Johnny Gitto's - Closed

6997 Chippewa St. St. Louis, MO 63109 | St. Louis - St. Louis Hills | 314-781-8111

Location Description:

The Gitto family name in St. Louis is synonymous with Italian food. Please note, however, that Johnny's is a jewel of a different cut from Charlie's. The menu features familiar Italian food, including salads, pastas, pizza, and risotto, but this River Des Peres outpost is better known for late night libations and wall-to-wall crowds. At around 10 p.m., Johnny Gitto's turns into one of those curious institutions that we call “a 3 a.m.” Those showing up after midnight will find loud music, and St. Louisians of all stripes vying for their chance to shine on the karaoke stage. Designated driver beware: Johnny's does have parking, but as the night wears on, finding a spot is tricky indeed.
