We'll Go Again!

We met friends at Bar Italia Ristorante for lunch on Saturday. As it wasn't too hot we opted for a table in the shade on the patio. Many would suggest this is the best patio in St. Louis. I would agree it's one of the best in the Central West End. We were surprised that it wasn't crowded, but we... read more

Perfect Evening. Easy valet parking. Great weather, and a stellar outdoor patio. Nice menu selection, heavy on pasta dishes. Delicious food. Nice wine selections. Excellent service from James R. Plenty of time for talking with my dining partner as the pacing of the meal matched perfectly our plans for the evening. Will definitely return.

Stopped in for a pre-dinner glass of wine. Excellent wine list. Many imported. Bartender was friendly and informative. Menu looked great, but we had reservations elsewhere. Patio is a great place to watch the world go by on Maryland Plaza!

The decor inside is hideous. The walls are bright orange with worn out, mismatched chairs. There were literally DEAD flowers on our table and dust everywhere. It took over 20 min before someone brought us bread and there were only a half dozen people in the entire restaurant. The food was ok, nothing special. It seems this used to be... More

Dinner for six couldn't have been better than an evening on the patio of Bar Italia. The food was wonderful and the eclectic choices of beers and wines was truly impressive. My lamb chops (medium rare) were perfectly prepared and delicious. The vegetarian meals (and fish and pasta) were well received by my friends and no one had anything other... More

Decent food, and average service are the highlights of this cluster of mismatched and faded worn furniture in an atmosphere that appears dirty and in disrepair. The 'could be' beautiful patio is an eclectic mess...and NOT in a good way. Boarderline 'eye sore'. The interior is not much better. I just want to get up and throw a few things... More

Food and wine were good. Service excellent. Patio is large and very nice to sit on with exquisite turn of century buildings all around and a magnificent Art Deco hotel tower not far. Lots going on in the neighborhood. Definitely recommend. Four of us all had something different. Veal Scaloppini very good.

My late brother went here so much, we joked it was his "country club". I make it a point to come by and meet fiends here whenever I am in St. Louis. I have never had a bad meal. The staff is great. They have a terrific wine list. If its a nice day, their outdoor patio under the trees... More

Three of us went on weeknight (evening) and our dinner was quite good. A little confusing at first because we had 4 people waiting on us so we really weren't sure who our server was. Eventually it got down to one server and he very helpful with his wine and craft beer recommendations. I had salmon, while my wife and... More

We tried the house wine literature and it was exceptional. Started with the olive and cheese plate then the caprese salad. Finished with the past dish. Food was good and prices reasonable. Took some time to be waited on but once we saw the waiter timing was good.
