Description: Villa Rosa Ristorante opened its doors in the Spring of 1996 in our same original location, right here at 795 Westminster Avenue West. In Beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Over the years we have built our reputation by offering consistently great food with an extensive local BC and Italian wine list. Together they truly compliment our atmosphere and make for a unforgettable experience.The Okanagan has been very good to us over the years in both providing world-class quality wine and the most amazing fresh produce possible, as well as a tremendous amount of guests over the years, many who have also become great friends!!

I really enjoyed our meal here and the staff were friendly and responsive. I had the Osso Bucco and it was very tasty. My one negative comment is that the prices are a little high for a Penticton restaurant, but I guess they are able to command those prices given the limited number of high end diners in the area.

Villa Rosa is THE address in Penticton for authentic Italian food with a flair for tasty herbs and ingredients. Love their calm atmosphere and friendly staff. Great wine selection from local wineries.

My husband and I had a most delicious meal at this classy Italian restaurant. We had the special New York steak dinner done to our specific desires. The drinks, appetizer, salad, and desserts were something to write home about. We loved the ambience and warm hearted service.

We go to the Villa Rosa regularly and when I searched on Google to confirm that they were open 7 days a week, I saw some scathingly bad comments that shocked me. I have never, that is NEVER, had anything other than an outstanding meal with excellent service at this restaurant. I am not a connoisseur but I have eaten... More

I really wish that small restaurants like Villa Rosa would just say no to wedding parties. We visited on the Saturday night of the Okanagan Wine Festival and their entire covered patio had been closed off for a sizable wedding group. Unbelievable! Needless to say, food service in the main restaurant pretty much came to a standstill as all hands... More

We were told that this was the best Italian restaurant in the Okanagan. Well we were surprised to experience probably the worst Italian restaurant we have been to including Italy, Toronto, Montreal and New York. Wilted salad, watery tomato pasta. Very much overrated.
