many restaurants do deliver, though, and nearly every type of food is available within 1-2 miles down the main line, which is only about $8 for a cab- nothing, when split between a group. Many students will walk the distance, as Villanova is a very active campus. Everything from SushiLand to Bertucci's, Arrowroot Organic to Kostas Mediterranean.
There are a few restaurants right on the edge of campus, such as Campco, Wingers, and the Nova Grill. Other than that, restaurants are a ways down the road, not walkable.
Some farther ones are in walking distance, but its about a twenty minute walk

One of the best aspects of the Greater Philadelphia area is the range of good food available to almost anyone, from a college student to a family going out to celebrate—Philly has it all. Within the immediate towns surrounding Villanova, you can get Thai, Chinese, American, Italian, and so on, all for an affordable price. A good idea for any student is to sample some of the ethnic cuisine that is just a stone’s throw from the school. Most of the places are pretty cheap and like college kids! While pizza and french fries usually end up being the staple foods for most students, you should also diversify and try some of other foods that Philly has to offer, namely its pretzels and the must-have Philly cheesesteak. While most cities have a “best pizza” restaurant, in Philly it’s all about who has the best cheesesteak, and it’s more than a matter of pride. At least once, every student should head down to South Street and try Jim’s, Pat’s, and Geno’s.
It has been argued by many that the Greater Philly area is comparable to the diverse and well-known restaurant industry of its neighbor, New York City. Not only is it on par with the best dining around, it’s a relief to have some real food after a week or two of the college cafeteria.
