Run, don’t walk to Nocciola! But first make a reservation as they are popular. We had the most wonderful dinner here and would return a million times if we lived nearby. We chose the chef’s 5 course dinner and it was absolutely perfect. We loved...More

Great service, great food. What a wonderful gem. We stayed at Ojai Valley Inn and visited this restaurant twice. The food is so much better than the resort! The staff is friendly, the patio is relaxing and so pretty. Eat here!

The venue is gorgeous. Hard to beat that veranda when the weather is lovely. The dining room is also very pretty. Like any restaurant, some dishes will be superior to others. Our party enjoyed risotto, scallops, carrot ginger soup with crab, tartar, carpaccio and a...More

Limited menu but finely prepared and first class by any standard. The wine list is also limited but covers the spectrum of cost/quality. Service was excellent. probably best "fine dining" in Ojai.
