We sat outside on the patio and the mood was perfect. The wine list was extensive.I had the Salmon which was cooked perfectly and was just delicious. My husband had ravioli pillow with a delicious beef filling. A wonderful dinner.

The food was very good, especially the scallops. The best part was the outdoor patio in back. Nice little spot for a romantic dinner. Staff was friendly and helpful if not overly attentive.

Storefront setting on the main street in Ojai. The daily menu is outstanding with many freshly prepared meals. It is so extensive, it is hard to believe that there is a "regular menu". Many unique appetizers and entrees to choose from. Wine and bar available. The four of us really enjoyed our dinners . The deserts were just "OK".

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at this little place in Ojai. We arrived in Ojai with no idea of where to eat, and only came across this place after rejecting a few other places. We parked behind the restaurant, and walked through the patio dining area (which, on a less hot day, we would have loved). The... More

Loved our evening on the patio. Such a lovely setting for some local wine and great food. We started with the Italian meats and cheeses, a perfect compliment to our Casa Barranca PinotNoir. We ended up taking most of our entrees home because the portions were big and the food too good to leave behind.

The food was phenomenal. The pasta was great, the appetizer was great, the wine was excellent. The service was good; it was busy and the locals who came in got better service than we did as tourists. I get it; tourists come and go, but the locals support the business all of the time. I still think that it is... More

The bruschetta was fresh, delicious, the flatbread margharita pizza was warm and melty, the wine list had many choices. Enjoyed the evening. The service was not unkind, but a bit underwhelming.

Homey waitress and attentive wait staff made our evening exceptional. Two couples, we split salads and pizza AND desserts! All delicious and good value. The savvy waitress prepared two checks without being asked...she had noted who was with whom and took the initiative! Food is all fresh. Sunday nite's fare was purchased that a.m. at the weekly farmers' market one... More

This place is terrific. The staff is super, super friendly and helpful, not to mention extremely accommodating. The food is actually very good, almost on par with European authentic gourmet standards. For the price, its a very good place to dine!

Great food. Great service. We were walking around the Arcade and stumbled upon this little gem. I was surprised that we were the only people in the restaurant at noon on a Friday. It turns out that most of the patrons were dining in the back patio.
