Well worth the drive from MN. We loved the homemade noodles. Parking was easy, staff was very friendly and informative. The flourless cake for dessert was to die for and more than the three of us could share.

The first time (16 years ago) I took my future-wife here we ate outside on the patio. The food was the best I had tasted to that point in my life and the service was impeccable. Forget the 10%-20% tip calculations, this service is worth 30%!! We've been a few more times since then, including my proposal to her on... More

My family and I had dinner at Charlie Gitto's last friday night. This was our first time but not our last. The food was incredible and the service was first rate. A very authentic Italian restaurant.

I visited with a group of 8 for my mother-in-law's birthday. Charlie Gitto's is a very classic Italian fine dining restaurant. Inside it's quiet and fairly dimly lit. There is a host at the front wearing a tux and the wait staff is wearing white button downs and ties. The clientele, on the other hand, ranges from suits to polo... More

Awesome dining experience on the Hill … The maître d' was efficient but yet comical and entertaining … The waiter was very efficient and professional … The food was delish needless to say If you wear a hat, you will be asked to remove it … very classy :)

Cosistency, consistency. We've never had anything but a great meal at Gittos, with service to match. Traditional Italian at it's best. Our waiter Tim (also the wine captain) was great, attentive. Everything came out timely, excellently prepared, and HUGE portions.

Gitto's has several locations in and around St. Louis. The food is a bit above average but certainly a nice casual find. I like the Hill location because of the old style and the history. Many ball players visit here when they are in town, Ravioli, salads are a great beginning. Not that fancy but good.

My wife and I had an excellent dining experience at Charlie Gitto's On the Hill. First thing you should know is that the restaurant is located in an older neighborhood in the Hill area of St. Louis. So parking is at a premium. They do have valet parking available; but if you wish to self park, you will need to... More
