Absolutely fabulous evening at Acero! Gosh, have we missed this place. And it was even better that we remembered. We did the tasting menu, which gave us the opportunity to delight in so many different and wonderful dishes. And the assistance in choosing wine was spot on! Hurray to be able to get back to Acero!!!

Acero has made dining out while still in a pandemic a very safe feeling experience. Once past dealing with that we found the dining experience to be as memorable as ever. Their pastas are excellent. We almost always do the tasting menu because you just can’t go wrong with a 4-course meal! Kudos!

We have not been to Acero in three or four years. We love the "new" menu and food. Everything we had was good and very interesting. We will go back. The back room was much quieter than the front. so if you want to hear, I would suggest the back rather than the new brick walls in the front.

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!
