I don't even know if words can describe how amazing this place is!! The atmosphere was very welcoming and a little romantic. The staff were very friendly, and the food... oh gosh!! I still dream about it!! We LOVE the salad and anti-pasta bar that you can enjoy while you wait for your food, and it's all fresh!! No wilting... More

Tep's Villa Roma 7/11/14 Dined here two years ago when we visited Tahoe at that time we had a coupon for a free appetizer. 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

Atmosphere was good; nice salad bar and great menu variety. The servings were large and the bread was fresh. Good wine selection and reasonably priced. Left very full and with leftovers. Good friendly service as well.

We went to Tep's after reading the other reviews posted here and are glad we did. Food was great, homemade sauces, large portions, nice salad bar. Wife went for portobello mushroom and I had linguine with clam sauce. Both were terrific: portobello nicely cooked, and clam sauce reminded me of Umbertos in NYC. We defiantly would go back, and highly... More

We had dinner here before a backpacking trip - thought extra carbs would help us. Both meals were tasty and well-prepared, and our server was very attentive. I would go there again!
