Eating on the Patio at Papa Lennons

All menu selections are very good; we have never been disappointed. My favorites are the Mediterranean Pizza, the Beatnik Salad, and the Thai Pizza. You can have this with a side of French Fries if you are sharing with friends. Try to eat on the patio rather than indoors where it is noisy. It's... read more

This is one of those small, intimate places with patio and inside dining. The patio dining reminds me of a charming cafe tucked away on a side street in a small Italian village. The menu is small enough to take the pain out of extensive menus, but small enough to have choices between sandwiches, salads, pizza, pasta and few specials.... More

This is a nice, very casual little place serving great 10 inch pizzas and several choices of delicious, freshly made salads. The salads are large and easily serve two. They have a good selection of pastas and a couple of Panini sandwiches available, too. A comfortable patio area is also available for dining as well as inside eating space. We... More

My favorites here are the Thai chicken pizza and the veggie sandwich. Everything is good. I think their salad entrees could be improved a bit though.

This is a great place to come for a casual meal, or a take home dinner. Outdoor seating or in, with many great food options. This is one of my go to places for a reliable meal that doesn't break the bank.

I have found myself at this little hole in the wall more frequently as the weather has warmed up. Great little outdoor patio to grab a bite with friends or dining solo. The food is good especially the salads. The Chinese Chicken Salad is Fab...and the pasta pretty good too. I love pizza and sadly for me this is not... More

This place has been a top Ojai experience for many years: traditional Italian menu is simple, but predictably good, with pizzas, salads, appetizers, pasta dishes, now serving gluten-free pasta (yum!) nothing super-gourmet but all served in a friendly family style. Indoors and outdoors seating. Some self-service. Always clean and pleasant atmosphere, wines, beers, gelatos... Prices are reasonable, and long wooden... More
