We enjoyed our food which was tasty and filling. However we waited an hour for it to arrive and people who had arrived after us were served before us. Mistakes sometimes happen, and I suspect something had gone wrong here, but we should have had an honest explanation. Instead we were told our food was just coming twice (it didn't)... More

This place is no longer in business. When it was the tables were full during the tourist seasons. I did not know why as when I had eaten there the food was either cold or it took forever to get you order. The wait staff did not cater to their customers.

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.
