Welcome to Villa Tronco
 Lunch Monday-Friday: 11am-3pm
Monday-Saturday: 5pm-10pm

Columbia, SC (Est. 1940)
The Civil War and Prohibition messed up a lot of things in the South, but chief among them was the uninterrupted operation of some of their finest drinking and dining establishments. Since the liquor control boards and historical societies have limited records, this World War II-era spot is the oldest restaurant that can confirm continuous operation in a state that dates back to 1788. An Italian joint, it was originally opened by a family who wanted Italian-American soldiers training at Ft. Jackson to enjoy a little home cooking
