Great Italian place. food is well done. Can bring your own bottles of wine which is great because lets face it, in altoona, no one has good wine on their menu! Decor about a decade behind. Sometimes they have guys playing music. Good little place to visit in altoona. I give food A-, atmosphere B, Chef is good man A!.... More

The food was delicious. The service was a little slow, but the homemade quality of food made up for it.

Ate here twice in the past few weeks, first evening was 2 days before Christmas with the family, a fairly large group, and all was well, food was great, choices numerous, everyone raved about it. One week went by and the same 2 days before New Years, with another couple and what a difference, they had the "New Years" menu... More

My dad and I were looking for an Italian restaurant on our way back from a trip. We saw positive reviews and thought we'd give it a try. It did not disappoint! The gnocchi was perfection (warm, soft, and tasty). Eggplant was also great. But, the best part for me was the tiramisu!! As a tiramisu-lover, I took a slice... More

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
