My Daughter brought me here for Mother's Day .... Service and Food was outstanding .... I would definitely recommend this Restaurant to mature and respected families

The noise level
The 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.

Great dining experience
As 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!

Our go to favorite
This 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.

Good 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).

Still the best food in all of West County -- maybe all of St Louis!!

$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.

The Taste of West County menu
The Taste of West County menu had a variety of choices. The chopped salad and beef tenderloin were delicious. The portions were just right.

Our 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,.

We were in town to celebrate a special 80th birthday. The table was set in a quiet corner for 12; the waitress did an outstanding, professional job serving drinks, entrees and a special birthday cake. The food was excellent. Everyone attending was from out of the area Florida, Illinois and Columbia, MO, so the word will spread about Charlie Gitto's from the Hill!

Went the extra mile...
We came to Charlie Gitto's to celebrate the recent marriage of my step sister and her husband which I noted on our Open Table reservation. Everthing from the wine to the toasted ravioli to the service was outstanding. Although this restaurant is more expensive than we ususally choose, it was WELL WORTH IT. At the end of the meal, our server presented our friends (without our asking!) with a traditional Italian wedding cake and candle in celebration of their day. It was beautiful and a wonderful surprise and really made their night extra sepcial.

My husband and I celebrated our 8th Anniversary by dining at Charlie Gitto's. The food was excellent and the service even better. Jimmy took care of everything including a nice treat for our special day! This place is a winner!
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service.
The Veal Nunzio (medallions of veal with crabmeat in a light lemon sauce) was perfectly cooked. Tender veal and not too heavy on the sauce.
Service was excellent.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice night out
We all had pasta dishes which were excellent. The chopped salad was also tasty & large enough to share. In general pricing was a bit higher than similar establishments (particularly for wine) but the offerings on the kid menu were quite reasonable. Very nice atmosphere. Definitely worth checking out if your in the area.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still the best!
We had a family reunion of sorts and everyone was very impressed with the atmosphere, the wait staff and the food of course!

Took a friend from out of town to Charlies Gittos in Chesterfield & he loved it. I've been there several times & I'm never disappointed.

Great Place for our Business Lunch
I was looking for a great place to host a business lunch in the Chesterfield area for an associate visiting from Chicago. Charlie Gitto's rating on Zagat made it a no brainer. I viewed a number of Charlie Gitto's dishes online and couldn't wait to eat there. Our server was very knowledgeable and courteous, exactly what you'd expect from fine dining. The food was top notch!

Charlie Gittos Still Has It!
It's been many years since I've been to Charlie Gittos. The service is still great and highly professional. The atmosphere still feels like it's "family" but the mood can change according to what "your occasion" is. My first time there was a quiet dinner for two. The waiter took our que and watched from a distance for any hints that we may need something. He gave us some privacy.
My most recent visit was an office lunch. We were interviewing a young man who may be joining our firm. The atmosphere and service was just what we needed. We could be serious and hear each other's voices without talking loud but we were also able to enjoy a laugh without being the focus of everyone's attention.
Thank you for the experience!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was really good
We enjoyed our dinner at Gittos. I have not been very impressed with Gittos downtown or Gittos on the Hill but this location had far better food. My chicken spedini was the best I have had.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Requested a "romantic" quiet table to celebrate our anniversary and they reserved a 6 top in an an alcove for the 2 of us. Pork Osso Buco melted in our mouth - 1 serving would have been enough for two. Lobster bisque was also wonderful. Service was very attentive.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for a special occasion
This was our first visit to this restaurant. We celebrated our 44th Wedding Anniversary here and it was great! They had a some-what private table set-aside for us. The wait staff were very attentive, but not overbearing. The manager stopped by to see if everything was okay and if we were celebrating. We asked for recommendations for wine and the entree from the waiter. He did an excellent job! As a surprise after dinner, he brought us a traditional Italian Celebration cake on a decorated plate wishing us a Happy Anniversary! We will definitely return.

nice dining experience
My reservation was ready when I arrived after booking through Opentable. The service was prompt; however, my waiter was distracted by a larger table next to me. I ordered wine, but he brought me the wrong thing, and he was off so quickly, I didn't have a chance to catch him until he stopped by again. I ordered a small salad with my dinner which was just the right size. The portion of chicken marsala was much bigger than I expected so I had another enjoyable meal the next evening at home! I would go again. I liked being able to experience The Hill without going there.

Great Italian Restaurant
We were in the Chesterfield area and used Open Table to search for a restaurant, not knowing what was available in the area. Charlie Gitto's has a good reputation, and our visit did not disappoint. Before being seated at our table, we had drinks in the bar. It is not overly large for seating, but has a nice bar area. It was bustling on a Friday night. The menu was appetizing, and food was very, very good. We were not hungry when we left, and the price was within reason for the overall experience. We highly recommend Charlie Gitto's.

Charlie Gitto's offers the
Charlie Gitto's offers the only great Italian food for the West County area. The menu has improved as well as preparations. The salads do not reflect the St. Louis practice of "overdressing," resulting in an enjoyable start to the meal. The group with whom I was most recently dining ordered a variety of dishes, and everyone was pleased with the selections. In particular, I enjoyed the sea bass, cooked to perfection with a light lemon caper sauce,

This was a special occasion meal, and a little splurge for us. It was worth it! The ambience of the restaurant was elegant and upscale. Our server was wonderful, attentive and helpful. The seafood pasta was just incredible!

45th Wedding Anniversary
We had a very, very nice evening. The waiter was very professional and knew his menu. We were pleased with the food, the service and the ambience. We had visited the location on the hill on several occasions, but now prefer the "From The Hill". Thank you Charlie Gitto's again for a very nice evening with my wife.

Joy of Gitto's
Enjoyed our visit to Gitto's. The server, Katie, was great. I liked that she told us how everything there is home made. Thumbs up for calamari and rock shrimp appetizer, tomato soup, lobster ravioli, and rigatoni with sausage. The best looking dish of the night was my son's Veal Osso Bucco, like something off of Food Network! I wasn't thrilled with the Veal Saltimbocca. I'll try something else next time.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, very good service,
Great food, very good service, what can I say, just a really nice meal. They made us feel special with just a simple note on opentable about our anniversary. Definitely a special place.

Very nice experience. Waiter
Very nice experience. Waiter was great. My kids ordered off the menu and the chef accommodated them! It was my daughters birthday and they surprised her with cake!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time ever eating here and it was a great time. A little pricey but it is a fancier restaurant so can't complain for a special occasion dinner. I would recommend to others.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and excellent service.
Great food and excellent service. Best pasta dish I have had in a long time. Unfortunately we were seated right next to the server's station so it was rather noisy, with constant movement.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Charlie Gitto's From The Hill is a delicious breath of fresh food from the multitude of chain food restaurants in Chesterfield. As with all the Charlie Gitto family of restaurants, you can count on a fine dining experience or a quick casual meal in one place. I am never disappointed whenever I dine here and also enjoy their Happy Hours! A real gem worthy of a five star rating!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good meal at Gitto's.
Always a good meal at Gitto's. The menu is large with all of the traditional Italian entrees. It's loud, probably not ideal for a romantic dinner, but the place was packed, on a Tuesday night. That tells you something.
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our waiter gave us his honest opinion of different items that we asked him about. We went with his selections and were happy.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent as well as service.
Everyone in our group had a different choice and we all thought it was an excellent choice. It was a very relaxed atmosphere !
Two in our party said it was their new place to dine!

Great place any night of the week
Celebrated a birthday and anniversary. Pork shank outstanding as we're rigatoni with ground pork and the other dishes the four of us had. Good Italian wine list. Great service.

Charlie Gitto's in Chesterfield is really dependable for great drinks and delicious food! The Manhattan cocktail is top-notch and every dish we've eaten has been prepared just right! I want to work my way through the entire menu!

We had a party of 8 and everyone of us enjoyed our food very much. This was a special occasion for us and it turned out great.
Our waiter could not have been nicer and efficient. We would come back in a heart beat.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding, as always
With a good menu and tempting specials, Charlie Gitto's outperforms as usual. Solid bar and wine list, and very professional service. One negative - the carrot cake was very dry, but the other deserts at the table were very good.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service at Charlie Gittos was outstanding. I enjoyed the eggplant and it was perfectly prepared. I am looking forward to my next visit!
Thank you again.

Excellent food, waiter not so much
The food was absolutely phenominal! The dessert wasout of this world fantastic!! We even got there a little earlier than I reserved and they sat us within 5 minutes! The only thing I was little disappointed with was our main waiter. He was a bit unprofessional & casual and too quick to leave after he took our order (i.e., I was in the middle of asking for something and he completely ignored me and walks off!!). Honestly, he definitely was one of those waiters I would expect at a not-so-fancy restaurant, and would hope that if we ever go back there, we definitely get someone different than him...

Our server made the whole
Our server made the whole experience excellent. John was extremely professional and friendly, patient with one of my associates who needed a lot of help with the menu. He was very attentive and I will ask for him in the future. The other assoiciates who provided services - hostess, busperson - were also excellent.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We can't thank the staff (bartender, server, even the busser) for the pleasant evening we had. The entire staff were wonderful and made our evening that much better!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lot of $$ and not a lot of food!
I had the seafood ravioli which was good by the way but wish we could have gotten bread.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always good food and nice portion size. Would be nice to have oil with bread as an alternative to butter. Tables are close together so we were able to overhear conversations. Otherwise great place to go.
