We were visiting the area and on our way to Ojai for the afternoon when we came upon this gem. We weren't really that hungry, but decided to stop anyway. It was a little chilly so we chose to take a table inside. The fresh squeezed lemonade was spectacular. We had a small special pizza to share and it was... More

There's something wonderful about Boccali's. It's like family and families love it. Not a bad bite to be had and the portions are generous. Desserts out of this world. Great wine list. Always a winner!

I eaten Italian food all over the US and this Italian food is better than Boston! It's as good as the best food I've had in Italy. I had the special with Italian sausage, with peppers and onions, over linguini - to die for. Tasted Lasagna - wow. Highly recommended. Definitely going back. Decor is laid back, not stuffy -...

Lasagne was fantastic but the show stopper was the strawberry shortcake! It's a definite shareable dessert you don't want to miss.

Great family friendly place with in/outdoor seating, space for a family and friends to spread out and even bring your pooch with you. A hearty meal of pasta and sauces and cheese. We had the veggie lasagne and pepperoni pizza - would definitely get it again. Our server was very friendly checking on us often to make sure we were... More

Boccali's was chosen as the site of my daughters wedding rehearsal dinner and it was a great experience. The large outdoor dinning area with many picnic tables under the trees, romantic lighting, great service, and large helpings of wonderful food made the evening very special. There was a hay bale maze and pumpkin patch for the little ones to play... More

This place was recommended by our Cousin as best Italian food in Ojai. This was comforting food and the eggplant parmesan was one of the best we had and the bruchetta was unique as served with a loaf of cheesy bread. We knew we would be taking part of our dinners home and ordered one strawberry shortcake to go as... More

Recommended to us by a 3rd generation local, we had to stop by for dinner. Amazing! Seat yourself and enjoy yummy homemade Italian food. The best dish we had was the spaghetti go and meatballs. Dishes were $15ish and are easily shared family style. I don't know if it is a regular dessert but the homemade strawberry shortcake was amazing!
