Our last evening in South Lake Tahoe we wanted a nice meal, so we were debating between Scuza Italian Ristorante and Tep's Villa Roma. We ended up choosing Tep's. Bad call. The place is old with a disgusting feel about it, carpet and bathroom is dirty, and the food is awful. Service was ok. On our way to be seated... More

My wife and I visited this amazing restaurant with eight other family members. The service was outstanding and the food was over the top. We split an entree and along with the salad bar, had more than enough to eat.

While visiting Lake Tahoe we always eat dinner at Tep's Villa Roma. The food is consistently good. They have friendly service and it is a nice restaurant. They have huge portions so my husband and I usually share a meal and order an extra salad bar. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars because this year my son... More

Best dinner for quality and quantity we've had all week. There is a wonderful salad bar included with all entrees. The portions were large and tasty. We have two nights left in Tahoe and we've planned one of those dinners at Villa Roma. The service was also exceptional.

This is a true family style restaurant with a huge menu of all the classics, featuring melt-in-your-mouth tortellini alfredo and hearty baked ravioli, which is why I'm rating it 4 stars. However, service was very slow, inattentive (but they were extremely busy, so OK). Main complaint is that salad bar really needs help - messy, old vegetables, limited selection. Soup... More

Been to this restaurant 3 or 4 times in the past couple of years. While the salad bar is nice, the entrees leave much to be desired. Average at best. These are few Italian restaurants in this area, but my lasagne and pastas at home are better (my best friend is 1sr generation Italian/American). Sorry, just can't recommend.

Family of three, drove down to the restaurant without reservation, fairly large restaurant, 30 minutes wait at the bar, free internet helped kill the wait time, friendly host lead to our table, quick order, quick service, sumptuous portions, a nice satisfying dinner.

Hostess was not very friendly but don't let that stop you...the food is delicious and the salad bar was full of variety that was also very delicious. Would definately recommend this place and the price was great for all entrees including the salad bar.

Great food, excellent salad bar and the service was on point. This was such a great find we had dinner for two for under $50. In Lake Tahoe you are lucky to find anything reasonably priced and this place was great

Oh what a wonderful place. The service and the food are equally fantastic. I got the lasagna and if I could eat more I would have ordered another. Plus the salad bar and rolls are outstanding. My kids got manicotti for the first time and they loved it all. The place has a nice ambiance too.

Thank Matthew C
