Not much changes at Villa Nova. They must be doing something right. If you want old school Italian, this is the place to go.

Italian sub, chicken parmigiana, lasagna, seafood fettuccine, and sampler were all very good! All were such large portions we took home for tomorrow! Matt could have been happier to provide good service...just mediocre.

Our favorite pizza in town. Medium thin crispy crust with a light dusting of cornmeal. REAL pepperoni. Just the right amount of cheese and sauce. Traditional, old style pizza. Eat in restaurant where they wait in line outside in the weather IF you get there past 4:30pm. Also cozy bar area.

I love going to Villa Nova to gather with friends around the table for great food and fun times. We always stop by when in town to grab a late night bite. The service here is outstanding, as Sam our waiter takes VERY good care of us. He is always quick to see that our drink order is taken care... More

Great service. Excellent food. We discovered this restaurant about 2 years ago. It is one of the very few places we go now. All of the dinners are high quality, service is way above average, even on busy nights. The happy hour in the bar can get crowded quickly but the bartender and patrons are all friendly. The ONLY place... More

This restaurant has been around for years and I know why. Their food is outstanding. Everything on the menu is excellent. Especially the pizza! No matter when you drive by the parking lot is full.

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
