Pizza Villa Changing Hands

Brothers Sam and Rob Minervino recently signed a lease for Pizza Villa after extended discussions and coordination with Maine Med, and with the Regios brothers who own the restaurant.

The Minervinos plan to do some minor renovations, but otherwise keep things going as they are once takeover. Maine Med is in the process of buying the building and is expected to complete the transaction later this month.

Pizza Villa was founded in 1965 by Mike Regios and is currently owned and operated by his sons Tony and Phil. Various members of the Minervino family own Samuels on Forest Ave, Tomasso’s on Hampshire St, and Legend’s Rest in Westbrook.

  1. Great news!!!!! Love love SAMUELS!!!! DOUBLE DIP DIRTY WINGS THE BEST!!!!!!. WHEN AT MAINE MED. WILL STOP BY!!!!! BEST WISHES !!!! DORIS AND MARK

  2. Well we know it will still be good then. I just got schooled on what it takes to own a restaurant in Portland. All kinds of fees. Good luck SAm.

    1. Really? It costs about twelve hundred dollars a year for the State and City licenses needed to operate a restaurant here in Portland. If you decide to have live music, that’s a separate fee. Given that even a business like Pizza Villa can easily generate a half million dollars a year in gross revenues, it’s hardly a major cost of doing business.

  3. We are so pleased and happy to have the Minervino Family begin a new chapter at our beloved Pizza Villa.

  4. The best pizza in the whole state I think. We will embrace the new owners and continue to support Pizza Villa.
