An Italian classic in Cols/Worthington

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... read 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 The interior of the place is little outdated but that is what makes it have character.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.

My friend and I had dinner here. It's a small town feel and family friendly. I tried their new deep dish pepperoni pizza. It was good. I wished the crust had more flavor. My friend had the chicken parmesan and it was a huge portion. We started with the mozzarella sticks. They were big and fat and cooked perfectly. We... More

We had a family dinner at Villa Nova in Worthington Ohio, just north of Columbus. The service was slow, the food was average, but the quantities were huge. Very noisy. The spaghetti sauce was somewhat sweet, but not bad. The veal parmigiana was cut very thick, but not bad. I would not go out of my way to eat here.

My family has been going to Villa Nova for years and we have never had a bad meal. My favorite thing on the menu is the supreme pizza, with the crust extra crispy, and with lots of bird sead (crushed red pepper).
