Old school Italian dining

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

We had dinner here and for two entree's and four drinks, it was $71 w/tip. There is a salad and anti pasta bar that is included as well as bread. The portions were a decent size for the price. Waitstaff was good despite having a large group to take care of.

We intended on eating light and enjoying the extensive salad bar but when we looked at the menu, light eating went by the wayside. We did really enjoy the salad bar because it came with our meal. Lots of choices and soup too. The lasagna was cheesy, meaty loveliness. The spaghetti and meatballs was delish. We also enjoyed the eggplant... More

Though very busy, the service was excellent. The food was good basic Italian fare. I had veal scalopini with a mushroom sauce that was very tasty. Also a great manhattan.

These meals are very tasty. Tep's has been a staple for years in South Lake Tahoe. Different locations but still the same great food! Great restaurant for families and groups.

Great salad bar by it's self, or comes with entree. Wife loves her lasagna, but I wanted to go light this one night. Salad bar with soup and sliced ham pieces to top the salad with was quite good and an ample meal by itself

We love Tep's! Dined there on 7/9/15. It reminds me of Italian family restaurants in Scranton, Pa. and other eastern cities. I had the chicken piccata and my husband had the veal parmasean. Both came with a side of pasta. Huge portions! Go there when you are hungry! Salad bar has many choices. Reasonably priced wines and beers. Great service!... More

This is a nice family restaurant with a full salad bar that comes with the dinners. Prices are not expensive and you get a lot for your money. We usually order a pasta dinner and with the salad bar, end up taking 1/2 of our dinner home for the next day. The tiramisu is homemade and the best I have... More
