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

We had a lovely dinner. It was our anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised when the waitress brought us a complimentary glass of Prosecco. The next time we're in Penticton, we'll definitely go to Villa Rosa again.

Vila Rosa is our go to place for celebrations. We were greeted by name and shown to the table of our choice. There is nothing we would like to see different. The evening special was outstanding.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were given a complimentary glass of champagne. Very nice gesture. We have been here many times and are never disappointed.

We were in town for a soccer tournament and wanted to support a small local business. This restaurant was a wonderful surprise. The staff were very personable and professional. The restaurant was comfortable and tasteful. Except the big purple egg at front could go.😏. Most importantly the food was delicious, hot (pasta) and good portion sizes. Can pick a full or half size which we appreciated. Wine list was good with a few local wineries supported. Next visit to Penticton we'll be back.

Villa Rosa is consistently good and the staff are always fantastic. Tyler the owner and manager is ultimately personable.
There are always specials but the menu has otherwise been the same for a long time. This has its pros and cons, but we always enjoy it. We do consider it special

We had the special, caesar salad, pasta and vegetables were good, but the tenderloin was very dark & covered in a mushroom sauce that was quite salty and my husband wasn't a fan of. I ordered medium rare and it was very cooked and only 3 small thin slices. Maybe 5 oz total? The next day and a half both of us were ill. We don't eat out often so it was likely the meat.

It was our first dining experience at Villa Rosa Ristorante and hopefully not our last. We found the server courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We found the food delicious and the house wine very palatable. The food and service were 100% however there was no privacy or intimacy when it came to our table location and resulting dining experience. Our table was right at the end of the bar backing onto the busy thoroughfare from the kitchen to the dinning room. We felt like we were in the way and should just hurry up, eat up and get out. There ought to be a buffer there. The lack of privacy and noise from the goings on truly deterred from what could have been a fantastic dining experience. Regards. Andrea & André Brind'Amour

Unfortunately we only ordered 2 entrees and skipped appetizers and dessert as we weren’t too hungry. I had linguini with clams. It tasted like canned clams which is very understandable but I thought if the sauce would of been creamier it would of toned down that tinny taste. My husband had rotini(?) with sausage. He was happy with a full portion Still, I thought it needed a creamier texture. Nice fresh bread,

My wife and I were in Penticton for a concert that was due to start in an hour from when we started our dinner. Our server, Steph, was great in her awareness of our time limitations and was appropriately attentive to our needs. We started with escargot, which ironically we couldn't get in the manner we preferred the night before at a French restaurant, and calamari and both were excellent. My wife then had the Veal Fungi and I had the Tortellini Panna for dinner and again both were excellent. The liter of the house Montepulciano was a great accompaniment to our dinners.

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.

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!

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.
