A word from Il Villaggio Osteria
In February 2008, Fine Dining Restaurant Group, of Rendezvous Bistro & Q Roadhouse fame, brought a taste of Italy to Jackson Hole with the opening of Il Villaggio Osteria. Located inside the Hotel Terra which is the state’s first LEED certified property and only the fifth in the United States. Highlights of the intimate restaurant are Il Villagio Osteria’s 12-seat wine bar and eight seat salami bar, where guests can watch as imported meats and cheeses, sourced from the country’s finest purveyors, are hand-sliced to order. House made pastas, sausage stuffed olives, beautiful wines and entrees round out the exquisite multi course menu.

    Osteria has always been one of our top 5 restaurants to visit every time we come to Jackson Hole (which is approximately 10 weeks). Most of the time it is exceptional but this visit the meals we chose weren't our favorites (elk chop and halibut). Plus it was the first time our food took forever and the placement of our table was not the best. We were right at the entrance. We will definitely come back but this was slightly disappointing. I also think the wine is extremely overpriced. We purchased Jackson Hole Pinot Noir and I have purchased this wine for FAR less than we paid.

    I had a cake delivered to serve as an anniversary surprise. The staff handled this special surprise well. I never followed up to fill them in on it; the baker Jaclyn Bernard did. From when we arrived we were wished happy anniversary. Everyone knew and made it special but didn't spoil the surprise. The cake arrived with a sparkler on top, a nice touch. My husband didn't know until he took his first bite that I had arranged for a baker to make a small version of our wedding cake. Thanks to the staff for smoothly handling this!

    We hadn't been to Osteria in a while and we are locals. We went recently and were delighted by how good our dinner was. The Guido Sarducci pizza is my favorite one by far with a delicious crust, spicy sausage, caramelized onions and marscapone cheese. Love the fresh arugula on top! I was also surprised and delighted by my chicken cacciatore which was so tender and delicious - very authentic version. My husband had the Wyoming steak - perfectly cooked and the cauliflower au gratin was wonderful. We had a very nice waiter - personable but not annoying. All in all a very nice experience and we'll go back more often.

    IL Villagio is normally a good restaurant, and we have had very good experiences in the past. However, this time, it was not our lucky night. Bottarga pizza came without bottarga; and a new pizza was ordered. In the end, I ate my dishes alone, and my wife ate hers alone. The waiter was missing in action. Not a single apology was given. It seemed 'business-as-usual'.

    The service is excellent. The menu offers an amazing and inventive range of choices, many not found elsewhere, and you have to come back several times to sample all the tempting offers. Everything we have tasted was good to excellent. Restaurant is, understandably, crowded and tables are small; background music was rather odd and hardly necessary, just adding to the noise level.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Since we were 2, we were placed at a small 2-person table in the corner behind some cases of wine that were stacked there near the wine display wall. Shortly thereafter, a solo female was placed alone at a 4-person table near us. Perhaps she was a guest at the hotel? Or simply pushier than us? (it was 5:30, we had reservations, the DR was almost empty) Our server spent a lot of time chatting with the woman about the wine and food choices, and the server's life in the valley. I hope that woman gave her a nice tip - we gave the minimum, partly due to having to listen to this chatter while we waited for our food and partly due to the length of the wait. We are locals, and are not planning to hurry back there.

    Osteria continues to be a perfect place for a casual, but sophisticated dinner. Located 15 minutes from the town of Jackson Hole in Teton Village, the inviting restaurant turns out great Italian favorites including brick oven pizzas, bolognese and carefully selected wines. The staff is great and the continuity of faces from year-to-year would suggest that they enjoy working there as much as we enjoy eating there! Bonus for parents: book a table outside and your kids can play on the playground that is part of the Teton Village Commons.

    An out of control over served four-top were loud and obnoxious. They knocked over their chairs at least twice and created an unpleasant ambiance for everyone else. Management didn't have any idea how to handle the situation, their waiter just served more alcohol to the foursome and told us that they live nearby so he wasn't worried about their driving. How about thinking of your other customers?

    We had eaten at Il Villaggio's last year. It was wonderful. The service was superb. We were able to dine outside and the families kept their children managed between the tables and the play area. A 5 star review, last year. This year was disappointing. Our waiter was knowable of the menu and offered suggestions but the communication between staff and kitchen was lacking. Our first 2 courses arrived in a timely manner but we waited 45 min for our main dish (steak) was cold and our appiteizer appeared to be an after thought and brought along with our cold steak. Our waiter brought a complimentary thimble size glass of wine for our wait. The quality did not match the $$$ that we spent. We will not be returning. very disappointing

    This was the loudest restaurant I have ever experienced. There were many large parties who jad to shout to each other to be heard on the other end of the table. the 10 person table next to our party of 4 were literally screaming at the top of their voices to be heard. I could not hear my daughters speaking in a regular voice from across my table. In addition, the party next to use were using foul language interspersed in their screaming conversation. The food was well prepared and service was attentive, but everything was overshadowed by the noise level.

    Excellent Arugula Salad, Spinach Ravioli, and the organic duck breast can be recommended for anyone that enjoys wild game selections. Pass on the gelato if you have discerning tastes for this Italian treat. Other dessert menu items are likely far better choices. Great restaurant in the middle of Teton Village resort, the most popular for vacationers so highly recommend reservations.

    We have been coming to JH annually for the last eight years. We have visited the Osteria each of the last three years. Every year it has gotten worse. This visit is our last. The brussels w/ pomegranate sounded good- but were poorly executed, the cauliflower the same. The chicken liver mousse was inedible. The pizza was ok- nicely blistered on the bottom- but the toppings and cheese were nothing interesting. The Lasagna my daughter ordered was baked in a casserole dish- it was like soup. I would expect that quality level at a low end family owned red sauce Italian place in the suburbs. Not good.

    Something is wrong at the Osterria. We have always enjoyed fresh, lively food. This trip, we experienced less attention to detail, service that was way too casual and plates that were ordinary. In such a great mountain location, there is a captive clientele but the quality has definitely slipped.

    Fantastic as always. There's a good reason this place is buzzing every night. The food is creative and delicious. The chef never misses here. Great selection of Italian wines. My only issue is they could use more staff. Everyone seems so overwhelmed. If you need more wine best to plan in advance or you will wait. Also I feel rushed here, for example my main dish arrived while the appetizers were still on the table and only 3/4 done. I get that it's busy and they need to book it tight but nonetheless it is a downside to dining here.

    We go to Jackson Hole at least twice each year. Rotate the restaurants we hit each time, but Osteria is always on the rotation. Food is always excellent with a very interesting menu. Never had a meal that I didn't love. Service is always the best and waitstaff fun to interact with. Good wine list. Atmosphere is rustic and casual. This is a must if traveling to Jackson Hole Area
