When we travel from the Los Angeles area to Solvang, we usually stop at Ojai. And on our most recent visit, we discovered this delightful Italian restaurant in the main shopping area. We had lunch here consisting of vegetable soup, and a chicken sandwich and which was accompanied by salad. Each of the components of this meal was delicious. We... More

Came in on a Friday night without reservations but luckily was able to get a seat for two in 15 minutes. Place closes early at 9:30pm. Large glass of wine (full glass) is a good deal. Had the prosciutto and melon with mozzarella for a starter to share. For dinner my friend had the beef/prosciutto/mixed cheese ravioli, and I had... More

Four of us had dinner there last evening (10/29/16) and came away very disappointed. We had read a number of reviews that indicate a rather mixed experience, but some friends had dined there before and enjoyed their evening, so we thought we'd give it a try. " with the staff, pleasant enough initially but with no real enthusiasm about the... More

My wife and I are visiting Ohio to celebrate our anniversary. We visited this restaurant because of its good reviews, and the food was very good. My wife had spaghetti squash and I had the seafood pasta made with fresh pasta. Both were well prepared. The waitstaff however seem to be poorly trained. It took over five minutes for anybody...

Our dining party was 20 people. The menu was varied of a rustic Northern Italian flare, seafood with a fusion of local ingredients. We sampled each other's dishes. My dessert of Creme Brulee met all my expectations.

We used to enjoy lunch at OMG but they opted to close at lunch time to focus on dinner. Now they are serving lunch again so we decided to return. What a disappointment! The food was barely warm, poorly prepared and other than the clams, generally bad. The "bartender" did not know what a martini was nor how it was... More

We are vegetarian and this was a good choice. We had the squash ravioli and one of their flat breads. Both were excellent. The bread they served was extremely tasty and tasted home made.

3 colleagues and I in Ojai on business came here on a recommendation at the end of a long day. And it was wonderful. Our waiter Daniel was fun and friendly and the pastas and appetizers we shared were all very enjoyable. A hat tip to whomever invented the caprifornia... Delightful place. Eat in the back patio if you can.... More
