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!!

Atmosphere was very nice. Service excellent with our waitress taking back the prime rib and having it prepared again. Somewhat better but still not tender enough. Not enough marbleing. Bread a little stale.

We had just arrived in Penticton and asked our Hotel about Villa Rosa, which we passed on the way in. It was highly recommended, so we went. Delightful surprise to find a Wine and Dine menu and it was good and reasonably priced. I went for the whole meal and was not disappointed in any way. Our server was friendly... More

I ordered the oyster as a starter but it was really not good. Maybe if they put the sauce on the side instead of drenching the fried oyster in it because instead of being crunchy it's soggy. I also got the gnocchi which just did not taste right at all. The actual gnocchi was cooked perfect but the flavor of... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the server was pleasant. Unfortunately the food was not good. My daughter is allergic to crab cakes and fortunately we discovered it had fish before she started to eat. My salad was drenched in balsamic vinegar and the angel hair pasta over cooked . My daughter had ravioli which she enjoyed. Overall a disappointment... More

The Villa Rosa is our go to place for special occasions and to take our out of town company out for dinner. Tyler can always fit us in and the food is always delicious. We were there 3 times in Dec. and it was great every time.

Perfect for date night! The service and food were amazing. We waited a bit long for our appetizer, but not overly long. Tyler came over and took care of it for us! We were very surprised but very happy. The food was great! 10/10

Great restaurant, perfect spot to toast and wait for our Challenge Athletes while they are out on the course! Not far from Oakanagen Lake (walking distance) we head here once everyone is on the running course, and enjoy. Appetizers - the mussels are really good, and the focaccia with brie and garlic is yum. The lamb/lobster cream curry sauce is... More
