Seems a bit older but romantic vintage...waiter was cordial, food delicious, fast...but in boxing we only got a couple pieces of garlic bread from our table...so delicious...hope they didn't discard it. Had seafood fettuccine and lasagna...delish.

My friends took me here while I was visiting and I definitely enjoyed the food. I'm from Europe and am use to smaller portions so this was a new experience. I enjoyed the food but they always gave a bit too much... It'll give you the tendancy to eat too much and then you'll be reminded by feeling full... If... More

We had carry out / catered food for our grandson's baptism. Wonderful food. I had heard so many great things about this place and everything I heard was correct. Can't wait to go back and eat on site.

This Hill is a traditional Italian community where shops and restaurants are sprinkled among the homes. Favazza’s is on the edge of the neighborhood and provides a pleasant, comfortable dining experience. Our search for gluten-free dining for my wife and daughter and a recommendation from a classmate led us to this restaurant. We were very pleased with our selections. The... More

My husband and I decided to eat at Favazza's for the first time one night during the week. Online reservations made it really easy to make sure we had a table waiting. We were pleasantly surprised to find that they have a little parking lot across the street just for their customers. When we walked in, we were seated right... More

I had a fantastic dinner last Saturday at Favazza's. I was part of a large party (12) and we were seated quickly in a large table in the back. Very comfortable. Our server, who I'm not sure told us his name, was very kind and attentive. Everyone said their food was delicious. The only thing in my opinion that keeps... More

Love the salads here. Good entrees and good value for price. Not a super intimate atmosphere. Better for families then a romantic evening.

The fireplace was nice. The salads Cesar and dinner were good. The waitress was attentive but the food seemed to take a very long time, 40 minutes. Maybe that's normal but when you're really hungry that's a long time. I was so glad I had ordered a salad with my margherita pizza. The crust was nice on the pizza. My... More

For those of you who don't know St. Louis, there is a neighborhood call "The Hill." I guess the area is called a hill because it is near the highest elevation in St. Louis. The full name is Dago Hill, it being the locus of a huge Italian migration in the 19th Century. But nobody calls it that any more.... More
