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

We went to Charlie Gitto's on a Sunday soon after they opened (4:30). We had reservations that we made online (very easy and quick). They check your coat at the door, which is nice and saves space in a smaller eating area. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was amazing. We had manicotti, lasagne, and chicken saltimbocca.... More

Four members of our family enjoy a Sunday dinner at Charlie Gittos. Everything from the toasted rav to our dinners to the creme brûlée was delicious! We enjoy two different chicken entrees and gnocchi bologones. The service was wonderful. Everyone was accommodating and kind. I highly recommend this restaurant!!! Definitely a St Louis favorite💞

The food was delicious.I had the backed raviolis as an appetizer and the Cordon Bleau Veal (daily special) as a main course. Both were delicious.

Local friends told me I had to come for the toasted ravioli (which, from what I gather, is a St. Louis staple). The ravioli was a great way to start the meal and everything else I had for dinner was very tasty as well. I ordered the lasagna and my meal probably could have fed the whole table. Huge! Our...

This was my first visit to Charlie Gitto's and it did not disappoint. I was able to make a reservation on Saturday afternoon for that evening, but that also meant that I got a 9:00 reservation. My date and I arrived at 8:30 and took advantage of the complimentary valet. Since we were so early, we were directed to the... More

Absolutely wonderful. Loved our left handed, blue eyed, ginger server Brian. Made the evening even more fun. Shared toasted ravioli and arancini rice balls. Three of us had the veal cordon bleu, as recommended by Brian, no one was disappointed. The fourth dish was a filet of beef that you could cut with a butter knife. Shared a variety of... More

We ate here on Friday, Dec 30, 2016. We had reservations at 8pm for the 5 of us . We arrived about 15 minutes early and waited at the bar until about 8:05pm when we were seated. This was our first visit here for all of us. The waitress was absolutely wonderful, I wish I remembered her name, but she... More

This is a popular St Louis Italian restaurant, and I can see why--it meets people's expectations of what an Italian restaurant is supposed to be. It does not challenge them or shape them in any way, but rather confirms whatever we already know about Italian food. I had a snapper special with risotto that was superior, and my wife had... More
