Been here several times with small and big groups. Pasta excellent. Location is quiet and sweet. Sit outside. Nice wine list.

My husband and I dined at this restaurant two nights during our visit to Ojai. The food was delicious. They served us bread with oil and their homemade balsamic vinegar. It was the best we've ever had. The pasta and pizza was delicious and everything tasted super fresh. We appreciated the family feel this restaurant had to offer. Highly recommend!

We are native of St. Louis where there is a large Italian population and as a result there is a ton of Italian food. Many places are owned and operated by first generation Italians. OMG was recommended to us and so we made it a point to go there for my birthday. I ordered one of my favorite things to... More

OK, so I am really picky about my Italian food because my Noni was a great cook from Formia, Italy. Outside of the Italian North End of Boston, this is as close to real as it's gotten for me. I love this food.....the pizza was outstanding, the bread was to die for...it has the light but chewy texture of a... More

This was our first time dining at Osteria Monte Grappa. It was recommended by a friend and we are glad she told us about it. We had a great dinner and will be going back again hopefully soon.

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!
