One of the things we’ve been looking for since we moved to the Okanagan is a good Italian restaurant with reasonable prices. We’ve found it in Villa Rosa. We were very happy with both the tasty food and the friendly service. We’ll definitely be back!

Sorry, I wasn't in the loop with trip advisor for a while. Yes reservations are a good idea but we have gone a few times without. Its an ideal location for dinner if you are attending anything at the Okanogan Event Center.

I know of no contest to win a dinner for two. I used a Groupon which was offered a while back which basically gave me a dinner for two for the price of one.
