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.

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

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.

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
