“St. Louis Tradition”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Charlie Gitto's is a tradition for our family every time we come to St. Louis. Their Cardinal atmosphere is so much fun! Not to mention the great Italian food. They are always busy so make sure you leave plenty of time, but totally worth the wait.

“Great service, excellent food”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Penne Borghese was excellently flavored, Linguini with fresh clams was wonderfully presented and generously served with clams in the shell, and seafood risotto was out of this world. Go for a special dinner, you won't be disappointed. Priced very reasonably, take your leftovers home and enjoy them again later.

“Good, but didn't live up to the hype”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We visited The Hill location which was written up in guide books as having excellent toasted ravioli, a St Louis dish. We thought it was good, but not any better than any other ravioli I've had. We both ordered the lasagna which was good, but not exceptional. The portions were large. I would recommend reservations on weekends.

“Great Italian food experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

The pastas are fresh and outstanding overall. The desserts were delicious as well. The service is great and very friendly. The back porch area is a great venue weather permitting. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice fine dining experience.

“we love this place”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Unfortunately we live 2 hours drive from this restaurant. We stayed overnight in St Louis before we flew to the Bahama's. We ate at Charlie Gitto's. As always dinner was fabulous. It was a great start to our family vacation.
