I really enjoyed the tasting menu . Don't miss the special raviolo of the day either. You will not be disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff makes it a easy choice for great Italian !

This is our go-to restaurant in St Louis. Great food, great ambience and friendly staff. Their prix fix menu can't be beat. Pastas are all incredible! In our opinion, more upscale than anything we've tried on the hill.

We tried the 4 course tasting menu and it was wonderful! The gnocco fritto and TAGLIOLINI were some of our favorites! They also had a great wine menu. We will return!

We had a private four course dinner, along with appetizers, for four graduates and their families. It was absolutely the most delicious meal! The menu was printed in advance and everyone had a choice of each course, which included fish, meat and vegetarian. We offered wine, which they provided with and extensive list of red and white, and dessert. The... More

Wonderful newer Italian restaurant in the heart of Maplewood with unique Italian dishes and a nice Italian wine list! The food was especially nice, and so was the service. We chose to have the four course menu. My favorite course was the seared tuna crudo with toasts, and my husband's favorite was the scallops (and the warm chocolate torte with... More

We had a nice time at Acero. The food was real good and the service was good, too. The chicken liver brochette was very good but the white anchovy salad was very disappointing. It was, just a normal saiad with a couple of white anchovies on top like you can get at most grocery stores. Definitely not great but was... More

My husband and I came here on a whim and we were both delighted. We both had the fish special and some drinks and left very happy.

The food was very good, service terrific, drinks delicious. Restaurant has a very fun, open feel. So many scrumptious items on the menu to choose from. Definetly a locale establishment worth trying, you won't regret it.

If you watch cooking shows and see them present foods you've never seen, this is the place to try the Italian dishes. I had my first gnude here. I've heard them described as the ravioli filling without the pasta container. I also had raviolo al uova. A giant pasta pocket with ricotta filling holding an egg yolk that is only... More

What outstanding food! As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, so brace yourself for a little sticker shock. But if you're in the spending mood, rarely will your pallet be so pleased. The service is good, and the space eschews the stuffy atmosphere often found at other fancy Italian joints (I'm looking at you, Tony's).
