Their pizza toppings are great options. The crust is the issue. Tastes premade, uniform share, not authentic in the least. If they's fix the crust, I'd give them a 5. Eat there for other things...just not pizza.

We walked by in the afternoon and tried Osteria on a whim. So lucky. Italian, local produce, organic, well thought-out menu, and so good. Flatbreads from the wood-burning oven are insane. So many pasta choices, including a first - seeing spaghetti squash as an option for pasta. That made me almost as happy as the soup of the day, a... More

We are Ojai locals, and this is one of our favorite places to eat -be it for lunch or dinner. (They do have breakfast as well, but a fairly limited menu for that). If you have only one place to eat in Ojai - Monte Grappa would be the place. Always super fresh and delicious food. They have a large... More

Authentic italian with knowledgeable servers in a patio setting. Great wine list. Also, good area to walk off the meal afterwards.

Authentic Italian delicious food, nice service. We went wine tasting and we able to bring in our wine and were not charged a corkage fee, that is one of the reasons we ate there and are so glad we did!

We had the watermelon feta salad, prosciutto gorgonzola fig pizza and the saffron scallop risotto. Only the risotto rated Ok, the other items were fantastic.

I've always picked this restaurant every time I have visited Ojai for the food and patio experience. Last Tuesday I brought my daughter and 6 year old grandson for lunch. The waiter wanted our drink order right after seating, so we ordered water for the table. He didn't come back for another 15 minutes, and when he did he was... More

We had high expectations based on other reviews but sadly, the restaurant did not meet our expectations. The staff was quite friendly and the back patio is lovely, the food however was the disappointment. I had to send my spaghetti squash dish back as it was very watery, even the server noticed it. When the replacement meal I was brought... More

This like other restaurants in Ojai is overpriced for an out of town getaway. My salad was a mess of vegetables and my husbands pasta was inedible. Thank God they have wine! But really, it's not worth it. Ca Marco down the road is a heck of a lot better!

Worst EVER Italian food! After reading all the wonderful reviews on TA and Yelp, we were so excited to eat at OMG, but were extremely disappointed with the food. My 6 yr old daughter had a penne with tomato sauce and chicken. It was dry and the chicken tasted old. Usually, i would encourage her to try to finish her... More
