Welcome to…
Carl’s Pizza & Villa D’ Carlo

In 1957, Carl Ruffalo opened his first pizzeria in Columbus Park. He used only the freshest ingredients for his original family recipe, and stone-bottomed ovens for a perfect crispy crust. Villa D’ Carlo soon became famous for thin crust pizza. Although times have changed, Carl’s Pizza hasn’t. Today the same family recipes are used…from the dough to our slow simmered sauce and homemade sausage.

Carl’s family continues this tradition today. 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. The restaurant has been a landmark of the Kenosha waterfront district for almost 50 years. 

Villa D’ Carlo is unsurpassed at accommodating banquets, business meetings, retirement parties, and other social gatherings. We offer full banquet services for up to 150 people and are stocked with two full-service bars. Villa D’ Carlo’s exceptional service, outstanding Italian cuisine, and unique seasonal atmosphere will help make your event one to remember.
