My first trip here, this is a small place with tight parking which was decorated up nicely for Halloween. I was in a rare mood for Italian food and overdue for a meal. The interior is pretty common but my server was very helpful and attentive. Offered are pizzas, pasta as well as other beef, veal, chicken and seafood dishes. I had forgotten about many of the St Louis area Italian & pizza places using provel cheese on many dishes. I've tried provel and dislike it so it narrowed my choices immensely. I asked about the Italian sausage on pasta which wasn't on the menu and my server said that was no problem. Offered a choice of salad or soup, I got the minestrone which was excellent, seemed to be made in house as the veggies were still somewhat crisp. The pasta was very disappointing as the sausage was patty formed (I was expecting a link) and was char grilled which killed any other flavor it might have had. Also, the pasta arrived at about room temperature while the sausage patty was blistering hot. The red sauce was common-like store bought. I enjoyed the soup, service and the coffee but was not impressed overall.
