We have several restaurant weeks around St. Louis, and it really is a great way to sample all that a neighborhood has to offer. Restaurants prepare special prix fixe menus to give you a taste of the awesome eats. The Hill is celebrating Restaurant Week 2014 until April 27, and we've whittled down the options to the menus we're salivating over. They're all $25 for three courses.

Charlie Gitto's (5226 Shaw Avenue; 314-772-8898)

Of course Charlie Gitto's is on this list. There are other Hill restaurants with just as much (or more) Italian cred, but Charlie Gitto's prix fixe menu offers more of a selection while including St. Louis favorites. Start with toasted ravioli, garlic cheese bread, a mixed salad or a caesar salad. For the second course, choose from chicken lemonata, sauteed in a white wine lemon butter sauce with capers, farm-raised salmon with carmelized onions and a balsamic demi-glace, homemade six-layer lasagna with fresh tomato sauce, ricotta and mozzarella cheese or penne Borghese in a pink cognac sauce with prosciutto, onion and parsley. Try cassata or gelato for dessert. Make reservations here.
