We came here for dinner on a Friday night. I got the 4 course tasting for $35 with +$5 for the Egg Raviolo, and +$3 for the lamb, I also chose the tuna crudo for starters and the spiced cheesecake for dessert. To start, the Tuna Crudo was good, lightly seasoned, and the tuna was fresh. The Egg Raviolo however... More

Have been to Acero multiple times and it never fails. We have been before a night at the theatre and the staff helped us make dinner wonderful and yet worked to a time limit. We've taken family there for a birthday celebration and a toddler in tow. The staff again was MOST helpful in making our dinner just the best.... More

Okay, I typically like to write positive reviews--much more fun--but I feel compelled to warn others about the cost here. Mind you, the food was good. However, I am used to spending around $120 for a nice dinner out for me and my girl. We typically have an appetizer each, main dish, one or two glasses of wine each, and... More

A very creative menu. Nice ambiance. Great service. All Italian wine list, so if that's not your thing, you'll need to rely on the very capable wait staff. A lovely cheese and charcuterie selection. The homemade mushroom sausage was my favorite! The gnocco fritto was fantastic -- a savory beignet flavored with prosciutto and olive oil. The gnudi was also... More

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
