The Italian hospitality practically oozes out the front door at Villa Capri Ristorante in Altoona. From the friendly hostess, who continuously checks in on diners to make sure they're happy, to the warm parmesan-dusted rolls that kick off each meal, compliments of the kitchen, Villa Capri emanates Old World charm. The enormous portions and BYO option are just perks of dining here.

Since the classic Italian eatery sits less than a mile from Walton Heights, it's easy enough to swing by for dinner. The menu showcases everything you'd expect to see at a true Italian restaurant, from heaping plates of pasta to veal parmesan and fresh seafood. From the gnocchi to the stuffed shells, everything tastes better with the house's signature vodka sauce. You can also dig into veal, chicken, seafood, and eggplant dishes sans the pasta. If you're craving a pizza, Villa Capri offers both Chicago-style deep dish and New York thin crust pies, plus calzones and strombolis.
