I generally have the salads there and the Beatnik salad is awesome with chicken. Pizzas I have only had the gluten free and soy cheese - which was ok - but probably would be amazing with real crust and cheese. :-)

in searching for a pizza one night in ojai i discovered i had 3 choices so stopped by this place for my attempt. the pizza was a cut above average but not what i regard as a great pizza. a bit thicker than i would like. i realize craft brews are the trend but unfortunately that is the only kind...

I ate here with a group from a weekend retreat. We pre-ordered and the food was ready for us when we arrived. The food looked gourmet. Had great flavor and the outdoor seating was relaxing.

The food is fantastic, I love the casual atmosphere, and the staff are always incredibly friendly. (only drawback: I wish they had more indoor dining)

Eat outside or indoors and enjoy the wonderful pizza, pastas, salads and soups. Their portions are large and ready to be shared along with their ample sized pizzas. Great food at great prices. Perfect for family night out!

After having a bad experience at a more expensive Italian restaurant in Ojai, my husband and I decided to try Papa Lennon's before heading home and we are very glad we did. The place has comfortable indoor seating but also a lovely patio outside that we decided to take advantage of as it was a sunny day. The guy taking... More

Yumm-a-licious! I don't think you can go wrong with any selection from the menu. I've heard that the Beet Salad cannot be beat! However, for my first visit I had the Mediterranean Pizza. I rarely eat pizza because of the post-pizza-blues. But this was a fresh alternative loaded with roasted veggies just as described on the menu and a thin... More

Very casual Italian fast food. You order your food in the restaurant then look for a table on the patio. The patio is rather messy and you have to clean up your own dishes. The food was average with pizza being the most popular dish. and was only average.

Papa Lennon's on West El Roblar is a good restaurant with awesome pizza and it has a good ambiance. Recommended. More organic choices would be better.
