Solid but not great Italian food. Great service and the food was all tasty. I would consider going back but hard to believe this is a top 10 STL restaurant.

Most dishes are in the $20-30 range. A decent bottle of wine is about $30. Regardless, as a 2nd generation Italian, it is well worth the money!
