Liliana’s Italian Kitchen
    (11836 Tesson Ferry Road, 314-729-1800)
    “We LOVE Liliana's! Came here on a whim one night because we wanted pizza but not Imo's (no shade)! We were NOT disappointed. First of all, love that they have a drive-up window. The only thing better than delicious pizza is delicious pizza you don't need to put a bra on to get. They also don't fry the fried stuff until you get there so it's super fresh and crispy -- the calamari is some of the best I've ever had (I know, in Missouri. I don't get it either but it's true). We also loved their fried artichokes! Both some with a mildly spicy aioli which is fab.” - Samantha K. Read RFT’s food editor Cheryl Baehr’s thoughts here.
