GREAT people here. Very professional, very friendly, great service. Our starters were creative and exceptional. Liver pate was excellent. The mozzarella cheese with ham and fruit was my friend's favorite. Loved the massive amount of fish in my mixed seafood dish. The tenderloin was not tender, as it had grisly bits that should have been cut out, but the sauce... More

This place is a gem. Only problem is they close after lunch and open at 5:30pm. In hearing other people talk i think most restaurants in Ojai close after lunch and open at 5:30. There was a line to get in this place and we were one of the first ones waiting. It was worth the wait. There was four... More

Once a year a group of us drive to Ojai for the annual Holiday Homes Tour. We are always in search of a good restaurant for lunch. We dined st this restaurant last year when they were at their old location. It was a good meal last year. We noticed that they had moved...and we tried them again. What a... More

I was driving thru and needed to eat. I was directed to this restaurant by a local. Not expecting much I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the burratta with beets salad. The burratta was very fresh and creamy - delicious. Great with the toasty warm bread which also came with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. A simple satisfying... More

Had lunch here a while ago with a friend and it was a delightful if leisurely experience. Service was friendly, ambience was good and our meals delicious.

Again coming back to Osteria was kind of like going home. We dreamt about our last meal and couldn't wait to come back a few years later. The food is good the salads are better than the pasta. The tiramisu is okay not great the gelato with espresso was fantastic. We will always go back when we come to Ohio.

Went here with a group of 6 for dinner. Wonderful experience! We sat outside on the back patio...what a great setting! The salads are huge, so they can definitely be shared. I got the butternut squash ravioli, and it was superb! It was also a good-sized portion. On the Tuesday night we went, they weren't charging a corkage fee...don't know... More

We are visiting for a short time in the Ventura area. We noticed that this restaurant had received good reviews so I called to make reservations. The person on the phone said that they didn't take reservations for just two but they could fit us in. We got there in 20 minutes and the place was full and they said... More

Lunch here on an arugula salad with diver scallops and good Italian bread with a glass of craft beer was perfect. Dinner began with an absolute "must have" pate topped with caremalized onions and arugula sprouts drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Good crusty table bread again but with a truly fine frantoio oil for dipping. Home made fettuccine with ground lamb... More
