The first time I ate at Tep's was 37 yrs ago. Many other restaurant's have come and gone. Tep's is still here. That's saying something! The food is delish, portions are large, and prices are very reasonable. This is a great place for just the 2 of you, or the 2 of you, and all of your friends! Good food,... More

We like going to Tep's especially when they run their coupon in the coupon book (Two for one entrees). The best thing at the restaurant is the all you can eat soup and salad bar. It is always fresh but not always kep enticing. Time before last, I had the lasagna. You have a choice of traditional or vegetarian. It... More

Good food, good service, long wait during popular times. We had a party of 15 and waited for over an hour. They do not take reservations.

We've been to Tep's many times and will continue to enjoy this South Shore fixture. They have an extensive salad bar that can be your main course or the prelude to one of their fantastic dinners. The eggplant rototini (? spelling) and the veal piccata are my favorites. We knew this was the place to go for a good meal... More

We were looking for a local place with a range of menu choices, easy access to where we were staying, and couldn't have done better than Tep's. I had veggie primavera which was deliciously prepared and a very generous portion. Husband had eggplant rolatini (stuffed with spinach and ricotta) which he loved. The all u can eat salad bar is...

We have been guests at Tep's Villa Roma for over 13 years, and have always had an exceptional meal. The salad bar is exceptional, and almost a full meal in itself. The entrees are delicious. I had the meat ravioli and found the portion to be just enough. My son had spaghetti (angel hair pasta) with meatballs, and found this... More

I do not eat at the buffets. Cost too much and I don't eat that much. I was referred to this restaurant by a local as it is not real close to any of the casinos. There food is not your typical chain Italian restaurant. You get a salad and soup bar with your meal. A salad bar as big... More

This is very good food. Probably the best in the South Lake Tahoe area. The service is very fast and good but there is no rush to get you out the door. We will be back
