Always have a great meal and good service. After reading some reviews the one by Cici47 really gets on my nerves. Said they ate all the lobster out of the risotto then the rest went back to the kitchen. I'll bet after eating all the lobster they wanted a full refund. People like you cici47 need to not go out...

One of the best Italian restaurants in St. Louis, and has been for years. We moved away 11 years ago, and recently visited again, and were so glad it was still so delicious!

The food was great! Try to apple salad with goat cheese, candied pecans and bacon. Lobster risotto is so creamy.

I have been to this restaurant several times and never been disappointed. This last time, however, was different. Restaurant was exceedingly crowded and it was very difficult to hear other members of our party. This has never happened before at this place. Menu didn't seem as extensive as before and staff was harried. This restaurant was amazing for its leisurely... More

We hadn't been here for some years & were looking forward to a great meal. The Frito Misto were terrific as were the lamb chops and the corvina fish special. However, a signature dish - the lobster risotto was so very salty it was inedible. Picking out the pieces of lobster meat was the only way to eat it. The... More

We were here for a rehearsal dinner of 30 - 40 people. The appetizers were good, but I didn't get to have dinner because I had to take my 4 year old home. Dinner started at 5:30, they didn't start taking orders until after 7. Also, I never got a refill on coffee or the cup of water my daughter... More

Had an awesome time here for my birthday. So many great dishes. Ended up with a lot of take home items that will still be delicious. Highly recommend the lobster risotto, the toasted ravioli and the lasagna. Oh and they gave me a complimentary caramel macchiato for my birthday!

Wow, the food is great here. I've tried a lot of toasted ravioli (a STLO signature dish), but these were the best I've had. The lobster risotto was delish (not on the menu, but always served - note it's $24), and the straw and hay was equally good. They make their own pasta here, and that makes a huge difference....

This restaurant is listed in several publications as being one of the best Italian restaurants in St. Louis. I'm not so sure. Our sever was attentive and helpful. We had a reservation and were seated on time. The food portions were huge, much too large. Pappardelle Bolognese was made with sweet sausage. I've never read a recipe that included sausage.... More
