Villa Nova Restaurant 3131 W Coast Hwy, Newport Beach, CA92663 Villa Nova Restaurant has long been a Mariner's Mile institution. It's located on the waterfront, very near Harbor Tower…More Marina. The exterior stands out thanks to its theatrical Italian charm. Inside, the dim lighting and classic vibe lend themselves to highlighting the Italian food and harbor views. Seating comes in mostly booth and banquette styles, with the red leather adding a final touch. The menu runs the gamut of Italian classics, from pastas and chicken specialties to seafood and steaks. An extensive wine list offers literally a world of options. Live entertainment is provided night by a lounge singer in the piano bar.
