Reasonably priced for an above average restaurant in a nice area with a good garden area set back off the road. Menu interesting and varied and all dishes our party ordered were very nice. Beer and wine selections also good.

We went at night when we got there it was all lit up. It had vegetarian options which I loved and the dessert was the best. Plus it had a cool interior.

Saturday brunch with the girls. Awesome service from the server with helping us decide on the wine and the food was delicious! A perfect day on the patio that has lots of umbrellas to shade from the sun. I had the veggie hash! Would definitely recommend!

We had a cool enough evening (rare in August in St. Louis!), so we dined outside at Bar Italia. The food was solid Italian, well prepared and beautifully served.

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

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.
