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!!

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.

We had a lovely table out on the patio. I had Pasta which was ok but hubby had the prawns and they were to die for. Service was great...we shared Bruschetta and had a bottle of wine, bill was around $90. Will return.

We've been here several times and often have the same mixed results - some dishes are very well done, other not so good. I had the chicken in lemon sauce which was delicious. My wife had a spaghetti with seafood that was not very well presented or tasty - just a bowl with everything mixed into a clump. The service... More

2 years ago we went here 3X in a fairly short visit, and looked forward to returning this year. However, its just not the same...can't quite put my finger on what is different, but for sure it seems that all the staff are different. The owner runs a" tight ship", as we had noted before, but the net result is... More
