Delicious homemade fresh & authentic italian

I had the lasagna and it was delicious. A smaller portion(yay) with homemade pasta. Perfect combinations of cheese, delicious sauce. Yum. Great atmosphere. Excellent attentive service. We learned later that there is a patio so ask for seating there. Lovely.

It was a beautiful (though a little cool) evening and we wanted to sit outside. So they gave us this lovely small table---by the public bathrooms. Flush, flush. Just what I want to hear when I'm eating. Plus, some other patrons were allowing their children to run about just outside the seating area, i.e. right by our table. So we... More

Very gracious in accommodating a party of one with a table on the patio, which is lovely. Seafood is great.

This place had so many choices and great specials. They were very family like and had grown much of the food being used in true dishes. They were great for families but also couples. Felt like you were being taken care of by family and great Italian feel.

Osteria Monte Grappa had one of the best ravioli dishes and one of the best panna cottas outside of Italy, and we've been to Italy a LOT. The atmosphere and decor are very casual at OMG, and the back patio is nice and quiet. What makes OMG stand out is the food, or at least the dishes we had. We... More

Where just wondering around Ojai decided where to dine, and then we got a whiff of garlic, onions....Walked up a side street and found the restaurant. We had a lovely evening. Friendly staff, good food and reasonably priced. We will tell our friends and we will be back.

First of all, my cocktail The Dorotini, was delicious. Described as "lightly spiced fresh local tomato water, lemon, basil & vodka" it was like gazpacho as a summer cocktail. I loved it!! We shared several delicious & fresh salads. My linguini with clams was just packed with clams, and so tasty & light. I believe they make all their pasta... More

This was our favorite restaurant for lunch/dinner in Ojai. Excellent menu, unique drinks and wonderful fresh food. Whether dining inside or outside on the patio, you can't go wrong. Loved this restaurant.

Fresh & delicious food! Our hotel staff recommended this place and it did not disappoint. We were able to eat outside which was lovely. We had a delicious tomato salad with burrata to start and each had fresh homemade pasta dishes - all were super delicious. Staff was very friendly and service was right on top of things.
