Went here last night with some colleagues as we were in St. Louis on business. If you are looking for a fancy atmosphere, then this is not the place for you. However, do not let the exterior of the building stop you from entering. The food is fabulous! We had the calamari and toasted ravioli for appetizers. I had the lasagna for an entree....it was divine! I am extremely critical of lasagna, but this is one of the best I have ever had! Lots of cheese and a blend of tomato and cream sauce....yummy! The wait staff is very friendly, and we did not have to wait too long in between courses. If you are in downtown St. Louis, do not miss this!

As always Charlie Gittos presents exceptional dishes in a great atmosphere. The crab cakes are the best in St Louis. Entrees are a little pricey but more than worth every penny. Our "special occasion" go to restaurant.

We were a party of 3 male adults, turned up out of the blue, one of us had a boxing hoodie, the other had a one eyed patch which looked like something out off rocky and as for myself I had a Star Wars t-shirt. Well anyone who gives us a table must be a saint and that's exactly what the lovely staff did.
So the portions were huge and the quality was very good. Staff very knowledgeable of the food could of been less robotic and more interactive, that was the only criticism I have. Overall I would most definitely go again.....and again.......and again....
Any restaurant who can cook squid properly needs a good review. Be warned the squid starter is huge and to be shared if you are used to English portions.
