Dinner at Villa Capri

Dined at Villa Capri on an early Sunday evening. We found the restaurant to be delightful. Tucked back in a shopping center next to the Ace Hardware it was more than it appeared to be. The atmosphere was warming and casual with a real Itialian feel. The service was good and the food even better... read more

Dish was dirty. Asked the food server if we could have pasta instead of mashed potatoes and was told we would have to give up our vegetables also to get pasta. One of our party had a scallops & shrimp pasta dish with vodka sauce. It had exactly 2 shrimp and the sauce was just fishy tasting. Despite having a... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path (in a Von's shopping center), but it's well worth the search. We enjoyed delicious salads and pasta dishes. The entire family enjoyed the meal. The waiter was very nice, and the background music was really good. We will definitely come back next time we're in Del Mar.

we were on vacation from East Coast. Went there Dec 26th-last night. It was busy and approx. 25 minutes wait. The table we got was next to fireplace and was a welcome, since it was a cold night at San Diego. There was water already in our glasses and no wine glass kept on the table. The waiter came and...

I travel to this area on business, and have eaten here many times. The menu is flavorful and has a nice variety, and the location is family run. The staff is knowledgeable and can suggest a nice paring of wines with your meal. They occasionally host events such as winemaker dinners, which are entertaining and enjoyable.

As the title suggests, we visit this place for the bread pudding. The pasta is average and the portion is on the large size. I would prefer to leave some room for desert, bread pudding, ofcourse. The restaurant is in a neighborhood shopping center with Vons, Ace Hardware, etc. The decor is very traditional and dark with ceiling fan! Service... More

We visited Villa Capri on 08/07/2014. Up side . . . My husband had the Penne alla Norcia which was penne with Italian sausage, mushrooms, drizzled with truffle oil in a light cream sauce. I tried the Fusilli al Pesto con Zucchini, corkscrew pasta served with homemade creamy pesto sauce and zucchini topped with sundried tomatoes. Both dishes were delicious.... More
