Best Italian Restaurant (Cheap) - 2008
10th Street Italian
We could tell you about the meatballs. Oh, the meatballs. Tender, perfectly seasoned and absolutely delicious in a fat sandwich with marinara sauce and provolone cheese. All that (and a bag of chips) for just $6.95. We could tell you about the other sandwiches, the twelve-layer lasagna or the simple, tasty pastas — all of which will set you back less than $10. And we should tell you that the original downtown location has spawned a suburban sequel at the border of Kirkwood and Valley Park. Really, though, all you need to know about 10th Street Italian is spelled out on the restaurant's website: "No Toasted Ravioli. No Alfredo. No Provel." Word.
