The vodka sauce is the best we ever had and the eggplant parm is also very good. We have been there several times and never walked away hungry. The owner is very personable and works the tables talking with the patrons about their meal to see if they are satisfied. Highly recommended

Family was traveling I-99 and needed some lunch. We weren't interested in the typical fast food garbage so found this place on TA. It was a few minutes off the interstate, but easy to find and plenty of parking. We were the only people in the restaurant, which scared us a bit. Entrees come with fresh bread covered in garlic...

The Villa Capri is the place to go for a couple or multiple couples for a great meal when you want to have time to visit. The menu is varied and the meals are very well prepared and not rushed. The wait staff are very good and professional.

Wide selection of food large portions but they don't serve alcohol so you need to bring your own. They will open it and serve it. Home made gnocchi's and raviolis They also have other dishes all very good

Ten of us joined together for a group dinner. I had a tossed salad with balsamic dressing on the side. Dressing was very tasty. Salad was a bit chunky but easily cut and tasty. Man course was a crab and shrimp stuffed sole. Cooked perfectly with wine and garlic. I would order that again and again.

We recently celebrated a birthday here, and they were very accommodating. They let us bring our own cake, and were kind enough to give us some privacy, instead of sticking us in the middle of the dining room. We got there early, so the place was practically empty, but closer to the dinner hour, it started to fill up rather... More

Reservations are definitely a good idea; this is a classy place with (what I would imagine to be) authentic, traditional Italian cuisine. This ain't no Olive Garden! The food is amazing, and the atmosphere is pleasant. The location isn't the best, and the parking lot is pretty small, but I still highly recommend giving them a shot. (Just call ahead... More
