Went with friends and family and had a terrific time. Besides the wait (an hour), we really enjoyed it. The service was friendly and excellent, the food good, and the prices very reasonable. I had the gnocchi which were very good. Other dishers were very good as well including chicken parm, the rigatoni special, and alfredo. This is not high... More

It's really popular and crowded, but the food is very good and you get decent portions and the service is pretty quick. They have tons of variety and lots of great specials, so you can easily get lost in the menu, trying to decide what to get. Everything our large group had was excellent, hot, fresh and delicious.

This restaurant serves great typical Italian food. Lasagna, gnocchi, spaghetti, ravioli - they offer it all and it is all really good. Almost every pasta entree comes with salad and breadsticks. The portions are very generous and the service is good. This is a great place to come with your family for a good italian meal. It is usually busy... More

We went here with family and found the service to be good and the food to be really good. The portions were definitely large enough to take half home for another meal later. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and the bread sticks were soft, flavorful and never ending. i had the Gnocchi that came with meatballs. I specifically said I... More

Wanted to take an Italian class to Villa Nova for a Sunday dinner. It is a busy time but with 3 hours notice they arranged a table for 15 in the back of the restaurant. The meals are American interpretations of classic Italian staples. The real "Spaghetti alla Carbonara" is listed as "Spaghetti Carabonari, made with capellini and Alfredo sauce",... More

I had high hopes for this place, but the pizza left me a little disappointed. Its more like a restaurant that happens to have pizza, not a restaurant that is focused on pizza. Nice atmosphere and the place seems to have a lot of history. The pizza in my opinion was average. It reminds me of Tommy's but not quite... More

I remembered the my first visit, about 4 years ago being pretty good. It was as crowded as it was today, but that only tells you how good the food/ service is at this restaurant. Waited for a couple of minutes and slowly walked to our table since they were just cleaning it up. The bread was delicious. I had... More

You can't beat this restaurant for real Italian. It gets busy so go early or be prepared to wait. It's like stepping back in time. I don't think it's changed since my first dinner there 35 years ago. That's not a bad thing!

Lunch, bowl of shrimp and sausage gumbo and half sub. Also a wonderful wedding soup. Everyday is different. All soups are delicious .A varied lunch menu also offers a wonderful linguine and clams in a creamy sauce. Salads are included with dinner. Great pizza and attentive service.

My wife and I met her Sister and brother-in-law here for dinner on Wednesday night. It was the first time my wife and I had ever eaten at Villa Nova and we were pleasantly surprised.
