Well, what a pleasant surprise! We were just passing through Columbia and stayed at the Best Western on Bush River Road next door to The Villa. It had been a long day, we were tired, and didn't want to drive far for dinner. So we took a chance on the restaurant right next door. Good move!
The unassuming appearance of the outside of the building gave us pause, but ahead we went and entered a lovely little Italian restaurant. Subtly lit and cozy, the place smelled delicious.
A pleasant hostess settled us into an intimate booth, and we explored the ample menu. Hubby chose the eggplant, which he pronounced to be delicious. I'm the pizza snob in the family and ordered the personal size pizza, which was a generouos nine inches. It, too, was top shelf, and after I ate my fill, I kept the remaining slice for a midnight snack, something I never do.
We figured this is a local favorite, as there were several families who were obviously familiar with the restaurant.
If you stay at the BW, do yourself a favor and enjoy a wonderful Italian dinner at The Villa. No need to drive around looking for a good Italian restaurant. The one right next door is excellent!
