Acero is the place to be treated like family, where the food is beautiful and delicious, and the staff is gracious, especially Marco. I have to order the antipasto because it is always fantastic. They present it with cut meat, Italian cheese, olives, almonds...sooooo good....More

Creative food, Italian but more creative especially for St. Louis, comfortable atmosphere. Parking can be difficult sometimes. The Fregola and Egg Ravioloi were amazing and will be worth a return trip alone. You seldom see white anchovies on a menu but Acero has them. Wonderful....More
