Quality of food was outstanding. Overall bill was a bit high for two people having only one non-alcoholic drink and two single main courses without appetizers, salads or desserts. But the waiter was very attentive without being hovering, and water glasses were kept filled. We ran a half hour late for our reservation and there was no problem to keep our table waiting for us when we called.

Make a reservation. Our table was ready when we arrived. The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. We ordered the house salad and the lasagna. Both were delicious! They have an extensive wine selection and full bar.

This is a great restaurant on The Hill in St Louis. It was everything I expected from a great Italian spot. The food was excellent and service was outstanding. Our waiter was knowledgable, friendly and fun. We had pasta, chicken and beef dishes. All were perfect and presented beautifully. I'd recommend this place for dining on The Hill.

You can’t go wrong at Charlie Gitto’s. Our server, Tim, was incredible of course with the help of the assistant who never let our water glasses be empty and delivered fresh bread like clockwork. We dined on classic dishes as well as specials and topped the night with a lovely light dessert. It was a wonderful evening.

Top notch experience!
We were concerned that service may not be as good as normal during the pandemic and we absolutely wrong. The restaurant was quite busy though each employee we encountered gave us all the attention needed. Derek, Abby, Quinn and Emma were all outstanding. Charlie Gitto’s has great food and a staff that appreciates their customers.

By far the best Italian food I’ve had. Ambiance was awesome and the service was fantastic. Other than some incredibly annoying and rude guests behind my wife and I (obviously not the restaurant’s fault) the experience was a amazing. Highly recommend stopping in here if you’re looking for quality Italian food on the Hill.

Great experience, food was fantastic and plentiful. the side salad or garden salad was very good but not worth $10, more like $5. Everyone very respectful. Drink glasses always about half full. Daniel was very good in bringing out the food and following up with our meal. The assistant to Daniel was awesome, great conversationalist. Owner was very nice and check in on us 3 times to make sure our service and meal was great.

Dinner was excellent as was the service. Only problem I experienced was that it was extremely dark and I was with a visually impaired friend making it difficult for her. I realize this is for ambience but even I had to use my phone to read the menu for us. Maybe a happy medium as this is an excellent restaurant for all ages.

Overpriced for what you get. The main course is $30-40 and if you want anything else with it you have to pay extra.

We love Gitto’s on the Hill. We come every year when we visit St Louis and it never disappoints. Well- trained, friendly waiters deliver great food. Fresh tomato salad with regionally ripened tomatoes are a treat.
