We had heard about this place from the locals. Since we were meeting friends later in the evening we ordered pizza to go and were very happy with the pizza, but thought it was a little pricey for the size.

Staying nearby, and Papa Lennon's was suggested. Pepperoni pizza was fine. Angel hair pomodoro was so watery and oily that after draining the plate and showing it to the server, I asked for a refund. Try the pizza, that was fine.

Went here with my mother in law for a late dinner. Ordered BBQ chicken pizza and foccacia bread with sangrias. Service friendly. Ordered at counter. Got our food super fast. It was delicious! Loved the outdoor dining area, nice atmosphere at night. I would definitely eat here again!

Caprese salad good but needed more dressing or flavor on top not on plate. The fêttaccine was a... More

Causing a revolution in Ojai! Always a fun time. Great Panini's, salads, and Pizzas. Enjoy the neighborhood feel. Consistently good. Friendly staff. Always seem to run into someone I know.

Had a very nice lunch at Papa Lennon's. No frills setup, you order at the service bar, take your condiments, napkins, place settings, etc. to your table yourself, and wait for your order to be delivered. Very friendly staff. We had 2 of the Panini sandwiches - they were excellent. Exactly as ordered, everything fresh. The outdoor patio is a... More

Was skeptical to try Papa Lennon's when we were told you order at the counter and your food is brought to you. Wrong to be skeptical! The food is amazing and fresh and organic. Gluten free options abound. The wine list was perfect and the outdoor setting with twinkle lights was adorable. Great place!!

Papa Lennon's catered two of the meals during my stay at the Lavender Inn. Both meals were gourmet quality and met my diatary requirements. I was happy and satisfied.

Nice atmosphere on the patio, darling little place. We got a special veggie pizza with pesto sauce. It was excellent. I try Chinese chicken salads whenever I can and this one is tops. We split it with the pizza but it really could be a full meal for two. Best won tons, I meant to ask if they make them... More
