Description: 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.

“On the downward slope.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Was surprised to hear Spur restaurant next door had taken the lead of the Village restaurants. Used to love Osteria ...we have come to Teton Village every year for the past 7 years for a week and have eaten there 2-3 times each week...touting it as the best in the Village to all our friends. First meal this week..app salads lacked the luster and freshness of the past...white bean salad just ok with fresh mint thrown on top. Branzino good, fresh and perfectly cooked...crisp skin, moist meat...but veggies on the plate....just ok...grilled cauliflower had been precooked and refrigerated, then reheated...husband's pasta...average. Next meal ..cheese app...was sooo cold, flavors and texture off...pork chop main was average, thrown on the aforementioned bean salad sans mint. On top of this, the night manager, Stacey was not accommodating. We had reserved our table a month in advance requesting outdoor seating, on 4th of July, a night we knew would be busy. Walking into the resto, we were excited to see an empty 2 top on the patio. As Stacy begins to seat us in the back corner of the restaurant squeezed between the pizza oven and a table for 10, we politely inquired about the empty outdoor table...she stated it was going to be used to make a 5 top. We chose to wait for another table...sitting at the entrance 2 feet in front of Stacey. Within 3 minutes we were seated at that very table, and during the eve there was no new group of five, and furthermore within 10 minutes another 2 top opened, and then 2 more. It would be one thing if it were Per Se in New York, or even if you were saving the table for a local hot shot...but to antagonize customers when you have been knocked off the top is just poor management.

Thank you for joining us to celebrate the 4th and for sharing your review with us on TripAdvisor. Glad to hear you enjoyed the Branzino! Sorry to hear the other dishes didn't live up to your previous dining experiences with us. The quality and freshness of our plates is very important to us and I'm sorry to hear you didn't feel this shone through. We try to honor reservation requests when at all possible. As with many plans, seating arrangements often change last minute, allowing us to further accommodate requests. It's important to us that we provide you with the best dining experience possible while you are with us - from seating to service. We certainly appreciate your patronage over the years and hope you will return again in the future.

Thanks for sharing all aspects of your dining experience with us. Our food is made to order so it can take a bit longer than other restaurants, but I'm happy you enjoyed the quality and taste of your dishes! We are constantly changing up the menu to highlight seasonal, fresh ingredients. Our chefs like to get creative with dishes too so I'd definitely encourage you to try some of the dishes that may sound a bit out of your comfort zone, like the Bloody Mary Risotto. It sounds interesting in description but the way the flavors marry together is delicious! Thanks for your thoughtful review. We look forward to having you back in the future. Cheers!

“Food was awful”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

I cannot believe anyone could enjoy eating this awful food. This is a prime example of food at a ski resort (we were there in summer) with exotic combinations beyond the capabilities of the chef in the hope the dish will justify the price. Pizza crust like tasteless cardboard and salads salted and seasoned beyond reason. Horrible

“Terrific food”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

My husband and I had a great dinner at Osteria and would go back when in Jackson. For appetizers, we had bruschetta with sardines and the meatballs which were both excellent. For dinner, I had fish which was very fresh and tasty. My husband had papardelle with boar ragu which was very good as well. The service was good and you did not feel rushed at all.
