger shrimp....and I had a lot of pieces of fish/scallop. They were... read more

My wife and I just took a friend to Bistro 13, which I consider the Best Italian Restaurant in Camarillo. It has always had great atmosphere and food. If you order an Entrée, it comes with soup or salad for free. It is worth the extra $2.95 to upgrade to the small Caesar salad. Our friend had the Cioppino which... More

Bistro 13 has been a favorite for us..until tonight. Service was slow. I ordered a pasta which was good. One friend ordered wild caught salmon which was overcooked. She ordered it with mashed potatoes instead of risotto and it arrived with risotto. Another friend ordered a rib eye which he did NOT like at all. The restaurant did take the... More

The food was pretty good but not for the price. The service was slow but very friendly and accomodating. My checca was over-cooked and not as described but they were nice enough to take it back and try again. The salad was over dressed and soggy. I would like to give it another try but the kitchen really needs to... More

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
