I gave this restaurant 4 / 5 because the food was really good. The "house" bread with dipping marinara (I guess is what it was) was not very good, but we had 2 glasses of wine that were good and the food was really good. We had the Sea Bass special and the Ravioli stuffed with pear and ricotta. Both... More

Always ask for the specials! Fresh seasonal ingredients and large portion size. The complimentary bread comes with homemade tomato dipping sauce YUM

Outstanding Northern Italian cuisine expertly prepared. Start with the Villa Capri salad: mixed greens with sliced pears, grapes, walnuts and Gorgonzola crumbles in a balsamic vinaigrette, delightful. Lasagna is top notch, and so are their pizzas. Dinner specials nightly may include the best pork osso bucco I've ever experienced. You will not be disappointed no matter what you order.

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.
