I visited this highly recommended establishment tonight with my wife. We had not made a reservation but they were kind enough to offer us a table in the farthest corner of the patio, despite several other tables being available. Service was terribly slow but our server was extremely polite and well mannered. My wife's lemon chicken dish was terrible and... More

We used to go to this restaurant every time we were in Penticton but haven't been in the area for about 15 years. Really glad to find that this restaurant is still open and offering fine Italian meals. The service was excellent and the menu choices were just what we were looking for. Nice wine menu as well with international... More

Corrine (or Corey) was our server and she was wonderful. So helpful - let us sample the wine she suggested which was excellent. She is one of the best waitpersons we have encountered. The food was good too. Outdoor area was a bit noisy but the service made up for that.

The fried oyster was excellent, pan fried veal was too lemony (sour), ossobuco had too much tomato sauce and was tough (certainly not slow-cooked), shrimp pasta was very good. Service was excellent.

I had their signature VR Chicken and Shrimp with mushrooms - at least that's what the menu said it was; I couldn't tell by the taste. It was so spicy that the only discernible flavor was "hot". My eyes told me I was chewing on a shrimp, by tastebuds were too fried to know. Worse yet, when I told the... More

Only complaint was my gin n soda was very watery and tasted quite bland, I don't think there was much gin in... More

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!!
