Bar Italia is truly a melting pot. It's in the heart of the Central West End, in St. Louis, Missouri. You will meet people from all over the world, while dining there. They make all their guests feel welcome. Their menu is outstanding! They have a beautiful patio, if you enjoy outdoor dining. I recommend the goat cheese appetizer, Frutti... More

The weather cooled and we went with two friends to Bar Italia. We had a lovely trout (very tasty) and beef tenderloin (delightful). Our friends had carpaccio with capers and olive oil as well as pasta marinara that was so yummy, while the fourth had a penne pasta dish (sorry but I forget the details) and she took the leftovers...

One of my favorite places in St. Louis/ Central West End, not only because of the atmosphere but also because of the food. Charming professional waiters, knowledgeable about the menu, attentive and with wonderful suggestions if one is hesitant. Excellent appetizer, salad and soup menu. Lunch, happy hour and dinner - all good for different reasons. I have been here... More

Bar Italia is conveniently located in the heart of Maryland Plaza in the Central West End and offers spacious and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating options. The menu offers a very appealing selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees and, in... More

The food was excellent and portions were plenty. We sat on the patio for lunch and there are lots of umbrellas and lots of cool shade. The patio was casual but the staff was attentive. Not intrusive.

Went with a group graduating - service was quick for lunch - food was solid but not spectacular - would suggest for business lunch.

I have visited twice over the last 5 years and I am happy to report that the experience is still as it was 5 years ago - very nice! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food is good. The outdoor dining area is a treat. Nice wine list. Convenient location in Central West End. Long history in the area.

This is a cool restaurant of the intelligentsia...evey time I visit St. Louis I eat there, and the food has never disappointed. This time, before AND after my goddaughter's graduation, we ate delectable Italian fare, including a ground lamb pasta, excellently prepared salmon, and a panna cotta dessert to die for! The waitstaff is attentive and informed, and the bread... More

Really top drawer Italian cuisine here, from the appetizers to dessert, our meal was excellent. Started off with the asparagus and prosciutto which was served with a lemon aioli, Parmesan and a fresh Italian bread. The asparagus was cooked perfectly al dente. Our main courses were both pastas. I had the scallops and shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce served... More

This is about the 5th time we have been to Bar Italia. We were going to go to Bar Louie, but it was way too loud. We switch and it was great! Wonderful food and excellent service. Check it out.
