I usually stop here once a year when visiting San Diego and am never disappointed. My favorite is the Flat bread with pear, Gorgonzola and Balsamic vinegar. I've also had their meatballs in Marina sauce and the carpaccio - all excellent and around 5:00 for Happy Hour which runs from 4-7:00.

This is my "go to" restaurant for any time we say, "Where should we go?" The owner is always there and oversees everything. There's a little bar where the Poway dads go after golf or the moms meet for a glass of wine. Only 2 or 3 booths but a fair amount of tables. It's become more and more popular... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and have determined that pasta is not what they do best. I think they are more geared toward the chicken, veal, beef dinners and not just pasta. I did have a really great salad there once, but if youre looking for pasta this shouldn't be your first choice.

Our party of four dined at Villa Capri on a Wednesday night, The place was very busy, but we had a reservation and were seated without delay. We split salads (Caesar and Panzanella), which were easily large enough to serve two people. We also ordered the Warm Burrata appetizer which gave the four of us each a nice taste. The... More

Don't be fooled by the strip mall this is in. I skipped the pasta and had an excellent salad with extremely fresh ingredients. The wine selection was also unique and good.

Villa Capri sits incongruously in a Poway strip mall, but once inside the ambiance is charming. The service is attentive and accommodating, plenty of wine choices to pair well with the food, and the price is great. They always have a couple of gluten free pasta options. I enjoy the Burrata Con Spinaci and the Gamberoni alla Toscana antipasti, the... More

Located in a nondescript strip mall, this restaurant is a fabulous find. We have been here many times, and have also attended several of their monthly wine and food paired dinners. We have never had a bad experience. Food here is excellent and the service is friendly and professional.. I especially like their osso bucco and their seafood pastas.It is... More

The curb appeal is lacking due to the outdoor seating area being enclosed by black shade screens. But you'll find that this unassuming small restaurant tucked in a shopping center offers a fine dining experience. The servers are efficient, polite, accommodating, and a bit formal which is very appealing. The items we've sampled - the fresh, warm, crusty bread, the... More
