I got take out from La Valle, when staying nearby at the Ojai Valley Resort & Spa. At first, I thought the concept pretty odd - Mexican AND Italian food? The menu reads like a mashup of two cultures. But - hey - these are my two favorite types of food, so it could either be really great or really confusing. It turned out to be the former. I called ahead to find out if the tortillas (homemade) were gluten free - the person who answered the phone was friendly and went to ask - returning to confirm that they were. Yea! They also have gluten free pasta for the Italian dishes.
I ordered a simple plate of enchiladas, with rice and beans.
The restaurant is located toward the end of town, next to a spa, with an outdoor patio and indoor dining space. The staff was extremely friendly. My food cost $9 total!! This is a total bargain in Ojai. Everything was excellent, from the rice to the black beans held in a fried homemade corn tortilla, to the delicious enchiladas in green sauce. One of the most authentic and truly Mexican meals I've had outside of Mexico.
Yum, yum and worth a stop.
