You can be sure the food is always top notch! The waitstaff is always courteous and knowledgeable. This time there was a surprise. Asking for a quiet table, we were shown to a new space right off the bar that was indeed quiet enough to have a decent conversation with our companions. What a combination - great food, great service,... More

This is an old St. Louis hangout for many Italian food lovers. We hadn't been there in some time and wanted to do something different , so we went back there and it was just as great as we remembered. There were 4 of us and 3 of us got a veal dish not on the menu. they were very... More

St. Louis has many fine dining venues. When I want a great Italian meal I head to LoRussos whether it's for business or pleasure. A colleague of mine from Texas turned me on to LoRussos. Every time he comes to STL it's on his bucket list. Their toasted ravioli can't be beat!

We visited LaRusso's last month and had a fabulous dinner. Always friendly with great food and service. I would highly recommend it to all. One of the best Italian restaurants in St. Louis.

While the competition on the Hill for salads and pastas is formidable, LoRusso's offer some interesting spins with their squash filled ravioli's and beet salads. As with other Hill restaurants, the ambience has a great vibe and the prices are probably a little less than many of the other culinary institutions.

Not only the food was dried and overpriced, but I was charged for a glass of wine that I sent back because of poor quality taste. Any other restaurant, they would have taken off of the bill after spending $150 on two people. This is an overpriced restaurant and overrated. The food is similar to an Olive Garden level, but...

Everytime I walk into the door of the Cucina, I feel at home. The hostess/owner and the bartenders are always so glad to see me. The food is so good there are no words. Everything on the menu is amazing and fresh and yummy. The service is beyond compare.

I came here for a company dinner in 1988 and have not stopped. Great food, service and atmosphere. Our favorite is the mushroom trio app and the cesar salad is awesome and oh so fresh. Dinner items: the shrimp is a favorite how they lightly charbroil it yummy and the tenderloin medallions no matter what sauce you get on top... More

Wedding anniversary dinner. Their website offered reservations with comment section. Upon arrival we were given a nice alcove table by one of the owners - very friendly. Our server, Sybil, was incredible. The food selection was large and was delicious. We followed some recommendations made by our server and were very satisfied. The husband other owner served our food. We... More
