Excellent service, food was really good but not fantastic. A bit expensive but overall was nice.
It was my girlfriend’s birthday and we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate. Everything was perfect.
Great food! Great service! So great to be back OUT!
The Waite staff was very good. The pace was relaxed and easy. The food was outstanding and the tiramisu so delish. I would come back again next time I’m in town.
Very nice restaurant for special occasions. The staff was very knowledgeable about what they were serving.
We celebrated my wife’s birthday with friends.
This was our first visit. We will DEFINITELY be back! My husband lived in Italy for over 3 years while his father was in the military. He said this food was the most authentic Italian he’s had since being back in the states (he’s been back for over 15 years now) and he’s VERY particular when it comes to Italian food. Everything was delicious! Our waiter, Tomás, made us feel right at home and was extremely attentive without being intrusive. The other wait staff and kitchen staff all chipped in to serve! Every single person was so polite and seemed to really care about your experience!
If you’re COVID conscious, they did a great job of keeping people distanced where they could and had plexiglass partitions where the tables were connected in a booth style. We made a reservation and were seated immediately as we arrived. Our experience from the front desk, to the table, and out the door was all around amazing! The front desk manager even noticed we’d finished our plates so he came over to clear the table. He even came with a scraper to sweep away the crumbs! Visit this place for any occasion. You will not regret it!
Everything was wonderful!! Great service and delicious food!! Highly recommended!!
Charlie Gitto's seems to be the place to go for a special occasion. We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Many other couples and families were gathering at Gitto's for a birthday or anniversary from what we could see. The food is absolutely the best in the city. The service is something special. All the servers treat you like you are a delight to serve. We definitely plan to visit again.
I highly recommend Charlie Gitto's On the Hill. It was very nice to be able to relax and enjoy a good meal. They work hard to keep their customers safe during COVID which is greatly appreciated. Food was delicious, service impeccable.
Had the bone in Filet special. It was incredibly tender with great flavor but was a very expensive entrée ($65). My wife had the Lasagna. She said it was wonderful. We also had toasted ravioli for an appetizer and they were extremely good.
We truly enjoyed our meal, drinks, and servers! Our servers, Suzanne and Ernest, were helpful, friendly, there when you needed but not intrusive. The hospitality was warm and the food was fabulous, well presented and has us thinking about our next return! Definitely order the calamari appetizer because it’s the best you’ve ever eaten! Portions are generous too so be prepared to truly enjoy your dining experience! Thank you, Charlie Gitto’s, for a memorable birthday celebration.
Great food and service!! We make this a stop when we are in St Louis.
Me and my roommates went here for a 20th birthday! The experience was awesome! So many kind people taking care of us!
great time out with the family, literally every food item was solid and worth ordering again. Covid distancing etc. they did a good job. Would love to come back when it's more lively. Also our server was great!
The staff is extremely helpful and friendly! The food is always incredible. I would recommend this place every time. Also with the option for gluten free pasta this is very helpful for those with Celiac! Lastly if you have never had their gelato you've got to try it!
Excellent food coupled with attentive and prompt service. Handled the Covid restrictions very professionally as no disruption was felt. Great job!!!!!
Food was amazing and service was great! Had a wonderful time.
When I want Italian and a nice experience, this is the only go to that's to be had. Love. It.
Was the first time going. I will definitely be going back! Such a wonderful experience.
I like the dim lighting and the cozy atmosphere. Our server was amazing, very nice, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was great too!
The meal was amazing. The special was the lobster and shrimp pasta. A huge thanks to Derrick who make every visit a special one.
Our family likes to have a holiday dinner out at different restaurants each year, and this was one of the best dinners we’ve enjoyed in the ten or so years we’ve been doing this. It really was a great evening out and the dinners were delicious!
Never been there and now have been twice in 8 days. Great place! Ready to go back!!
First time in St. Louis, so we had to go to Charlie Gitto’s - the best on The Hill. What’s the saying - “when in Rome”?
Old school in every way, from the suave and smooth maitre d’ to our waiter Anthony Sabatino, who treated us like royalty. At Anthony’s recommendation, we started with arancini - simply amazing. Then we had the Italian chopped salad which was even better. For the main course, we shared a monster sized off the menu serving of angel hair pasta with red sauce and chicken.
When back in STL we will always make this stop.
The food was nothing special. I don’t have an Italian bone in my body but make better pasta than what we had there. The server wasn’t very friendly either- kind of sarcastic. I wouldn’t go back. Guidos down the street is much better.
Wonderful! Excellent service, food, ambiance! Great meal before we headed to Garden Glow.
Charlie Gitto’s never disappoints!
Great night, wonderful food and service!
Good food and good place, but server acted like we needed to hurry and didn’t give us much attention.
Always consistent and a good meal. Wish they would bring back the veal chop,one of my favorites
By far, still the best Italian food on The Hill - loved every minute of our dinner!
Food was good but the place was packed and way to crowded considering the pandemic.
They were great...we had a large group and needed to split and they were very accommodating...Our server-John was great
This restaurant is outstanding. The only downside during COVID is the partitions which is not the fault of the owners. Makes it more cramped and detracts from the overall.experience
Charlie's has been our "go to" place for special occasions for 15 years. Never had a bad meal. We are always treated like the only ones in the place, even with a full house. Thank you for yet another memorable evening.
Charlie's is our absolute favorite place on the Hill. My ONLY critique was the building temp was warm. Not a big deal, just slightly uncomfortable. We WILL be back!
Always a great place to eat. Great service! We love going here for special occasions.
