Charlie Gitto's from the Hill - Chesterfield
Consistantly goodOur third visit and I'm already in a rut. Very good cannelloni and nice veal Marsala. Tried the tomato and mozzarella salad (capresse?) and it was good even though local tomatoes are not yet in evidence. Wish the place had tablecloths though. It might make it less noisy and would certainly bring the decor up to the price point of the food,.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Taste of West County menuThe Taste of West County menu had a variety of choices. The chopped salad and beef tenderloin were delicious. The portions were just right.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Specials$25 for three course dinners. Full size portions for appetizers, main course and desert. The blood orange gelato was a great finish. The menu has a wide variety of light dinning offerings as well many full dinners. You can't miss with the specials.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best food in allStill the best food in all of West County -- maybe all of St Louis!!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food,cold room.The meals were very good, I had the veal marsala and my wife had one of the chicken dishes. I would recommend a air balance be done, as our side of the room was about 60-63 degree and blowing right on us, while diners on the in side of the room were warm and asked for more air conditioning. (we were along the window line).6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur go to favoriteThis restaurant never disappoints. The service is always excellent. Everyone works together. The signature dishes are great and dependable. We are on the road twice a month from Rolla,MO to Nashville, TN and they always seem ti be open. They always have specials that are fantastic. The desserts exceptional. The atmosphere was very cosy and comfortable. We felt very relaxed.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNo one restaurant makes pastaNo one restaurant makes pasta like Charlie Gittos!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe noise levelThe food was excellent, wonderful service, and lovely setting for evening with friends. However, the noise level makes it diddicult to have conversations across the table. The ceilings are curved and the sound bounces off of it and your words come back to you and so does everyone else's. It is difficult to find a restaurant these days that is conversation friendly.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceAs always, Charlie Gitto's never fails to impress. From great service to exceptional food, it's always a pleasure dining there. This trip was an anniversary dinner, and it was a lovely evening. Thanks as always for your wonderful customer experience!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe 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. Great food and outstanding service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatMy Daughter brought me here for Mother's Day .... Service and Food was outstanding .... I would definitely recommend this Restaurant to mature and respected families5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery busy but goodGood thing we had a reservation as the place was packed. Pretty tight quarters and kind of noisy, but we were between two big tables. Good draft beer selection. Had the cesear salad but saw the capresse(sp ?) salad and wished we had tried that instead.
Good cannelloni. I liked the tortellini but my husband thought it was too "unconventional" - I thought it was very sophisticated. We will be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNoiseService was excellent, food amazing. I love this restaurant. Was a bit noisy for a date- but it was a full house!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed having lunch outside.Enjoyed having lunch outside. Nice waiter and good salad.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the seafood risottoGreat service. Nice wine list. Big portions so you have a second meal the next day. Seafood risotto outstanding.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, as usual. One of our favorite restaurants!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat recommendation!We were steered to this restaurant by a St. Louis friend. And he was right. Lots of fun and excitement and great food. Our table had the sea bass, chicken saltimboca, spaghetti and meatballs and seafood risotto. Everything was excellet and the sea bass was divine.
I would highly recommend Charlie Gittos for great food and a fun time.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch Menu ExcellentWe had Lobster/Crab Ravoili with the Tomato Mozzarella Salad - excellent. Our server never let my iced tea go down. Fantastic service.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe opted for a simple fare...sandwiWe opted for a simple fare...sandwiches, and they were very good. Our server was not good. When I wanted fruit with my sandwich, he said "get the fries, they are the best" when I told him I was a diabetic, he mumbled "I said fries, not pie". He also tried to take my food before I was finished 2 times...saying he was sorry, but they were really crowded and was trying to move his tables along. I guess since we were not drinking alcohol, or having a big dinner we were not of any value to him....We also had the $20 check from Open Table...that really put the icing on the cake. We left a 20% tip, before the discount..because I am a chef and know that tips are your meal ticket (no pun). We will be back, but will not have the same server.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been numerous times,We've been numerous times, and have never been disappointed. Nice size portions for a good price, and the service is always top notch.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Italian fodFabulous Italian food. Service was great and Jimmy took care of us. 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!! I will be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI and my family have dinedI and my family have dined many many times at Charlie Gitto's, and have yet to be disappointed. 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 AMAlways Great!This is our go-to place in Chesterfield. This was our last reservation but we sat in the bar recently and weren't disappointed. Same great food and service. Don't miss the Tortellina Alla Panna.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood jobThe last time I was at Gittos, the food was too heavily salted. This has obviously been fixed. The food was excellent, well cooked and not oversalted.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
