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!!

The prawn appetizer was swimming in an amazing sauce. The Villa Rosa Fettucine has a distinct, wonderful flavour. The service was outstanding, especially Tyler. I cannot wait to go back and try other dishes because each one that passed us looked intriguing.

We asked two locals to suggest a good Italian restaurant and bot came up with this one. The food was good and even though I made a mistake in my order, the staff were kind enough to put it right and change it for me, making my last night in the Okanagan just that little bit special and avoiding a...

My wife and I wanted to have a full meal prior to going to the Def Leopard concert. Villa Rosa did not disappoint. The portions are ample and the food is cooked to perfection. I had the seafood pasta. I did find it a little on the fishy side, and would have preferred to see it served with an alfredo... More

We had a 6:30 reservation. When we arrived the restaurant was about 3/4 full. The first waitress came and introduced herself but never came back. Finally another came and took our order. 40 minutes later our appetizers came. Well one came, the salad had been forgotten so we had to wait for that. By now the place was 100% full.... More

Everyone knows pasta should be al dente except for them. The vegetables had seen better days and were tasteless the Marsala was a thick goopy sauce over a piece of leather called veal. I don't know how they won an award and getting away with charging the prices they do!

Although in the middle of BC, the seafood was as good as I remember when I lived on the West coast & caught it myself!

This is a nice little restaurant with nice decor. I had the tortellini romano and it was great. The portion sizes are healthy, my wife wasn't even able to finish her half order of linguini. It made for a nice lunch the next day. The only negative comment I have is one of the people at my table found a... More

We enjoyed our evening out at Villa Rosa. We had a reservation but when we arrived apart from our table waiting for us the room was full. The acoustics did not seem capable of handling that crowd too well so seeing how it was a nice evening we sat out on the patio which was nice too. We had great... More

I got a groupon and had another enjoyable meal at Villa Rosa. The chicken prawn special was amazing. The first bottle of wine was corked but there was no issue with it and we purchased another bottle. Service was attentive and prices are reasonable.
