New twist on traditional Italian

There were seven of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. Many of the meals seemed typical at first glance but on closer inspection had something not so typical going on. In a typical order of cannelloni at a little old traditional Italian restaurant on The Hill in St. Louis, you get your meat... read more

We had a selection of appetizers and pastas. Everything we tasted was amazing. The presentation was nice, the service fast but not rushed. My favorite appetizer was the beef tongue. I was a little skittish but my son promised me it was amazing and he was right! Finished off the meal with an expresso and it was perfect too.

It was date night and I wanted something with an Italian flavor so we chose this place. The Ambiance was alright with the dim lights and candles however when it was time to deliver our food that's when it went downhill. The pizza was Burnt I mean really burnt . The flattened chicken with fingerling potatoes was a waste .... More

Zack Bruell's restaurants always seem to deliver. Consistent service, inventive tastes and a varied menu suit any preference. Chinato is at the corner of Prospect and 4th, in the heart of the E. 4th restaurant district. The space has a distinct, understated urban vibe, and window side tables offer some wonderful people watching opportunities. My wife and I shared a... More

I wanted to treat some out of town friends, and had to choose between Cleveland's Little Italy section vs. Chinato, I chose the latter and highly recommend it. The pork ossa buco is beyond excellent,and the choices of wine by the glass let everyone get their own favorite. We concluded with a shared tarimasu that was superb. Take the time... More

Delicious food. Friendly service. Lovely view. I'd love to see the menu expanded just a bit, but that's a personal choice. As it stands, it is a great place for dinner, either casual or special occasion.

Had dinner on a Saturday evening @ 6. Excellent service, our waiter was very knowledgeable with wine suggestions and answering our questions about the items on the menu. Delicious bread with olive oil for dipping comes before dinner. We had sea scallops with pisarei and the special which was a 10oz rib eye. Both our dinners were cooked to perfection!... More

Thier Happy Hour has a good wine selection plus deals on appetizers at the bar. The gnocchi is great, but so is the sausage pizza. The bartenders are very friendly, too, especially Annie. We'll definitely go back when we're in town.

We arrived at 8pm to a packed house on a Monday night. This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The grilled octopus entrée was spot on and the wines by the glass were well priced. Two appetizers, a half gnocchi and my entrée with two generous glasses of Barbaresco and Malbec were $90 + tip!

Ate dinner there before a Cavs game, Restaurant was busy but we had a reservation. Waiter asked if we were going to the game to insure we wouldn't be late. Many of the items on the menu have a different twist. Had to ask questions about various dishes to find out how they were made. We both had a Tuscan... More
