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.

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 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!

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.

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!

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.

Too much garlic overpowered the food. They did not have 2 of our choices on the wine list and what they suggested was not good. The salad had no dressing to speak of and we had to ask for more.

Our evening was lovely. My sisters (2 of them) were visiting my husband and I. We decided to go out for dinner to celebrate this very special occasion. We were more than pleased with our service and the food...everything was perfect. The only complaint would be the noise. The restaurant was full and all the customers chatting happily...so it became quite loud. Happy customers are a good thing...not sure what the restaurant can do about the noise level...perhaps we should have gone on a week night (rather than a Saturday) and hoped for a less busy evening.

It was very good food but too loud and too many flies. The dish I ordered was linguini with crab and shrimp and although crab meat was already mixed in with the pasta there were 2 small pieces of crab leg that I had to break open myself to get to the meat, pretty messy and if I was there on a date I wouldn’t have done it

We read some critical reviews but decided to try it regardless. My wife and I were staying in Naramata celebrating our 25th anniversary and were looking for a low key but nice place to celebrate. We sat on the patio and though it was very busy, we could still have a normal conversation without raising our voices. We found the food to be very good but the star of the evening was the amazing service. Cailan was outstanding and made our evening very special. Thank you so much for that Cailan and Villa Rosa! I highly recommend this restaurant for good food and great value!
