The food was some of the best I've had in St. Louis and certainly the best Italian. Literally everything else, from booking the reservation, on-time seating, safe distancing, great service, price was all outstanding. Will definitely go back. Special shout out to our server, JC!

Adam and Harris always make everyday dinners special and those that are special more so. The care for the customers and the staff is evident in all that they are doing in this COVID filled world. I would recommend them to anyone that wants great food full of unique tastes, as well as, comfort tastes. No one to us does it better or makes you feel like family than the group at Acero’s.

We love the food at Acero! The service is always great and they are very accommodating. We had a party of four just behind us that were quite animated, but it is usually a very calm, quiet environment. My mother-in-law said it was the best meal she'd ever had and she's 87!

Exciting menu with superior expertise. The Egg Raviolo ( a single, large raviolo appetizer, with a whole egg inside and topped with a great sauce and mascarpone cheese) was out of this world.

This was the first time we have been back to Acero since mid March when Covid hit. We felt very comfortable eating indoors and they are taking every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of their customers and staff. The food and service were better than ever!

My husband and I went for our anniversary, both of us had pasta (egg raviolo and tag lulling with mushrooms) they’re so good! I’m giving 4 stars because they didn’t have the cured meats and cheese because the guy that cuts them wasn’t there that day. We enjoyed our meal and we do recommend it.

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.
