Well we had to wait about 40 minutes for a table and now we see why. The salad bar was big and had just about everything you would want at a salad bar. The meal was delicious and you get plenty of food, unlike a lot of places that have cut down to worse than european servings. I would eat... More

We were only two so our wait was a little shorter than some with larger groups. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The salad bar has a great variety of items. And their vegetarian minestrone smelled delicious. The fettuccine alfredo was delicious. We also ordered their lasagna, which was delicious too. They serve large portions. We had three meals... More

Wondered in in to this great restaurant on a tip from Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Huge portions of really good food. Very nice bar area adjacent to large dining area. The Lasagna and fettuccine were very good and large enough to share. Pizza was thin type and very good. The real star of this restaurant is its yummy... More

The restaurant was packed but I can only describe my meal as average. The portions are huge by the way so what ever you go for could be shared. We boxed ours and heated it the next day for lunch.

When I knew we were coming to Tahoe this year all I could talk about was going to Tep's. I picked up all the free newspapers, magazines etc. but no coupons. I also tried to find... More

Excellent food! Great Service. Facility is a little aged, but very clean. I don't think it offers the romantic environment I was expecting for Lake Tahoe views. I would eat there again.

They serve a LOT of food here. Entrees include bread, and a trip to the salad/soup bar. The entrees are huge too. Be sure to go hungry. The place was packed when we arrived, so we had drinks at the bar while we waited. Bartender was friendly, and drinks were good. We walked over from the Best Western Station House,... More

We went to Villa Roma after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. We found the service to be above average. The salad bar was one of the best we've experienced in the past few years. The entrees were steaming hot when delivered to our table. My husband had the baked penne and I had chicken parmagiana. The sauce on both was... More
