In 1957, Carl Ruffalo opened his first pizzeria in Columbus Park.
The Villa D’ Carlo has been a landmark of the Kenosha waterfront district for almost 50 years. The restaurant was founded by Carl Ruffalo, a Kenosha resident who wanted to offer the now famous stone bottom oven pizzas and full dinner experience to his community.
Carl’s family continues this tradition today. The Villa D’ Carlo offers a unique blend of Italian cuisine staples, delicious flat cornmeal crust pizzas, a wide variety of seafood, choice cut steaks and sandwiches, and our famous Southern Italian, custard-style Tiramisu. We also offer full banquet services for up to 150 people (with proper reservation) and are stocked with two full-service bars.
