    Thanks for putting such a great place to sit and enjoy a lovely meal in St. Louis. GREAT!!! We had such a lovely and romantic dinner at Gitto's. The food was spectacular and the desserts were something out of this world. We felt as though we were back in Italy. this was our first time to Gitto's in Chesterfield and the food was as good as the one on the hill. Keep up the great work and service.

    I had half a cod sandwich and half a house salad. The cod was breaded fairly thick, so I removed most of that; overall taste was okay. The salad was small but good (a little heavy on croutons, would have preferred more lettuce or radicchio.) The atmosphere is energetic and lively. Good for groups. The waitstaff was excellent, efficient, and attentive but not intrusive. I had iced water and my glass never went empty, even after we paid the check and lingered. I'll go back to try their pasta or other Italian dishes next time.

    Having dined at CG on the hill we were looking forward to another excellent dining experience at CG from the hill. Alas, we were sorely disappointed. Our entire meals had the taste and consistency of three day old left overs. Service was slow, wait staff seemed indifferent. The wine was good, the vodka on the rocks was good but that's about it. $170.00 for dinner for two, two drinks and dessert.

    The food quality is excellent. the sauces and other items are sent in from the main restaurant on the hill, so the quality is equally good. Convenient and high quality. We had no problems getting reservations for our party of 8.

    Although this store has been around several years at this location, we've just recently discovered that a nice place to have a business or social lunch. Excellent service from our server Cecilia..... never intrusive but water and beverages were always filled and food orders taken with no rush yet promptly. Great for lunch.

    We took our brother and sister-in-law out for dinner to celebrate my brother-in-law's 60th birthday. I had noted that we were going to celebrate on the Open Table reservations, along with some food restrictions of two of the guests. Our waitress acknowledged both the celebration and pointed out food from which the diners should steer clear. The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. A great place to celebrate!

    The food was great. The service was slow from our waitress. Once we finally ordered our entrees, our meal came out really quickly. We saw the drink waitstaff more than we saw our waitress. They either need to work on the spacing of customers being seated or she needs to be more timely. The portions are huge….especially for dessert.

    We went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. Everything we ordered was delicious with good portions. Service started out ok but midway through the meal dropped off. At the end of the meal I had to flag our waiter down just to ask for dessert menus after sitting around for 10 minutes after they took our plates. If the service can improve I'd gladly give it 5 stars.

    Your lunch menu was outstanding. We shared a pizza and tomato salad. We saved room for desert. I had the strawberry shortcake and my partner had the carrot cake. Both were excellent. The service was top notch. The wait staff was attentive and met our every need. The only complaint I have was that the information on Open Table regarding the weekend buffet is incorrect. It states the brunch ends at 3:00 PM but actually it ends at 1:30 PM. We arrived at 2:00 PM thinking we would have the brunch but quickly had to switch gears and enjoyed the lunch menu.

    We had to wait 15 minutes for table.which we had reserved. Table was not fully ready; wiped down before seating. Our table was very neglected after we ordered. We had to complain to manager. No drink refills. No bread. After complaint service good. Gave us free garlic bread. Should have comped something. Very expensive.

    It took longer to get our drinks. We have been here quite often but this was the worst. Our drinks came and we decided to order our appetizer and dinner, big mistake. The appetizer was out before we finished our cocktail. Didn't even finish the appetizer and here comes entree. They box my wife's appetizer. Then they start clearing the table before everyone is done. Asked to speak to manager, he comes by and explains that this is not their policy. No apology, then calls the team for that area to the back room for a reprimand. Then we we're ignored by the manager and waitress, and had to wait for the check. It was sad that listening to the waitress that started every table with "is this a special occasion " it was obvious it wasn't to them

    Great food, Alyssa took fantastic care of us as well as the other six or seven tableas around us. She was very attentive and very thorough. There were two large families at nearby tables and each demanded a lot of attention. Alyssa and the rest of the staff did a great job of handling all of their tables. Thanks again for a great anniversary dinner on 7-5-14. We'll be back.

    It was a little cold inside so we opted for an outdoor table evening though it was raining. The beef spiedini was tender and prepared well. The cobb salad and spinach salad were excellent. Bottles of wine are priced similarly to other restaurants so predictably overpriced. Great service. Always had the water glasses full.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Charlie Gitto's, and it was a great choice. From the wine to the appetizers to the salads to the main course (and the surprise anniversary dessert!) it was fabulous. Even though it's a 30-mile drive to get there, it was well worth the trip. As an eggplant parmesan "snob," I can tell you that that appetizer is wonderful, and large enough for a meal (with leftovers to take home!)

    Need I say more, really? Some of the best food in the country, served in West County. Whether Italian, steak, seafood, no matter, every dish will please. Love it. Wish they would open one in Eugene, OR! Of course, for the true experience, you must also visit the Hill location at some point in your life...

    I feel the food was only fair but expensive. I had spaghetti with meatballs, drank water, my wife had pizza, drank iced tea, small dinner salad's, and desert. The bill was $80 without tip. I doubt that we will return. we have been to Gitto's on the hill several times and I feel it was a better dining experience. Sorry and thank you.

    Placed a reservation thru OpenTable which was quick and easy. Was greeted quickly and seating was fast. Our waiter was wonderful. The food was good...I had the scallop pasta special and my husband had the seafood risotto. I was a bit disappointed in the special, the scallops were the size of raisins and overcooked to a rubber ball consistencie with the home made pasta undercooked and tough. The flavor was good, the details were missing. The seafood risotto again tasted great, but the risotto was over cooked and thick like sticky rice. Dinner was at 5:30 on a Thursday so the kitchen should not have been rushed, but the dishes were both prepared below par. The Lobster Bisque soup was the highlight of the dinner - perfect!
