As delicious as the local cuisine is, there may come a time when you will find yourself craving a taste of something different. Italian Villa serves up a simple menu of delicious Italian fare including classics like spaghetti with marinara sauce, lasagna, chicken parmesan, homemade pasta and meatball sandwiches. The restaurant itself is simple, homely and inviting. While a fine-dining restaurant this is certainly not, the food is fresh, flavorful and generous; the perfect ingredients for a simple and hearty meal. Unfortunately, Italian Villa does not posses a liquor license, so you won't be able to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal when dining here. Don't let this deter you though, for the food is really quite delicious.

Served alongside pickled okra, collard greens, coleslaw, potato salad and tacos, a meal at Danny's Place is sure to satisfy. Friendly and laid-back, this restaurant is a great place to enjoy a simple, hearty meal with family and friends.
