We had the Chef prepared sevenWe had the Chef prepared seven course dinner. Everything was great.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fav STL restaurantI LOVE ACERO! I had been to Acero once before, and I returned when my family came to visit. The restaurant has a 4 course tasting menu that starts at $30, and there is also an a la cart menu as well. My family ordered from the a la cart menu.
The egg raviolo was absolutely incredible. Rich and creamy cheese mixture topped with an egg yolk. This is hands down my favorite item on the menu.
Gnocco fritto: fried dough/pastry with ham on top. I was not sure what to think of this before I tasted it, but it was savory and light. I recommend this as well.
The service here was fantastic. We never had an empty water glass on the table, and our waiter was attentive and helpful.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, ate outside.Food was excellent, ate outside. Service was superb.

The server didn't know his wines or beers well enough to describe to the table, but other than that experience and service was great. Would highly recommend.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice surpriseWe weren't sure what to expect since we hadn't been there before and just picked because of all the great reviews. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambience and the menu. You could order from one side and get a taste of several things or pay the same amount for an item on the other side of menu for just the main meal. Food was excellent from start to finish.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came to Acero on vacationWe came to Acero on vacation on the advice of the night before's bar tender. She told us to skip The Hill as Acero was STL's best Italian. It is!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, we had an excellentAs always, we had an excellent meal at Acero. Every bite is scrumptious.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites...Great food, and good options for trying a variety of their offerings is available by doing the $30 four course tasting menu. I love the egg raviolo, and the wine list is full of great Italians. The service was quick and attentive, recovering nicely from the somewhat surly hostess who must have been having a rough night. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe drop in to Acero a fewWe drop in to Acero a few times every year and they never disappoint! We look forward to returning for outdoor dining once the weather warms up.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING experience, as alwaysAMAZING experience, as always . . . fabulous food, outgoing and friendly personnel. Acero is definitely one of my favorite restaurants . . . never disapppointing.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Both of my dining experiences at Acero have been wonderful. The food is delicious! I have had and highly recommend the Mussels, ‘Meat Donuts,’ Egg Ravioli, Three Cheese Ravioli, Lamb, and Trout. I choose the tasting menu both times and while the base price is reasonable it can get pricey if you stray over to the ala carte menu to pick items like I did. So worth it though. The staff is friendly and attentive with a team spirit. I was looking around for my server and another stopped in her tracks and asked if she could help. After taking the empty dishes to the kitchen from her own table she came back immediately with the fresh pepper I requested. I am proud to say I live in and thanks to Acero I can eat well in Maplewood.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAcero - Delicious!Acero is wonderful. Our group of four all enjoyed the four-course tasting menu, some unusual beers and an exceptional wine. The portions are right sized resulting in a tasting menu that leaves you satisfied, not hungry. There is a wide variety of options on the tasting menu so you can pick and choose what you'd like. You can also substitute items from the regular menu if there is an item you simply must have. Everyone's food was interesting, perfectly prepared and delicious. Our server was excellent, too, she was professional and had a nice way about her. The price of $30 for all four courses was a delightful bonus resulting in a wonderful evening all around. We will be returning to Acero often.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Beautiful Italian PreparationFirst time going, definitely not last time dining. This modern Italian cuisine is a gourmet experience as well as a treat for the taste buds. The menu is a masterpiece and the food is, well you can't call it food, it's more like beautifully prepared nourishment for your senses. The atmosphere is casual and crisply elegant at the same time. It's nice to have innovative preparations as well as delicious traditional Italian fare. The chef is a talent. Now one of our top 5 dining choices in STL.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, not your usualExcellent food, not your usual Italian restaurant menu. Wine list is limited to only Italian wines.
