One of the things we’ve been looking for since we moved to the Okanagan is a good Italian restaurant with reasonable prices. We’ve found it in Villa Rosa. We were very happy with both the tasty food and the friendly service. We’ll definitely be back!

We have been coming to this fabulous restaurant for the last 3 years while on business in beautiful Penticton, BC. Danielle was awesome!! The food is out of this world and reasonably priced. This is a must if you are in town.

We had high hopes for a family owned Italian Restaurant, but just found that the pasta tasted no different than the boxed stuff my husband makes from time to time. The service was mediocre, nothing special no suggestions or small talk, just took the order...More

Sorry, I wasn't in the loop with trip advisor for a while. Yes reservations are a good idea but we have gone a few times without. Its an ideal location for dinner if you are attending anything at the Okanogan Event Center.

I know of no contest to win a dinner for two. I used a Groupon which was offered a while back which basically gave me a dinner for two for the price of one.

Villa Rosa Ristorante opened its doors in the Spring of 1996 in our same original location, right here at 795 Westminster Avenue West. In Beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Over the years we have built our reputation by offering consistently great food with an extensive local BC and Italian wine list. Together they truly compliment our atmosphere and make for a unforgettable experience.The Okanagan has been very good to us over the years in both providing world-class quality wine and the most amazing fresh produce possible, as well as a tremendous amount of guests over the years, many who have also become great friends!!
