I'm giving a four out of five, but couldn't gone either way. Patio scene was great on a nice, breezy August evening. Great neighborhood...Favazza's is really just off the edge of The Hill neighborhood so you don't get the entire feel of it unless you drive down through the neighborhood like we did afterwards. Food service was a little slow...over... More

We really liked the calamari and crab stuffed mushrooms. My husband enjoyed a cup of the Soup of the day Tomato Florentine while I enjoyed the House Dinner Salad with the house dressing, Our 8 year old nephew is still talking about the toasted ravs. We ended our meal with a generous serving of their Home Made Vanilla Ice cream....

This place has a beautiful patio for outdoor seating. The inside is nothing compared to it. They have many pasta dishes. I had a seafood pasta dish that was very good. I could have easily gotten two meals out of it. Their sangria is very good. They also bring bread to your table. They have catering options as well. Down... More

We brought our friends from Thailand here for dinner because they wanted to try some St. Louis toasted ravioli. They were favorably impressed. The salads and dinners were also delicious!Portions were very generous, so we were able to enjoy again the next day for lunch.

We dined for lunch on the patio on a beautiful sunny day. The red and white sangria were both wonderful! The italian bread was fresh, soft and flavorful. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. The patio is beautiful and offers a great dining experience. Two people in our group had the lasagna, it was a huge portion and they... More

They have probably the best patio in St. Louis, large, partly covered with fans and a fireplace. Wonderful weather and great surroundings - even a fountain. Makes you feel like you might be in Italy. Food is very good St. Louis Hill Italian - we had the pasta and scallops special, along with great side salads and a chocolate dessert.... More

Usually a house dinner salad is "just a salad". Don't know what it is, but their salad is far and away the best ever. All in our party agreed. We visited it 2 times in 4 days, their menu was that good and the foods did not disappoint.

First time trying this place (yesterday) or any other place in The Hill and honestly the pizza was excellent! I also ordered the pasta with shrimp, crab, and clam - it was good but I agree with the previous reviewer, it was a little bland. My little one loved it though. I would have at least rated my experience a... More
