LoRusso's Cucina on The Hill
LoRusso's Cucina has some great appetizers. You can try the toasted beef ravioli, meatballs, fried spinach and the wild mushroom trio. Some of the other options on the menu include the fettuccine pollo asiago, capellini fantasia, tortellini, short rib ragu and the eggplant lasagna. Grilled options at LoRusso's Cucina include filet gorgonzola, the cowboy rib eye and the veal parmesan.
Excellent food and service.
The food is always excellent and they take great care of you.
Always an outstanding meal. Never disappointed with anything. Tuna carpaccio is wonderful as are the arancini. Every entree was tasty, delicious and great.
Nice server with great food and attention to detail. We love LoRusso's, you will too.
It would have been a perfect experience, except, when the hostess walked us to our table, it seemed that the table she wanted us to have hadn't been cleaned yet. We stood at another table that was ready for several minutes while she walked back and forth looking exasperated. She finally sat us at that table. Our server was delightful, food was wonderful, very reasonable. Cocktails were delicious. We will be back!
I brought my sisters and our spouses for the first time. Great Meal. It will be my Sister from KC's new go to place for sure when visiting St Louis.
One of the top dining experiences in St Louis. Chef Rich LoRusso is one of the best of St Louis. Food is always incredibly delicious and the service is second to none.
This was the second time we have had great service and below average food. The chicken special came out cold, I sent it back, and it came out only lukewarm. The chicken was just barely cooked--and 95% was left on my plate when we were done. They did offer dessert, or another dish, by that time my husband had finished eating, so I declined. They charged us for my meal--unacceptable. Sad, as we had really enjoyed LoRusso's in the past--but there are many other Italian restaurants in the area--we most likely will not be back for quite a while.
great food at good fair prices as well as wonderful service
My new favorite haunt; classic Italian but not afraid to try new ideas.

Everything was good. No complaints. I would go back.
Not your run-of-the-mill Italian. It's nice that they add twists to dishes. Love the mushroom appetizer with smoked gouda crostini. The veal Milanese was perfect topped with mushrooms and garlic butter. Service was very good (Andrew) even though it was a very busy night. Overall: excellent!
The rat pack review was there and they were amazing! Food and service were amazing! Loved it
We dine here often but L❤️VE that they do special nights, this one with a "rat pack" entertainment group....makes going out to dinner so much more!! The food, from apps & salad to main courses ( we're always so stuffed we never have room for dessert🙁) Is always good...no matter your choice!
Our family has been going to Lo Russo’s for 30 years and the food and family atmosphere has never changed. Delicious food and friendly staff and family.
Excellent food and service, as usual. The atmosphere is very nice with plenty of room in between tables. Wait staff is attentive w/o hovering. Truly enjoyed our dinner outing.
I had written on open table we came to LoRusso for a birthday. The hostess said She noticed we there to celebrate a birthday. Our waiter never said anything. My husband order veal Milanese. He said there was more breading than veal. Kind of disappointing. Everyone else enjoyed their meal.
We had flash fried spinach, veal piccata and creme brûlée...all excellent!
Dine at LoRusso's 5-6 times per year and always have great food. Been coming ever since they opened.
We’ve been here many times and we’ll be back. This was not our best meal. Usually LOVE flash fried spinach but it arrived not as crispy as usual and almost soggy in middle. Pasta with short rib ragu was very good. Definitely a winner. Lobster bisque was ok and special stacked fried eggplant/tomato/mozzarella salad was disappointing.
Brenda was outstanding.
Rich and Terri continue to surpass all expectations
I strongly recommend the Cioppino, absolutely the best I've had outside of San Francisco. Great service!
Everything was amazing. We had the salmon cakes and Della casa salad for starters. We ordered the tenderloin mudega and the fettuccine Leonardo. The steak melted in your mouth and the fettuccine was very rich and creamy. Great place, atmosphere and service. We will be back.
We had a good time and a delicious dinner. I just wish there was happy hour in the restaurant as well, not just the bar.
Unnecessarily expensive. Not enough white sauce on fettuccine
LoRusso's we have enjoyed for many years. We like their salads which were perfectly prepared.
Their in house crackers (You can buy to take home) are truly delicious. Pasta dishes are stars here.
Pasta stuffed with seafood and linguini were two favorites of the night. There are many items to select from including daily specials. I suggest not ordering the pounded thin veal.
We love LoRusso's. Always a great experience; last Saturday was no exception. Our group ordered from the regular menu and the specials; all were fantastic.
Great place to celebrate a birthday. The fried spinach is amazing
Wonderful as always.
The Best value for fine dining is St. Louis
Great food and service as usual.
House specialties are all outstanding. Flash fried spinach and arancini are among our favorite appetizers.
Terrific Italian food, the best on the Hill. I had the Chicken Teresa; my wife the Tortellini. Both were full of flavor and served hot. Bread was excellent, entrees excellent, dessert (tiramisu I think) was delish. Atmosphere quiet and reserved without being stuffy.
We are long time patrons of LoRusso's and we have seen a slight decline in some of the qualities that we used to love about the place.
The wait staff used to be better and the service (because of that) used to be better.
The food is always delicious. I am not sure who prepared it since Rich was out of town when we were there.
Also, we had told them in advance that this was our Anniversary. We've celebrated our Anniversaries there many times and we always used to get a candle, a little piece of cake and someone took our picture. Here in my office I have pictures of us at LoRusso's from previous Anniversaries. In addition to a great memory, that was good advertising, as the photos said "LoRusso's".
Sad to see the place decline.
But maybe last week was an aberration. And the next time we visit it'll be back to normal.
Excellent everything as always
Excellent service, value and quality. They get it right.
Good restaurant the food, service are always very good. The bartender Taylor was very good. Great Italian food & very good specials.
We love LoRusso's.
This is the first time that we have had multiple courses on the table at the same time.
I find this infuriating...we had a waitress...
It is not professional to bring the entrees while the salads are still being eaten.
We had to accommodate her. Sigh.
We will still go to LoRusso's but will be careful about having this waitperson.
Great time.. wonderful service
My wife and daughter ordered veal Milanese and both were bad oily and dry. They were both very disappointed. We were in a rush so ...
I don’t think I will go back
