Very average. Decided to eat here because it was pouring rain out and I was staying at the Drury - the hotel this restaurant is attached to. St. Louis is know for great Italian restaurants, this isn't one of them.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant with beautiful views. The cheese bread is amazing. They allow you to pick how you cook your food which is amazing and not seen very often. Extensive wine list.

We ate dinner here because it was connected to our hotel. Their chairs are incredibly uncomfortable, like sitting in a hole. The food seemed semi homemade, but nothing to write home about. We ordered the basics, spaghetti, lasagna, chicken and nothing tasted great. Wouldn't recommend to a friend.

I have never had such terrible service. We were attending an event across the street and stayed at Drury Hotel as we do annually. We decided this year to eat out since we were finished earlier than we thought. We arrived and waited and waited for someone to acknowledge us. There were 3 adults and 5 children in our party....

We were here in July for the first time and liked it so we came back again. Crystal was our server again. Everyone ordered different entrees (2 veal 2 chicken) and all were excellent. It was a quiet night (again) so we could enjoy a quiet and relaxed dinner. (1/3/2017)

I had the lasagne one night and the cannelloni another - both tasted great! My husband had the Linguini alla Crema di Mare and raved about it.

I love a quaint, quiet, cozy restaurant that feels a little fancy but is still casual. Service was good and it filled my craving for toasted ravioli! Fettuccine was delicious! A perfect walk from the Marriott Grand, we enjoyed this place very much!

My wife and I ate here Friday night. It is a wonderful family restaurant. The food is great and the service is excellent. Everyone there is dedicated to making your evening great. I loved the desert: Homemade Chocolate Tiramisu.

When the marching band competition at the dome ended, a sudden flood of diners hit the restaurant. Every table was full when we got there, so we chilled in the bar for about twenty minutes. The staff seemed harried but efficient. We were seated after that first rush, and the kitchen didn't suffer under the stress. Husband had the shrimp... More
