Good Italian Food

When we arrived we were the only 2 people in this place. The young gentleman that sat us didn't say a word - even when filling our water glasses. We tried to make conversation but he must have been extremely shy. Our waitress, Peaches, was delightful and very engaging. The food and wine were... read more

The restuarant is close to the convention center, so I decided to check it out after reading some reviews here. It's an Italian restaurant (with no pizza, though). The service was acceptable. The good was average, in part, becasue my dinner (manicotti) was not served warm enough. Everything about the restaurant is average in my opinion. Most poeple would leave... More

Had the opportunity to enjoy the incredible authentic Italian cuisine and excellent waitstaff at this downtown eatery while in town for a medical conference. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu and if you want it made a little different they'll be happy to do it for you with no fuss at all. If you're staying in downtown... More

We stopped in for a desert to go. I had a cannoli and it was sooooooo good. Authenic. Hard to find! The staff was fun and helpful.

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night out of sheer convenience. We were staying at the Drury Inn, which the restaurant is attached to. The food was ok. My lasagna was very average, but I will say my boyfriend's ribeye steak was very good (he let me try a couple bites). There's no kids menu, but they let kids... More

We were at an event across the street and came here to have a few drinks. At first there were only a few other patrons. Nina is super sweet and very talkative. The bar filled up fast, she stayed calm and collected and still kept a conversation. We didn't eat but it smelled amazing and the restaurant was packed. We... More

We got here at an early hour, just before all others came from a conference. There were three of us, and we all enjoyed our plates very well. You may not think that it will be decent Italian food, since it's kind of old (like think 80s/90s with the wheelchair ramp like hallway entrance into a dining room....). Part of... More

We went to JF Sanfilippo's before an event at the Edward Jones Dome last week. We had a coupon for 25% off from the Entertainment.com web site. The food was average and the prices were fair. When the bill came, we gave the coupon to the waitress. At first she said they didn't take coupons during event nights. Then she... More

Mark, As I mentioned to you when I came to your table Saturday night, we never signed up with Entertainment Guide. They approached us and we decided against joining their site because of their practices. It is not a fee based system on our end. They charge you for their books not us. For the past six months I've searched... More
