This place was recommended by our Cousin as best Italian food in Ojai. This was comforting food and the eggplant parmesan was one of the best we had and the bruchetta was unique as served with a loaf of cheesy bread.

Recommended to us by a 3rd generation local, we had to stop by for dinner. Amazing! Seat yourself and enjoy yummy homemade Italian food. The best dish we had was the spaghetti go and meatballs. Dishes were $15ish and are easily shared family style. I don't know if it is a regular dessert but the homemade strawberry shortcake was amazing!

Everyone in Ojai recommended Boccali's for dinner. My two daughters and I were in Ojai for the first time and we wanted a place that the locals would eat. Boccali's is the place for you. Oh yes, the food is great and the Strawberry Shortcake is to die for.

During our stay in Ojai, my son and I came here twice (lunch and dinner). Each time we felt warmly welcomed, and the patio is just a wonderful place to be. The food here is good and traditional. Expect fresh ingredients and an ambience that takes you back to a southern California that has all but vanished elsewhere. Here, it... More

Had my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here and it was a big hit. Everyone was from out of town and loved and casual outdoor setting. The food was excellent with lots of variety and the strawberry shortcake stole the show. The staff was excellent and made our evening memorable. Highly recommend for large or small groups.

This little pizza place was good but a little pricey. The wine was a bit high for such a small local place as well as the 4 slice pizza and caprese salad.

We had about 50 people dining on the lawn. The food was great offering gourmet Italian food. When the sun goes down and the yard lights come on, it becomes particularly romantic.

Great food- fast friendly service- a favorite of locals. I frequent the Oak View location- not the Country atmosphere as the one in Ojai but the food is just as good- friendly staff!!

Good location, good food, good ambiance. Locals go here all the time. It is a relaxing, inviting place. Get the strawberry shortcake in season.
