    Trailhead Brewing Company: Good Brewpub Fare!

    by NaughtyArty Updated Aug 13, 2010

    I've been going to this place every few months since they opened 10+ years ago. The beer is good & fresh, and they always have a good seasonal brew to add to the mix.

    Their food is also very good, especially the crab & artichoke dip (with fried pita bread), the BBQ Chicken Pizza, the fish & chips, and the fresh pretzels. Service is usually pretty good, but once in a while you'll get an inattentive waiter.

    Trailhead is a good place for happy hours, or just sitting on the outside patios drinking.

    Molly's: Good Cajun in Soulard

    by BigBlueOne Written Jul 26, 2010

    This place is cool for a few reasons... it has an awesome patio with a New Orleans'ish feel with a great crowd on weekends; the food is very good; it has a shuttle that runs to/from the Cardinal games.

    Can't stress it enough, this is one of the better 'patio scenes' in St. Louis.

    Favorite Dish: I keep getting the jambalya. I'll probably try something different at some point but for right now I'm stuck on it. Pretty good stuff...

    Carmine's: Steaks Near Busch Stadium

    by BigBlueOne Updated Jun 29, 2010

    Overall my rating on this restaurant is so so. The ambience was pretty nice, but they had the tables sitting on top of each other. The food, for the most part, was good. But we also had some dishes that I would definitely avoid.

    Favorite Dish: I had the bone in ribeye which was about a 4 out of 5. My wife had the filet and said it was one of the best she's ever had.

    The ravioli is very good (this restaurant is in the same family as Lombardo's Trattoria- check out my review). But the garlic mashed potatoes were absolutely terrible.

    Lombardo's Trattoria: Good Italian Near Union Station & Scott Trade Cen.

    by BigBlueOne Written May 16, 2010

    This restaurant is located in the basement of Drury Inn near Scott Trade Center and Union Station. The decor could use some updating but its not that dated yet. Overall, good ambience but nothing to write home about.

    Favorite Dish: I had the veal saltimboca which was very good but a little tough. My wife had the cappellini anthony and she described it as a wonderful sauce and the chicken was done just right.

    The toasted ravioli, which I'm not normally a big fan of, was awesome. It was more like a meatball with breading than any ravioli I've ever had. If you only have the toasted ravioli at one spot in St. Louis make it this one.

    Mango: Peruvian Cuisine in the Gateway City

    by BigBlueOne Written May 11, 2010

    My wife and I went to Mango because we've never tried Peruvian food before and we happened across their doorstep around lunch time. The ambience was your basic set up for an mid to up scale restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: We tried the Tamalito Verde, which was like a tamale without the shell (very good); the beef anticuchos (awesome flavor on the steak); and the pollo parilla (a little bland).

    If you're looking for a Peruvian restaurant I would highly recommend.

    Lorenzo's Trattoria: Lorenzo's on the Hill

    by BigBlueOne Written May 9, 2010

    I've made it my mission to try as many restaurants on 'The Hill' as I can possibly get to. The first that I bring to you is Lorenzo's Trattoria. We chose this one because I have a physician colleague that has a little weekend getaway right next to this place and he highly recommended it as great food without having to wear a tie. Needless to say, I wasn't in the mood for a tie that night.

    It was raining the night we were there but they had outdoor sidewalk seating. I definitely intend to come back to the area, if not Lorenzo's, on the weekend, grab a bottle of wine, and watch the people walking around.

    So... the ambience was fairly laid back, but the food was not lacking whatsoever. Nice surroundings but nothing spectacular (or underwhelming). Like anywhere in 'The Hill' district, come early as you'll have to beg, borrow, and steal to get a parking spot.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Ossobuco and (as its supposed to be) it was the most tender, falling off the bone, piece of meat ever. Supposedly the house special and it was worth every penny.

    Brasserie by Niche: Good French, Good Service

    by BigBlueOne Written Apr 28, 2010

    Went here with my wife and some of the people I work with and couldn't have been happier. The ambience is fairly laid back but the food is of great quality and very tasty.

    Favorite Dish: I had the trout which was prepared as well as any fish I've ever eaten. We also had the brie- excellent; and a desert that I can't remember the name of (pastry stuffed with ice cream??? don't know what its called but its gooooood).

    Mama Campiasi's: Don't Skip the Italians on the Hill

    by AKtravelers Written Sep 15, 2009

    Definitely make time to eat at one of the many great Italian Restaurants in St. Louis' famous Hill Section, known not only as the home of great pasta but the birthplace of Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra and renown baseball announcer (and Cardinals' catcher) Joe Garagiola. We had very little extra time in St. Louis, but made sure we squeezed in lunch at Mam Campiase's, a little corner restaurant that was chose because it met our primary criteria being that we were late for a wedding -- it was open. Open and delicious! normally, we wouldn't have minded if the service was slow, as we could have lingered over a flavorful antipasta or any of our wonderful tomato sauce drenched entrees while listening to a tour group get serenaded by a neighborhood Italian tenor (E gumbari/ Cimo sonare/ como si sono, une friscolette/...). But, unfortunately we had to rush, which left me hurrying out the door with hopes of returning to the Hill some day soon.

    Janet speeds off the Hill with a full belly!

    Bar Italia: Dine Al Fresco in the Central West End

    by AKtravelers Updated Sep 12, 2009

    Bar Italia is one of the more interesting places that we dined during our recent trip to St. Louis. We had a beautifully breezy and temperate St. Louis summer night -- a rarity, for sure! -- so we chose to eat on the patio of this innovative Italian restaurants owned by Ethiopian Americans. Their take on Italian cuisine teases the palate and the imagination, and there were several dishes I would have loved to try. In the end, I ordered the delectable chicken cooked using a medieval Venetian recipe while Janet and Tia chose the renowned tortellini. The wine list was excellent and the service wonderful, and a trip through the inside (empty that lovely evening) revealed an interesting decor.

    Tia and Janet enjoy Bar Italia

    Amagetti's & Cunetto's: Don't miss "The Hill" when eating in St. Louis

    by rexyracer Updated Sep 5, 2009

    You will not find better Italian food (I travel a lot, thus know), than you will find on "The Hill" in St. Louis. It is a South St. Louis neighborhood, mainly Italian immigrants. If you want exact directions ask any local.

    Took an out of town client to Cunetto's on a Tuesday evening thinking it wouldn't be that crowded and was WRONG. Over an hour wait. Why? The food is the BEST!!! If you are not into waiting check out any number of fine Italian establishments in that area.

    If you are downtown and not into the 10 minute drive to "The Hill" and money is no object go to Tony's. The only 5 star Italian restuarant in the country. Serve & Food is the BEST!!!

    Favorite Dish: The Special or pasta at Amegetti's and anything @ Cunetto's

    The Old Spaghetti Factory: Inexpensive and Unique Italian

    by TravellerMel Updated Aug 31, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love the Old Spaghetti Factory (even though it's a chain) - I love that they utilize historic buildings to house the restaurant. I love the "boudoir" chandeliers, and the streetcar dining section. I'm not sure what this building was originally, but the restaurant now resides on the lower level - you access it by way of the gorgeous wood staircase. For lunch on a Saturday, I walked right in with no wait at all. My waitress was lovely - as I was dining alone, she checked back often to make sure my iced tea was full and to ask if I wanted more bread. And the prices are great - a complete meal with salad, entree, hot fresh bread, spumoni ice cream, and iced tea came to $14, INCLUDING TIP!!

    Favorite Dish: I always get the mizithra cheese in some form - this time I got the Potpourri, which is pasta with the restaurant's four most popular sauces - mizithra cheese, clam, marinara, and meat sauce. Yummy!

    Logoed Window Entryway The Bar at the entrance (main bar is downstairs) Yummy!  My Potpourri and Bread

    Tony's: High End Eats

    by BigBlueOne Written Aug 27, 2009

    Tony's is supposed to be the best restaurant in or around St. Louis. It has a very high end waitstaff (2-3 waiters per table) so its a very good place to go for anniversaries or other celebrations.

    The wine list is exceptional, but very much on the higher end of the price spectrum (>$60).

    Favorite Dish: I had the lamb chop. Small but delicious.

  • Lamars donuts: Best donuts

    by coachnos Written Aug 6, 2009

    Found Lamar's on the web and read a ton of accolades. Decided to give them a try as we are donut lovers. I actually worked in a donut shop my senior year in high school. We spent less than we typically do at the donut shop at home and the donuts, service, and cleanliness were better.
    The donuts are not heavy as some tend to be. The cake donuts are especially light and moist. The long-johns were huge and completely filled. We were also given free samples of the pomagranite smoothie, which was good.
    We all loved the donuts and understand why Lamar's has been voted best donut.
    A must go for donut lovers.

    Favorite Dish: Anything

  • Faraci's Pizza: Good pizza, underrated place.

    by coachnos Written Aug 6, 2009

    Was online trying to figure out where to order delivery pizza from and was told Imo's. Found many conflicting opinions about Imo's on the internet, so we looked for a pizza place close to the hotel. Not too many close to our hotel, but one came up so I investigated it. No bad reviews and a very good story about it on the web. After convincing the wife to go, the location would fit into "Diners, drive-ins, and dives", but DO NOT let the outside fool you (the main location may look better). You can get take out (no delivery) or dine in. We ate in. We ordered a large italian sausage (home made sausage) pizza and toasted ravioli, with four drinks and tip it came out to about $26. The ravioli was not as good as I had hoped for, but the pizza was great (Saint Louis style). My kids loved the pizza and said it was their favorite meal on the trip.
