A friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. Service was prompt, courteous and professional but friendly. We each had one of the specials, Chilean Sea Bass and Veal short ribs; both were excellent. We enjoyed our birthday celebration!

Food is excellent. Veal lemonata, gnocchi and spaghetti and meatballs were very good.

Server was a bit overly talkative., to the point of being annoying.

We were accommodated in the private room for a family 12 year old birthday party. The best thing was the menu which had something for everyone. Fabulous tastes.

A terrific spot with loads of history in a wonderful small Italian neighborhood. Take time to visit local shops, bakeries and cheese shops.

The service is, in a word, exceptional. Timothy was terrific. We watched him serve multiple tables without missing a beat and providing attentive detail to each party.

Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill is one of the best restaurants in the city! Orion is hands down one of the best servers in the industry. He knows his craft and consistently delivers on the customer experience every time. He never disappoints on his wine and dessert recommendations as well.

Our server Anthony was so great that my mom hugged him at the end of our meal. We stopped by after Glow Lights at Botanical Garden. Service was kind, attentive, and quick. Food was great. Dave as usual added efficiency but also character to our entry. We will all be sad to see him retire this year.

In my opinion this is the best Italian food that I have ever had. This was our second time eating here and it was ever bit as good as the first. We will definitely be back when we are in St. Louis.

The lasagna was really incredible. Excellent red sauce. They have a huge wine list. The house made cake they offer for birthdays/special events is a nice offering but was short on flavor. The borghese was average at best- the prosciutto was super chewy and the overall dish not as full of flavor as expected. It’s a nice romantic setting but I’ve had better Italian for a lower price point. I suppose the ambiance is what you pay for though.

The food was amazing as usual. I highly recommend the sea bass and the eggplant napoleon. But what we think really sets this restaurant apart is the amazing service. When you go-expect to be pampered!!

It had been a few years since dining at Charlie Gitto’s but everything was as wonderful as I remembered. From the minute we walked in the door and were greeted to paying our check - it couldn’t have been better! Not only was the food fabulous, the staff made us feel special and appreciated. Can’t wait to go back!

We changed our reservation twice and they were very accommodating both times. Then, they kept the kitchen open a little later because we were late. My date isn’t proficient in English and the waiter bent over backwards to make sure she got exactly what she wanted. She has eaten in restaurants all over the world and her exact words were, “Who would have thought that the best meal I’ve ever had was here in St. Louis!”
