Ordered signature Lasagne plate at $15 with great expectations. Unfortunately the cook must not be Italian or Sicilian since they forgot how to make this dish. No real cheese noticed in layers, and overheated before refreshing precooked dish to serve. Lge chunks of ground meat in bottom layer takes over dish.

Service is good, food O.K., but not worth going out of you way to eat here. Did not try the pizza which several people said has always been good. Can't really knock the restaurant, food or service.

Been coming here for years. It used to be busy. We were there on a weeknight and were the only one in the restaurant (except the bar). Sad to see. You can tell things are slipping when you drive up and see that the neon sign is half lit up and has been that way for months. If you want... More

We first visited the restaurant with friends, sat in the bar and ordered appetizers and a pizza. I was impressed with the calamari. It was fresh and melted in my mouth. The pizza has a very thin crust just the way pizza was when we were growing up. I had a family luncheon to plan at the last minute and... More

My friend and I had dinner here tonight because we heard they had new management and a new chef. Our last experience here under the old management was less than desirable. Unfortunately, the new management has retained all the negative features of the restaurant and eliminated the few good features. There were 16 tables in the place and only one... More

We buy groupons regularly to try new places. Some good, some not so good. This may be the best one we've ever purchased. I have been to northern and southern Italy and the food is fantastic. Ther are some good Italian restaurants in the area, but none reminded of Italy, until now. Chef Giulio's preparation and the taste of the... More

Villa Nova has recently had a change of chefs and atmosphere. This isn't the old Villa Nova we all grew up with In Villa Park. While that was a nice, warm friendly pizza place, this new Villa Nova will blow you away. Their recent acquisition of their new chef from near Naples Italy, is a real treasure. And it's not... More
