- About Us -

The 10-room Magnolia Inn has majestically graced Pinehurst Village since 1896. With its quaint, turn of the century charm, it is a magnificent reminder of Pinehurst’s rich history. Throughout its many years, the house has primarily served the community as a boarding house, a doctor’s office, and hospital for children. 

Restaurateurs Ron and Julie Milton purchased the Inn in March 2020, refreshing the rooms, and making extensive renovations to the main level and to the three dining rooms which are now Villaggio Ristorante. They also own Café L’Europe in Sarasota, Florida, a very popular and successful fine dining restaurant established in 1973 on St. Armands Circle. Café L’Europe has built an unparalleled reputation for its elegant and delicious European cuisine, award-winning wines, and professional service.

In October 2021, the Miltons sold Villaggio Ristorante and the Magnolia Inn to Pinehurst Resort, which takes over operations of the hotel and restaurant in January 2022.

Everyone at Villaggio is dedicated to ensuring that your experience is one you will immensely enjoy and keep you returning time and time again. Outstanding food, impeccable service, and the ultimate dining experience is more than their goal, it’s their passion.
