we enjoyed our meal here. the salad bar was excellent (my husband was in 7th heaven when he discovered it included a big dish of anchoves) and our main courses were very tasty. My only complaint - I have celiac so can't eat pasta and there were no alternatives offered.

After reading reviews, chose to try Tep's. We had spaghetti/meatballs, fettucini, and lasagna. The soup/salad bar had wonderful fresh, choices and could be picked as a sole meal choice. However there are many items on the menu that for a dinner + bar are only a few dollars more.
I tend to enjoy lots of spice & garlic...and found the food to be a little bland.
We were pleased with the value of our meal. Our waitress was very helpful, even suggesting which dish was better when I couldn't chose between two.
Atmosphere is casual - although we saw a small wedding party as we entered. Tables are close together and the space got louder as more people arrived.

I LOVED THIS RESTAURANT. I am a huuuge fan of Italian Food and also am very fussy and like my food to be spot on... I came here twice... would have been more if I had more time in Lake Tahoe but both times, service, atmosphere, food EVERYTHING was perfect. Staff were polite and helpful and the entire place is so lovely. My only confusion was the salad bar... salad was beautiful and fresh and with a variety of choice. I could not believe how reasonably priced it is too, just shows you can have amazingly good quality food for a reasonable price. we did get very confused with the dish system... there are bowls for soup and in a very obvious place there is a fridge with plates for the rest of the salad. Sorry we ended up using the soup bowls...ooops... but we had been told there was a fridge with plates so that was entirely our fault. Pasta was cooked to perfection and was so fresh and packed with flavour. I was so surprised about the variety of the menu too.. there was something for everyone. I Love Tahoe, I cant wait to go back and One of my first places I want to go... Villa Roma... I would reccomend this restaurant to anyone. No matter who you are or what your tastes are, there will definately be something on the menu you will love eating.

We were looking for a dinner spot quite late on a Monday evening (8:30pm). Tep's was open so we stopped in. My only complaint was the bread they served was old and very hard. It was soft when they first brought it out but it quickly cooled and turned into a brick. Other then that, we did enjoy the food. My friend had lasagne which was very good, and the salad bar was pretty well stocked and fresh, considering they were getting ready to close. Worth a visit.
