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.
