I went here on my own and the institutional style tables and chairs put me off. The so-called salad bar was okay rather than good. I mean who has fake bacon bits! However, I ordered a standard spaghetti bolognese and it came out hot and delicious. It was cheap and cheerful. Cool place. Give it a looksee.

We were recommended this place by a co-worker who had come here on their trip to Tahoe. She was raving about the "all you can eat" antipasto bar, and we all agreed it was quite a plus. The entire family took part in the bar, and trying different entres, everyone enjoyed their meals. The wife and I shared angel hair... More

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.

They are not only willing to make any changes you request but actually happy to help you and want to make sure you love the food you order. And love it we did!!! A large... More
