What a wonderful surprise to find a restaurant so close to the hostel and to discover it was such a wonderful place. The food was excellent, the service just great. I would eat there again if I ever am in that part of St Louis.

Took a look at the menu, did not find pizza. The owner said they had pizza and it was good. Also ordered toasted ravioli. It was also good. Will eat there again!

I visited Sanfilippo's twice during a recent trip to St. Louis. Both times we were the only people there. It was during the week, but dinner time. The first time everything was impeccable. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. My son had the mussels appetizer which he said was great. I had a salad with house dressing which was simple... More

Best eggplant Parmesan I have eaten in my 70 years. Hot rolls with butter, and fresh salad. I was surprised at the great taste at moderate price

JF Sanfilippos and its sister restaurant (Sanfilippo's in Chesterfield, MO) can be counted on consistently to serve you delicious, home-made Italian fare that is always fresh and exciting for the palate. Owner Joe Sanfilippo shepherds over his restaurants to ensure the quality is not lost Momma Sanfilippo still bakes the outstanding bread and Italian rolls (that are served steaming hot)... More

Recommended by a friend, I was reluctant to try an Italian restaurant NOT on The HIll. We are tried and true loyalists to one particular place on The Hill, but decided to give it a try. It was fabulous! The food was really delicious and a bonus was to see the family of this family owned business working in the... More

What a wonderful place. Tucked away on North Broadway. The food was great but the real gem is the owner/Chef Paul and his sister Connie. They visit every table and make it a point to talk to every patron. This is a place I most definitely will be going back to with family and friends. The prices were very reasonable... More

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 very good.
