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.

Usually enjoy Villa Nova but the sever was short-tempered, rushed & rude. The salads were below par.

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.

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

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.

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 :)

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.

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.
