I ordered the yummy lasagna. The service was great and Starlight was very hospitable. Almost missed the Strawberry Shortcake until Starlight explained it is what they are known for... YUM! They also gave me great advice on where to visit during my stay.

Boccali's is always hopping and usually packed--unusual since it's in the rural east end of Ojai and the food is old fashioned Italian. Pasta is rarely al dente, pizza crust is thick--but the wines are good and the events (wine tastings, parties, etc.) keep the...More

Want some good home cooked Italian? This is the place. I wanted to eat here everyday I was in Ojai. The store front is really cool too. Reminds me a of an old restaurant you see off of Route 66 back in the day.

This is an interesting place outside of Ojai. It has a very rustic farm house feel. Also a very large patio, the patio would be very sunny in the afternoon. We went early, Saturday around 4 after a hike. When we left a little after...More
