Springtime means Strawberry Shortcake at Boccali's in Ojai!
Every time we come to Ojai - we look forward to the Strawberry Shortcake at Boccali's. The berries are sweet and the shortcake has enough body to hold up to the berry juice. It's all topped off with a mound of whipped cream. ( out of a can ) Think I detect some carmel or sugar topping to the short cake. Don't want to dissect this too much - it's fun to eat/share.
Otherwise, Boccali's is a casual old school Italian restaurant . ( Red sauce/checkered oil cloths )
Our pizza had a ton of cheese - the pesto struggled to make its presence known. And the antipasto platter was a good assortment of the usual suspects. Lots of families come and it's quite lively.
Located near a grove of orange trees so it's so very fragrant this time of year.

This place is always on our seasonal list too. The shortcake comes out hot and the whole thing together is a blended treat of flavors and textures. We has some okay pasta there too. The Oxnard/Ventura strawberry fields are producing local treats now and selling them in their little field side stands for great eating.
