Wonderful family Ristorante

We have been coming to Columbus for business for the last several years and this is our go to place, where we want good food and service. The daily specials are great. There is a good selection to choose from on the menu.

Villa Nova has been in business a lot of years and there is a reason why. The serve regular, simple (nothing fancy), Italian food for a reasonable price. My favorite is the lasagna and their pizza. The serve yourself popcorn machine when you arrive is a nice touch, but your order arrives before you have eaten much of the popcorn.

I ate here while on a business trip, based on a suggestion from a coworker. Its a definite favorite of the locals. It was semi busy for a Monday nite. Service was fine, the waitress was pleasant, but hurried. The food was good. I'd consider going back if I was in the area again

Horrid food, incompetent service. This experience crystallizes my conclusion that there are atleast 2 distinct group of restaurant goers. There are those who love and those who hate the same place. So you may want to check out several reviews from the same person to see if your taste profile matches theirs. THE FOOD Mediocre to plain awful. The stromboli... More

When I lived in Columbus years ago, this was always a favorite. few weeks now and went to Villa Nova yesterday. If this place has changed at all, it has just gotten more popular. Very good Italian dinners and killer pizza! Plus one of the best Happy Hours you will find anywhere. You will not be disappointed!

We've been saying we would try this place right down the street from our house and finally got around to it! I thought the food was authentic and at a good price. The atmosphere was family friendly, and had a "local watering hole" feel, as if groups might gather, hang out, and catch up on a regular basis. There was... More

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.

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.

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.
