Not sure why we had a long wait here for a table. Food was just average. Chicken Cacciatore could use some improvement, had no taste. I expected more.

We attended a wedding reception and were blown away by the quality of food! Best meal that we had our entire stay in Tahoe!

Waited or 25 min for a table, which was not bad, considering they mentioned it would be 25 min. Had a good drink in the bar. Once seated took waiter over 5-10 min to even acknowledge we were there. After that ordered water, didn't get water until food came at quite some time later. Food was good, but not worth... More

My husband used to come here with his Grandpa and introduced me to it a few years ago. The Entrées are great the scampi is so good, but the best part is that it comes with the salad bar. We had our post wedding dinner there and our friends love to visit there when in town now too. The service... More

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.
