The fried oyster was excellent, pan fried veal was too lemony (sour), ossobuco had too much tomato sauce and was tough (certainly not slow-cooked), shrimp pasta was very good. Service was excellent.

I had their signature VR Chicken and Shrimp with mushrooms - at least that's what the menu said it was; I couldn't tell by the taste. It was so spicy that the only discernible flavor was "hot". My eyes told me I was chewing on...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!!
