ONE. OF. OUR. ABSOLUTE. FAVORITES. PERIOD.

Love this place. My daughter's dream restaurant. Everything is fantastic. Cannot say enough, and my wife is Italian - and we are St. Louis natives! :-)

I made a reservation online asking for a nice table for my anniversary. Two hours later I got a call from Terri telling me that if I can wait 15 minutes I can have a 'curtain table'. It was perfect! The server was great and on-time. The wine list was strong, the price point was fine and the best part... More

I am sure you'll agree, that when you visit a restaurant and enjoy the dinner, you'll return again. I have returned many times over the years and have ordered things I have had before I really enjoyed. One thing I do not have to worry about is, will it be just as it was the last time I ordered it?... More

So far we've taken my daughter for her 17th birthday and her best friend for her 18th birthday per their request. The food and service were both wonderful. I love this little gem of a place

The waitress. We asked her for a gluten free menu, she said she would be right back. After 10 minutes I got one from the hostess. Said she would be right back to take our order-disappeared for 10 minutes. When putting the food down she tried to push a full glass out of the way on a tablecloth with a... More

I apologize for the comedy of events that plagued your groups dinner this past weekend. We normally get high marks for our customer service and food but obviously that is not the case here, Prior to your statements, food issues were not known in your group and "the food was great" was the term used in another review. We cook... More

One of the best moderately prices Italian restaurants in St.Louis. From appetizers to desserts everything is great. The best cioppino in town. Never had anything here that was not excellent.

My husband and I (mid-thirties) went to LoRusso's for a date night. We walked in and we were the only people under 60 years old. The atmosphere of the place was that of a typical quiet fine dining. We ordered our drinks and bruschetta for our appetizer. The tomato basil topping was very under seasoned and the bread was burnt.... More

Seems the ball was dropped during your visit. I personally prepare the Bruschetta and assure you that... More

I recently had a wonderful dining experience at LoRusso's. I had the Cioppino and a house salad. I must say their Cioppino is the best I have ever had! Their house salad was perfect with very fresh tasting ingredients and not drenched in dressing as you might find in other Italian restaurants. The service was excellent with prompt attention to...

This is a resturant that caters to older peolpe and not very well. We had the fish 'special' and filet in a Marsella sauce; both dishes were very salty and tastless. The house salad was fine, except it was doused in dressing. We waited 40 minutes between our salad and our dinner. The serve was exceptionally bad. We have been... More
