During their bi-annual Wine Festivals, Villa Rosa Ristorante Italiano hosts exclusive dinners paired with offerings from top Okanagan wineries. Luckily, Villa Rosa's Italian feasts aren't just available at these exciting events?the eatery's cooks use Okanagan Valley ingredients in their Italian-inspired dishes year-round, including amazingly fresh produce and world-class quality wine. Since opening in 1996 at the same location they occupy today, Villa Rosa has built a strong reputation in the area by offering consistently great food.
Garlicky lemon-cream sauce coats tiger prawn appetizers, while marsala wine reductions flavour cuts of Villa Rosa's signature grilled lamb chops. Pasta-wise, cooks toss baby Caribbean lobster with linguini and saut? fusilli with blends of basil pesto and white wine; they even whip up gluten-free versions of every pasta dish. To complement meals, bartenders supply a steady stream of reds and whites sourced from Italy and local wineries.
