Food is always good here. My son says the best Italian ever.

We have come here over the years and we have never been disappointed. My son had meat tortellini with alfredo sauce. They were delicious. I stuck with fettuccine alfredo. My friend had spaghetti and meat ravioli with Marinara sauce. It was also very good. Sometimes Marinara sauce is bitter... read more

This was such a good place to have dinner after a long day of wedding venue hunting! We did find out that they do have an event room and do catering! Yummy!

Took the family out for dinner. It was my son's birthday and his choice. He loves this place. The dinner comes with an extensive salad bar and minestrone soup. The entrees are healthy portions and a good value. Had the Osso Buco myself, and everyone enjoyed their entrees. It is a place we will visit often.

Great salad/antipasto bar with meals---fair wine bottle prices. Food was AMAZING!! had the salmon, and also the lasagna at the table-----yummy!!!!! will definitely go on every visit to Tahoe. Great choice. The tiramisu... More

We have been coming to Tahoe for years, but this was the first year we ate at Teps. We have missed out. The salad bar was the biggest I have ever seen, everything very fresh. My chicken parm was wonderful ( and big). Our friend, who never orders fish in a restaurant, decided to order salmon when my husband did.... More

We have been coming here for almost 20 years. The last several visits the service had gone from painfully slow to neglectful. $50 for three people and all we drank was water, well, the one glass that we were able to get that is. The restaurant only had three tables occupied but the waitress wad far more interested in talking... More

If you like Italian food look no further. We ate here several times during our holiday to South Lake Tahoe and every time was excellent. All the staff are great and Chris deserves a special mention, every meal we had here (and there were four of us) was cooked to perfection. If you are in South Lake Tahoe don't miss... More

I've been coming to South Lake Tahoe for skiing many, many years and have always looked forward to a visit to Villa Roma. In the past the food was outstanding, impressive salad bar, good value, and hence long waits to get in. This year we were seated in a half-empty restaurant right away. Looking at the menu I saw prices... More

Visited TEPs Villa Roma again this year on our skiing vacation. Salad bar was good, but soup average. Last time I had the chicken dish which was smothered with tomato and in my mind spoiled the dish, but most of our party had the lasagne which seemed to go down well, so this year I went for the lasagne, but...
