Description: Villa Rosa Ristorante opened its doors in the Spring of 1996 in our same original location, right here at 795 Westminster Avenue West. In Beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Over the years we have built our reputation by offering consistently great food with an extensive local BC and Italian wine list. Together they truly compliment our atmosphere and make for a unforgettable experience.The Okanagan has been very good to us over the years in both providing world-class quality wine and the most amazing fresh produce possible, as well as a tremendous amount of guests over the years, many who have also become great friends!!

“ A really nice evening out ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

My wife and I snuck off for date night and chose Villa Rosa. We've been before and had mixed experiences. Never anything really bad, just that you have high expectations when you're paying prices at the high end of what restaurants charge in Penticton. This time, the food was very good. I had the Bombay Curry Veal dish and it was lovely. These folks know how to make a sauce , though be prepared that most of their red sauces are on the sweeter side. The service, as always, was excellent. They really are attentive and make sure you're well taken care of. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a romantic feel. It is a small space and gets a little noisy, but not so much that you can't enjoy a good conversation. I would definitely recommend Villa Rosa for a nice adult evening out.

“Terrible pasta at a huge pricetag.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We recently brought out of town guests for dinner at Villa Rosa, we ordered pasta with lobster and crab...when the dish came the presentation was terrible ( lack of)...then upon eating it ...no flavour, very little lobster and no crab to be found. For 2 cups of pasta for $26, I would have expected at the most some flavour. We also had mushroom ravioli which was tasty but very overpriced...only two ravioli for $8. On the upside of the evening the waitress was fantastic, funny, lighthearted and a real pleasure. We should have complained but didn't ...we just won't be returning.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had a lovely meal and evening out at the restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day. Not a huge restaurant, but big enough, yet feels cozy. Food is very delicious, and the the service better than most. The table was dressed well with actual wine glasses, linen, clean cutlery, and large plates. I would recommend a dinner out here to anyone, but be cautioned, prices are a little more than one would anticipate.

The food is very good, but a little lean on quantity. Vegetables on my huge plate consisted of 3 sticks of asparagus, not a favorite of mine, but still good. A more few more vegetables and a neutral selection would improve things. Well worth it overall.

When the restaurant was full it was VERY noisy. Could hardly hear our server discuss the menu, I mean we don't really know what she said! I ordered a dessert and she either forgot or did not hear me :( Not sure why the noise carries so much, but it is loud! When the place emptied out the noise level dropped and was much better. Definitely something to watch for when reserving a time to eat.

Go try it and enjoy yourself. We won't go every week, but a couple of times a year for sure on special occasions.

“Happy Customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We where taken 2 our table pleasantly and promptly. Our server was informative and helpful in our dinner selections. The water in our glasses was never empty and the timing of our dishes was perfect. Each dish was very tasty and we ate everything that was served. We were full but when dessert was served we found room for it and it tasted so good that it left us wanting more. The pricing was reasonable and the whole experience was memorable. We plan to return in the near future.
