Il Villaggio Osteria Ratings and Reviews
While on Vacation at Jackson Hole, we we ...
While on Vacation at Jackson Hole, we went by the reviews to make some dining reservations at local restaurants.
Our first evening was a hit (Piste), where the food was good, and view was amazing. Service was a bit slow, but that was acceptable given our vacation 'mode'.
Il Villaggio looked promising when we first walked in, but far from good once seated. Service was very slow, and the food quality was mediocre at best.
For appetizers we had a mix of cold meats which were poor quality and nothing like described. For our main course, my wife had the ravioli and I the fettuccine. Not only did they look like the (cheap) pre made one buys at the supermarket, but the taste was awful. It almost felt reheated.
My 6 year old daughters didn't even touch their pasta and meatballs, which, if you have kids, is an indicator of the quality and taste.
To accompany dinner we decided to each get a glass of wine. My wife had the Pinot Grigio, and I the Cab. My wife said hers was OK, but mine was about 15 minutes from becoming vinegar. Warm and surely sitting for more than a day, I didn't want to ask for another glass in fear it would have taken an eternity to get a new one, and at that point we were looking forward to going back to our apartment.
We each left more than half our food on our plate and asked for the check. The waiter, oblivious, didn't even ask how our meal was.
I thought it would be impossible to make bad pasta, but I have been proven wrong.

A friend recommended this restaurant to me. It was an outstanding meal. We sat on the patio outside and it was very pleasant. The service was excellent. This was definitely one of the best meals I've had at a restaurant.

I have visited this restaurant many times over the last five years and always found it to be consistently good, not great, but very good. This time I have to congratulate them. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable.
Menu has changed again
So we come here often. Last night we're back for the summer season and discovered that they took our favorite pizza off the menu -- the others are not as good as the Guido Sarducci. Then - we both wanted the chicken entree and were informed that all the chicken had been sold to a large party. On a very limited menu - this was really a bummer. They also removed the calamri salad which I loved. What is up with this Osteria? On a limited menu there is no excuse for not having enough chicken!!

Stick with simple dishes
Pizza is pretty good. Spaghetti Carbonara was topped with burned bacon instead of pancetta. Tuna Tatar was simply not good-avoid it. Endive salad was pretty tasty, but arugula salad was basically just arugula out of the grocery bag with an "ok" dressing and a meager portion of shaved Parmesan. The Gnocchi should be avoided.
Service is friendly.
Wine selection is good.
Menu was Italian with a Western twist (meats, etc.). We were looking for authentic Italian, unfortunately, IVO fell far short of the mark. Risotto was quite hard, charcuterie was fine, but pizza choices were odd with obscene amounts of garlic and crust was only fair. Carbonara was heavier than it should have been. Service was EXCELLENT just wish the food had been better.
Great Place, good food.
Eaten several times a Osteria. Great spot. Love the menu and the vibe. Our waiter was A+, absolutely a gem. Helped us through the menu and wine pairings as a true pro. We had apps, salads, and split an entrée. Nothing stood out as "inspired". (Wish we'd had a pizza!) I'd eaten there several times a few years ago and it was fantastic. Not so great this time - We had a good time - great service, good wine, nice energy to the place.

We loved this place! So much so that we went twice on a four night stay in Jackson Hole. It’s very cozy and comfortable. A little loud with so many large groups, but not uncomfortably so. The food is great. And so is the service. When we didn't care for the first table they offered, the hostess found us something we preferred. When we thanked her, she replied they wanted us to have a good experience at the restaurant and not be unhappy with our seats. Great attitude! And we loved the food. We had the arugula salad, which was very good. And the lasagna -- which was outstanding! This is a must-get dish here!! When our server said the lasagna was a pretty large portion we decided to split it. Not only did they split it in the kitchen — they split the portion before they even baked it, so each of our portions was baked separately in its own baking dish. We’ve never seen this done before. This not only enhanced the dish, it enhanced our opinion of the restaurant even more. We decided to go back two nights later, and as tempted as we were to get the lasagna again, we decided to get the five-cheese white pizza instead. Another winner!
The pizza was undercooked and the chicke ...
The pizza was undercooked and the chicken in the chicken cacciatore was almost non-existent. Chicken is inexpensive and for one of the more expensive entrees, there needs to be a more generous portion. It seems like it lost a step or two in the last year
Was looking forward to this restaurant because it sounded similar to a couple Italian restaurants we love in Philly. We were not impressed. When offered a primi and secondi course, the portion size is normally not huge. This place the primi was huge! SO huge, that we were not hungry for more. We felt very rushed. Also, the tables were very crowded. Would not go back.
Sad and disappointed.
We received a gift certificate for xmas. Having not eaten there before, we chose Osteria. Our seating was at 5:45, the restaurant was not nearly full. Our waiter was professional and friendly (that was the positive part of the evening). He warned us about the cabbage roll, which we ordered anyway. It was way too spicy to enjoy, albeit arriving quite quickly. Then it was an interminable wait to salads, which were under dressed. Then another interminable wait for our main course. We both commented about leaving. So much time went by that the three tables seated well after us were already on their dessert as our food arrived. The food smelled wonderful! Taste? BLAND. The Ravioli was memorable only in the first bite. The Fruiti di mare was a joke, with an unfunny $36 price tag. It had 6 tiny mussels, one giant shrimp including head and 4 scallops. The red sauce was watery and tasteless. I expected more and better from this dish. In past fruiti di mare offerings, the red sauce was prime dipping for bread...... not here! The mussels were pathetic, size and taste. We were starving, agreeing to eat, without comment, and never return. $150 later, adding insult to injury. Should have gone to the Bistro.
One of the better Teton Village restaurants
We know our options are limited in the Teton Village area. Even "upscale casual" is going to be $50 a person, but we would expect the service to be consistent and the food good. We ordered two salads and two pizzas. Two thumbs up for the salads. The arugula ($10) and romaine ($12) were very fresh and good. We should have stopped there. I expected the wood-fired oven pizzas to be worth the $20 price tag. Nope. While the crust was reminiscent of a nice Neapolitan pie, I'm afraid these were a soggy mess and under cooked. The service: not overly attentive, and sadly, they messed up our order, so my wife had her pizza and I awkwardly waited for mine. No offer to make amends, like comping a salad or something. Oh, well. Two salads, two soggy pizzas, two drinks plus tax and tip=$100. Next time we'll try the pasta.
New Year's Eve
The Osteria has been our choice for New Year's Eve in JH since it opened. This year, service was great as always (Spencer's service impeccable), very festive atmosphere and reservation searing was prompt. Three of four meals were incredible and well-portioned. The fourth, the seafood stew, had excellent flavor but found the portion to be very meager for $36. I'm not a heavy eater, but had it not been for the bread, I would have walked away hungry. As well, the elk (or maybe it was bison?) tartare was tasty, but a little thin on portion for the $16 price tag. That said, overall a very enjoyable dining experience - and we'll be back next year.
Fine but declining
Our family has been coming to JH & Osteria for quite some time. We are gradually becoming more disappointed by the food quality & offerings at Osteria, Rendevous Bistro, and the Q. As JH has become more popular, we truly hope that this declining trend does not continue. This visit, Osteria was more suitable for lunch then dinner. Come on, man!
Good all around
We have dined here on numerous occasions and keep coming back. This is a good choice when you want a restaurant that will please adults, young children and teens.
Over the years, the service has been consistently good and extremely friendly. The food has always been tasty, even though I might not say it's fantastic. It is certainly more than adequate for a ski vacation with the kids. We always leave happy.
The ambiance is busy and energetic during the holday period, but not so much so that you can't hold a conversation.
I would recommend going if you are staying in Teton village, but would not say it's worth driving up from town just to go here.
