We have been going to Villa Capri in Poway for over a year now and it has never disappointed. Food is always top notch and the service we have had is excellent. We are there most often on a Friday or Saturday night and go for the specials The often have a pork or veal Osso Buco that is fantastic... More

The place is located inside a mall in Poway, right next to Target. I would categorize it as a local restaurant. Being in the mall, parking is very easy and convenient. I visited on Sunday dinner, to my surprise, it was pretty crowded. The food is just over par. They would have some room to improve their pizza dough and... More

The food we had tonight was excellent as was the service. I highly recommend this restaurant. We have eaten at Villa Capri in 2 locations and both warrant high marks.

Villa Capri is one of the best real Italian restaurants we have ever been! We had the lamb shank Osso bucco and it is the best we have ever had. We will go back many times.

Love this place. Very friendly staff who remember your name. Food is great! You can go casual or fancy. Atmosphere is relaxed and never hurried. Highly recommended.

What a hidden gem! Located in a strip mall, but when you step inside it is romantic, modern, and sophisticated. And that is just the decor. The food was very reasonably priced, and the exceeded expectation. Every dish at our table was hot and fresh, with exceptional flavor; one of my friends ordered even the simplest of dishes, pasta with... More

Having not been to Villa Capri in awhile, my husband and I had a late lunch there recently and were very disappointed. The service was okay but the food was not. We each ordered a Salsiccia Pannini which was all bread with very little content. After a couple bites we opened our sandwiches to find each contained a total of... More

The restaurant is hidden in a corner of a large shopping center but stepping thru the patio brings you into a relaxing casual environment. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food has been exceptional with fresh ingredients each time we have visited. The calamari is light and a superb starter with a glass of wine. We have visited several... More

We come here often since we don't live too far away and it is a little gem! So cozy, very attentive and friendly staff, and the food....awesome! They will accommodate any food requests if they have the ingredients on hand. They've even made dishes for us that aren't on the menu. The pizzas are delicious, huge, and served piping hot.... More
