Charlie Gitto's from the Hill - Chesterfield
We have visited many timesWe have visited many times in the past and were not disapointed. Large portions, good food, outstanding service was attentive without being overbearing. Service was just a little rushed as very little time between courses, but that is a minor issue.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe have visited Charlie Gitto's in Chesterfield on several occasions and it never lets us down. The food is always outstanding and the staff is professional and inviting. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because it was Mother's Day which meant they needed to add more tables to accommodate all the families, including our family of 10, that wanted to honor their mom's with the best Italian restaurant around. It was a little tight but the staff and patrons made the best of it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBringing the Hill to ChesterfieldIt's great to find a transplant that has gone so well as Charlie Gitto's from the Hill.

Cheese garlic bread and toasted ravioli are wonderful as appetizers. Veal dishes are amazing. Chicken Nunzio was such a huge order and of course the pasta is great and they offer wheat and gluten free.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner. FoodHad a wonderful dinner. Food and service were excellent!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated immediately,We were seated immediately, good when you have elderly parents with you! We were seated near the bar area and there was a very loud and obnoxious behaving couple near our table, so we asked immediately, to be moved. The next table we were placed at, turns out had been reserved so we had to move again (they were very apologetic). The third table was fine but had cold air blowing on us and they kindly turned it down.
It was difficult to decide as each appetizer looked wonderful. The dishes we chose were, eggplant Napolean, a halibut special with risotto, lamb saltombica and pasta with chicken. Every dish was excellent. The appetizer (garlic dip, can't remember exact name) was amazing and garlic to the max, which my husband loved.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at this locationWe have eaten at this location twice and it was fantastic both times. The pork osso bucco was amazing! Service was tremendous. I think this will be our go-to spot every time we come to the St Louis area.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cheft makes great food!!The cheft makes great food!! Service is top notch!!

The Ward Family4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Seafood Pasta SuzanneThe Seafood Pasta Suzanne was amazing and my fiancé enjoyed the salmon immensely. The portions were generous. We enjoyed ourselves.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently greatCharlie Gitto's is rapidly becoming a favorite of ours for casual nights out. Food is very good overall - they have a few rough edges (overcooked Salmon on the last visit, skimpy seafood quantities in the seafood pasta), but for the price in Chesterfield it's hard to beat. Great environment - beautiful lighting and decoration. Service is impeccable. It is a little loud on weekend nights but not overwhelming, and not very kid friendly, but these aren't deal breakers.
Recommendations - try the steak, the chicken pasta, and the sorbetto or gelato for dessert.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great meal!Been here a few times and always consistent whether if the meal or the service. The Gitto's in Chesterfield has a more upscale feel while the one on the hill a much more old school Italian restaurant feel.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a waitress who didWe had a waitress who did an awesome job. One complaint I have is that I do not like when they clear the plates the second someone is done eating and box up the leftovers to sit on the table while other people are still eating. It makes the people who are still eating feel rushed. I would prefer the staff to wait until everyone is finished with their meal. I also thought the restaurant was noisy although it really was not crowded. We had calamari for an appetizer - have had better elsewhere.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Charlie Gitto's!We are never disappointed with the great menu items as well as daily specials. Fresh salad ideas. Wonderful desserts. Favorite is the chicken spedini.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the best dinningThis was one of the best dinning experiences I've had in St. Louis. I felt like an honored guest. The pace of the meal was perfect. No rush no lag between courses. Just a great evening. My server Kattie did a wonderful job and Carie the bartender kept up with this group of professional drinkers!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
