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

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
