Great service topped only by great food. Easy to locate right off Hwy 89 on Deerfield. Plenty of parking. Full menu and great combo pizza- gastronomique. Never had to ask for more water or beverages. Comfortable tables with plenty of space. Will be back!!

We wanted to treat our friends we were staying with nearby to dinner and one of them suggested this place, saying it was not so much a tourist trap like many of the other places in Truckee - he should know; he's worked in Truckee for about 15 years, and neither was it overpriced. So we agreed, pizza sounded good, and am I ever glad we came here! The five of us got a rounded booth and drinks orders were taken right away, and drinks delivered. The two of us who'd never been there took some time to study the menu - there was so much on it, and by no means only pizza - this is a fully-fledged Italian restaurant rather than 'just' a pizzeria. I learned that originally they were about half the size of the current operation, the other half of the building being occupied by a different business. But they were so successful they decided to expand across the whole building. We were early-ish, and soon the place was absolutely full.
One of my friends ordered a special appetizer with pesto and cheese. It looked like a pizza, in a way and we all shared it, and it was delicious! My husband had ordered fried shrimps as a started, and those, too, were divine.
Three of us had the Chicken Marsala as an Entrée, one Grilled Chicken Salad and one Pasta dish – enormous portions and absolutely delicious! We had a few desserts which we shared – more culinary bliss. Everything was just simply great, and the service was super friendly, attentive and prompt. I very highly recommend this lace and will most definitely go there again next time I’m in Truckee.

We were in Truckee last weekend for one night only on our way further north. The owner of the B&B we stayed in recommended Village Pizzeria after we talked about how much we love pizza and how hungry we were. When we arrived, every table was taken (good sign) so we sat at the bar, which we like to do anyway. We ordered the Ciao pizza (spinach, tomatoes, garlic) and a couple of beers. The pizza arrived in good time, looked beautiful, and had the perfect scent of garlic. VP did not scrimp on the toppings - the spinach was piled high and the tomatoes were spread out all over. The crust was just right too. Added to all this was the friendly service - the son-in-law of the owners was standing in as bartender and did a great job. If we stayed another night we would probably have gone back to try another pie. Yum!

Other guests at our timeshare told us to be sure and check this restaurant out for pizza. My husband had a calzone and the rest of us had pizza. Large servings, very tasty and the employees are exceptional friendly. We returned the night before we flew home. Glad we gave it a try.

I visited VP several years ago, and it left a good impression on me. On a recent visit two days before Christmas, VP did not disappoint.

Pros: garlic and pesto chips; pepperoni pizza; good selection of beet
Cons: older establishment, but this adds to the charm
