“Good Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We go to Tep's Villa Roma every time we are in Tahoe area. The restaurant is older, but very clean and cozy with Italian music piped in. Great fireplace in the winter. The food is basic Italian with large portions and very filling for the price. The soup/ salad bar is excellent (all the anchovies you can want!!) The service can be slow at times if the restaurant is full, but overall a good experience.

“An old fashioned family Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Visited Tep's again this year on our annual ski trip. Tep's is a good old fashioned family restaurant that you can go in your ski clothes and feel right at home. The wait staff is friendly and efficient even when it is busy. Great salad bar and eggplant parmesan. My husband ordered his version of pasta, broccoli, olive oil and garlic. His meal arrived exactly as he expected it and he was thrilled. The decor is dated but the service and food is on the mark. A good place to take the kids!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We love Teps and especially love it's wonderful salad bar and rolls they bring immediately. My teens loved the soup and bread that they could get right away while waiting for our fantastic meals. We had everything from chicken and spinach pasta to my son had a special with a chicken parmiagna rolled that he stated was delicious. My daughter and spouse had lasagna and her boyfriend had a seafood pasta that he raved about. We had lots to eat and ate it again for lunch the next day. We had all older children and it was well suited for our group.

I did hear a family complain about not having seating for younger children or children's menu, but they didn't have much control over their children either.

“Your grandparents' restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We ordered out this year, but have dined in before. It is a greta place for customer service and big meals, but more like a Greek owned Italian location than truly Italian. Big salad bar, but food is mediocre
