Don't judge by the look of the place.

Don't let the interesting decor stop you from eating here. They have very good food. Service could be a little better,but, the good food makes up for any down side of the place.

We always take time to stop by this fine restaurant when traveling to Columbus. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food delicious. This trip I chose to try the villa nova burger. What a nice surprise! A great burger from an Italian place. It had a nice flavor and you can order it however you like it. They... More

Wonderful Restaurant! Got a chance to eat there the other night. The food here is always great and tastes good. We just had the pizza and it was my 2nd time trying that. It was just as good as the 1st time. Great flavor and looked amazing. Only thing I would improve would be to offer another choice on crust.... More

This is one of my husband's favorite restaurants. It is not a chain which is always a plus in my book. He used to go here 30+ years ago with his family. Nothing fancy about the place. The decor is old school with lots of copper kettles and pressure gauges. We took his parents for dinner. We knew it is... More

We have been many times over the years, but likely haven't been for a decade! Still good basic Italian. Service was good and they were packed with a 30 minutes wait on Saturday at 6:00! not much on ambiance, but good food and friendly and efficient waiter.

My wife and I got to the restaurant around 6:40pm on a busy Saturday night. We waited about an hour. The place has no waiting area unless you want to go into the bar area and hang out, where it is loud and crowded with people. so if you don't want to drink, your choice would be wait in the... More

Villa Nova is an old Italian restaurant and has been in business at this location for many years. The decor is sort of kitschy with lots of old copper kettles and old pressure gauges lining the walls. At dinner time, there is almost always a wait for a table - regardless of day of the week but especially true on... More

The atmosphere is very unique: There are hundreds of copper pots and brass gauges that line the walls. This is a place that you can take a group of people if you call ahead. They have a full Italian menu to pick from. We had a pizza and it was OK, nothing really special. Others in our group ordered sandwiches... More

This was my second time eating there. I was there during lunch and I got the lasagna. You get a large portion of it. The food is always excellent and the service is pretty good. The interior of the place is little outdated but that is what makes it have character.

This place is amazing! My family and I have been coming here for years and it's always good. It's a smaller restaurant with a homey feel. Lots of cool decorations on the walls. My favorite is the fettuccine alfredo but I've tried just about everything and it's always perfect.
