John Mineo's is an italian restaurant located in a small plaza in Town and Country just about 1 mile south of Hwy 40/64 off Mason Road. The food is excellent. It is plated by the servers table side from side burners, which gives it that special touch. The service is very prompt and courteous, but not overbearing. It is a... More

We waited for five minutes before being set. The prices are very expensive for lunch. Our bill was $37.00. I ordered the cheese ravioli which consisted of four 2 to 3 inch raviolis. I paid $2.00 for the salad. The cold sesame seeds bread was available. I ate two slices. My husband had the lobster ravioli. Both were warm not... More

My wife and I recently had a very nice dinner at John Mineo's. I had a seafood pasta dish with fresh mussels and my wife had a swordfish steak. I heartily recommend the seafood pasta. Our salads were what you would expect from a high end restaurant and the Brown Squirrel desert was outstanding. The service was friendly and attentive... More

Look no further. This is the best Italian restaurant in St Louis. Both outstanding service and outstanding food. Order the pasta for an appetizer for a real treat. The beef and fish specials are always excellent.

Family was in from out of town and they were interested in going to one of St. Louis' Italian restaurants. We naturally first thought of The Hill but then remembered John Mineo's. We've been to JM a number of times, but often forget about it in a situation like this. We had made reservations and were seated at a corner... More

Our family of five went there on a Friday night w/reservations. We were seated promptly. Ordered from the menu, the food was ok, but not over the top as you would expect from their of style of waiters in black coats, served via heating tables at your table. One order of fish w/risotto lacked much risotto - all broth, didn't... More

Another restaurant we haven't visited in many years. We returned with friends who go there often. The atmosphere is as pleasant as it was years ago and the food very good. Two of us(my wife and I) had the grouper special. The other two meals were supposed to both be veal but the one order got mixed up and came... More

Old school vibe. Very good chicken parmesan (huge serving), caesar salad, house salad and delicious tiramisu. Amazing spinach served in marinara sauce. Terrible bread, which matches the terrible bread we had throughout our trip in Northern Italy, so we can't fault Mineo's for it's authentically bad Italian bread. Definitely on the pricey side, but quality food for the price. Service... More

What a wonderful place to enjoy a night out. Love the atmosphere, decor and friendly service. I had the chicken parmigiana (it was huge and sauce was amazing) and wife had salmon with risotto. Both were fantastic. Would have given 5 stars but Cesar salad was very average. Will try house next time.
