We drove down from Kelowna to see the John Fogerty show at SOEC and to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. I booked a reservation at Villa Rosa and indicated that it was our anniversary. After being seated we were congratulated and given complementary glasses of champagne. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was very good. After a great and relaxing meal we strolled across the street for the concert. A wonderful evening. Thanks to the staff.

Great food, but the service was very slow. It took quite a while for our order to be taken and a long time for food to arrive when we did just.

Our server was fantastic, and did a great job making suggestions based off our wine preferences and dietary restrictions (celiac). The GF pasta was surprisingly good, and the amore sauce on the feature prawn appy was amazing. Highly recommend the creme brulee for dessert! Our server shared great anecdotes from nearby wineries, and she made recommendations of must-try spots in the area - as we were in town for a wine tour, the tips were appreciated! Great food, great service, and overall we had a wonderful time at Villa Rosa, highly recommend!

I was celebrating a ME weekend in Penticton and had a craving for some good Italian and I got GREAT Italian food and fantastic service and was made to feel very comfortable even if I was dining by myself. I hope to be able to visit again and maybe it will become a yearly tradition as here for the Okanagan Trestles Tour on July 1st. If you like Italian your tummy will be very happy with you :)

Very prompt, excellent service, great food and a nice dining room. Our server was very pleasant, personable and did her job well. It was Elvis Fest and the dining room filled quickly and got a little loud, only because there were so many people there. It's not a big deal and we'll be back for sure.

Nice choice for Italian food while staying on the Naramata Bench, BC.....my husband loved his veal limone and my veal and cheese tortellini was great! We also shared a nice salad. Wine choices were from the local area and were superb. Sweets are not to be missed - tiramisu for my husband and lemon sorbet for me. I would recommend this restaurant while in Penticton area.

This was not our 1st visit to Villa Rosa. In fact on our annual visits to Penticton we make it a point to dine there. Tyler and his staff are very attentive and very knowledgeable about their menus and wine lists. On this occasion we were helped by a delightful server by the name of Cory. Her suggestions for dinner and deserts were spot on. We always enjoy our times at Villa Rosa.

We sat next to a table of 10, 60+ gentlemen who were visiting from out of town and VERY boisterous; perhaps these gentlemen should have been seated on the patio. If it weren't for this scenario, I would give Villa Rosa a 4.5/5. That said, it was just bad timing for our dinner party, and the manager did pour some tasty vintage wine for us... on the house. We also received a free "birthday" dessert.

As always we enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Villa Rosa. It is a wonderful restaurant for a romantic evening, or any kind of celebration. There is even an enclosed patio covered in grape vines.
The food was incredible (it always is); and the servers are courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and happy.
Thank you for a lovely birthday!

Ordinarily, I would give Villa Rosa a 10/10 rating in all respects - food, service, atmosphere. We live in the Lower Mainland, visit Penticton/Summerland several times throughout the year and make a point of eating here often. This past Saturday (04/14), however, our quality of food was sub-par and i was a bit disappointed. The Brie appetizer, that we've had previously, was overheated - the cheese came out like soup, I had the Beef Tenderloin (which was excellent) special - my pasta however, cold at best - another with our party had a pasta entre' that was "warm", my mother and wife each had the Lemon Veal & sauce was too tart (my wife has had this previously as it is a favorite). Our waitress comp'd some dessert to the ladies for the veal, our hostess did replace the "brie" for the appy but overall the experience was less than perfect for what was a 58th wedding anniversary celebration ... again, we have patronized Villa Rosa many times over the years & will do so again. This past weekend, though, for whatever reason was disappointing. All other times, highly rated !

I haven't visited Villa Rosa for a number of years and haven't because of the noise level in your restaurant and I have to say it did not disappoint again if you were looking for a very noisy atmosphere, this is not the fault of the servers or kitchen staff it is a problem with the layout of the main restaurant area. I don't know if the owner has ever pondered the idea of some dividers, not all diners want to basically be sitting at the next table with strangers as the closeness of tables does not provide privacy or ambiance to the dining experience. The staff should be commended for their service and the food was delicious.
