Ventura County isn't known as a gastronomic destination, but with more restaurants like Bistro 13 it certainly could be.

Though located at the eastern edge of Camarillo beneath the Conejo Grade in a shopping center the interior ambiance is cozy. Owner Giovanni Tromba - acting as host & bartender - is charming and accommodating.

The food was delightful. We arranged a special menu that included the Burrata Beet Salad, the Butternut Squash Ravioli, a Halibut dish & a Chicken dish finished with sorbet & gelato. None of us left food on our plates. Every dish was yummy.

We will certainly return & recommend it.

Thank Bellauno

I can't think of a restaurant in the whole county that has a better menu, better tasting food or better service.

It is a consistantly perfect place to eat.

We were going to the independent movie house in Camarillo and decided to try Bistro 13 for the first time. While it's in a strip mall, the place is nicely decorated, the food very good, and the staff extremely helpful. I had the special fish, halibut, and it was quite good and served very hot. My husband had a chicken dish, also served piping hot directly from the kitchen, which we could see from our table. I am sure we will be back as we enjoy the movies close by. I recommend Bistro 13, which also has a nice bar area.
