The Villa Rosa opened its doors in May of 1996 in our same original location, right here at 795 Westminster Avenue West. We have built our reputation over the years by offering consistently great food & an extensive local and Italian wine list, that truly compliments our menu and makes for a unforgettable experience. We look forward to you dining with us!! CIN CIN

Great food reasonably priced with wonderful setting. Very nice wine list. They were very busy on the night of our visit and we had a later reservation, hence, the food was a bit slow getting to our table, but overall a very good evening!

Very good Italian food. A definite repeat for us. The Linguini Vongole was delicious and the Caesar salad was the way I like it. Great wine selection at a reasonable price.

My husband and I had a delightful birthday meal at Villa Rosa--one of our two local favourites in Penticton. They produce a consistently excellent product with great, knowledgable servers. Tyler (owner) always comes to the table to chat and check that everything is to their high standards. We took our own special bottle of wine and were charged a small corkage fee to have it served. We have, in the past, had family occasions on the outdoor patio in the summer and it is lovely--with the same excellent service and food quality. We would highly recommend Villa Rosa for both a casual meal or an intimate special occasion. We've never been disappointed! Karen and Randy Repka

The service was excellent and the food was pretty good. It was a bit noisy but I believe that was because a couple of very large table groups

If you like veal yes otherwise probably no. There are many items on the menu however most contain veal that I do not believe in eating. My seafood pasta didn't have much taste. My husband said his dinner was very good but of course it contained veal. Service was okay but we often had to wait to get water and have plates cleared. On this occasion it was very busy and very noisy.

Unfortunately my pasta dish was the worst I have ever had. In fact the next day I had an upset stomach. This I attribute to the seafood in the pasta. The wine was good, our server was very capable and pleasant. My wife's dinner was fine. An experience to be forgotten.

We always enjoy our meal at Villa Rosa...we go there for every birthday and anniversary to celebrate the occasion. As always our meal was lovely and the service attentive. The noise level was quite high as the restaurant was busy and the music was too loud to converse easily. We were disappointed that our anniversary was not acknowledged this time. It was added to our reservation...but our server did not even say Happy Anniversary...unusually we find a bit more of a personal approach at Villa Rosa which we appreciate.
All in all...still a lovely evening...maybe we'll avoid the Saturday night crowd next time.

We have been here on many occasions over the years. This is the first time we found the service sub par. Found our server indifferent on the rare occasions she came by our table. Had to flag other servers down to just get something as simple as a water refill. Hope this was just an off night. Will try again.

We were in Penticton for the Jazz Festival and Villa Rosa was recommended to us. What a great place - the food and service was excellent. Between four of us we tried a pasta dish, veal and chicken and each one was great. The server also recommended wines that we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely return when we are in Penticton and recommend Villa Rosa to others.

Overall meal was fine. One person did not receive what they ordered, however this was fixed promptly. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dinner (pasta) was tasty and hot, which is not always the case with pasta in other restaurants.

Service was first rate.
Way too much street noise when on the patio.
Crab and shrimp Alfredo dish ... expensive, extremely small portion of crab, and very bland sauce.
Funghi pasta dish ... very tasty ... excessively greasy.

We sat outdoors in the patio beside the roadway. Nice ambiance but quite noisy as traffic is right outside especially when motorcycles go by. That is why I didn’t give them higher points. Food was just the right size portion. Waitress was attentive. All in all. a good meal and value.

They make the best lasagna, their sauce is one of the best I've ever tasted. And it's my husband's favorite dish. Everything was fresh and flavourful.

We did a short notice visit to the VR, via Open Table and we were very pleased that we got in and served so well.

The starters and mains were excellent, service was great, handy when you needed but not intrusive. The meals all arrived hot, which was greatly appreciated by all. Only issue would have been beetroot as a garnish was not a winner but quickly made up by the tiramisu and the gelato!

We highly recommend that if you’re in Penticton, pay a visit to the VR!

Caesar salad was less than desirable. Fettuccine with crab and prawns was not what I thought it would be. A small piece of crab and some small cocktail type shrimp. Sauce tasted good which saved the dish. Overall nice atmosphere.
