Diner Reviews
  • "The place was busy when we arrived, but we were promptly seated and waited upon. It is a small restaurant and they had ample staff. We Had several appetizers and main dishes. All were excellent and the service was great."

  • "We went for a late dinner with a BIG group (6 adults and 6 children). There were very few other tables. Our waitress seemed a bit flustered at times, however, she did a good job keeping up with us and was very patient with the confusion originated by waiting for 6 children. We later realized that we had probably stayed longer than anticipated; the staff gave no signs of being in rush to get us out the door, and fulfilled all our requests. The food was excellent! We all loved our dishes, we had options for sizes and the staff was very accommodating in this regards. The kids ate all their food and enjoyed the experience. We would definitely come back!"

  • "My husband and I were able to get a last minute reservation with booking online, so we were happy about that. The service was great, everyone was nice and it was decent timing. We were both a little disappointed with the food. Thought it would be a little better, I felt it was just alright. I'm sure we would go back, just may not be a first pick."

  • "We have been traveling to Penticton for years for family vacations, and this is BY FAR one of the best restaurants here. Their menu is outstanding, their staff superb, and their wine list excellent...especially if enjoyed on their lush, outdoor, garden patio! We come here as many times as we can during our stay."

  • "Fantastic food! Portion, flavor and presentation was impressive. Great selection of wines and pleasant knowledgable servers. We had the the chicken with prawns and the veal topped with lobster and crab with a creamed curry sauce. Omg so good! Will definately be back next time we visit Penticton."

  • "Rather ordinary, I was expecting some WOW but it was not to be. I had the rack of ribs that were dry and not well flavoured. I may try again but would be sceptical about the food quality."

  • "We treated some friends to a 'thank you' dinner at Villa Rosa on a Friday night. The restaurant and patio were both constantly active and ever changing. We spent 3 hours there and were never rushed nor delayed. The server was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We all ordered different items from the menu and everyone appreciated a well presented and perfectly prepared meal. I would highly recommend this location for a lovely dinner!"

  • "The food was made with fresh ingredients and every part of all the entree's were cooked properly. The pasta and sides and veg were all cooked the way they should be. The only thing I found wrong with the food with 7 entree's ordered was that the special Prime Rib my wife ordered was a little cold and rare; but still delicious. I'm an executive Chef and I am very picky and this was food to brag about in Penticton."

  • "Lovely decor in restaurant, large, comfortable patio, great service, friendly, efficient and professional. Great menu with all the Italian classics plus several Villa Rosa specialties. Dinner was excellent, from applies to salad to the main course with a good wine list to accompany it. Looking forward to our next visit"

  • "My family is not Italian so for us the food is tasty and something we wouldn't normally make for ourselves. The main issue would be the price. For what you get it's pretty expensive so this isn't somewhere you would go everyday or every week but every now and then it's nice. Also there tends to be large groups and lots of kids so it can get pretty noisy."

  • "The Villa Rosa is in a unique spot: close to the beach yet on a major street (so it's easy to access). The people are welcoming and if you get a booth it's very intimate once you're seated; if you get a regular table, it is a bit more jovial, but just as enjoyable. The food portions are sizeable: we had sufficient to have a second meal at home (lunch the next day). The food was superb with wine; the next day, the nuked version was without wine, but was just about as good. Will definitely go back, especially once the patio opens."

  • "Wonderful meal! Had a lovely private table for two in a corner booth, made us feel like we were the only ones there despite a couple large parties. Great service, even brought over a "tide to go" pen after a pasta incident. Decent wine list, fabulous chocolate mousse. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a romantic date night. Generous portion sizes too."

  • "A wonderful place to dine. Lots of food choices. Italian cuisine at it's finest. The service was excellent and the server's knowledge of the menu and wine list was exceptional. A great place for a romantic dinner or an office gathering. A must to add to your favorites."

  • "First visit to this restaurant . Very nice atmosphere, warm and friendly. The service was very good. The prime rib was prepared as requested and the OssoBucco was delicious . I would recommend the creme brûlée for dessert. A very nice evening and would definitely visit again when in Penticton."

  • "We went this time with a group of 10 to celebrate a birthday. The service is very good, food has a real flair, and the dining room very "polished". As with many restaurants, the noise level can be a bit much, but this is hard to control in even the best of environments. I was a bit surprised to have essentially the same sauce on my mussels/clams starter as with my osso bucco. Other than this, this is a consistently excellent place to dine, and to dine well. Wine list represents some of the best of the S. Okanagan."

  • "A group of 6 of us had dinner and wine. It was very enjoyable and they were very accomodating to our requests. We drank from their good collection of local wines and were suitably impressed. The Wine from Fairview Cellars was especially enjoyable. Service was first rate."

  • "We celebrated Valentine's Day at the Villa Rosa and it was a lovely, romantic evening. I have eaten here many times and the food was outstanding. The service was very personable, yet professional. Giving each lady a rose was a nice touch. I had a special gift for the men of our lives and the folks at the restaurant were very helpful in assisting me with my little surprise. Noise level was on the loud side, but, what can you expect during these busy holidays. All restaurants deal with this issue. The sounds of life - a beautiful evening. Thanks to Tyler, Nicole and staff."

  • "Villa Rosa Ristorante went above and beyond to make a bad situation more tolerable--providing extra wine (which we didn't drink) and picking up the tab. There was a very loud Christmas party, so they moved us to the patio, which I imagine is fabulous in the summer, not so heavenly in the colder months. I'm a foodie and between the three of us who were dinning only one main course met expectations. Presentation of dishes were simple and not what I would expect for a 4 star restaurant, candies plunked on the table when we finished. Two main courses barely touched. Definitely not what I expected considering the reviews we researched on Open Table. If the meal had been fabulous, I might have been able to forgive booking us in during a Chri"

  • "The atmosphere was great wine we ordered was out of stock a recommendation of another choice turned out well a bit of an error on the appetizer but the main meal was very good the three of us had something different and were happy with our choices. The restaurant is a wonderful place to spend an evening and never felt rushed."
