Great for Dates and Groups – Bar Italia has some of the tastiest pastas and desserts outside of the Hill.

A very handsome wine list accompanies a variety of italian classics.

If you find a particularly nice night in the fall, sit outisde. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until Spring to enjoy the outdoor patio.

User review by oralewis – First time diner. I dined with a group of educators and students recently on a Friday evening. I was extremely impressed. This was the best food I have tasted at a restaurant except one. I would recommend this restuarant to anyone I meet. I little pricey, but well worth the money both in taste and service. I really enjoyed this. There was some confusion with our reservation, but the service and food more than made up for the time we had to wait.

Superb Mediterranean fare and a gorgeous patio lure casual families and celebs alike to this West End favorite. – The Scene
No other spot in St. Louis feels more like Europe; the hours are irregular, the menu delectable, and no one discourages you from lingering over a bottle of house wine. Auburn walls, an approachable bar and a dessert and gelato counter create an air of tempting luxury. Stylish, courteous servers glide effortlessly between the smallish interior and the breezy terrace overlooking Maryland Plaza.

The Food
The caprese salad, only offered when both the mozzarella and beefsteak tomatoes are available fresh, is a perfect starter. Beef carpaccio is melt-in-the-mouth moist, sliced thinner than paper and served with chunks of fresh reggiano parmesan and capers. Among entrees, fresh-made, veal-stuffed tortellini is a guilty pleasure; frutti di mare with scallops, shrimp and veggies is a light pleasure. For dessert, the zabaglione--moist vanilla sponges and marsala-rum custard covered with whipped cream, toasted almonds, and bittersweet chocolate flecks--is a sure thing.

Great Place for Appetizers and Cocktails – The atmosphere at Bar Italia is one of cool elegance. It is a great place to people watch. The service is good as well, with our waiter being quite knowledgeable with the menu. My favorite part of the meal was the appetizer a beef carpaccio. The espresso martini we got for dessert was also very good. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli and thought it was good, but not great.

The Only Good One – This is the only good Italain restaurant in Saint Louis. In fact, every other place only serves Americanized (midwestern)-Italian food.

Great Ambience – This place probably has the best ambience in all of St. Louis. The drinks and deserts are fantastic. Try the espresso martinis and any of the cheesecakes to placate your palate. The menu is diverse enough that everybody can find something interesting and it changes often to keep the regulars happy. I wouldnt call it authentic Italian but the restaurants tries hard to maintain a European flair without being overly pretentious. Overall, it is a great place for an anniversary, a first date, or even a place to get drinks with a good friend.

Bellisimo! – Some of the best Italian Food I have ever eaten. I dont know how it made it to the "Cheap Eats" section of this site though. Definetly worth the price. Get some wine while you are here... Live a little!
