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.
