Service excellent, food excellent, atmosphere excellent. Would highly recommend the bone in veal Parmesan . Watch out, it will be hard for one person to tackle. 2nd time there on a visit to St. Louis after 2 years. A must!!!

You would never know how nice this place is from the area it sits in and would probably never go unless you knew to go find it. Absolutely wonderful. Beautiful inside. A bit upscale. Casual clothes are okay but they will ask you to remove a hat. Delicious and authentic. Highly recommended.

Came here because a friend recommended the toasted ravioli. It was very good. We also had tortolini and a spinach salad with shrimp. The tortolini was good but the cream sauce was too heavy. Prefer a red sauce. The spinach salad had too much dressing which drowned out the taste. They need more entrees with red sauce a fewer with... More

Start with their special shrimp dish and then get ready for the main event, traditional veal parma. Beautiful to look at and unbelievably moist and full of flavor. Worth a trip to St Louis!

Stopped by for dinner on a Sunday night. We had a 7pm reservation but had to wait at the bar for about 10 minutes. The place then really started to fill up. It did get a bit loud, but the noise level did not spoil our time at all. Plenty of Italian classics to choose from. Good attentive service!

I have been here years ago and remembered it to be good. But the last 2 times have been at their Hollywood Casino location which were just average. My nephew was in town last night and wanted to go to the location on the Hill so I thought I'd give it another chance, hoping that the original was better. Sad... More

Excellent food and dinner. Our server was attentive and offered great suggestions from the menu. The food was excellent. They had a great sangria that I would highly recommend. The lobster bisque was the best I've ever had. We will definitely be back.

Thank klgb2014
