My wife and I are visiting Ohio to celebrate our anniversary. We visited this restaurant because of its good reviews, and the food was very good. My wife had spaghetti squash and I had the seafood pasta made with fresh pasta. Both were well prepared. The waitstaff however seem to be poorly trained. It took over five minutes for anybody...

Our dining party was 20 people. The menu was varied of a rustic Northern Italian flare, seafood with a fusion of local ingredients. We sampled each other's dishes. My dessert of Creme Brulee met all my expectations.

We used to enjoy lunch at OMG but they opted to close at lunch time to focus on dinner. Now they are serving lunch again so we decided to return. What a disappointment! The food was barely warm, poorly prepared and other than the clams, generally bad. The "bartender" did not know what a martini was nor how it was... More

We are vegetarian and this was a good choice. We had the squash ravioli and one of their flat breads. Both were excellent. The bread they served was extremely tasty and tasted home made.

3 colleagues and I in Ojai on business came here on a recommendation at the end of a long day. And it was wonderful. Our waiter Daniel was fun and friendly and the pastas and appetizers we shared were all very enjoyable. A hat tip to whomever invented the caprifornia... Delightful place. Eat in the back patio if you can.... More

Lunch in downtown Ojai within the Arcade. Good lunch menu. Ordered Brischetta, oysters and a pasta with a good Italian Chianti. All good. Very fresh bruschetta material. Small quibble is that they should have separated the muscle from the oyster before serving (Kumimoto). Only 1 waiter for the lunch which meant slow but we were in no rush. Overall a... More

We ate here during our stay in Ojai. Our server was wonderful!! Her recommendations were spot on. We ordered a pasta with butternut squash and the lamb pasta. Both were delicious!! I never like lamb and this lamb tasted fresh without a gamey smell or taste. We may even go back for lunch tomorrow to try to salmon with pistachios!... More
