                      Hello and welcome to Osteria Monte Grappa. We would like to introduce ourselves and share with you what makes “OMG” so unique...

     In 1988 I helped my brother Pietro open his restaurant Pane e Vino in Montecito. In 1991 We opened & I managed our Pane e Vino in San Francisco and by the year 2001 I was back in Montecito again managing our family’s Via Vai restaurant. We are proud to say all of these restaurants are still in the family and thriving today. It was in Montecito were my wife, Tammy and I, first met and worked toghether. A few years later we started a family of our own, and in October of 2009, we moved our, then young, family to Ojai. This is when we opened Osteria Monte Grappa toghether. Tammy brought new & creative ideas to our classic cusine making O.M.G. what it is today. We have been so fortunate to maintain a friendly local staff throughout the years. We have watched kids grow into adults and adults grow into families.

     Our roots come from Northern Veneto, at the foothills of the Dolomites. This is where we get our inspiration to create an ever-changing menu, using what is growing seasonally in our area.

    We have adapted our menu to use products grown locally in the beautiful Ojai Valley! This is why we do not necessarily identify with “Italian Cusine,” as much as our vision of “Ojai Cusine.”

      You may visit at different times of the year to find a new and varied menu from the last time you were here. We are in daily contact with local farmers like Robert “BD” Dautch & Johnny Fonteyn that grow our produce, and local fishermen Eric Hodge for our fresh ocean catch. We hand pick all of our products, Mary’s chicken and duck from the central valley, local Monarch farm duck eggs, Jolly Oyster’s responsibly farmed Baja California clams and oysters, and Ocean Pride provides us with wild spot prawns fresh from the Santa Barbara Channel when in season. We pair these ingredients with some of our favorite imported products and our house made pasta and sauces

     It is our mission to create an approachable, unique and healthy environment for you to come and enjoy. Welcome again to Osteria Monte Grappa!

     Tammy and Stefano Bernardi
