Please be good, please be good… The liquor license placard for Villa Tuscana says:

“New Italian restaurant. Total Occupancy Load: 123. Inside seating for 99 patrons. Sidewalk Café seating 24 patrons. Entertainment Endorsement.”

Chief Ike’s closed after almost 25 years in March. Updates as they get closer to opening.

    It would be a nice start if they got the Italian right…una villa toscana.

    Gonna want to give that one a good scrub.

    The permit was obtained by “El Agave Tex Mex Rest. LLC” … not a good sign for an authentic Italian spot.
