Recommender by a local colleague the experience and food was good; I had marsala and mushroom filet mignon. However side of asparagus didn't go with entree. And tiramisu was underwhelming.
Service was terrible. We did not see our waiter after we ordered and received drinks for at least 20 minutes when we finally ordered our food. Then we did not see him at all until we asked for the check. I ordered dessert to go and never received it. I would recommend this restaurant to others with the hope that the service would be better.
Best pasta in town. this nights special pasta, with lobster and a great olive oil based sauce was fantastic. Would like to see it on the menu regularly.
We had a birthday celebration. 6 of us. The food was fabulous, but the tables were jammed too closely together and it was so loud we couldn't talk to each other.
My wife and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. Charlie Gitto's took excellent care of us at dinner. They had a customized dessert just for us. The food was also excellent. We were very pleased.
I have had several good and very good meals at Gitto's through the years. The meal I had the other night was exemplary in every possible way. The Mediterranean salad, the Filet and Snapper entries my wife and I had, the creamed spinach and the side pasta were all so tasty I didn't want the dinner to end. Service was excellent. Perfect night out. Very much in rarified air. Thank you Gitto's.
Excellent atmosphere service and food, look forward to our next visit
Great service and great food! We love coming back when we’re in St. Louis!
I've eaten here six or seven times. Seems to have gone downhill over the years. Had lunch yesterday with a colleague. Service was a little better than mediocre. $12 salad was not the "pretty good size" the server described. If I didn't have bread I'd have left very hungry. Could have gone without listening to the owner swear up a storm meeting with his staff two tables over. Friend said the roast beef sandwich was really good.
We had an excellent meal along with great service. Our waiter Brett gave us a thorough explanation of each special meal that was offered that evening. He also brought a special birthday dessert to my wife. We look forward to coming back to Charlie Gitto's for many future dinners and celebrations.
The food and atmosphere was great. The service was not good. We had to ask 3 times to get more bread. We had a party of 6 and we had to wait over an hour for our food and we were seated at 6:00 and the dining room wasn’t filled yet.
Excellent food and superb service! We had a party of six for a birthday celebration and we all agreed it was a perfect lunch. We meet monthly and agreed we come back here soon!!! Topped off the lunch wIth a delicious piece of birthday cake big enough for all of us to get a few bites!
Everything was amazing! The food was phenomenal, the service top notch! Cannot wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!
Close to home but still feels like you're dining in The Hill. Big portions and amazing food! Plenty to share
Celebrated our 30th Anniversary! CG made it VERY special 😊
My husband and I visited Charlie Gitto's for a nice Saturday evening dinner out and we weren't disappointed. Our server was able to help us pick a bottle of wine to enjoy, was knowledgeable about the specials for the evening, and was very attentive. Our food was all delicious from start to finish.
Brett was our server this evening and he was very good. Hope to have him as a server next time.
Food was good but reasonably expensive. Noise level was high. Waitress was not too good.
It was my birthday and they gave me a beautiful complimentary cake
Our dinner was excellent, except for the service. Our server was energetic, but needs more training. He consistently reached over one of us to server someone else. At the adjacent table of 10, he passed desert from one end of the table for the patrons to pass down the table, like it was "home-style". At the end of our meal, we asked for refills of coffee and he seemed to forget to do this. I asked a second time and we were finally served. Again, more training is needed.
Good food and great service. We've been there several times and we're never disappointed.
Fantastic place to have a great meal and a few drinks. I will be back.
We were celebrating a birthday and chose Charlie Gitto’s for our special occasion. Although we had reservations, we still had to wait for an extra 25 minutes to be seated. So, that was not the best start to the visit. We totally understand a few minute (10-15) wait. When we finally were seated, it took quite some time for our order to be taken. We each ordered a salad, one caesar and a blue cheese wedge. The wedge was ordered with blue cheese dressing instead of the dressing typically served. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend it that way. It was more than I could eat. The Caesar salad was good as well. I ordered the Chicken Spedini and my spouse ordered Chicken Marsala. Both dinners were wonderful! Charlie Gitto’s is typically an excellent place to get an amazing Italian meal. My spouse was offered a piece of cake for the birthday celebration which was a nice touch. Then upon paying the bill, the charges to our card were wrong. I guess our server didn’t look it over and just ran the wrong numbers. It was corrected before we left after we brought it to her attention but this did add to a poor experience. Being truthful though, it is very sad when the service doesn’t match up. Dining is a total experience and the overall experience was less than par. We will definitely try again. The food is very very good. Hopefully the experience will match the next time.
We frequent Gitto’s and the food is great. The disappointment is the service. They are very quick to say something can’t be done and when pressed to ask the kitchen we are always told there was no problem. However, the waiters make it a point to let us know that this was an exception that they had to negotiate for us and an inconvenience that is not normally done which I find hard to believe.
The servers may be too busy flipping the tables to truly understand what a good customer experience means.
Average food and poor service it seems unless they know you (I’m from out of town). I did get to hear how Charlie was in Asia for 3 weeks and a pregnant girl complain a lot.
Live and learn.....
I can’t believe I haven’t been here sooner. Fabulous! I’ve already recommended it!
I had asked for a specific dessert for the birthday celebration and it was ignored.
Always a treat to have dinner at Gitto's. The food is excellent, filling and definitely a great value as we always have food to take home.
Excellent food and service, we had two birthdays, one sweet 16, staff made it a memorable and fantastic experience.
Girls night birthday celebration
My Lasagna was excellent and everyone else raves about their meals.
All around excellent restaurant. Definitely recommend.
Always a great experience. For some reason this visit the noise level was WAY up and it was hard to hear just across the table.
The service was IMPECCABLE!
The food isn’t bad. The location is good and there is a lot of parking. The service was mediocre - we had to ask for silverware, water, etc.
The food and service were great.
Absolutely delicious, every bit of it. The appetizer, the bread, and the meal...amazing. Not cheap, but worth every penny!
Great food, great service, fun atmosphere. Overall a good classy place to get a affordable meal with the vibes of going to a very expensive restaurant. Food was amazing!!
Service was excellent, food was amazing.
Excellent food and service at Charlie Gitto's!
However, they really could improve their ambiance. Their decor needs an update because, frankly, it just looks old and tired. If the restaurant would overhaul their tired inside look, its appeal would correspondingly go up. I have talked to other people who say that they would go there, but it lacks an attractive ambiance and is way too noisy. Fixing the inside (outside is classic and looks great!) would attract more people. I hope Charlie Gitto's will consider this.
Great food and great service! Went there for a birthday dinner and had a great time. Our waiter was very knowledgeable!
