Description: For more than ninety years, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa has evolved with the times but throughout it all, The Inn has maintained a connection to its locality – especially through its food. Olivella represents the epitome of this sense of place. A restaurant in Ojai Valley with refined simplicity; showcasing the best each season has to offer, suitable for any occasion. Olivella’s valley-to-table culinary program is supported by the local Ojai valleys, ranches, orchards, farms and ocean waters. We embrace the seasonal whims of the region, focusing on the bounty of year-round produce provided by the California Central Coast. Chef Andrea Rodella is proud to present a dining experience featuring the best ingredients of California with dishes and techniques inspired by his Italian heritage.

This place is very warm, relaxing, beautiful. We dined al fresco, so I was a little bit chilly. I asked them to turn the heat lamp on and they promptly accommodated. The food was fantastic, presented beautifully, My husband had a filet of beef and I had the seafood special--both cooked exactly as ordered. Wine selection was not huge but adequate with selections from the region and outside California. Our waitress was sweet and provided excellent service. We would recommend.

Food was delicious and the wine selection was great! As for a table near the fireplace as that makes it extra romantic.

Great food with an emphasis on local produce. Thoughtful service. Try to get a seat on the balcony for a beautiful view of the mountains and countryside.

This is an elegant restaurant at the Ojain Valley Inn and Spa. There is a casual dining restaurant elsewhere. What really made the visit special was Heidi, our waitress, who was son informative, knowledgeable and helpful about the food and wine that she really enhanced our experience. All staff was extremely professional and helpful. We really loved our food, we both had fish (my wife had red snapper, I had halibut), the dishes were expertly prepared and wonderful. We will definitely go back.

We loved sitting out on the terrace, amazing view, tasty food, and wonderful staff. The best part was the great group photo one of the staff took of us. Great knowledge and honest rec's of the menu.
