Had a lovely dinner for two at the Osteria last night, where service was exceptionally friendly and helpful (without being intrusive) and everything we ordered was truly excellent, including a delightfully crisp white wine from the proprietor's family vineyard in Italy. Especially recommend the bacala - poached cod served over polenta with a lovely sauce fragrant of fresh tarragon and... More

We were in town for the weekend, and decided to have dinner at OMG after receiving a recommendation from the bartender at The Ojai Vinyard bar. We arrived early and the restaurant was not open for dinner, so we decided to do some window shopping in the shops nearby. When we returned to the restaurant 20 minutes later, the dining... More

Had a take out order on recent visit to ojai. Pasta was perfectly cooked with delicious sauce. Hostess answering phone was very friendly an gracious and offered everything we needed to complete meal without my having to ask. We didn't eat in so I can't to speak to atmosphere but food and takeout service were good.

Definitely creative food and good service make this a worthwhile choice in a town with few fine dining options. The eggplant dish was outstanding and the seafood in saffron sauce was filling and plentiful. Must say it was a bit loud for our sensibilities, but decor and service balance that out somewhat. Locals rave about the pizzas BTW.

If you go to OMG expecting mile-high lasagna, you'll be surprised and delighted. Their Italian dishes are light, delicate and friendly to waistlines and tastebuds alike. Try the handmade ravioli with sage butter, any of the fish dishes, the trout and sole are both lovely if in season. The wood-fired pizzas are delicious for lunch, too. Can you tell I... More

Monte Grappa is a solid choice. Pasta dishes are better than the pizza as they struggle to get the dough right. Nice build-out in the middle of town.

We tried without luck to get a reservation for the Friday after Thanksgiving, but were told they could take walk-ins. We went early (6:00 p.m.) and were pleased to score a nice table for four. We all ordered very different items: salmon and pasta, sausage/sauce w/ pasta, a vegetarian pasta dish, and their signature beef ravioli. Everyone was happy with... More
