I loved going here as a little girl. I started going back about 20 years ago. They were ok, then something happened. They sold again. The food was not the same at all. They really went down hill. The pizza is still good but the rest of the food, well I wouldn't go back.

This was a decent place to eat. And we were able to take our time and visit without interruption. We had St. Loius pizza, which was something new for us. It's a thin crust pizza. It was decent, but not fabulous. Would I go again? Probably, but it's not high end good. It is a good place to bring young... More

Was told they had great pizza, it was like walking back in time inside.Everybody was so nice and listening to other customers who had been coming there for 50yrs. Best pizza with real cheese that made it unbelivable!!!

This place was a big deal when we were teenagers--a place to go for pizza and a date...but it is a tired, old girl that has not changed one bit in 45 years! There were a few locals at the bar--we were seated quickly. The waitress was very nice and attentive---menus were old. Dishes were dated but many and pizza... More

Wonderful for the whole family. Great Italian food and pizza at reasonable prices. We've been eating here for over fifty years and have never been disappointed.

Been to a lot of Italian restaurants and thought we'd give this one a try. It's been around St Louis longer than we have and that's a long time. Nothing noteworthy here. It's a thin crust pizza which I like. Just nothing special about it. Little blonde waitress, Michelle, was friendly a took good care. The decor could use some... More

Took the relatives and family out for the night. My wife had not been there since her high school days, suffice it to say a few years ago. The place is old and quaint, nothing fancy but as we found the food was reasonably priced and for the most part very good. I had the fettuccini alfredo with shrimp. Unfortunately... More

When I was a child in the 60's and 70's, our family would go to Cusanelli's on special occasions. That's where I was first introduced to toasted ravioli! I still enjoy returning there. The 3-D murals of Italy still mesmerize me. Last night, I took time to read the back of the menu, which reprints a history of the building.... More

My husband and I were traveling through St. Louis and wanted a restaurant near our bed and breakfast. I found this one on a website. It was the worst Italian food we have ever had. My husband's veal parmigiana was not real meat - it was a processed veal patty. The tomato sauce on his dish and my ravioli certainly... More
