The Oldest Restaurant In South Carolina Has A Truly Incredible History
It may surprise you to learn that South Carolina’s oldest restaurant is not located in South Carolina’s oldest city.
In the heart of Columbia, only a few blocks from the Governor’s Mansion, there’s a restaurant that opened in the capital city in 1940. As the oldest restaurant in South Carolina, Villa Tronco has a truly incredible history, including being credited with turning the city on its heels upon introducing pizza to South Carolina.
