I visited here with my mother and aunt on a road trip through Oregon, California and Nevada. Twain Harte was somewhere I picked, at random, on the map and I wasn't disappointed. Villa D'Oro is a lovely place with a fantastic atmosphere as the dusk arrives and the lights come out to play. The service was good but not amazing... More

The Villa D'Oro has an evening special three-or was it four?- course menu from which diners choose from three or four offerings.for appetizer, salad, main course and dessert. Hard to choose, everything sounded wonderful, and my pork tenderloin certainly was. Everyone at the table chose differently, and we all expressed our complete satisfaction with our choice. How happy can you... More

We can always be sure of a nice glass of wine, a meal prepared with good fresh ingredients and care in cooking and preparation, and a friendly greeting at the door. Continental dining with an Italian flavor, and good variety of choices, they have a pizza oven on the patio, and nice pasta choices as well. Make a reservation, though,... More

The best Italian food I have ever eaten. The atmosphere is nice and sitting outside is a must in good weather. It's a family owned business and they really care about their customers dining experience. I give it 2 thumbs up!

A Birthday dinner. Didn't meet my expectations. Two of us ordered the seafood cioppino. The sauce was not eaten. Very, very salty and too thick. The cioppino was served with slices of french bread with spicy pesto sauce on top. Cioppino is very spicy so the french bread should be warm and be able to soak up the cioppino sauce... More

I grew up really close to Italy and this place does not serve Italian food. The menu hardly offers seafood or something without heavy cheese, butter or cream. The portions are too big and after eating there I could not sleep, even I went skiing before. So be really hungry or rather stop somewhere else.

Really good selection, if you like garlic, the garlic soup is a must. Large portions, if you are not super hungry you may want to share!

We had an excellent dinner this weekend. Was able to make the early bird special which is certain dishes that also include a non or alcoholic drink and dessert. We had the clams for an appetizer and they were perfect. The atmosphere was great and the owner always goes out of his way to make your night special. Ask for... More
