Interesting. Your last post put you in Henderson TN. Are you one of the owners of Besso?

Like many who know besso's - I live in Henderson and work sometimes in Jackson - mostly I stay at home to help my 90yr old mother so it is hard - which is sad as I would like to eat at Besso's more. My daughter and I got to go there the other day - looks like they are having some going pains - but everything was good and the gelato was great as always. I miss it.
ate there once

I ate at the besso's in henderson and swore I'd never go back. The portions were tiny, the customer service was horrible,and the pastas were very dull with no flavor. It had a nice atmosphere and the gelato bar was cool but that was the only thing me and my family liked about it. So i hope the jackson location has it together more than the henderson one or its going to be a flop after the new has worn off.

I ate there once. Wasn't impressed. Paid extra for a salad which had very little on it. And the entree was skimpy and overpriced

Soooo... you're comparing Besso's with Fazoli's????? Get real...

spaghetti (no meatballs) and cheese manicotti for spouse. No salads (they are extra) and total bill was $27.....Would have received more food at Fazoli's for 1/2 that price.....
Going to be hard to make it with less expensive alternative across the street which serves great food.

Union graduate has a bad attitude... critical of others under a hidden cover (no name) they can be critical. Bet Union Grad doesn't tip ... like most Christians who eat out on Sundays. They make demands and don't act Christians to those who serve them... and dont tip either.

I ate there the night before you and the food was delicious, service was timely, the bartender came over to talk (I didn't even order a drink), it was more than Fazoli's but the quality of the facility justified a higher price. I loved it. tipped the server to let her know I am glad Besso's is in Jackson.

We tried Besso's last week. I think they have alot to work on. We waited 20 minutes to get waters and longer for bar drinks. We arrived at 715 and still did not have our food at 9. We didn't order appetizers, so that's not the reason it took so long. They were out of lasagna that my friend and I ordered. The server was completely clueless as to what anything on the menu was. She din't know anything about the wine or the specialty bar drinks. We kept getting bumped because the tables were so crammed. I will say the chicken picatta was AMAZING! I think this place really has some potential, but they need much better training of their staff. We will be back, but after the kinks are worked out...

Dixie Chicken is totally off base.... Food was good, Henderson people hated to see it move to Jackson. I have been there and eaten and loved it. I will be back.

I sooo support the owners. They step out and start a business and make it impressive. That is what makes America GREAT! Thanks for your efforts!!!!

Bessos customer... If you are implying.that we didn't tip our server, you are mistaken. It's not her fault that she was poorly trained. I'm.so glad you got stellar service. And how would you know what night I ate there? I'm speaking about MY experience. And MY experience wasn't great. You are an idiot.

Besso's customer is probably not a customer. It's an employee. They came on here trying to get cheap advertising and didn't expect so many people on here actually had been there and had a bad experience. After reading some of their posts when people complained, I'd definitely not go back. Interesting fact though, the parking lot of the Spaghetti store was packed yesterday morning. They were even parking at the bank next door. Besso's had a few people, but there were plenty of parking spaces there.

I ate at Besso's twice. First time was Sunday October 7th for lunch. I had tomato soup and a salad with tea. I think the bill was around 15.00 Service was ok. The table was kind of cramped & I had to ASK for a napkin. I was going to eat there Thursday night, but I got there around $:$%pm and the kitchen was closed and all they were serving was pizza & salad, so I left. Went back Friday night after :00 pm ordered the manicoti, a spinach salad. Had two martini's ( their drinks are stronng!) and a spinach salad. had to ask for bread, a napkin & more marinara sauce for the manicoti. the server did a great job, was very friendly and made sure I had everything I needed. My bill was $39.00

Seems the posts about it being over priced and small (kiddy portions) are true.

Well good luck with that. Their current management aint working out. They obviously can't run the place and think advertising on Topix is going to help.

Tried to eat there Friday evening around 7:30, the place was full of empty tables and the hostess told us the wait would be at least 30-40 minutes. We left and went to Baudo's and had the usual great food. Besso had their one shot at me.

Give them a few weeks and it will come together. Remember Italian food is not all the same there food won't be like anything else in Jackson. I don't work there and my first time going wasn't the best but I understand that things take time. Most of you complaining have no clue what it takes to run a place like that. If you think it's way over priced then go somewhere cheaper. Don't bash it because you don't like paying $15 for lunch. Or $25 for dinner. That doesn't make you cheap just not your style of place!

Agreed. I think Coyote Blues is overpriced for Mexican compared to other local Mexican places but I still go there occasionally because it is different. Apparently others think so too since they typically have a good crowd. Charlie Bulldogs had a lot of haters when it first opened but I personally like it. Different places appeal to different people. If you don't like a place, don't go back. I haven't tried Besso's yet but plan to after they have been open awhile and had a chance to work out their problems they apparently have now. Then I will make my own decision on whether to go back.
