An amazing variety of great, traditional Italian foods awaits the hungry but discerning customer. Fun wait staff, fun atmosphere, fair prices for genuine Italian foods at their best!

Just picked this restaurant as we drove on the Hill. Atmosphere was casual located in an old, well kept building that had lots of charm. We decided to sit on the large patio outside, which was comfortable and very practical for the summer. Ordered the Sicilian salad, pasta primavera and cavatteli with meat sauce with meatballs. Nothing to say other... More

This restaurant, on the Hill, is an excellent value for the quality of the food and the professional service. We noticed many families with children. We sampled 2 excellent appetizers, toasted ravioli and calamari--both very good. (The calamari was not dripping in grease.) The margherita pizza, tortellini and Tutto Mare are all safe choices.

Careful, large portions. The sandwiches were huge, but wonderful. Great service, reasonable prices. Love the look of the place.

Taking a recommendation from a local, we rolled into town and grabbed an Uber to Favazzas for an excellent casual meal. The Steak Mueada was so tender, and the service was impeccable!

We were very impressed with Chef Mark. He made it a point to come to our table and reviewed the menu with our family to ensure our kids could eat safely. He was very knowledgable about the food preparation and manufacturing processes of items made off site. Food was excellent and will return when we are back in the area.... More

A good example of classic italian food on the hill in st louis. first off, great toasted ravioli. these are not made in a factory...these are freshly made and are delicious. Small dinner salads are again, very basic, but just what you would expect. We had a party of 11 and everyone was satisfied with their entrees from sicilian chicken... More

We went for lunch and it was fantastic food. Somewhat pricy but not too bad. One had the lasagna and said it was the best she has ever eaten, the other had the manicotti and said it was good but preferred the sister's lasagna. I had a lunch special of grilled chicken in a lemon sauce and it was out... More
