Best meal of our lives

My wife and I were in St. Louis this Saturday and wanted to try Italian, so we went to Acero for the first time. Simply put – it was the best meal we’ve ever had. Our server, Olivia, was incredible. She went through the menu, highlighting antipasti dishes and exhaustively (in a good way) describing... read more

To call this an "Italian" restaurant doesn't seem fair, as it's not like any other in town. This isn't a spaghetti & meatball or toasted ravioli kind of place; it's foodie quality ingredients and unbridled kitchen talent without a hint of pretense. You really can't go wrong with anything here, but two standouts for me are the egg raviolo and... More

This is not your usual Italian restaurant. Instead it offers fresh, local ingredients prepared in the hearty Tuscan style. Try the tasting menu and the egg raviolo.

Once in a while you are lucky to find a restaurant with great food, & a wonderfully friendly staff that makes you want to hurry back. We always look forward to dining in this cozy atmosphere.

This is our go-to place for a sumptuous dinner. The raviolo is a favorite, as are many of the small plates. Relaxing, inventive, great service, good advice.

I would have given "excellent" rating except for some timing issues. We went here at 6:00 before an 8:00 theatre curtain 10 minutes away. While the waiter was attentive when he was with us, even though he acknowledged at the outset our time parameters, he did not come back to take our orders until after 6:30. While the kitchen was...

Acero fits and advances the neighborhood vibe, being borderline trendy with sincere attention devoted to the quality and craft of the food. Our party enjoyed a range of dishes from traditional, hand-made pastas (mine was enriched with a boar ragu! That's not an every-day dish!), black cod, and chicken entrees. The four course prix fixe is a great way to... More

My wife and I made our first trip to Acero for Valentine's Day 2015-- and it didn't disappoint. The menu was a little out of our comfort range (we're pizza and burgers type of people), but we decided to give it a whirl...and everything was delicious. The ambiance was great, the service was awesome as well. Also-- there aren't a... More

Want to treat your partner to a five star meal that will not break the bank? I would recommend Acero. The tasting menu does just this and you can try much of the menu and share the flavors with each other. I will be back.

We have eaten there several times in the past and found the food and service good. Our last experience found the menu, service and food excellent. We think that the food was "foodie" acceptable with plenty of nuance in the preparation. We will make sure that we go more often.
