A Slice of Tuscany in Our Own Backyard – The Stonehaus, Westlake Village

capsule times;”>I’ve toured Tuscany in the company of a foodie and dined on unbelievable meals.  The terrain and the way the buildings are constructed, diagnosis rustic stone edifices that look as if they were born of the landscape, all added to the experience. The Stonehaus which sits at the western edge of the 17 acre Westlake Inn property not only reminds me of my sojourn, it puts the experience within driving distance.

The salads are fresh, the panini tasty and the gelato dolce.  It is kid and pet friendly with a small vineyard and sand covered playing field for the Italian pastime of Bocce.  Billed primarily as a breakfast/lunch eatery with light fare, it’s a great place for a relaxed evening of dining or a leisurely glass of wine or cup coffee.  Pizzas are cooked outside in a brick oven Thursday through Sunday up until 6:30pm.  The wine bar offers a large variety and the food is reasonably priced, though if one imbibes it can drive up the tab.

There is a waterfall to sit by, plenty of picnic tables and a fireplace.  If you sit outside and are extra chilled borrow a throw.  They have plenty folded in the wooden cart near the entrance.  There is also seating inside and dining in the wine tasting room which can be rented for private events.

The Stonehaus opened in October 2012.  Now over a year old, it is sure to be a fixture in our community for some time to come.

I think they’ve done a good job of accommodating the yuppies while maintaining a small town “lodge” vibe. That Inn complex is one of the last original landmarks in Westlake. May it live long and prosper. Amen.
