Papa Lennon's on West El Roblar is a good restaurant with awesome pizza and it has a good ambiance. Recommended. More organic choices would be better.

This is a charming restaurant in the Meiners Oaks area. It is casual and friendly. They have the best Caesar salad ever--lots of garlic. Pizza, sandwiches, salads and fries. Really good homemade lemonade. The patio is lovely most of the year. Sometimes there is music.

We went here last Saturday night. A totally fun and casual Italian Restaurant in Ojai. Sat outdoors on the patio with live music. Recommend the Mediterranean pizza and the Margarita pizza, also the Caesar Chicken wrap. Fun wine list and friendly fast service, located just out of town.

We stopped here for a quick lunch on the way to Santa Barbara. The staff was not super friendly but the food came out quickly and was great. We had a caprese to start and the mozzarella and tomatoes were good but the cheese did not taste like buffalo mozzarella to us. I ordered the meatball sub and the spicy... More

Super good food! Somewhat unusually, like Thai Chicken Pizza, but surprisingly good! Amazing Caesar Salad too! Fun outdoor and indoor seating.

Papa Lennons's has a limited menu (thank you) and probably the friendliest staff in Ojai. It's small and cozy and is a perfect lunch stop. Their usual pizzas are always good. A local favorite is the Caesar Chicken Wrap. Small bar serves artisanal beer and wine.

Very good pasta, salad and pizza. I highly recommend this place for lunch, or dinner. Come hungry because the portions are big. The kids who work the counter are great, and the kitchen staff rock!

We ate on the patio on a warm evening, it was lovely. You have to order at the counter and then take a number to your seat. Happily the pizza dough is egg-free ( I have an allergy) so I could eat and eat and eat. Place has a good vibe!

Met some friends who went early and saved us a table last night. The line to order food and drinks was very long at 6:30 pm, so we enjoyed conversation until the wait was shorter. We ordered a Greek salad that had a lot of fresh loose leaf lettuce, olives, and feta cheese. It was huge, so two of us... More
