I though the ravioli egg plate was awesome!! The gnotto fritto was very salty. The trout was ok. But the potatoes with the trout was excellent. The lamb chops where good. Cheesecake was generic. And the nuts in them did not taste good.

My fiancé and I had an amazing night celebrating her birthday. Our waiter Jean and the amazing food will make Acero one of our favorites. The Gnocco Fritto was like nothing I’ve ever had before. We could make a meal out of several orders of just those alone. The beef tenderloin was perfectly prepared to melt in your mouth. 100% recommend.

Just a gem. We go often and are never disappointed. Please go once just for a glass of wine and their charcuterie board. They will explain the board to you: the country of origin and flavors etc. Even the bread and olive oil is exceptional! We are particularly fond of their pastas, but their 4 course tasting for 50$ is an amazing value. A prize for St. Louis. We could go every week and still be delighted. Thank you Acero!

The food is always fantastic, the service is top-notch, but we were so disappointed to be charged a $50 corkage fee! Outrageous
We spent as much to enjoy our wine as we did on our 4 course dinners. Management was made aware of our displeasure but did not offer to waive 1 of the cork fees. Definitely disappointed - we are regular diners at Acero.

So nice to be back inside our favorite northern Italian restaurant. Adam our server was very attentive and kind. He is very familiar with the wine list and helped us select a very nice pinot noir from Aosta to enjoy with our meals.

Great place. They have a tasting menu for $50 that is fabulous. Every course was perfection on a plate. Everything was incredible from start to finish. Great service and charming relaxed atmosphere. Reservation is recommended. Oh, and excellent cocktail selection. My favorite is the Sparkling Lemoncello!

My Husband and I love this place. It is our go to date night out! We came here last year for Valentine's Day and we couldn't wait to come back. Their 5 course tasting meal is a great great value at $75.00 a person, you won't leave hungry. The service is always enjoyable and the owner is always so nice. Not to mention the food is AMAZING, always hitting the spot. We will be back there ASAP!!

Food - incredible, service - amazing, safety - impeccable.. I love this place and we had the most amazing experience tonight. I was beyond impressed with their partitions between tables for safety and keeping at a minimum capacity. $50 for 4 beyond decently sized portions of well crafted courses. Told them it was my friends bday tomorrow and they even provided a candle with dessert.

Acero’s dining is more than friends’ getting together or special occasions it is like coming home to a special family with outstanding food. The staff warms your heart and the food warms your soul. Adam, Harris and the rest of the team make everyone feel special.

The food is outstanding with flavors that expand your food soul. I always want to take pictures of the presentation of food, though it is so appealing we just dive in.

Thanks Adam, Harris and the rest of the team!
