He's in lots of the pictures too, along with ballplayers, sportscasters, politicians, actors, and other various celebrities who know that Charlie will feed you, and feed you well.

I have been to Charlie Gitto's several times. I'm a creature of habit, so I always order the lasagna. It's an average size portion, but more than I can eat. I have tried the pizza and it is very good too! The building is very old and full of character - it is also very noisy on a busy night,... More

We have eaten here on past visits to St. Louis and have absolutely loved it! But this past weekend we ate here with first timer friends and were disappointed. The consensus among the four of us was that the food was just average, not the delicious treat we've had in the past. Maybe it was just an off night, the... More

We went as a group for lunch. The restaurant was not very busy and we arrived at 11:30 and had notified them ahead of time we were coming. Overall our experience was not very good. You will see the owner at the end of the bar but based on our experience he needs to spend some time in his kitchen... More

It was close to the hotel and the food was fantastic. Classic Italian food in casual setting. You cannot go wrong here.

We were there on Saturday for lunch. In fact, for some regulars at a front table, we were the only ones there. They start out by bringing you a basket of "cold" 1/2 sliced bread with cold butter. If you can't warm it up before served, why bother. I got the dish with shrimp and chicken for $18. There was... More

We walked to this cool old school restaurant from our Arch area hotel. We were treated to a great casual meal at an incredible price. My friends and I work in the Foodservice business so we are aware of how hard it would s to make people feel at home and yet SERVED. Charlie was there and made it to... More

Just a couple blocks from the Cardinal's baseball stadium; was here for work. Food is good, the pasta nicely done (still al dente), the value is great, service is family oriented, friendly, and appropriately attentive. Lots of families and Cardinal fans, all feel welcome. I had the calamari one night and the Fra Diavolo shrimp another night, and can recommend... More

Came here after a Cardinals game. Don't be fooled by the outside which looks quite scary. Inside there's a large bar area and then lots of tables set close to each other. Had the salmon which was just ok. The veggies on the side had a TON of butter though, it was running all over my plate. My husband had... More
