Several members of my men's chorus go here after rehearsals - I had not but they suggested it, so when my sister came into town & wanted Italian, we tried Pio's. It's been family owned for decades and acts like it - they greet you, everyone is friendly. We had garlic toast to start, a little pricey but good. The... More

When in St. Charles for a good dinner, this is the place. Get there early as they are always busy. Good Italian food, good service and old fashioned restaurant style.

Our group had various pasta dishes. All of which were excellent. I had the pizza. It was good, not great or the best in town. St. Louis thin crust is the only style they offer. Diverse menu, good for families. Nice and quiet place to dine. Service was excellent.

Place smells old, it needs to be aired out. It is also very outdated. Instead of bread they give you a little basket full of crackers, which was sooo odd! lol We asked for bread and they gave us sliced bread, we had to ask for oil and vinegar separately. Not a great selection of wines. Food was just okay... More

Everything was great. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for a culinary treat! every detail from the appetizer to the soup, to our main course was excellent. Service was attentive, It felt like they had been waiting just for you to arrive, just so they could wait on just you. Very friendly helpful servers.

The food is always good here and the atmosphere is a bit on the Romantic side. The restaurant is nice and cozy and on the dark side....not that dark side. Great for couples on first date,,,anniversaries, just a night out in St. Charles.

The dress is ultra-casual with (in my experience) screaming children as entertainment. Both myself and my fellow diner thought the food was below par and overpriced for the quality. We thought the vegetable soup was not tasty, lasagna was almost all noodles, broccoli was watery, and crab cakes were so-so. I have made better eggplant parmesan myself and I am... More
