Nothing to write home about, but rather pleasant atmosphere and good service. Never came across anything innovative. The standard dishes are standard.

Enjoyed the Villa Capri salad, pears,candied walnuts and a nice mix of greens but too much for one so share this. Had Elena penne w salmon and penne villa Capri. Both were hot to the table with very competent service. I think this was a nice find and would recommend

The alcohol here is fair to middling, but the people and food are vile. Not worth the money when there are much better Italia fare in San Diego.

It's nice to find a small restaurant that serves good Italian food. I ordered Grilled chicken with arugula salad and it was a very tasty and filling meal. My dinner companions orderd chicken Parmesan, Osso buco & chicken in butter sauce and everyone enjoyed their meal. I guess this is a hidden gem in the area since I saw a... More

Food is served with great respect. Generous portions, lots of tasty sauce. Reservations are available, even for a party of two. Their salads are great and their fishes and pastas are very reliable to order. Nice choice of wine and fair prices. Grammy Sharon

Villa Capri is located at the Target Store strip mall - next to the Coldstone Ice Cream Shop. Excellent selection of Italian dishes, with an abundance of daily specials. Great service, comfortable seating, and a charming manager who takes great care to please his guests. Highly recommend.

While tucked away in a strip mall, this place is a very good value. Quality very good as is the service. Portion sizes are just right and along with pricing make this a very good value. Bar is well stocked as is wine list and moderately priced. While not near the tourist attractions, a good stop along I-15

We are regulars here at Villa Capri! My favorite is the Salmone al Pepe Rosa!! I order it every time I go there. Also their chocolate mousse was awesome!!! It's nice to have a good Italian restaurant that we can go to here in Poway.
