Was really looking forward to visiting Villa Tronco. Ordered their special Carmella's soup which was mostly broth. Their food was average and I have had better quality and quantity from chains like Olive Garden. I am very fortunate to live in an area where there...More

The food at Villa Tronco is, without exception, outstanding but if I had to focus on one dish to highlight, it would be the Villa Tronco Chicken with artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes and other great stuff served over linguini. But it would be criminally...More

My son had eaten here previously. He'd done some research, was impressed with the reviews, and enjoyed his meal with friends. Since we're rarely in Columbia, he was determined that we visit this restaurant, because of his positive experience. We didn't actually get to eat...More

On Friday evening last week (7/21) we discovered Villa Tronco on Blanding St. in Columbia SC. It was a good evening with fine wine, a good mixed drink and good main course. I choose the Spaghetti while my wife ordered the Chicken Marsala. Both were...More

We met friends here last night for one of their Broadway nights. The music and entertainment was simply delightful. Such excellent vocalists! However the food was very sub-par. Approximately one out of every 5 or 6 times we have eaten here the food was good....More
