“A "Must Stop"”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We eat there every chance we get; I'd always wanted to try their pizza. It was OK, no great shakes. We did get two of the eggplant parmesan to take home & cook another time - yes, it's that good! And of course, the strawberry shortcake is always luscious!

“Pretty Good "Italian" Food”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

The pasta dishes are fair to middling. The pizzas are pretty good. The restaurant seems to cater to family dining and the American concept of Italian food. It's really not bad but I couldn't say its a good Italian restaurant. It's just a good family restaurant and there's nothing wrong with that. Plus, the service is generally excellent and they have a good beer menu.

Great food! Pizza is great, actually everything is! Awesome beer, they have Island Brewery blonde on tap. It's make in Carpinteria and is great! During strawberry season they make a killer strawberry shortcake. I don't do desserts but this is worth it!
A must if your in Ojai!

“Great Vegetarian Pizza and Pasta”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I found this to be one of the best restaurants in Ojai. They serve delicious vegetarian pizza with their homemade sauce and dough. And the price was very reasonable. They are located at the end of the road where I was staying which was just outside of the town. Tables are set up outside so one sits with all around fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. Highly recommended.

“they dont accept credit cards”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

as a person who travels with very little cash on hand and no checks since i cant stand writing checks i was dissapointed to learn they dont accept credit/debit cards. i had heard alot of great things about the place, they do have wine tasting on the lawn next to the restaurant which was very cute with lights strung through the trees. The food was delicious and the offer their own wines they have a vineyard out behind the restaurant which were very good also. The strawberry shortcake is homeade and to die for, you must save room for this. They do haunted hay rides and pumpkin picking in the fall. This place is a must visit during any season. i highly recommend it. it wasnt overly expensive and the portions are decent sized, there is mininal seating inside and alot on the pati which only have umbrellas so theres not much protection from inclement weather. Overall its a great place to bring the family to sit outside and enjoy the afternoon
