We stumbled into this restaurant after an event at the Peach Festival. The restaurant was absolutely full with other t-shirt clad tourists like us, but it obviously aspires to be a higher end eatery. I won't say much about the food other than it was...More

On a family trip we stopped at the first restaurant we saw, and this was it. There was a 30 minute wait but it smelled good when we walked in so we stayed. Many others were also waiting - I'd suggest reservations. Service through the...More

We were in town for an event and walked to the restaurant, a pleasant. Distance. The food was very good as expected from the various reviews. The service was good and we were pleased at the emphasis on local wines.

We went here for an anniversary and the service was friendly however the server was very slow to come back and check on us. The pastas we ordered we're tasty however they were bland. Seasonal cheesecake was phenomenal!

We had reserved through Open Table with the Trip Advisor app. It was busy and since we were early, the staff did their best to accommodate us. After a short wait, we were seated. Service was congenial but lacked quality check-ins, so the Caesar salad...More

I have never thought of Penticton as a fine dining destination but after 2 evenings of great dinners, the first at Villa Rosa, I may have to revise my opinion. We lucked into Villa Rosa because we felt like eating Italian and it had a...More

The tables were well spaced in the attractive patio. Occasional road noise. The service was friendly, correct and timely. The caprese tomatoes and mozz were tasty, couldn't find the basil. The pastas, fettuccine and tortellini, were mediocre. Peppercorn sauce on beef tasted as though from...More

First and foremost, I can't get over the few negative reviews of Villa Rosa on here. My guess is it was an extremely rare one off or it's someone who's standards are so exceptionally high that they can never be pleased. Villa Rosa is by...More

This restaurant was very slow service on the day we went. The Mista salad was a bit dry and not that flavourful. For example, the tomatoes weren't ripe, which is odd considering in the middle of August in Penticton you should be able to find...More

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.

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!!
