Top 10 Italian Restaurants

Top 10 Italian Restaurants in St. Louis – Charlie Gitto’s takes the lead

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) We first published the Top 10 Italian Restaurants in St. Louis list on June 27th, revised it in July and revising it again as there has been a major change in the first place rating.  For some time now, Anthonino’s Taverna, located on The Hill as well, was rated the #1 Italian Restaurant in St. Louis, however, Charlie Gitto’s has replaced it taking the spotlight as the #1 Italian Restaurant in St. Louis, MO with 566 online reviews from customers that determine the rankings.

These positions are highly competitive.  The tension is probably unimaginable to most of us as perfection is the norm for these top-rated restaurants and restaurateurs.  Big money is at stake, not to mention big reputations.

Charlie Gitto’s has been located on The Hill since the mid-1980’s.  They have grown, adding two locations, one in Chesterfield, MO on Olive Blvd and the other at Hollywood Casino in Maryland Heights, MO.  Charlie Gitto’s is not only the best Italian restaurant in St. Louis, but they are rated as the 6th best restaurant in the St. Louis area.

According to our public database, currently, the “Top 10 Italian Restaurants in St. Louis, MO” are:

  1. Charlie Gitto’s – Rated #6 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  2. Anthonino’s Taverna – #9 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  3. Zia’s Restaurant – #14 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  4. Roberto’s Restaurant – #14 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  5. Tony’s Restaurant – #17 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  6. Pi Pizzeria (Washington Street) #18 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  7. Cafe Napoli – #22 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  8. Pastaria – #23 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  9. Trattoria Marcella – #32 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star
  10. The Crossing – #33 of 2281 Restaurants in St. Louis – 4.5 Star

As you can see the competition is fierce with all 10 restaurants scoring a 4.5 Star rating with each having between 154 to more than 600 reviews.  To say that the competition for this position is fierce, is an understatement.   Considering that there are thousands of restaurants in the St. Louis area and to rank in the Top 10 at all is amazing, not to mention impressive, but to rank #1 is an unimaginable accomplishment.  It is amazing that one organization can please that many people.  It is a big statement about how they do business, but more importantly, it proves that they know how to serve the finest cuisine with great service to receive these kind of reviews from customers.

We would like to congratulate Mr. Charlie Gitto Jr. for this unimaginable accomplishment.  It is a well-deserved recognition that one should be proud of.   We would like to congratulate the entire staff at all three Charlie Gitto’s locations because an accomplishment of this magnitude is an example of some spectacular team work.  Great job Charlie!

TRATITIONAL OLD COUNTRY ITALIAN CUISINE – ROBERTO’S TRATTORIA

Roberto’s Trattoria

Raves for Roberto’s Trattoria – Italian Restaurant, St. Louis, MO

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – Who says that if you don’t go downtown to the Hill, you aren’t going to get authentic Italian food?  Not anyone that’s dined at Roberto’s Trattoria in South County.  This top rated fine dining, gourmet Italian restaurant has been collecting fans for years.  Located at 145 Concord Plaza, it’s the best South St. Louis County secret, and a great alternative to driving all the way into the city to the Hill.

Customers rave that it’s absolutely hands down the best Italian restaurant in St. Louis. Born and raised in Italy, Chef Roberto Zanti, grew up with the Italian tradition of using fresh food made from scratch.  And lucky for us, he brought that tradition with him to St. Louis.  The meals are well prepared, well presented, and seasoned to perfection.

Favorite appetizers are the “flash-fried” spinach, seasoned with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese and the fried calamari served with a lemon wedge and a tangy tomato sauce.  Another stand out is the special salad of the day–arugula, beets, goat cheese, and walnuts – fresh and beautifully-prepared.  Some of the delectable entrees are: Rigatoni Ala Vodka Lobster with shrimp & mushrooms, the Tortellini Alla Boscaiola Pancetta with mushrooms in sherry cream sauce, Chicken Spiedini Stuffed Breast in white wine Sauce with mushrooms, Fettuccine Al Pomodoro with fresh tomato/basil Sauce, Tilapia Fiorentina with white wine, lemon, & mushrooms over spinach, and Veal Marsala Shiitake with onions, chopped tomato & Marsala wine.

There are choices for heart healthy diners such as the Salmon and Roberto’s Filet, drizzled with southern extra virgin olive oil and served with roasted vegetables.  The food is said to be consistently top-notch, and the portions, very generous, so plan to take home a doggy bag…you’ll have plenty left over for lunch the next day.  And be sure to save room for dessert because you won’t want to miss Roberto’ s hand-crafted gelato, laced with tiny ice crystals.  You can choose from Pistachio, Chocolate, Spumoni, Hazelnut, Strawberry, Cappuccino, Amaretto, or simply their delicious Vanilla, all made in the house.

The restaurant also boasts of an extensive selection of wines ranging from some very nice affordable American and European wines to the very best Reserve wines from Italy.  The ambiance is peaceful and relaxing, and the staff, very attentive.  If you’re looking for high quality food and an old school Italian experience, Roberto’s won’t disappoint.  It’s like taking your very own trip back to the old country.
