We had decided to do a family trip to the Fox Theatre to see Wicked and wanted a good Italian meal for a party of 6. We chose LoRusso's on the recommendation of other St. Louis residents and the online reviews. We found the food good but not any better than other restaurants on or near The Hill. Our evening was made less pleasant by the lack of attention from the server. He was curt while taking drink and meal orders, unapologetic when the incorrect salad was served, and difficult (near impossible) to find for bread or drink refills. We had to ask another server about the available desserts after our waiter swept by our table and asked if anyone was interested in dessert then quickly left before we each had time to consider and answer. For a restaurant with great reviews for food and an early evening weekday reservation (5:30 pm) when the restaurant was not yet super busy, our evening was disappointing and we will probably try a different restaurant the next time we are in St. Louis. We have experienced equally good food, ambiance, and much better service in other Italian restaurants in much nicer neighborhoods in this city.
