Cosistency, consistency. We've never had anything but a great meal at Gittos, with service to match. Traditional Italian at it's best. Our waiter Tim (also the wine captain) was great, attentive. Everything came out timely, excellently prepared, and HUGE portions.

We were in St Louis for a business meeting and once the meeting was done several of us wanted to have something better than hotel food. One of our colleagues who lives in ST. Louis recommended Charlie Gittos on the hill. Our colleague goes there often and ,are the reservation for us. When we arrived we were met at the... More

Gitto's has several locations in and around St. Louis. The food is a bit above average but certainly a nice casual find. I like the Hill location because of the old style and the history. Many ball players visit here when they are in town, Ravioli, salads are a great beginning. Not that fancy but good.

My wife and I had an excellent dining experience at Charlie Gitto's On the Hill. First thing you should know is that the restaurant is located in an older neighborhood in the Hill area of St. Louis. So parking is at a premium. They do have valet parking available; but if you wish to self park, you will need to... More

We went to Charlie Gitto's on a Sunday soon after they opened (4:30). We had reservations that we made online (very easy and quick). They check your coat at the door, which is nice and saves space in a smaller eating area. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was amazing. We had manicotti, lasagne, and chicken saltimbocca.... More

Four members of our family enjoy a Sunday dinner at Charlie Gittos. Everything from the toasted rav to our dinners to the creme brûlée was delicious! We enjoy two different chicken entrees and gnocchi bologones. The service was wonderful. Everyone was accommodating and kind. I highly recommend this restaurant!!! Definitely a St Louis favorite💞

The food was delicious.I had the backed raviolis as an appetizer and the Cordon Bleau Veal (daily special) as a main course. Both were delicious.

Local friends told me I had to come for the toasted ravioli (which, from what I gather, is a St. Louis staple). The ravioli was a great way to start the meal and everything else I had for dinner was very tasty as well. I ordered the lasagna and my meal probably could have fed the whole table. Huge! Our...

This was my first visit to Charlie Gitto's and it did not disappoint. I was able to make a reservation on Saturday afternoon for that evening, but that also meant that I got a 9:00 reservation. My date and I arrived at 8:30 and took advantage of the complimentary valet. Since we were so early, we were directed to the... More
