Welcome to the Idiot

The Village Idiot Pizza and Pub's original location is in the heart of Five Points in Columbia, SC. We have been a local favorite since we first stepped on the scene back in 1990. The second location opened in 2009 and is nestled in the Forest Acres neighborhood of Columbia.

Both locations are most famous for our hand-tossed NY-Style Pizza, available by the slice or a whole pie. Other menu favorites include wings, sandwiches, salads, stromboli's and calzone's. If you are looking for a full service experience for a great meal and a pint the Five Points Pizza and Pub location is the spot for you. Our traditional counter style pizzeria located in Forest Acres has a real neighborhood feel without the bar atmosphere. Both locations are excited to serve you whether you dine-in, order for pickup or we deliver to the comforts of your home!

We invite you to come in and hang out with us. You will see that there is always something fun going on at #Idiotpizza. With nightly food and drink specials, trivia, sports action on the TV's, and much more, there is something that will cater to everyone.

Speaking of catering...The Village Idiot also has a full service catering department to help you with any business or social function. Check out the catering section for more details.

Have fun exploring our new website and we hope to see you soon!
