Wonderful old school Italian neighborhood restaurant. Classic ambiance, fantastic service and great menu and wine list. Small, but good bar. Highly recommend.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
