Our visit to Tep's Villa Roma went very well. the wait staff is friendly and they kept checking to see that we were enjoying our food. The unlimited salad which comes with any entree is HUGE! It could be a meal all in itself. I have a gluten allergy so I ordered their gluten free Pizza Chips, and their zucchini... More

Tep's is a 'no frills', reasonably priced restaurant, with good food, salad bar, and even has a wine list. Sometimes you might even find a 2-fer coupon, which makes for a really good dining deal. Dress is casual, & so is the atmosphere. The staff is friendly. Stop in, you'll be glad you did. We're locals and keep coming back... More

We have been to Tahoe many times and my husband used to live here but never visited. Not wanting to wait for over an hour at other places due to the weekend, we Ventured to Teps. Nice greeting and place to sit during our 20 minute wait. Nice waiter and we enjoyed the salad and soup bar. That was it.... More

I have ALS. So I need to have my entree with lots of sauce. The chicken cacciatore was with bones and I would have made a mess. The waiter suggested I order a pasta dish. You get the salad bar and soup with your dinner. I had angel hair and red clam sauce. It was delicious. My husband had the... More

We happened upon this restaurant when trying to decide where to eat for dinner. At first we thought the front bar area was it, but were then taken to the back where the main restaurant is. The food was delicious and the waiter attentive. We really enjoyed our visit and will return if we get back to the area.

Service and food were excellent. Restaurant environment was ok. Servings are generous...we could have shared a traditional lasagne between two...and it was excellent.

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.

Thank Stephanie M
