  1. Pizza Villa is well known for their mouthwatering, delicious pizza. No one would expect this place to be a place where spirits roam. However, numerous former employees and managers would beg to differ.

    The building where Pizza Villa is located has been around for many years. Many different people have been in and out of the restaurant. There are rumors of the apartment above, being haunted by a ghoul of a woman who died there. Also a man, who died. He fell down the stairs, by where the bathrooms of Pizza Villa are now located.

    There are many different things that have been reported to occur here. The current owner’s granddaughter has experienced many things, being a believer herself. She has seen lights flicker in the dining room, without anyone touching the switch. She has also seen the girls bathroom door shake, as if someone was trying to get in. However, no one was there, and no one was trying to get in.

    Employees have reported something causing spoons to rattle that hang on the wall. Pizza boxes fall to the floor, without any reason why. Cabinets open and close themselves. They have also reported to see shadows move and voices whispering, specifically in the basement.

    The basement is a place where none of them like to be, which is something they all would agree on. It is dark, unfinished, cold, and eerie overall.

    The owner denies that it is haunted, but there are too many accounts of strange occurrences to be a coincidence.

    Whatever you believe is up to yourself, and what you experience. The things that happen here could just be a coincidence, imagination, or maybe it is a spirit.

  2. My friend’s parents now own this restaurant, and she has reported to me multiple accounts of rattling spoons, and just the other day, an old smoker type cough coming from the basement.

  3. This restaurant is currently owned by the parents of my friend, and she has told me that she has heard rattling spoons on several occasions, and just the other day she heard what sounded like an old smoker coughing coming from the basement.
