Our service was outstanding and this is probably a great place for drinks, but unfortunately we were here for dinner. I definitely wouldn't recommend for dinner. Although the menu had a wide variety of choices, everyone in our party agreed the food was sub-standard - seemed almost a step below cafeteria quality food. The overall atmosphere was great, our service... More

We went here for toasted ravioli and it was good. The appetizer portion is a good size for two people, maybe even three. I also enjoyed the salad that came with my meal. The entrees however, really did not resemble what we expect from Italian food. The bolognese sauce was really just a red gravy cooked with a little meat... More

We were disappointed in the service and the food. We had appetizers, salad and bread. After an hour and a half, we are finally leaving. So sad it was not a great experience!

We had a 6 pm reservation on the evening before the 1/2 marathon for 5 people. We wanted to get done in plenty of time to let our food digest and get back to our hotel at a decent time. When we arrived they said our table was not ready. That is understandable but we waited another 45 minutes before... More

Unfortunately, I ate a sandwich pretty late in the day so I wasn't able to eat dinner. My coworker did and he said the lasagna was excellent. I ordered dessert and it was really good. Next time I am in St Louis, I will definitely eat dinner here.

When they say "house specialty" they mean it! This lasagna was soooo good! The portion size was big and the flavor was even bigger! The cheese was so fresh and creamy! The best lasagna I have ever had!

We enjoyed our wait staff, food and atmosphere. Very Italian feel. St. Louis is known for Italian and the Hill, the city's Little Italy, has amazing restaurants to beat. This was a great place downtown. It is literally 2 blocks from the 8th and Pine Metro Subway station too.

Menus are dirty, and choice is limited. I had a cesar salad, chicken was fine but crutons had a very unpleasant back taste. At least the staff is friendly.
