My husband and I were in the San Diego area for business about two weeks ago, and several residents we met with for work highly recommended this place for dinner. We were lucky to have listened and wise to follow their advice - delicious food and cozy atmosphere in a family-run Italian bistro. I'm feeling relaxed (and full!) just remembering... More

As a business traveler who often dines alone, I am first cognizant of how I am treated (bad location, rush to free up the table, etc.). This was not not the case at Villa Capri. They allowed me to choose my table and the service was at the pace I requested. The ambiance was great (for a strip mall restaurant),... More

We were doing business in the shopping center where this restaurant is located around lunch time and we were looking for a place to eat, so we gave this place a try and we were not disappointed. The food was very good, well prepared and quite tasty. This restaurant was very busy at lunch time and after eating there I... More

Our hotel recommended the Villa Capri as a local favorite. I can see why! Our dinner was excellent (everything on the menu is excellent) and the desserts were yummy! The bread pudding was my husband's favorite and I had the best creme brulee I have tasted in a very long time. Service was great and prices were very good for... More

This restaurant is in a strip mall so we did not at first glance realize how high quality it would be. The ambiance was great and both meals were delicious. The service was responsive but not rushed. The prices were reasonable for a place of this quality. Overall very impressed!

we were meeting some friends here and we got there 15 minutes before our reservation. They seated us immediately and did not hassle us about the others not being there yet. We had the insalate verde (spinach, sundried tomatoes, gorgonzola) - very good. we had chicken marsala and cannelloni and both were good.

If you want authentic good quality Italian food you should not be disappointed at Villa Capri. We have eaten here several times and have had thoroughly enjoyable meals each time. This last visit we had a delicious soup followed by very tasty fusilli and ravioli followed by a wonderful Pannacotta. Good house wines and attentive service made for a great... More

We have been going to this restaurant for several years and we feel it is the best in the area. The wine selection is excellent and the food is consistently good. We used to have a home in Italy, so we know good Italian food when we find it, and this is a genuine find!
