Great Family Restrurant.

My wife and I have stopped here many times on the way home from St. Louis. This is an old style family restaurant. Pio’s serves Italian food has a great atmosphere and the prices are reasonable.

My in-laws are St. Charles natives and Pio’s has been their go-to pizza joint since they were teens. Indeed, the pizzas at Pio’s are unique from the many other styles I’ve tried around the country. The crust is thin, crispy at the edges and chewier in the center. The tomato sauce is also unique and my father-in-law has tried for... More

For anyone who grew up in or around St. Charles, you've likely been to Pios. This place is a quaint old Italian joint with tons of character.I grew up going there with my parents and extended family after events or just for food and drinks. We stopped in there the other night to celebrate my aunts birthday(81!) and when we... More

We grew up here loving this pizza. We now l8ve in Indiana, but always stop here if we are near St. Charles. Our standard order is a large hamburger pizza. It is the BEST! I also love their salad dressing that has garlic, yummy! Great Italian dishes. Family friendly.

We have been coming to Pio's for 35 years and it used to be the place to go for Italian, but they have slipped in the quality of the food and service. We were here three days ago and the service was terrible, they didn't clear our appetizer plates from the table till we were ready to leave. We had... More

Pio's is a nice simple Italian spot great for a wide variety of dishes for lunch or supper at a very reasonable price. They also have banquet facilities.

Pio's has been around since I was in high school (40-45 years ago!!). In fact, Pio was a friend of my fathers. The food is good, great homemade pies, thin crust pizza...and of course PASTA! It is a landmark in St Charles.

After reading reviews we decided to try out Pio's. We were a bit surprised with the environment. Expected a little more of a fine dining experience but was rather dreary. I had the Chicken Fettucine Alfredo and my husband had the Lasagna. The Alfredo was very good and the lasagna was average. They actually charge extra for cheese and croutons... More

Italian on the menu though not in atmosphere. At dinner time the service lacked interest. The table bread, salad, and entree was uninspiring.
