The beef ravioli and veal cordon blue were excellent. The Caesar salad was delicious. If you're even thinking about dessert have the Italian cream cake. Wonderful!

This is my favorite restaurant in Missouri. The food is amazing but the service is second to none.
My husband and I enjoyed date night at Charlie Gitto's. The French onion soup was wonderful. I had the chicken spedini & my husband had the veal parmigiano. Both dishes were excellent. We finished the meal with tiramisu - we didn’t need desert, but we couldn't resist. The servers were attentive without being too hovering. Overall the dining experience was exceptional!! Thank you Charlie Gitto's.
Absolutely delicious! 😍

Restaurant Week find and bucket list COMPLETE!
Found out that Charlie Gitto's was participating in The Hill Restaurant Week and what a perfect way to support a charity AND be able to dine in a local treasure spot. Fresh pasta, wonderful sauce, it was worth the hype. We even had a server accidentally discard a side dish we were hoping to save for later and it was replaced so customer service was really wonderful. Worth the 40 minute drive on a work night and did not disappoint!

Our waiter went out of his way to make our visit memorable.We told him that it was our first visit to the St.Louis area so it was his job to make us feel welcome and he did.He was very knowledgeable about the food in general and the specials too.He knew wine and made good recommendations.He treated my grandson like he was an important part of the meal...not just a kid at the table.i would recommend this for lunch or dinner..great local flare.
As good as this restaurant is, the seating in the main dining room is crowded. Wish they would take out a couple of tables from this area.

Very enjoyable evening. Charlie Gitto's is 2nd to none in terms of service and helping patrons feel welcome and appreciated. This is an especially great spot for a special occasion. My food was great and the healthy filet of sea bass was perfectly done. My wife had the chicken nuncio and said it was good - not great.
Great food, Great service
My husband and I had a great date night at Charlie Gitto's. We were given a choice of inside or on the patio. We chose the patio. The weather and ambiance was perfect. The garlic toast was excellent. We definitely understand why it is a signature item. The Caesar salad, lasagna and cannelloni were wonderful. I highly recommend the Italian cream cake. So good! We will definitely be back!
Great night out with family
We had a very good experience for this family night out. The quality of the food was outstanding and our service was very good. We sat inside, although I would recommend outdoors if the weather is agreeable. I highly recommend the toasted ravioli. It was tender and delicious. I had a simple linguini and clams, which was good, but not awesome. Also, the portion sizes should be a bit larger, especially considering the prices - which were on the high side.
Gittos knows how to fix every kind of veal, from the simply difficult piccata to the lush nunzio style. Waiters excellent, bussing excellent, one little glitch with the server. Classy, solid Italian food. We'll be back.
It was everything I come to expect from from a four star dinning experience.
Good Food and Service, but...
Great food and service, but watch out if you have separate checks. We didn't see anything on the menu, but if you ask for separate check, the server will automatically add in 20% gratuity. This is normally what we give for excellent service. Fortunately, the service was excellent, but would have objected had it not been so. The calamari is outstanding as well as the lobster filled ravioli.

Fantastic service and friendly staff. The food was amazing as usual.
Derek Andrasko and company are the finest! Perfect
Can never go wrong at Charlie Gitto's on the Hill, Derek Andrasko is the Handler I prefer at the front of the operation. The waiters are awesome, outdoor seating in good weather is great, Bar is pretty although I never sit there! They do what it takes, always our go to when we need redemption.
Our food was phenomenal- seafood pasta and the swordfish special. A little dark for my liking, service was very good until it came time to leave.

Exceptional Italian Food and Ambiance
From the moment we stepped in the door we were treated with respect and cared for like the owner would be. Our server, Tomas, was exceptional with knowledge of the menu and specials. All attending staff were careful and courteous in taking care of every need. The food was absolutely fantastic, lasagna was perfect and the Caesar salad was the best I've ever eaten. Anytime we're in St. Louis we will be sure to make this one of our destinations.
Pricey, but well executed.
Charlie Gitto's has a romantic ambience, impeccable service, and great food. Sure, it's expensive, but the experience is wonderful. A perfect date night location.
Great meal and great service from our waiter Timothy.
Fantastic evening at Charlie Gitto's
We were visiting a local college with our daughter and a friend and a native STL friend of mine suggested visiting Charlie Gitto's. From the minute we checked in, the service was outstanding. I have a GF allergy and our waiter brought out the cook to discuss menu items with me. All four of our entrees and salads were fantastic as were the deserts the youngsters inhaled. The ambiance was of an historic neighborhood treasure. We would return in a heartbeat .
Great food and waiter!
We had a great meal and a tremendous waiter. Service was second to none.
Everything was perfect!
Nice selection of food and wine. Service and dinner was excellent!
As always...we had yet another wonderful dining experience. The food was great and our server and the entire wait staff was as attentive as ever. They say you get what you pay for, and at Charlie Gitto's they always make sure that you get even more than you pay for. Thanks again for another wonderful evening.
Very awesome staff, loved it.
Went for our 8 year anniversary and we had an excellent time. Would definitely recommend!
Never miss an opportunity to eat at The Hill in St. Louis! This was the best meal in the area we've ever had. We'll be back next time we're in town!
Great Italian Food for a Birthday Party
On Sunday Evening , we celebrated my wife's birthday at Charlie Gitto's. I called two days ahead and told them we would have five adults and four children. They set us up in a beautiful room by ourselves but not secluded from the other patrons. Our waiter, Todd, was great along with the rest of the staff. The drinks and bread were quickly brought out. Our food was correctly prepared, piping hot, and delicious. They brought out a Birthday Cake for my wife. It was a Great Evening that we all enjoyed.
All around great
Excellent food, very good service. Would highly recommend
Overall a nice place but the tables were very close to each other and the noise level was a bit too high to call it a "romantic" dining experience.
Great Experience Every Time
This restaurant never lets me down, each experience is better than the last. Their service is amazing and the food comes out hot and cooked to perfection. The front desk is friendly and professional. This is by far my favorite place to dine on the hill.
Was told we "had" to go here for the best Italian food. It was great, but the steak that we had was the stuff dreams are made of. Yup, we got the fried ravioli...and you gotta do that if you're a tourist. It is kinda kitschy and touristy...but again, my husband and I will be talking about that steak for a long time to come!
The host was amazing and caring, the servers and bar tenders were absolutely amazing this was a great find for us!
The food is good but not great--among the four of us only the pasta special was truly special (perfectly made and prepared.) The service was pretentious which I find very unappealing. It is a pleasant stop when we are in town and want to eat a dependable meal on The Hill.
