We love this restaurant, not only because we can walk to it, but because it's very reasonable. Plus, there are specials everyday that you wouldn't expect at an Italian restaurant, like fresh fish! This time I tried the Pesto Gnocchi with pine nuts, and it...More

My sister and I were in search of an Italian restaurant for dinner during our stay in Del Mar and somehow found our way to Villa Capri. The special dinner for 2 is an unbelievable value. We started with the artichoke hearts appetizer as recommended...More

Dinner was great. Very much like food we had in Italy. The menu selection was wonderful. Lots to choose from. Wine selection a little weak. They could improve the list of italian wines.

They had fixed price lunch specials which proved to be delightful. I had ravioli, lentil soup, additional salad, and rice pudding. I sat right in the enjoyable sun. Very attentive waiter.

This restaurant looked promising, but it was kind of weird. They were very full, especially for a Sunday night. The salads were very good. They serve bread only with olive tapenade, which isn't for everybody - olive oil or butter would have been better. Chicken...More
