After a lovely afternoon visiting Jackson for shopping, we decided to try Villa Buscaglia on the recommendation of a local shop owner. We arrived within minutes of the restaurant opening. The hostess, although friendly, told us in no uncertain terms that the empty restaurant was fully booked. She offered that we could sit at the bar to eat and told us, "It's worth it." We reluctantly agreed, not realizing the 'bar' was a tiny counter with a total of 4 seats. During the almost 90 minutes we were dining at the bar, we noticed that close to half of the tables in the restaurant remained empty the entire time. When we inquired about whether or not we could have a table at the 45 minute point, both the hostess and the bartender brusquely told us, "Those tables are reserved." We even watched a party of 4 come in for dinner and be turned away because they didn't have reservations! We spent close to $100 and almost 90 minutes cramped at a tiny counter while many tables remained empty. Even the owner, who helped tend bar, told us, "Some of the reservations must be running late." 90 minutes late? It seemed unusual that, in this economy, Villa Buscaglia could afford to skimp on hospitality. One would expect them to either hold a few tables for early walk-ins or graciously release a few 'reserved' tables after they went unclaimed. The location is absolutely gorgeous, but the attitude of the owner and staff unfortunately soured our experience.
