Diner Reviews
  • "Great Valentines dinner, Great Food, Great Service and Good wine list. Villa Nova is small and has been here for many years."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Absolutely perfect dinner for Valentine's Day. The service and food is always great - couldn't have been happier with this tremendous restaurant!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Decided to do appetizers and a salad. The bruschetta was awful; overwhelmed with tomatoes, which the bread could not stand up to, making the bread soggy, and there was little else in the way of seasoning. The gnocchi was bland. For the prices charged, it was quite disappointing."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Usually enjoy Villa Nova but the sever was short-tempered, rushed & rude. The salads were below par."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Calamari is awesome. Food take a while to get to you but good food takes time. You can tell everything is made fresh and not from a frozen box."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The food was good, as always, but quite pricey. $28 for an appetizer of calamari, and $7.50 for five dollar sized pieces of bread with sauce and cheese on them, about the equivalent of a slice of bread. Dinner was yummy, and staff was friendly. Meal for 5 adults, no drinks, came to $215."

  • "Great food, as always, and plenty of garlic dishes! Nice ambiance with live acoustical guitar playing in the background."

  • "We usually have a bit if a wait for our entrees, but it is worth the wait! You can't rush perfection. :) This is a place to go to enjoy a bottle of wine with good company and good conversation. If you're planning to see a movie after dinner - don't bother. The staff is friendly and the owner - I just want to hug! This place is about reflection over great food, not stuffing your face and rushing you out the door. Take the time to slow down from the face pace of your hectic life and have a spivey meatball! ...and leave your smartphone at home :)"

  • "Highly recommended by friend but we were a it tele disappointed. Ambiance is dark and decor is quite dated. Needs to be cleaned up a bit! Food was good but not something to seek out."

  • "As the sign at Villa Nova says, "Good food takes time." It seems we waited a bit longer than anticipated, but the food was excellent."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Excellent wine list, with good range of prices. Entrees were delightful and creative. Osso Buco and Tournados of Beef with Blue Cheese and Pistachio Cream Sauce were outstanding. It has been a number of years since we have dined at Villa Nova. Our loss. The strip mall location is more than offset by excellent service and offerings."

  • "Six of us had dinner at Villa Nova on a Saturday night. This place could fast become one of my favorites! Everyone in our party raved about the food. Our sever, Jay, was fabulous. We were there for over 2 1/2 hrs and never felt rushed to leave on a busy Saturday night. Be sure to have dessert! They have an extensive, and tasty, dessert list."

  • "Over the years we have never been disappointed at Villanova. The food, wine, and service have always been very good. The only thing to be aware of is that during the winter it is a bit too cool, especially if you have a table adjacent to the windows. I don't believe it's Georgio's fault, I think it is just the building. However, it doesn't keep us from going back because we just have to dress for the occasion. Another great evening with friends!!"

  • "The food makes up for the claustrophobic seating and slow service. If you can stand being a foot away from your neighbors and their conversations long enough to receive your dinner, it's so worth it. Best italian food I've ever had! Oh and VERY pricey I might add. We went knowing it would be an expensive night so there were no surprises there luckily. Just come prepared to drop some serious cash."

  • "Caesar salad was small for price -8 dollars disappointing and nothing to write home about/ white wine selection not too impressive-marinara best I have ever had"

  • "We went to celebrate our friends wedding, it was a wonderful evening, not to crowded. The food was great and we didn't feel rushed at all. I would definantly go again"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Everything at our table for 4 was great except for my husband's lasagna. It was soupy and had very few noodles. It was extremely greasy too. Not sure what happened since everything else was excellent. The restaurant is quiet and easy to have a nice conversation. Cozy and warm."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "We have been to this restaurant once before and found the food and service fantastic. However, our experience this time wasn't as great as the last one. The restaurant was extremely cold. The food was extremely slow in arriving to our table even though the restaurant wasn't half full. The food was excellent. We will probably go again, however, we will make sure we do not have any other plans for the evening as we were nearly late to a concert. The dining experience took nearly 2 hours and we had to leave 20 minutes after receiving our entree."

  • "Had dinner with a friend, neither of us had been to Villa Nova for a long time. What a pleasant experience. I am a vegan and their menu accommodated my dining needs. Appetizers of bruschetta and caponata prepared without feta were wonderful. This is a true gem."

  • "My wife and I went out on a date night with some friends and we decided to try Villa Nova since nobody has been there before. We made a reservation for 7:15 p.m. but had to push it back to 7:30 due to both of us was running a few minutes behind. Upon getting there about 7:20ish we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table for 6 to be ready. Once we got to our seats everything went great. The service was wonderful and the food was great. Although it took a little longer to cook it was well worth the wait, needless to say it is a place that the wife and I will be going to again."

  • "Villa Nova offers a true Italian experience, from the attentive wait staff, mouth watering appetizers, the ample wine choices, delicious entrees, and decadent desserts, exemplary of Italy's finest. The soft dinner music provides a perfect setting for an intimate dinner, or background for group settings. The decor is true Italian with it's warm Tuscan colors and old-style Chianti wine bottles featured throughout the dining area. Don't be deceived by the location in a strip mall and exterior building. Once you enter, you'll be welcomed into an evening of fine dining in true Italian style."
