We go to Acero every year for a date night/anniversary dinner. After every year we cannot wait to come back! Even with the restrictions in place due to Covid we still had an amazing experience that didn’t feel restricted at all. The wine and food were as good as always and the service is what makes is extra special.

Amazing Italian food - love the four course tasting menu. Every single dish was great. Wine is on the pricey side.

If you want to sit on the patio, call them. We were seated indoors with our opentable reservation, and they were not able to accommodate us on the patio.

Food was excellent. We were on the outside patio and very well spaced tables. Only real complaint is the slow service, but all 5 entrees were timed well to be served hot at the same time. Weather was nice so very pleasant but there was unexpected “chirping” noise from the street light crossing signal.
If you eat outside recommend you ask for a table closer to the restaurant than the sidewalk.

Our first time to Acero, will DEFINITELY it be our last! Amazing atmosphere, quiet, comfortable...service was impeccable and don’t get me started on the food...the 4 course tasting menu was the way to go! The Gnocco Fritto is my new favorite food! All I can say is wow! And am ready to book my next reservation!

We love Acero. The service is always outstanding with a professional, and kind wait staff. The food is always excellent. STL has a lot of Italian food, but I think this is the best. I highly recommend the 4-course menu. It’s a great way to enjoy a variety of well-prepared food.

It was our first time dining at the restaurant. The four course special was a fantastic way to try lots of different things. The food was excellent. Our server, Zurn, could not have been more helpful or efficient. We will definitely return soon. I have already recommended the restaurant to several friends and family members.

Always impressed with Acero’s good and ambience. After living in Rome for almost a year, this place is as close as we could find to have the same feel as a local Roman restaurant. Definitely not “St Louis” Italian. This is real Italian food. The servers are all wonderful and we typically just go with their suggestions which also makes us feel like we are at our favorite restaurants in Italy.

We love Acero and never miss an opportunity to dine there whenever we are in STL. It is a special occasion, everyday dining or date night place- honestly, we would eat there any time! The Italian food is excellent and rivals the best places in Los Angeles. Even more importantly, the service is spectacular.

Never disappointed dining at Acero. Food was amazing, service was great, ambiance was relaxing, even in today's COVID environment. Would recommend to anyone. Wait until you get the bread to start your meal. So good. Order the Raviolo. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy...
