This was our first visit to Pio's. While it was VERY loud, the service was great. We had Jenny as our server and she was extremely busy but treated us like we were her only customer. The food was good. We would probably go back if we are in the area.

I started going to Pio's as a child with my parents. This restaurant was "the" Italian restaurant in Saint Charles for most of my life. They have great dinners and wonderful pizza. All the Italian dinners are great and you can even get chicken livers if that is your cup of tea. The Pizza is the specialty for me and... More

This is a solid family favorite for us; we attend here for birthday's and holiday's as a tradition. Timing is critical though, during a 'not so busy time'; food can be lacking. Service is almost always superb, most of their wait staff have been there for 20+ years. A few items I recommend: Prime rib is amazing Fried Artichoke hearts... More

My husband and I met my parents for an early Fathers Day meal and were not disappointed. My parents had been taking me there since on was in grade school but after not being there in many years it was just as I remembered it when I was 10. Fran served us as she did when she started 46 years... More

I recently attended a dinner for our organization at Pio's. I had only eaten there one other time so I was looking forward to dining there again. I ordered the Pozzi's salad for dinner and was disappointed in the size for the price - side salad size, large dinner salad price! Putting that aside, the salad came with the House... More

I normally love throw back independently owned restaurants that have been around a while like this one. This was my first time here and I didn't have time to research suggested entrees. I thought I went a safe route with signature St Louis toasted ravioli at an Italian spot but they were definitely dry and tasteless and the meat sauce... More

Never had a bad meal here. I have several favorites - filet mignon, tenderloin for two, fried chicken and pizza. I always get a salad w/the meal - and they are always crisp and fresh. There is a small bar, where if you can find room, you can wait until you are seated. I suggest reservations if you are going... More

The restaurant itself is modest, belongs in a Godfather movie, but the pizza is one-of-a-kind!!!!!!!!

This is our go-to restaurant for New Year's Eve and our anniversary every year. The artichoke hearts are the greatest appetizer ever. The peppercorn steak for two is excellent. The building is old and dark. I always feel like I'm going to see Tony Soprano sitting in the corner. It's definitely an older crowd but one of our favorites.
