This Italian taproom boasts a hip bar scene and casual dining. – The Scene
Long, skinny windows, stained-wood ceilings and a roaring fireplace give Ellie the cozy feel of your favorite ski lodge. Customers sip Belgian White ale at the crowded bar, or recline in the red vinyl booths as an energetic, friendly staff eagerly assists. Calories are (slowly) burned upstairs in the game room featuring pinball, video games and pool.
Toasted ravioli is a St. Louis institution, but crunchy, Parmesan-crusted breading proves cannelloni belong in the deep-fryer, too. Smothered in crispy bacon and sweet tomatoes, the pan-seared scallops are also a tantalizing way to start dinner. The grilled chicken Parmesan, served without breading, features a tangy marinara, but still comes up a bit bland, proving the breading may be essential. The butternut squash risotto is the real standout, showcasing a perfect balance of garlic zing and caramelized onion sweetness. Sadly, the Guiliani chocolate chip caramel fudge brownie is served cold.
