Villa Rosa Ristorante
Always a wonderful experience and amazing food at Villa Rosa. Tyler, the owner, greets his guests with a warm welcome and friendly conversation. His staff are professional and very knowledgeable. The food is the icing on the cake. Delicious every time. Take advantage of the Dine Out Okanagan here....terrific value with great choices. Reservations are a must.
great food,great service a very good dining experience!!
Great food and service. Wife has food allergies and they were very attentive and accommodating. Highly recommended.
Never disappointed, always outstanding!! Superb food, staff and service!
This was my first time at the Villa Rosa, and I am sooooo glad I went! The food was incredible, the aura in the place was so peaceful, and the service was pretty darned great as well! (And the bald guy who brought us our salads was cute, too!)
I was given a gift certificate for two, which is how I ended up there. I did find the prices were a bit steep, for my budget, but the meal and service were definitely worth it. I just wish I could afford to eat there on a regular basis!
A lot of New Year’s Eve dinners can be disappointing due to crowds and price increases because it is New Years.... this restaurant was great and blew away my expectations! Kudos to the management of this Italian gem!
Great ambiance, delicious multi flavored selections, courteous promt staff, always a pleasure to dine here.
Our meals were outstanding ! Little heavy on the sauses but other than that we had an amazing meal and evening:)
Fantastic! Our go to place in Penticton for special occasions.
Everything our party ordered was cooked perfectly and tasted outstanding to the final bite. Service was exceptional, friendly and attentive. We couldn’t find anything negative to say if we wanted to but all this place made us want is to plan another visit.
Excellent service with a nice ambiance and very good food! Worth a visit!
Couldn’t have had a better family dinner. It was quiet with amazing service & food that was so delicious there wasn’t a morsel left on any of the plates. They knew it was a special occasion & treated us special.
I loved the idea of eating Italian. As a vegetarian sometimes my options are limited. Pasta is a great “go-to”. But in an Italian restaurant its a feature. Flavours abounded. My husband and our friend started with a very tasty mussel and clam appetizer. I chose the mushroom pasta as my Main and was thrilled with the layers of flavour. When our waitress Anna told me that recipe was in their cookbook I read through to discover those layers. The subtle hint of basil and balsamic came from the addition of their bruschetta blend and a different level of flavour came from adding in a scoop of their pesto. Definitely adding this venue to our Must list. And so Must you.
The food was exceptional. Tenderloin in a cream sauce, vegetables firm with great flavor, and service was wonderful.
As usual we had great service and fabulous food. Highly recommend Villa Rosa.
Already written in TripAdvisor. Compared with others who wrote of their anniversary experience, we were asked, then ignored. We were not impressed with the evening or my meal.
Food was generally very good; however I was disappointed with my lamb. Was expecting it to be roasted or grilled but it was smothered with a very sweet fruity gravy type sauce. Completely ruined the lamb flavour. Just my opinion. Plus all the veggies were super sweet - honey glazed or candied beets. I am just someone who loves the flavours of foods naturally and and not smothered in sauces or spices.
My friends enjoyed their pasta and the mussels were good. Escargot was good but again smothered in garlic cream sauce.
They have a good wine selection of local BC wines which was nice. Overall we enjoyed the evening but I would probably not order the lamb again.
Service was very good!
First time there and we will be back
Great food and waitress and wine
And we also think it has great prices .
We were there for a celebration the food was fantastic the waitress and waiters are the best
Very friendly atmosphere
Wine was delicious
I give them a five star
The owner of the restaurants dropped by and said hello and asked if everything was going great and if he could do anything to make it better experience
And I do apologize I do not
remember it well he’s name
I choose Villa Rosa to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. The dinner and service were excellent. I found the music to be a little distracting but no one else in our party mentioned it so perhaps it was my hearing aids.
The server was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The meals we chose were all different and everyone loved their choices.
We shared a dessert (tiramisu) and it connected to our sweet teeth perfectly. We plan to return soon. Also we forgot on the table a birthday card my Dad wanted to save. We phoned later and our server had saved it for us to pick up the next day. We thought that showed real thought and consideration.
We are regulars at the Villa Rosa and continue to enjoy our dinners there. This one was for My Grandaughters 16th. birthday. "Her choice of restaurant....obviously all ages love it!
We make a point of having dinner here every time we visit Penticton. Location is walking distance from a lot of hotels, but not right in crowded downtown area. No tourist trap here!
My husband and grandkids have the lasagna everytime, I like to try their specials and always enjoy the warm bread with oil and balsamic to dip, and start with their Caesar salad.
Service is always excellent.
If weather is decent we enjoy sitting outside by the very real grapevines giving nice shade and privacy from the street.
They do have a really nice wine list, but unless it’s a special occasion we usually just order a carafe of the house red which is decent.
The creme brûlée is perfect, so save room!
It was nice. Lovely service, good food
We celebrated our anniversary and had a fabulous night. Fantastic service from everybody! We greatly appreciated the anniversary wishes & complimentary glasses of Prosecco to welcome us. Food was amazing as was the ambience at our cozy table with lovely background music. Thank you Villa Rosa!
Service and Food are always very tasty !! Every time we have dinner out at Villa Rosa we are never disappointed !!
A wonderful dining experience starting from the moment we stepped in the door. The food was outstanding!
The food was good. The service was excellent. The noise level was a bit high due to a lot of country and western music fans eating before a concert at the events centre but it was a good restaurant. We will be back.
The food was very tasty. Everything on the menu is good. Waitress was a perfect balance of helpful, friendly but not intrusive. It was just a little dark and we had trouble reading the menus but that was a minor concern compared to how great the food and service were.
One of our Favorite restaurants in Penticton. Great food, awesome service, professional staff
A Penticton BC Italian gem. Terrific meal and service. Had to grab one of their cookbooks when we were there! Delish.
The service was great, we loved the food and the ambiance. The music was a little loud but other then that it was just great. Very romantic.
food was very fast that early in evening. good service and decor
We were vacationing in Kelowna, BC and came upon the Villa Rosa Restaurant, so glad we stopped.
Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Would definitely return.
It was our first wedding anniversary and after all the other restaurants we wanted to go to were closed we decided to go to villa Rosa. Sceptical on thinking it would be super expensive to our surprise it was reasonably priced for the fine dinning experience we received. Food was amazing, service was spectacular, and the ambiance was the romantic touch we needed!! We will be frequenting the Villa more often!! See you again soon guys!
Beautiful place, excellent food and service!
Definitely would attend again in the area
First time to this restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food. We’ll definitely be back.
We were having a wonderful time with friends at the Villa Rosa UNTIL a couple arrived with a VERY noisy baby. It was impossible to hear the conversation across our table for four and it changed the wonderful ambience that we were experiencing immediately. Not just for us but for every single person in the room. I understand this happens sometime but the screaming went on way too long and the restaurant manager did not seem to do anything about suggesting that maybe this type of restaurant was not suitable for a screaming baby at 8:30/9 pm. It was very unfortunate as we highly recommended Villa Rosa and our guests were not impressed and probably would not go back there if they were visiting Penticton in the future.
Villa Rosa is a consistently wonderful restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine. Our dinners were absolutely delicious and the service was terrific. Highly recommended!
Great food and great service.location is good easy to find.
Service was great but unfortunately the food was mediocre. Nothing special. We shared three different dishes and kept our hopes up with each new dish but will not be going back. It’s too bad because all the staff were very friendly and welcoming.
