Parking small and awkward. Service not lightning fast but friendly enough. Salad bar pretty impressive, soup just ok. Entrees also good if not amazing. Dark funky dining room. Ya, worth a visit with your family, solid value

Lots of food for a good price. Not gourmet but not bad either. Decor is dated. Service was ok. Not bad for a resort town

This has nothing to do with food. My husband and I arrived into Tahoe late on a Thursday evening. We dumped our luggage at the airbnb and walked over to Tep's at around 9:00 at night. They were supposed to close at 10, so we figured no problem. Now understand, this was February and we were walking in about 20*... More

My husband and I decided not to ski our second morning in South Lake Tahoe and drove around, getting a bit of sightseeing in. We thought the architecture of Tep's Villa Roma was cute and it looked as if it had been there quite a few years. It was definitely worth a check out. Upon arriving, we were given a... More

You know maybe it's me. Everyone else really liked their meal. My salmon was only so so. It had nice ambience and you get a nice salad and soup bar to go along with your entrée.

Very nice and cozy place. The food however is uneven. The soup and the overall buffet are excellent, I had a very good lasagna but the gnocchis with eggplant was terrible. The sauce and eggplants tasted just like they were out of a canned box. Good selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle.

We were told about this restaurant by a tram operator and glad of it. The food is great and a good value. First night we were seated by the fireplace. One suggestion is to get there early because there is limited parking. People very friendly and service is good.

If you like mom and pop Italian food this may be the place for you.This restaurant was recommended while riding a chair lift at Heavenly Ski Area. We are from NJ and were craving good food like we are used to. This fit the bill. A great fresh salad bar along with nice service and reasonably priced! Decor is funky... More

Salad bar fruits were a bit stale. App was stuffed mushrooms... tasted like they were taken out of the frozen section of the supermarket. Ordered carbonara and got noodles with italian sausage in white sauce. I was very disappointed but the kids liked it more than me so the average is two stars.
