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 were their for Valentines. Excellent service. Not as cozy as would like re being more private or more distance between tables.
I would comment on the noise level as it was fairly loud due to being a full restaurant, however some simple things re less reflection of sound would go a long way in reducing that and making it a dining experience to enhance a romantic diner for 2. Or a family dinner. Found each other at time not even able to hear the back ground music not ourselves talking to each other.

My husband and I went for an early Valentine's day dinner, and it was absolutely delicious! Our service was outstanding, and the food was to die for! I can not wait to go again. Thank you Villa Rosa for the fabulous evening, and exquisite dining experience ❤

My wife and I very much enjoyed her birthday dinner at Villa Rosa Ristorante in Penticton BC on Sun Feb 9/20. It was our first time there and from minute # 1 to leaving - our experience was excellent. Our Server, Stef rates the highest marks, friendly, helpful, knows her job and the menu. Owner stopped by and chatted. Food and service was superb. Will definitely return and highly recommend Villa Rosa.

We both had the Dine Around Okanagan menu with wine pairing. Highly recommend the $45 3-course menu, excellent value and delicious food choices. The wine pairing was perfect! Thanks Tyler for another very enjoyable evening at Villa Rosa!

The Villa Rosa is one of the last "fine dining" establishments in our area. Lovely linen tablecloths and napkins, subtle lighting, background music, delicious food and an amazing wait staff. The owner still walks around to all the tables talking to his guests and gives your that feeling of truly "dining out in style".

The food selection is amazing, the presentation beautiful and the taste wonderful. They even have a cookbook available for anyone who wants to recreate their meal at home. Villa Rosa has an extensive wine list as well.

A wonderful restaurant!

Came here with my mother for my birthday dinner. Was treated so well from when we walked in to when we left. Funny and friendly man greeted us and the service was excellent. Food is divine and they even wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate drizzle accompanied by a sparkler. Will dine again!

Always our “go to” when we come to Penticton.
My husband loves the lasagna, I have lots of things I like on the menu! (Too many great things to mention them all)
Most recently I had the chicken Parm but subbed gnocchi for pasta and asked for the spicy tomato sauce to change it up, so good! Also I was surprised when I first saw BOMBAY DI VITELLO on menu, as it doesn’t seem very Italian, but it was amazing! It’s got veal, crab and prawns in a creamy curry sauce!
We always start with a Caesar salad, a liter of house red, and they bring warm bread with balsamic and oil to start everyone off. Oh, and lots of different appies to pick from, and for dessert, Creme brûlée is always so good.
It’s worth seeking this out, located close to casino and arena

This is our favourite Italian restaurant in Penticton. We have never been disappointed. Service & Food always excellent. Great wine selection. Their recommendations are always perfect for us. Portion are plentiful so they have 1/2 orders for smaller appetites. I’ve recommended this restaurant to friends & family.

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!

8 of us came in before a concert. The restaurant was very busy. I originally was worried we wouldn’t have enough time etc but the restaurant WOW’d us! The staff anticipated a busy night and were prepared. The dinners were all top notch and we never had to ask for drinks. We had a great night and I would recommend this restaurant over and over! There was something for every budget and all of us were delighted with our dining!

We will be back!

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

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.
