Father’s Day dinner. Food wise everything was very good especially the fresh pasta dishes of beef ravioli and pasta Suzanne. Service was good and our reservation was later so service was quite rushed. You could tell our waiter was anxious for us too leave. Frustrating but we’ll be back!

A truly authentic Italian dining experience. And their red sauce is the best I've ever had in a restaurant - tastes just like my mother's.

We came to this restaurant some years ago and have remembered it as the best Italian restaurant ever. We stayed downtown, but made the trip to "the Hill" specifically to eat here. We were disappointed this time as our food was rather ordinary, but still expensive. Our waiter was glib and rather loud with his various tables. We will find other places whenever we return to St. Louis.

Best meal we've had in awhile! We both intended to get pasta but ordered seafood specials instead. Service was excellent and it wasn't overly crowded on a Monday night. More expensive than most places we frequent but worth it. Good wine list.

The food was good but the service wasn’t great. Not like it had been in the past. I guess I was expecting great service and got average. Will definitely go again, probably just an off night for the server

We had never been to this venue before, but we had heard a lot of great things about it. We had reservations and were seated immediately. We were celebrating our 2nd anniversary. It was perfect. Very romantic setting. We don't drink, but they had plenty of options. I ordered the manicotti and he ordered a seafood dish. It was all so good. The noodles practically melted in your mouth. Our waited even brought us free dessert. It was a great environment, the service was great, everything about this place was great. We will definitely be back in the future.

The food was absolutely wonderful as was the service. However, the customers that we’re seated next to us were absolutely the rudest people. I am 23 and from Tennessee so I’m aware it may not look like I have money but I very much do. But these people took the time to turn their entire bodies to look at us like we don’t belong and proceeded to talk about how we don’t belong there. And I assure you, that’s enough to make me not want to return there.

The hostess was extremely friendly and helpful! Our waitress was very friendly and we received excellent service from her and the staff. The food was superb!! Hope to go again soon. It is a bit dark in the main dining room. After I saw the other rooms and patio I wish we could have eaten in there. Other than that, a perfect evening.

Went here for my 3 year anniversary and had the most special night. Every single employee was great, but Joe really stood out. He was the best!! He was so friendly and really knew the menu. His attention to detail is impeccable. If you go, ask for Joe! Food was amazing and so full of flavor. Highly recommend!!

Gittos has quickly become our monthly dining requirement. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic and the menu offers something for all palettes. The halibut special was by far my favorite dish to date. Quinn suggested I start off with the Caprese Salad which was magnificent with the Heirloom Tomatoes also perfect to split! Gittos is a hidden gem we love to share with some of our younger friends who are amazed by the cuisine, service and atmosphere.
Quinn is always our requested server who never disappoints to provide detailed information regarding the menu options as well as the wine pairing.
Derek and Abbi offer a warm greeting and somehow manage to make us feel very special upon each visit.
Thank you Gittos On The Hill for yet another outstanding visit!

We had an amazing evening at Charlie Gittos. Three of us drove from Springfield, MO to meet family who live in St. Louis. We were seated right at our reservation time and were treated to amazing food and exceptional service from Timothy. First visit for all of us but definitely not our last! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

My husband and I had a wonderful time dining at Charlie Gitto’s on the Hill. We went there on a special date night before attending a show at Fox Theatre. The food was delicious- one of the best meals I have had! I felt like I was back in Italy because the food was truly Italian. Ambiance was romantic- but still accommodating for families and groups of friends. The servers were very knowledgeable and had great menu suggestions. We will definitely be back!

This was my first time to Charlie Gitto's after living in St. Louis for 10 years. Don't know why it took me so long. We sat in the outdoor patio area which was great. The food was really good Italian (I should know since I am one). Our waiter was very attentive and Derek, the host, came by to say hello and chat. Great evening all around. We'll be back.

We have dined at Charlie's two other times that were outstanding. This trip was even better since one in our party is very knowledgeable about wines. Our waiter was the wine buyer for Charlie's. He was terrific! Our food was excellent and the ambiance was perfect! Another in our party was celebrating a birthday so it made the superb meal even more special. We try to get to Charlie's on the Hill every time we have a weekend in St. Louis.
