Each time my wife and I got to Ojai, we look forward to eating at Osteria Monte Grappe. Food is fantastic and even though you eat on a patio, should you choose, you hardly notice that you are on the periphery of a strip mall, albeit Ojai style. One note: if you order a martini, they add a $2 charge... More

I went on a romantic date and it was perfect for us. Nice ambiance and great service. The foods was super fresh and had depth in the flavors. I recommend the thin pasta with the pork sausage sauce. Mind blown. We had 2 glasses of wine, bruschetta, shared salad, 2 entrees, and a dessert for $100 with tip. A splurge... More

The salads were enjoyable, home-made pasta amazing and the local wines were very nice. Eat on the back patio as it is quiet, the main dining room is noisy.

We stayed in Ojai on the last night of our trip from Seattle to Los Angeles and wanted somewhere close enough to LAX without having to endure the nightmare of LA. This restaurant was about 2 minutes from where we were staying and on a warm evening was the perfect place for an al fresco dinner. Good choice of dishes... More

We came into Ojai pretty late and got a table eventhough the had stopped serving. The waiter was very friendly and the food was served quick but still well prepared. We had pizza and pasta - nothing to complain about there. 👍

I put this restaurant firmly in my Don't Overthink It category. Walk in, order some delicious seasonal pasta dishes, eat and enjoy. Con vongole was memorable, that beef and prosciutto ravioli was tasty, caprese was great... Wish we were hungrier to dig deeper in the menu. Can't comment on the wine list but their cocktail game could be better.

What a wonderful adventure and find. We stumbled upon this place and had the best time ever! Such friendly and attentive staff. I had the papardelle with beef-how yummy, my daughter had the amazing salmon dish-to die for! What a great end to a wonderful day!

We came here for dinner with friends. We live out of town and had a great experience. We set outside in the patio, our server was very attentive which is always a plus! The caprese salad and the risotto were delicious! The ravioli was alright but we couldn't give less than 5 stars for our experience. They have a great... More

We loved the casual atmosphere combined with really delicious, local and subtle cuisine. Superb thin-crust pizza with unusual ingredients. Great both at lunch and dinner.
