My daughters and I visited St Louis for the World Robotics competition. We heard Charlie Gitto's is the place is get toasted ravioli so we went. The toasted ravioli was good, but I feel like the rest of the food was ok at best. The French onion soup was disappointing. The bruschetta was basically toasted Italian bread with a slab... More

This was recommended by a friend and they were right. If you have never had toasted rave then you are in for a treat. I had lasagna for my meal and it was out of this word! Everyone in the group love the food they selected. Don't miss this place!!

We recently had dinner at Charlie Gitto's downtown. Delicious! But what we REALLY liked was the family atmosphere and we were dining as a couple. The building was originally a pharmacy, with the pharmacists being upstairs and lowering the meds down to the customers. How do I know this? Because we visited with Charlie's grandson, Louie, who is now with... More

Can't be beat for old school Italian with a great and vibrant atmosphere. Hustling wait staff that are very attentive. Everyone is nice... even to silly Cubs fans.

Our group of 18 people from all over the United States attended the NCAA Wrestling Tournament in Saint Louis March 15 - 19, 2017. We ate all four of our evening meals at Charlie Gitto's Downtown Restaurant. The food was terrific and the service was exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a really cool little restaurant. Lots of old world charm. I really wanted to love it, but not so much. The food was just okay at best. The dinner salad was just that - a small bowl of salad and absolutely nothing else. It was like they just weren't even trying. The pasta was plentiful, but not great.... More

A visit to Charlie Gitto's Downtown is a tradition during the MVC Arch Madness Tournament. The food is delicious! Order off the menu or try the nightly specials. Start with the Toasted Mozzarella. Enjoy!

We ordered the appetizer plate which had fried mozzarella, ravioli, chicken wings and a crab cake thingy...all were amazingly tasty. My seafood ravioli was so very tasty and a good sized portion. We sat at Tommy Lasorda's table so that was too cool. It's right downtown so we went here after visiting the arch. I recommend it, the atmosphere was... More

A great sports bar atmosphere with excellent Italian food. Lots of pictures of past and current baseball and sports celebrities. Service is attentive and very good. A family owned business where you are likely to see three generations helping to provide a good experience.
