We had read reviews and decided to dine here during our yearly trip to St Louis and boy we were not disappointed. From being seated by the door in a little private nook and wheeling up a portable heater to insure we were warm and toasty before placing our order. We had a very warm server who always came with a smile and worked hard to make our first visit our very best time ever..and she did succeed. We started with the antipasto plate. The cheese especially one blue cheese so darn good and high quality and creamy pungent. all the component i seek in a cheese plate. The meats were pretty damn good too..The proscuitto and salamis and even the house made crostini. We then both had the egg ravioli which was the richest pasta dish i've had. So many have already commented on it so i won't. But i will say just order it if you come here. Just everyone who brought something to our table were so helpful and made sure everything was to our liking and it surely was

Great ingredients are melded into dishes of unbelievable creativity. I recommend getting the multiple course meal as you really get to taste the chef’s talent. Mushrooms are the unofficial house specialty. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly, never pushy.

Gotta tell ya, this is a first class restaurant, with a first class chef. We had the 7 course chef special, I'm not sure that whatever I say would be good enough to describe how truly amazing this meal was. It all started at the bar with the very wine knowledgeable bar tender and a great red wine flight. Be sure to do this !!! Then to the table and 7 courses of surprising choices and an wonderful tastes and some serving wrinkles that were unique and fun. This is great date night place , very cozy and some of the best seating and wait staff I have run across in a while. Visit these folks tellem Kent and Suzanne sent ya.

Everything we ate was amazing from the salad to the soup to the entrées to the desert. The portions were amazingly small and we were not even that full when we left. The time to wait for our waiter was way too long in between each course. Sitting outside didn’t help. I would still try it again and probably sit indoors next time. The food is too good to not return. I recommend any dish on the menu and would expect it to be fabulous. I don’t think I have ever had Italian food that’s good.

Visited here with a large party and everyone was very happy with the result. Most of us chose the 4 course tasting menu, which is a pretty good deal (although a lot of items carry up-charges on the base tasting menu price). They are known for their house made pasta, and those dishes were great: gnocchi sardi and tagliolini in partcular. Sea scallops and rack of lamb also excellent. Desserts also very good. Service was very attentive for our large group. Our only real complaint: noise level is on the higher side, but that seems to be the trend these days. Still, highly recommended.
