“Best Italian place in camarillo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

I go here about 4 Times a year and I love their calamari. Their seafood pasta is always good too. The servers are great. .. can't say anything bad about this restaurant except parking is a problem on weekdays so go there early

“Great Place to Eat in Camarillo.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

From the pink chowder to the lobster ravioli and the seafood cioppino, Bistro 13 serves up great food in a great atmosphere. Family friendly with half portion pastas available for the kids. Also great for couples and friends wanting to go out and have a great meal. The owner and staff are very warm and welcoming.

“A hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My husband and I were staying at the Courtyard Hotel in Camarillo. I had given an all day seminar and my husband wanted to take me out to dinner as a special treat. This restaurant is just a short walk from the hotel. When we walked in, we found it to be cozy and friendly. My husband had a seafood pasta and I had the halibut special. They were both delicious! We would certainly return the next time we are in Camarillo.

“Good service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were dining at Bistro 13 with friends who do not eat chicken. One of the entrees was chicken. They asked the owner to substitute pork for the chicken which was done. Their mushroom risotto is excellent. This is a restaurant to which we will return again and again.

“Marvelous find in Camarillo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We were invited by friends to a wine tasting at Bistro 13, and ended up having a memorable meal as well. If you attend a wine tasting, you'll have access to wines that aren't on their usual wine list. The staff is excellent, and the food far beyond our wildest expectations. The food is fresh and clearly made with only first class ingredients. Add of the dishes we've tried were excellent, so I can't recommend one over another.

It's easily accessible to the 101 freeway at Santa Rosa Road, so when we travel to the area for shopping, this is our lunch or dinner stop. The restaurant isn't large (but that cozy atmosphere adds to the ambiance), so reservations are a good idea, especially on weekends.
