We went here one night for a late dinner after a day of meetings! The only guests in here were people going to the same convention as us. There were 7 of us at all table and everyone enjoyed their meal. Good service, reasonable prices, nice size servings!

Ate here twice. Food was good. Only complaint was the hours they were open over the July 4th weekend.

This restaurant is next door to the Drury Inn Convention Center, so I went there for convenience but also, I like Italian food. The first time I ate a salad there and took the entree and bread to my room. The second time (and you don't go back to a place unless you were impressed the first time) I was... More

Went here for a work party. Service was good and the good was outstanding. It is more of a dress up place so you may want to remember that before you go.

JF's is quite hidden, but quite worth the hunt. I discovered it via Hot Sauce and took my out-of-town brother for some quality dining. After giving our order, the owner came over to introduce himself. We talked for a few minutes, but when he learned I was parked on the street around the corner, he implored me to move into... More

We were looking for Italian food, it was close to our hotel. The staff was very friendly, the food was OK. The atmosphere... was very dated and we heard another guest ask if the lights could be turned up... it was really dark in there. Probably wouldn't eat there again, but, not sorry we did, once.

I read about this resturant on Trip Advisor, and we wanted to have italian food in St. Louis. We were most pleased upon arrival to be invited to the blessing of the bread ceremony on St. Joseph day, and the hospitality extended to us continued throught out our stay. Our waitress Peaches was most helpful and hospitable. We were greated... More

Pastas are always a great choice at this restaurant. We had great service even though we arrived at a later time to eat dinner. It is a little small so accommodating large groups are difficult.
