Officials with Villa Roma Italian Ristorante at 12640 Telge Road, Ste. E, Cypress, have announced plans to add a wine and cocktail lounge on the second floor. The Cypress restaurant has been operating since 2015.

This lounge will boast high ceilings, big windows, comfortable chairs and booths, a 13-seat bar, a stage for live music, and a rooftop terrace, officials said. The upstairs lounge will only serve appetizers, wine, beer and cocktails. The full menu can be enjoyed in the downstairs dining room. This lounge is expected to be open by the end of April.
