“A decent meal, but not spectacular...”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

We finally tried VC for the first time this past weekend. Owners & Staff were very friendly & welcoming. It was pretty crowded, so lots of people obviously enjoy dining here. We sat outside, & the atmosphere was very nice. Beautiful view, nice garden setting... Parts of the property did seem a bit aged, but I don't know if that's because of maintenance issues or if it's supposed to be "rustic".
The menu is very basic, traditional Italian, with an emphasis on seafood. We started with the calamari, which was decent. We've had better, but we've also had much, MUCH worse. It seemed fresh, but the rings were thicker, so they were a bit chewy (due to longer cooking time?). We then both chose pasta dishes, and they were very solid, well-executed meals. We recieved bread (free of charge & w/out asking), & we had the salad bar. Salad was a little disappointing, but... To me a salad bar is always a step down from a salad prepared by the kitchen.
The wine & beer selection was decent as well- we had a couple of Italian beers that were nice with our meal. Restrooms were very clean (always a good thing!), & again, our server, Juan, was fantastic!
Overall, it was a nice dinner, but I think that we were expecting something a little different. We might go back on a lazy afternoon for a drink & an app on the patio, but I doubt that we will ever return because we are "craving" their food. Nothing spectacular, but a good, basic meal.

“Trust the Chef”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The special was local redfish and shrimp. It was a very good dish - well prepared and a good value. The setting on Clear Lake is also very nice.

“The Best”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Villa Capri was the site of our wedding 25 years ago, so we went back for ourr anniversary. We weren't disappointed. We got first class treatment by the owners and wait staff. A very memorable experience and excellent food at a very reasonable price. We won't be waiting 25 years to go back.

“Great food & great owners”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Villa Capri is the slightly up market version of Frenchies which is at Nasa Parkway & Bay Area Blvd. They are the same owners the same family atmosphere, the same wise cracks, and the same excellent Italian food.

Villa Capri terrace is a great place to chill out by Clear Lake with a glass or three of special Barolo that Sandro only keeps for his special clients.
