Well.... In my opinion, Italian dining is a very subjective experience. As well, it's my opinion that most Italian restaurants are either bad, "over the top great" or just another Italian restaurant. I'll also add that when I go to an Italian restaurant I rarely choose red sauce and pasta dishes. I can do a really good job of that at home.

That being said, Sanfilippo's wasn't bad, but it wasn't over the top great either. The portion sizes were nice but the flavor was... just a little bland.

The dining room was very nice, the pricing was reasonable and the service was excellent. They just need to season that chicken and beef a little more.

I went to this restaurant with 5 of my girlfriends last night. It was in our hotel and seemed like a good idea at the time. But it was the biggest mistake we could have made. I ordered spaghetti that tasted like it came out of a can. One my girlfriends ordered salmon and it was completely raw and cold. She tried to send it back and was treated disrespectfully by the waiter and the owner. We have never been treated so badly.

Ate at this restaurant this weeknd while in St Louis. Was within walking distance of downtown hotels. Food was freshly prepared and hot when arrived at the table. Good selection of food and wines. Great homemade sesame rolls. Didn't have dessert, but party of 4 each ordered a different pasta and shared it. Our favorite was the manicotti.
