    I am a foodie and appreciate a fine meal, good wine and good service. Charlie Gitto's Hollywood Casino has a long way to go to be in the same class as other fine Italian restaurants in the St. Louis area. Its not as good as the other Charlie Gitto's on the Hill and in Chesterfield. The wine list is so outdated, straight from the 80's. My Veal Milanese, pounded thin arrived on a bare plate no garnish or sides, was dry and flavorless. It was taken off the bill. The pasta dishes were good and our server was nice, inexperienced, but very attentive. It was a birthday celebration. A complimentary cake arrived at the table, very nice but it was frozen.

    We had the before 6 special that included lasagna and salad. It is perfect every time. And the salad was delicious. The before 6 price is unbeatable for the portions you receive. Took home a slice of decadent chocolate cake that I have to eat at 3 different times because it is so rich.

    I had the Veal Parmesan w/fettuccini and my wife had Baked Spaghetti & Meat Balls. It was the best. For appetizers we had the toasted ravioli and cheese bread-amazing. And we also got the wedge salad-best around. For dessert I had the pumpkin cheese cake and my wife had the banana cheese cake. It was by far our best meal of 2014. Service is excellent even thought it was a crowded Saturday evening.

    We have had many wonderful dining experiences at Charlie Gitto's in the past. The meal and service Sunday fell far short of Mr Gitto's reputation and standards. All around substandard food and service this time. We hosted 3 friends for dinner - 2 friends who have been our guests there before and 1 out of town friend who was anxious to go from hearing of our past experiences. Everyone was very disappointed in the quality of the food and service.

    The wife and I enjoyed a very good meal. Started with toasted ravioli. Some of the best. Dinner salads were spot on. And the excellent entrees also had large portions. We left with doggie bags. Great meal was followed up with even better service. The only turn off is the lack of dress code for such a fine dining establishment. You have some people in sweats and wearing hats etc. That's the crowd at the casino for you.

    I usually rave about the food or call it what it is. This time I am raving about the service. Mark, our server, really took care of us. He knew the menu inside and out, he was able to modifiy a meal with no issues, he knew the wine list and best of all he knew how to serve Coffee. Most restaurants ignore their coffee service but this time, Mark knew his stuff. He heated the cup before adding the coffee, so I got Hot coffee for a change! Such a nice touch. He said he has been doing this well over 20 years and even grew up in the business. He knew how to joke with us, how to listen to our request and he knew how to follow up. I will be back just for Mark. Be sure to ask for him if you go. OH by the way - the food was great too!

    Open Table made dinning here so simple. We made an early dining reservation for 5pm and it was delicious. We all loved our meals (Manicotti and Cannelloni) . Always make time for the Desserts even if you share one for the table. Our Chocolate Cake was perfection! We were especially glad they were able to seat us despite only having 2 of the 4 guests upon arrival!

    I have eaten at Charlie Gitto's twice a week for years. It is always a winner. The pasta dishes are exceptional and the old adage about never ordering steak from an Italian restaurant is put to rest at Gitto's. Their steak offerings are as good as the best steak houses in St. Louis.

    Our dining experience was just perfect! Not only was the food WONDERFUL but the service was impeccable. I can't say enough about the attentiveness of our server, Rick, and his server assistant (I apologize for not remembering his name). Both paid attention to detail and were very cordial. We ordered the Veal Parmesan, Pasta with the Clams, Seafood Pasta and the Filet Nunzio...portion sizes were generous and every entrée was delicious!

    The food at Charlie Gitto's at Hollywood never disappoints. The service was very good as it usually is. While there were many open tables at the time of our reservation, we were seated at a table for 2 against a wall, next to a table of 13! The noise level was so bad, my guest and I could not talk to each other. It was entertaining listening to the party of 13 try to divide up the check and figure out their tip.

    Always happy at Charlie Gitto,s Food,Service, always Great A little pricey but only because I order ala carte. Can't pass up their Signature Shrimp, & Eggplant Appetizer ,add a wedge salad with their wonderful bread & you have a perfect meal. They also make a tasty Bloody Mary & great Lobster Bisque If you go for their Early Special,s it's really a Good Deal

    Our server was great. Three of us had the Prime Rib Special which was okay, although I wish I would have ordered one of the pasta dishes which are usually always very good. The Prime Rib was a bit fatty and I think a bit over-priced. All in all, we had a good time and I'm sure we will be visiting again soon.

    Dined on 6/24/2014
    I'll start by saying that the food was excellent (veal and manicotti). The servers and other staff were all hustling.....even the manager was bringing food to the tables. The only reason for the four stars for service is that they seemed short-staffed despite working so hard. The reason I will not be going back is the smoke that drifts into the restaurant. You have to walk through the smoky casino building to get to the restaurant and unfortunately, the stale smoke follows you (we were in the back of the restaurant).
