Set at the base of some hills, on the outskirts of mystical Ojai, this place is a good choice for some hearty pizza. We ate bruschetta, a sausage, garlic, mushroom, green chile (huge slabs of green chile covered the entire pizza) pizza, and a delectable shortcake with tons of fresh red strawberries. Service was attentive, but not intrusive or overbearing. The flavors were all really fresh. Pretty standard prices, and large portions. I would come back here.

You just don't find this ambiance anymore anywhere. Indoor-outdoor, picnic tables, estate wines, down-home-made Italian food, families with kids everywhere, happy helpful staff, positioned almost in the fields where the food and drink and produced.

This humble, family-run Italian restaurant reminded me of old-fashioned family-style Italian meals from my childhood in an Italian neighborhood. Portions are huge and they do not complain if you want to share or take the rest home -- they expect it!

I will come back many times.

Not a gourmet place but very popular for pizza and italian dishes served in a casual country setting. It has a European feel because of being on the road and out of town. Noted for their home grown strawberry shortcake in season.

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!

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.
