“Really good pizza and sandwiches! Again local well known Ojai family owned. I prefer ordering delivery or pick-up. The pizza is great, the place not so much. Heaven help you if its empty and you want a large booth, they are always off limits to small parties. Can order on line and get custom pizzas and extras of ingredients. ”
