What a great place

A delicious taste of Italy brought to you with gusto by Rich and his staff. The service is tip top, as is the food.

We were a group of 10 coming in for the weekend for a wedding, and visited on the recommendation of an old friend who is a native. We made a reservation since this was a Friday evening and we were a large group, and had no wait when we arrived. The menu was varied and offered many alternatives, with plenty... More

I am from New York and have spent considerable time in St. Louis and on "The Hill". My first visit here was a few weeks ago and I was disappointed with the food. The service was superb, truly excellent. The hosts were courteous and warm, all of that was fine. The bread was also some of the best I've had.... More

I use to live in St. Louis but had never been to LoRusso's. Visiting old friends, they suggested this place for a Sunday night meal. The food was delicious. I made my husband try the flash-fried spinach, a true St Louis "thing" and he was amazed. The tortellini was excellent, they had local craft beer on tap (Schlafly) and our... More

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.
