Was staying downtown for a convention and decided that this place looked authentic enough. Very nostalgic and food was pretty good along with a good service. Would recommend.

After an absence of several years returned to a venerable favorite Italian restaurant to celebrate a birthday with our godson. The walls are covered with signed celebrity photos, many of them visiting athletes. Wonderful Italian food including classic St. Louis toasted ravioli. We also enjoyed eggplant parmesan, seafood linguini, and seafood ravioli. Linguini was loaded with clams, scallops, and shrimps... More

We couldn't decide what to get so we ordered two appetizers and a small plate of Bolognese. The sauce in the pasta was almost as hood as mine. The toasted ravoli and mussels were superb. Will definitely come back

Tried the toasted ravioli appetizer, because of all the reviews but I wasn't impressed. The bruschetta topped with waxy cheese blob wasn't good, either. Cool atmosphere with all the signed memorabilia.

This was a great St. Louis Cardinals restaurant a few blocks away from Busch Stadium. The restaurant was full of signed photos of people who have eaten there over the years. People like Tommy Lassorda, Tony Larussa, Darrell Porter to name a few. Highly recommend the lasagne. I'll be back.

My daughters and I visited St Louis for the World Robotics competition. We heard Charlie Gitto's is the place is get toasted ravioli so we went. The toasted ravioli was good, but I feel like the rest of the food was ok at best. The French onion soup was disappointing. The bruschetta was basically toasted Italian bread with a slab... More

This was recommended by a friend and they were right. If you have never had toasted rave then you are in for a treat. I had lasagna for my meal and it was out of this word! Everyone in the group love the food they selected. Don't miss this place!!

We recently had dinner at Charlie Gitto's downtown. Delicious! But what we REALLY liked was the family atmosphere and we were dining as a couple. The building was originally a pharmacy, with the pharmacists being upstairs and lowering the meds down to the customers. How do I know this? Because we visited with Charlie's grandson, Louie, who is now with... More

Can't be beat for old school Italian with a great and vibrant atmosphere. Hustling wait staff that are very attentive. Everyone is nice... even to silly Cubs fans.

Our group of 18 people from all over the United States attended the NCAA Wrestling Tournament in Saint Louis March 15 - 19, 2017. We ate all four of our evening meals at Charlie Gitto's Downtown Restaurant. The food was terrific and the service was exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant.
