  1. Hung out here in late 50’s. Always a game of liars poker was in progress. Remember Lester Maliza well.

  3. My father, George Houston, hung out here fairly often in the 50s, before getting married. He spoke of Lester Maliza. I remember him bringing home large square pizza for us from time to time, pretty good, at least for us kids.

  6. My Mom and Dad would take us after church service on Sunday Afternoon Lunch/Supper Quite often and I would usually get the Breaded Haddock Fish Dinner that was so large that it did NOT EVEN FIT ON THE OVAL SHAPED PLATE (I Kid you NOT!) — It literally, hung off both sides by a few inches or more! Also, We had Spaghetti & Meatballs, Lobster, Burgers, Etc. – Everything we had was Always Delicious and We always sat on the Dining Room side – As far as I was concerned, The Villa Nova might just as well be the world famous “Guy Savoy. Restaurant” in Paris. What GREAT MEMORIES!
