We never stop in Ojai without a trip to Boccali's. Another great experience! The frest from the garden tomato is something we wait for all year. How they get them that red and flavorful is amazing. I have never splurged for the strawberry shortcake so on this trip we asked for one dessert and three spoons. The cake was moist,... More

Went with a group of about 20 people. I was amazed at how good the service was. The waiters got everyone's order correct, the service was quick and they were very attentive. My husband loved the pizza. I had Raviolis. They were average. Very clean and fun place to eat!

We had fond memories from having eaten here eight or 10 years ago. Unfortunately the most recent experience didn't match the first time. The service was slow, the salad was extremely overdressed, the pizza was okay but not amazing, The shortcake on the strawberry shortcake dessert was way too salty.

This homey and frankly homely little restaurant serves the best pizza in Ventura County. And in the summer, sit outside and enjoy the "pink moment," when the setting sun turns the Sespes a beautiful pink.

Gave Boccali's a try during our most recent visit. Everyone was very friendly and food was good. Nice large outdoor patio.

My family went here for dinner & it was delicious! We ordered the caprese salad. They use tomatoes that they grow behind the restaurant. It was so good! Then we ordered a pepperoni & meatball pizza. So good! We ordered meatballs in sauce for my son who is a little picky. He loved them! The meatballs are homemade and the... More

Highly recommended. Really large servings for affordable prices. But be warned that they are cash-only; as out-of-towners we had no idea -- there were zero posted signs.

We enjoyed a beautiful view of the mountains at a little picnic table on the patio. The spinach lasagne was good, as was the garlic bread, but the chocolate gelato was outstanding!

boccalis is by far the best Italian food in California... heck, in the world! I had the pepperoni olive pizza, even though it is not on the menu, the heartwarming waiting staff served it to me without a problem! no scoffing or rude remarks like I've seen in the past at different restraunts. the restraunt is very clean and sanitary!...
