Charlie Gitto's-The Hill

5226 Shaw Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110 | St. Louis - The Hill | 314-772-8898

Location Description:

Dim lighting and secluded booths make Charlie Gitto's a great place to be romantic, incognito or both: No one will notice you, because the crowd is always intent on the huge plates of old-school St. Louis-style Italian food set before them. Fried calamari, served with a citrus chipotle mayo sauce, is crunchy and spicy. The standout entrée is the tenderloin Siciliano: a buttery cut of beef two inches thick, smothered with Provel and mushrooms and surrounded by a phalanx of tasty vegetables. See listing for second location under "Downtown."
