Favazzas Restaurant is "On the Hill" in STL, just down the street from the childhood homes of Yogi Berra and Joe Garigiola. It is old style Italian with all the atmosphere that entails.

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.

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!

Parents and pre teen. Ordered traditional Italian fare and was not disapointed. Red and white sauces were flavorful & not runny. I would eat here again. We came at week dsy lunch & not a wait. To hot to sit outside today but nice outdoor seating area

Thank DachK
