Villa Capri Ristorante
We are a local favorite where everyone comes to relax and enjoy without the dishes to do afterward. Our cozy fireplace and friendly staff will make you feel just at home.
We continue to have wonderful dining experiences here. The staff are so nice and friendly that they make me feel almost like family. The food is very authentic and we have not been disappointed with any of our choices.
Food is always delicious here. Great outdoor seating. Service was very slow, waited a long time for our food and then forever for our check. Probably because no one wants to work anymore and they are shorthanded. Just a head's up, be sure you have extra time when you visit this restaurant.
Four of us dined and shared starters, all were perfectly prepared. Fried calamari with a delicious dipping sauce, the Roman artichokes (always a fave), and a simple Margharita pizza that was as good as any in Italy. Perfect crust, perfectly cooked and the fresh tomatoes on top were a bright spot.
Lovely pear salad before the mains, including Penne with sausage, chicken parm, chicken marsala and branzino (which was actually mahi-mahi - not sure why?) Either way, everything was excellent and the portions are SO generous, we all took home leftovers to enjoy later. Decent wine list by the glass, EXCELLENT service by our waiter and busboy. We never had to wait for anything and the timing of our courses was done nicely.
Great service from Leticia. Food was excellent and the pizza was a great appetizer to share. Grazie!
Great dinner - my only complaint was that
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Love the new live Italian music 🎶
We have been going to Villa Capri with our friends and other friends and family for sometime now. Lately, the food takes for ever. Our server tried to tell us that this is the case because the food is made from scratch but in the past we did not have the same problem. The food overall was tasty and the ambience good. But waiting for your meal for over 90 minutes is not cool.
As always, about the very best dining experience you will ever enjoy. Our party of 6 raved about every dish that was served and you will never be disappointed with any appetizer or entree you decide to order. Karen, our server, made the evening even that much more enjoyable.
Food and service were excellent. Special entree request was accepted and prepared perfectly. Complimentary birthday dessert was a nice touch. Staff was attentive. We will return frequently.
I absolutely love this place!!! Our Server was Karen and she is fabulous. She made great suggestions for both food and wine. We had the Baked Ziti & the Seafood special. Everything was fresh & delicious. She made us promise to save room for dessert which was incredible. The food & service here rival that of more expensive, ritzy places. The portions & prices cannot be beat. This will be my new favorite restaurant.
(Ps, Apparently if you follow the restaurant on Facebook & Instagram you can get special insider deals from time to time.)
The menu was limited and did not offer the items I chose the restaurant for.
Love this restaurant, it’s our favorite Italian in San Diego!
Seriously folks, if you are looking for a true Italian Foodie experience you need to consider dining at Villa Capri in Carmel Valley! The food is outstanding, patio dining is a special treat especially on Tuesday nights when they have live Italian Opera singers. If you are looking to "tie a bow" on this experience please make sure to ask for Letizia (sp?) you will have the best table-side customer service!
We love this restaurant. When we travel to the Coast, this place is always on our list. Food is fantastic. Brian is an amazing server. The desserts are especially good. The owner is very nice and super professional. We will be back.
Food was excellent but the poor service took away from the experience. The restaurant seemed short staffed.
Excellent food. Comfortable interior. Good service.
Ambiance and food were amazing! Unfortunately, they don’t have enough staff.
Everything about dinner was fantastic. Great service and great meal. Had the wild boar fettuccine and would highly recommend.
Excellent service. The Pollo Parmigiana was amazing.
Artichoke appetizer was amazing as was the chicken parmigiana and the gluten free raviolis. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. Very friendly. Lemoncello was a delicious gluten free desert. We will definitely come back!
The hostess was great . We shared the Antipasto and a chopped Romaine salad . My wife had cannelloni I had Ravioli. Sherbet for dessert , homemade.
Our second time this summer. Good is excellent. We ate outside and that was very nice. We are from the desert but it t seems like locals love the restaurant. We will be back when B we are in the area.
Wonderful staff, authentic food. Great service, with a smile and a laugh.
Great restaurant if you care about food and service
Too many great choices on menu. First time there. Will be back to try dishes on menu
Pizzas looked good so next time , a pizza
Enjoyable and hood food for the price point.
This restaurant was outstanding in every way. This was our first time here. Food and service were superb. The neighborhood location was fantastic. A definite place to come back to.
I’m sorry we didn’t try sooner, always intended to but never did til tonight
Truly a hidden gem in San Diego North County. Lived in Carlsbad for 5 years and wish we had of found this sooner! The service, food and value are 5 stars!!!! We will definitely go back when visiting this area.
Great outdoor dining with live music. Checca and Crema Catalans were superb.
Hidden jewel! Authentic Italian, and we know our Italian. Highly recommended!
Service and food were outstanding. Will definitely return.
Very friendly waiter, excellent wine and the food was delicious!
Server was excellent. She was extremely helpful and very engaging. Meatball appetizer was very good, as was the ravioli. No leftovers for either of us-we ate every bite.
Birthday dinner for a friend. Sat outside. Table was in an angle.
Excellent food with good service. Very nice people. Nice atmosphere.
Our experience last night was incredible! Our server was fabulous. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu items and wine list as well as her personable service. The food was very good and authentic. Great overall experience and we are looking forward to returning!
Their Carciofi ala "Artichoke" is an absolute must! Their Ziti Al Forno and Veal Marsala are always tops as well. You will never be disappointed no matter what you order. The best Italian in San Diego county.
Absolutely a great surprise! The owner meets everyone personally, in true Italian fashion, and serves you as well. Highly recommended!
We both went with the specials. My wife had the halibut and I had the pork chop parmigiana. Both were excellent
