Bartolino's Osteria is located inside the Drury Inn & Suites in South St. Louis, near "The Hill" Italian restaurant district, and was very easy to find. It has a very friendly atmosphere, albeit a bit loud. The wait staff was attentive, and the food very good. A good value overall.

Bartolino's is and has been my favorite restaurant in St. Louis for many years. Bart, Mike, Linda and all their staff make you feel like you've walked into their living room when you enter. Pizza, salads, pasta- you must try the baked pasta, steaks & veal. It's all done so well. Favorites you have to try-- The Bart's pizza, Baked... More

The appetizers, salads, sandwiches and pizza are the best around. Sauces, dressings, bread, crusts, coffee, wines are all fresh. The place is just plain pretty--so Sicilian. The staff is remarkably friendly, efficient and attentive no matter how busy they are. We thoroughly enjoy dining here. You will too. Leave bad attitudes at home, please. It will destroy your experience and... More

We had a group of 12 adults. The waiter filled our drink orders promptly as soon as each of our party arrived. The waiter explained the specials for each section of our tables. We had bread, oil, balsamic vinegar and Parmesan. The food was delicious and very filling. The waiter was very courteous and responsive to our needs. I recommend... More

While situated in a hotel, Bartolino's is not your run-of-the-mill hotel restaurant. Our party ordered the gamut in entrees: pork chops, sole, pasta, and veal. Each one was exceptional. Side dish salads and vegetables complemented the entrees nicely. Service was crisp, friendly, and efficient--not too much, not too little. Sorry, can't comment on desserts--we were all sated from the meal!

This was a great place for a special occasion as it... More

My husband and I stayed at the adjoining hotel and dined here one night. It was possibly the best Italian seafood pasta I have ever had.

Solid Italian food. I think some people might be turned off at the thought of dining in a restaurant that is attached to a hotel but this one is worth a visit even if you are not staying at the Drury. My wife, mother, and infant son sat outside on a humid St Louis day. We started with the grilled... More

The Bartolino's on Drury is not friendly. If you tell them a dish doesn't taste quite right they are so defensive and tell you they have been to Italy and that is how it is suppose to taste. Ugh, NO it's not good! We had 5 people only one plate was bad and they acted like you were crucifying them!... More
