Wanting good Italian food and going to Charlie Gitto's never disappoints when we are in St. Louis. The service is superb and the food melts in you mouth and your tastebuds are on a ride that make you want to eat every bite. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves the best Italian food!

Elegant! Greeted promptly by hostess. Enjoyed a drink at the bar while our table was readied. We had reservations and received Charlie's booth! Food was sumptuous. Italian classics done right! Save room for dessert. Service was outstanding.

Weather you're taking your clients here for business or your husband/wife on a date this is must dined spot! All the pasta is homemade and you can defiantly tell it doesn't come out of a box. The sauces are full of flavor from the natural ingredients and added spices. As far as desert, I highly recommend my personal favorite, cannoli

My family has dined at CG's multiple times including our recent visit in March. The service and food have consistently been terrific. This time I tried the salmon (on a diet!) and it was really good, even without the herb butter applied. I love the atmosphere and the overall feel. Really good!

GREAT! Old, dark, great service, nice wine list and even better food. Definitely worth seeking out! The veal chop Milanese was extremely good.

The atmosphere was great for meeting a friend. We sat at the bar until she arrived. The bartender was great and recommended a few menu items. The food was great and service was excellent!

Well worth the drive from MN. We loved the homemade noodles. Parking was easy, staff was very friendly and informative. The flourless cake for dessert was to die for and more than the three of us could share.

The first time (16 years ago) I took my future-wife here we ate outside on the patio. The food was the best I had tasted to that point in my life and the service was impeccable. Forget the 10%-20% tip calculations, this service is worth 30%!! We've been a few more times since then, including my proposal to her on... More

My family and I had dinner at Charlie Gitto's last friday night. This was our first time but not our last. The food was incredible and the service was first rate. A very authentic Italian restaurant.
