Excellent first visit, sure to be the first of many! Hunter provided excellent and attentive service and the food/drinks were wonderful. Large and filling portions - all three members of our family took food home and we had a lovely lunch today. :) Thank you, O + O Pizza!

About the restaurant
"Patio seating is first come, first served. You can make a request for the patio in your reservation, and while we can't guarantee patio seating we do try to honor your request*

Located in historic Lafayette Square just south of downtown St. Louis, Square One Brewery & Distillery began operations as a Brewery & Restaurant in February of 2006. We strive to produce the highest quality and unique flavors that are not likely to be found in the large volume production of most beer and spirits today. By combining the expertise of the distiller, master brewer, and chef, we are committed to creating an amazing array of flavors and tastes for our customers.

I Love Square One brewery and Distillery I often go just by myself and sit and enjoy a meal and a drink at the bar. This time I was on a date at the Square One Brewery and Distillery so I didn’t sit at the bar and took an outside patio seat. It was very quaint, and the food is always delectable. I really enjoyed my time as I always do.

About the restaurant
When I opened my doors in July of 2009, I committed to serving the freshest Italian dishes made from local and seasonal ingredients. I learned early the heart of Italian cooking is the flavor…or sapore. My school of teaching was from the best; my Nonna Elena and Mother Lia. Their philosophy has been carried on in my style of cooking: use simple ingredients and the food will speak for its self. Classic Italian dishes grace the menu but are personalized with my unique touch. Quality and consistency is what you will find with each dish. I would never serve anything short of that. So whether you are looking for a memorable night out or a glass of wine with friends, I am glad that you have chosen Sapore. As in true Italian tradition, I enjoy bringing people together through food. Ciao –
