Charlie Gitto's from the Hill - Chesterfield
Dinner: Monday - Thursday: 4:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday & Saturday : 4:00pm - 11:00pm, Sunday 4:00pm - 9:00pm
The food was good. Very salty and average Italian cuisine. The staff seemed very robotic and rushed. We were having a dinner meeting which unfortunately this restaurant does not provide a good location for meetings in which discussions are necessary. The lifhting was limited and the noise level and acoustics were awful. Even without a meeting it would be loud. Similar to a friday nught sports bar atmosphere. We expected a little more high level atmosphere and service.
Excellent food! Excellent service! Great location! Nice atmosphere!
Outstanding meal, great service. The calamari was perfect, and a really good value as well.
Have eaten at this establishment several times both for lunch and dinner. Meals are consistently good and priced reasonably.
I took my sister to Charlie Gitto's from the Hill - Chesterfield for her birthday. We had a lovely evening together. The service was great, the food delicious and we both enjoyed the slice of birthday cake. I would definitely recommend this very classy restaurant.
The traditional Italian favorites were well-prepared and flavorful. Waitstaff was attentive and well-informed. Desserts were very satisfying. We used to live in St.Louis and miss the good Italian restaurant offerings available. Very convenient location to avoid hassles of driving downtown. Cozy on a rainy night.
We have been to Gitto’s a number of times, and always had a great meal. Their gelato is the best!
A great place to dine. Food is excellent. Service is wonderful. Nice atmosphere.
The food was phenomenal--we had a Caesar salad, lobster ravioli, and Seafood Pasta Suzanne. We also ordered wine and were able to sample before we decided on a bottle. We recieved a free piece of cannoli cake because we were there for our anniversary. Excellent service. The only problem was that it was a bit noisy and crowded.
Entrees are very expensive. They do not come with a side, and sitting on a plate by themselves looks very cheap on the restaurant's part. An Italian restaurant could easily add a small side of pasta. Customers would feel a bit better at spending $35+ and the presentation would be much more appetizing.
We had extremely slow service throughout the night. It took our server 30 min to come back to our table to take our food order after bringing our drinks. We never had our water refilled and since I was only drinking water that was disappointing. My spaghetti was drowning in sauce and my eggplant parmigiana was bland. Another guest’s carrots were cold and hard. In the middle of the meal, one of guests at our table was asked to permanently move so they could scoot a table closer to our table. The entire evening it appeared amateurs were running the restaurant. This is so disappointing since it has always been one of our favorite restaurants.
Great waiter. We all enjoyed our meals. Serving sizes very ample.
Charlie Gitto’s is always the first stop when we come to town. This time it was pretty lackluster. Unusual for them. Bummer for us.
Celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. Great service and food, as always. Charlie Gitto’s is one of our favorite dinner spots!
Food good, service excellent.
Celebrated a birthday with family members. Food was great and our server was excellent.
Date night after a rough week for her and a long week for me. Italian was on our minds, and as I'd visited Charlie Gitto's Downtown many, many times in the past, I decided to check out the Chesterfield location on this evening. We were seated promptly, and within minutes had water as well as the overwhelming drink menu presented to us. The toasted ravioli (appetizer) did not disappoint, nor did my baked gnocchi or her baked spaghetti. The Italian coconut cream cake? Superb. Is it a bit pricey? Sure, but if you want to have a date night a bit on the fancier side (without having to wear a coat and tie), you can't go wrong with this restaurant.
I eat here often and find the food consistent as is the service. I only wish they had a better win list.
Very disappointed in the service and delivery of food. The waiter got one of the orders completely wrong (brought chicken not veal) but we had not time to change because we were going to an event. Also, for the price of the chicken dish, it should include a full side, not just a "garnish." $22 is a lot to spend on 6 oz of chicken and one tiny potato and carrot. We were told by the manager it was the owner's choice to serve as such and customers are expected to purchase side dish. Really?!?!?!
Service was very good. Our meal was very enjoyable.
Sat without a server for about ten minutes. But the food was good.
Food was excellent. Waiter did an outstanding job. Spaced the meal and did not feel rushed. Everyone was friendly. We celebrated 2 birthdays and cake was wonderful. Nice job!!!
Food and service was good, but not as good as we expected given people’s comments. Calamari appetizer was excellent and highly recommended. We had a seafood risotto and seafood pasta as main course which were good (wife’s risotto was over spiced); we both had mussels that were not open, so those could not be eaten. Service was good but not very personable. The service assistant was really attention everyone, making sure water was full, etc.
Service was wonderful. Two of us ordered steaks medium, came our rare. Server had to have manager approve they were undercooked. Wife’s chicken spiedini was a little undercooked but figured we better not say anything and it lacked any real flavor. Side pastas were excellent. Ordered a Manhattan which was first shaken and not made with the proper ratio, tasted like vermouth with some bitters. Our Server was great but overall disappointed with food quality compared to the location on the Hill.
Charlie Gittos is our “go-to” for an excellent meal and welcoming environment! A trusted favorite...
Very nice restaurant, enjoyed the food very much. Service was great too.
I selected Gitto's for lunch in celebration of a friend's birthday . Every aspect of the experience felt "special". Thank you, for the warm reception , the tasty food, outstanding service and, yes, the individual sized surprise birthday cake--- which was beautifully rendered ---was a courtesy from you .....which was more than appreciated! What a nice touch!
From Omaha , we liked it so well we Are coming back tonight
Wonderful place!! Everything we had was awesome. The bread, Italian salad, pasta special, chicken pasta, tiramisu and Reese’s gelato. Plus the sangria!! Highly recommend!!
Delicious food, staff was very attentive. So many menu options it was difficult to decide what to order. A future visit will certainly be warranted.
Excellent all around. Great staff and food.
I thought the food was great! Service was a little slow but not enough to spoil the evening. There three of us we had different dishes...steak, pasta and scallops....everyone was very please with the preparation and presentation. Definitely going back
Great experience. Had not been there in a long time because of the noise level. Decided to try again with some friends who used to live in St. Louis. Seemed so much better this time.
The food and service was great! Would highly recommend this restaurant !!
This restaurant has great food but is just as much about the atmosphere. We go often for special occasions which they always recognize and celebrate with us.
Good but not extra ordinary
Food was the best party - that’s why we were there.
Very good ambiance and excellent service. Wine not served in stem glasses not proper. Lobster bisque excellent, chicken nunzio and veal marsala only ok, veal parmesan very good. Desserts excellent. A little disappointed with the value, expected better.
Delicious food, knowledgeable staff, inviting ambiance and an extensive wine list!
Service and food was amazing but it was so cold!!! AC was blowing right on our table it was miserable
