I was in town visiting family and we were looking for a night out with great food and nice atmosphere. LoRusso's was an excellent recommendation by a friend. The salads were delicious, the best caesar I have had in a long time. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and we will come back!

We have been going to this restaurant since it was a 6 table place at Hampton and Chippewa. For us it is the go to place for moderately priced, good italian food in Saint Louis. This is not the fanciest italian place in the city, but it is solid: good food, great prices and goo service. Always a lot of... More

This is our favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The food and service are always excellent and Rich's wine recommendations are always outstanding. We always use LoRusso's to celebrate special occasions and are always pleased. I highly recommend LoRusso's, never disappointed.

Lorusso's Cucina is an extraordinary Italian restaurant in an area noted for this good to great Italian restaurants. Menu has been redesigned since the last time I was there. My chicken marsala was excellent, as was my wife's tortellini. Wait staff was attentive, and coordinated their service at our table very well--we didn't feel pestered, nor neglected. We have never...

We have read good things about LoRusso's and were in the area and it was dinner time so we decided to try LoRusso's. Everything started out ok, but oddly when we ordered the prefixe dinner from the back of the menu, the server lost interest. After taking our order, he never stopped at our table again except to drop off... More

Wekick - we appreciate you taking the time to give us your thoughts on dinner. I cannot apologize enough for the way the service dimension of your experience developed. We take much pride in our customer service and this is totally inappropriate. In relation to the wine service - we use 11 oz glasses for most of our wines but... More

We've been here about a half dozen times over the past 2 years, and Rich & crew never fail to exceed expectations. Impeccable service, a quaint, quiet, romantic atmosphere, and some of the most unique twists on traditional Hill fare round out an exceptional experience. My personal favorite meal was a chef's special one evening, it was a shrimp &... More

Perfect service, delicious food in a comfortable room with a friendly host-chef. The mushroom trio was to die for and the ceasar actually had anchovies!
