“Incredible Italian cucina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

I wish more people knew about this place. Really a gem in Columbia, SC! Always the best service, tip-top ingredients, endless options on the menu, and great drinks selection. The interior of the restaurant is dimly-lit and beautifully-decorated, gives for an intimate feeling. "Where the locals eat"

“Enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Met a couple co-workers at the Villa and had a good lunch. Service was friendly and very responsive, everyone liked their food (salads and pizza, so kind of hard to mess up), and the atmosphere is relaxing and not too loud. It's darker than most, so keep that in mind for business lunches.

“Amazing Food at a Great Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The service wasn't great, but we didn't mind as we were sitting at the bar watching the Masters Practice Round. The Three Cheese Mushrooms were great and the hand rolled manicottis and scratched made lasagna were awesome.

The quality of the homemade dishes was amazing and the prices were extraordinarily reasonable.


A definite must visit, looks a little rough from the outside, but definitely worthwhile.

“Great food and value for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Don't let the non-descript entry and building turn you off. Nice atmosphere, great food and excellent prices. I would highly recommend supreme pizza and Greek salad. Great deAl on wine.

“If you are hungry ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Pretty dark inside - that is not as it Looks in Italy. Friendly staff and waiters - food average. Everything Comes from the oven ( al forno ) even the veal .
