Go To Comfort Food

The place to go for good Italian comfort food. Consistent taste and presentation of food. Great Italian selections - eggplant parmigiana, chef salad, manicotti. The house made salad dressing is very good. The nova steak is a particularly good selection. Wait staff is friendly and attentive.

Honest to goodness Italian food. Very popular place with good food. Always busy. Lots of copper pots and pans, etc. on walls for decor. Fun to see; and mostly cheerful/happy wait staff. A great gathering place where parties of many can linger and chat. Usually enough parking and right on main road, so easy to spot.

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
