Village Idiot Pizza is celebrating 30 years of serving NY-style slices and good times in a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. The Columbia classic hits a major milestone that few local restaurants have achieved.
The original location has become a fixture in Five Points, Columbia’s original village neighborhood. It was opened in 1990 by three friends from New Jersey who lovingly referred to themselves as “the village idiots” in the neighborhood. The name stuck, and now the jester imagery is one of the most recognizable in the area.
After two expansions - one into Forest Acres and one to the Olympia neighborhood, Village Idiot is proud to still be slinging pies.
How we’re tackling the Covid-19 crisis:
We cannot say thank you enough for the support and trust you have placed in us - not only to serve your food but to feed our hard working healthcare community members as well. Without our incredible staff this would not be possible. As the Governor begins lifting restrictions on restaurants we want to assure you that we will continue to take every precaution to keep our staff and customers safe and healthy. We will move forward as we feel our restaurants and staff are ready. At this time we will continue with our curbside and delivery options and have now opened the dining rooms for limited table service.
