Wonderful old school Italian neighborhood restaurant. Classic ambiance, fantastic service and great menu and wine list. Small, but good bar. Highly recommend.
Love, love, love this place! Derek and the staff along with the ambiance make each visit memorable.
Food is amazing and the waiter Thomas is outstanding!!
Wonderful meal! Veal Marsala and Chicken Spedini and pasta primavera!!! Wonderful salad! We loved this place, however very very noisy!! Don’t be looking for romantic quiet dinner here!!
Great food/service. Had to wait a bit for our table but the wait at the bar was very enjoyable.
Food was great, as always. Was really disappointed to see they allowed people to be seated in jeans and athletic shorts. I chose this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion with friends from out of town. They packed heels and business casual attire for a special evening out. It was much less special to find ourselves seated next to a teenager in his soccer gear. Meanwhile, in the other room, a large group was dressed for prom sitting next to folks in jeans. For a pricey restaurant, the dress code really should be enforced to maintain the ambience of a classy restaurant. Additionally, the plastic coated menus really cheapen the experience. Not sure I will be bringing my guests back in the future.
We were out with friends. The food was excellent and the service was extraordinary
Perennially great Italian restaurant in The Hill. Service and wine list were very good. Was very busy but uncomfortably loud (prom).
Great experience. Our waiter, Joe, was just great!
The Sicilian steak was fantastic and the cannoli are some of the best that I have tried. This place is always fantastic and never disappoints.
Incredible food, service and ambiance ❤️ Been traveling thru St. Louis for 4 months now....a must dinner...eggplant Parmesan and gnocchi are amazing
We were looking for Italian restaurant and found this gem online. Amazing food, ambience, service! Highly recommend!
Everything about our visit to Charlie Gitto's on The Hill was great !! The food and wine was delicious , Our server was very helpful & professional .The host was entertaining also !! Our entire experience was awesome ! We will be talking about it for some time to come and will definitely recommend to others !!
Hands down favorite restaurant!
Great service, atmosphere and some of the best food we have had. Our waiter, Quinn went above and beyond with our service. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again!
For a great Italian meal in the heart of The Hill, this is the place. Tim was our waiter and he makes your meal an experience. Appetizers, salads, and meal were all great. This is a place that should be on everyone's Regular place to go.
My only complaint is that for $20+ I would have liked more than 5 ravioli. Everything else (and the ravioli themself) were outstanding!
Excellent in every way! Service, ambiance, drinks and food were impeccable. Hope to return soon
We were visiting from out of town & this place was suggested by several locals. We were not disappointed! Delicious food & great service!
My husband is here on business and I am in town visiting, Charlie Gitto’s came highly recommended for Italian food and we were not disappointed. The portions are large and fulfilling , service was impeccable, and it was an overall excellent experience. If I ever return to St Louis I will be sure to dine here again!
Great food! Great service!
Definitely one of the best restaurants in St. Louis. Well run, with professional service and top quality Italian dishes. They have some of the best meatballs I've ever tasted. Overall a superb experience.
Charlie Gitto's is our favorite on the HIll! Ask for Tim to be your server, he is the best. We have tried so many things on the menu, all are outstanding. This our go to place when we are in STL.
Our meal was amazing! Lobster bisque was to die for and tiramisu was the perfect dessert to end a fabulous meal. We had a great 19th Anniversary!
Was great as always. Something for everyone on the menu.
Complimentary valet parking began our dining experience followed by a warm greeting from Derek and immediate seating by Abbi. Quinn, our server was attentive and well versed on the menu as well as the evening specials. He was most helpful in selecting our cocktails as well as our entrees. The courses were timed to perfection and well worth the wait. Gittos never disappoints and proves to be a dining experience to share and repeat. Looking forward to our next visit in the very near future.
Charlie Girth’s on The Hill was a great St. Louis experience. The food was amazing and service was great. Highly recommended for authentic Italian cuisine. Best cannoli ever.
Our large group was quickly seated right on time, at a largeRound table which was perfect so that we could all see and talk to each other.
Our food was excellent and the service was first rate, but this was no surprise as we have been to Charlie Gitto’s many times and have never been disappointed. We look forward to coming back again soon!
My steak was outstanding and the creamed spinach was delish! The service was excellent- maybe a bit too attentive. The creme brule was perfect.
My wife ordered scallops and did not like them - they took them off our order. The maître d’ was a tad condescending as he suggested that she might not have known what to expect. The fact that she found the scallops to be rubbery and slimy did not seem to sway him. In the future I will follow my mother’s wisdom- never order seafood except in a seafood restaurant and never order the ‘special.’
Awesome food, service and ambiance. Went with my family after a day full of excursions and initially felt we’d be under-dressed but no one said anything other than asking us to remove our hats. Once the service and food started, the question of clothing became a distant memory. The bread, appetizer, salads, soups and entrees were all just delicious.
My Mom and I went to Charlie Gitto's during our weekend stay in St. Louis. It was our first time eating on the Hill. The service was wonderful. Our waiter was very helpful with our wine selection. The food was very good. We will definitely go back again.
Great service. Great Italian food. Wonderful experience.
Consistently delicious. And we will I really like the online reservations. Great service.
The food was out of this world! Toasted ravioli, beet salad, Manicotti, cannelloni, spinach side dish were all amazing. Our server Tim was great! Friendly and helpful. We are from out of town, but would definitely come back.
Great service & dinner was wonderful 😊
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the entire Mid-West. I love EVERYTHING about Charlie Gitto's on the Hill. Katie, Todd, and Joe are excellent employees. If your are in St. Louis, this is a must. Only a 10 minute or less Uber or Cab ride from downtown. Try it. Highly recommended.
Easter brunch was delicious! Service and the food were great!
Wonderful Easter brunch with the family!
Awesome food and excellent service. Our waiter Quinn did a fantastic job!
Wonderful food and service. Throwback to nice Italian restaurants of the past.
We have been to several other well known restaurants on the Hill in recent months, primarily because Gitto's was always very busy and we couldn't get a table on short notice. We finally made a reservation and had dinner on a Saturday night. Now I remember why Charlie Gitto's is always busy. The ambiance is very classy, the food is gourmet authentic Italian, and the service is the best on the Hill. Can't wait to return. It was by far the finest dining experience I have had on the Hill, or any other place in St. Louis.
