“truly a family restaurant”
Frank and Donna Colleli started Villa Nova in 1978. Their first two years were spent converting the bar into a restaurant and bar, changing, replacing, and fixing up the establishment. Previously, Frank had numerous restaurants and pizza shops around central Ohio, including Frankie’s Pizza and Franco’s. In 1986, they decided to sell Villa Nova and retire to Florida. Frank’s son John had been working in the kitchen at the time of the sale. John continued to work at the Villa under new management and, in 1998, convinced Frank and Donna to come out of retirement to buy back Villa Nova. Currently, the entire family runs it and continue to make improvements to the kitchen, menu and restaurant. Frank and Donna still come into the restaurant almost daily while John, his wife Meghan, and his brother Frankie are all part of the business.
