Good italian food, good service

It was our first night in South Lake Tahoe and we were looking for a place with good food and easy access so we could wind down from travelling. Tep's fit the bill. Nice selection of dishes and wines and the service was very pleasant. My husband had veal and I had the cioppino. The veal was... read more

Location of this restaurant is also very convenient- you can’t miss it when you are on Lake Tahoe Blvd. Lake front is across the road from this place, just 200 meters on the left. You can even take away and enjoy your meal on Lake Front. Its an old restaurant with very cozy interior. This is an Italian restaurant with... More

Had a small early breakfast and was ready 4 an early dinner. Tep's opens at 4 pm and we were one of the first few through the door. Great salad bar - everything was fresh. It is more like a meal in itself as they offer pepperoni, ham, anchovies, beets, beans, different greens and homemade minestrone soup. Along with the... More

We have been eating at this restaurant every year that we come to South Lake Tahoe and until this year have never been disappointed. Unfortunately I ordered the Parmesan encrusted Trout and found it to be, at best, tasteless. With that exception I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Found this charming restaurant by accident and am so glad that I did! The food was delicious and not overpriced. The salad bar with soup and breadsticks was also delicious. Staff was super friendly and the ambiance made for an unexpected happy date night! Highly recommend this restaurant!

5 August 2015 - The antipasto/salad bar was, for me (she), the best part of the meal, and reasonable at $11 without a main course. 'He' ordered a main course and the antipasto/salad bar was included. The 'freshly-grated' cheese at the salad bar had 0 flavor. The main course, eggplant rollatini, was so thinly sliced that all we could find... More

We make it a point when we visit Lake Tahoe to stop at Villa Roma. Hard to remember how many years we have stopped at Villa Roma, but in all the years we have never been disappointed! Food is excellent, service is great! They include an ample salad bar with your entree.

This welcoming establishment serves yummy old-school Italian and has a delicious salad bar. I ordered the lasagna (+ salad bar) and got two more meals out of the entree, the portion was so generous. Delicious.

What a fabulous Italian family-style restaurant. Informal and unpretentious. More food than one can eat, but give it a try. The food was excellent plus a great salad bar. Reasonably priced and VERY attentive and friendly service (our server was Jamie...she was terrific!). We'd had a before dinner drink in the bar, and told the bartender we were in town... More

Delicious! We knew we wanted Italian for dinner and so we just kept driving util we drove by something. We certainly ended up at the right spot; Tep's was exactly the dinner we wanted! I ordered the baked ravioli (and they did half cheese and half meat for me, which I appreciated) and my husband enjoyed the pasta dish that... More
