From dallas and heading to St Louis next weekend. I have heard that St Louis has great Italian, but have yet to find any on prior trips (besides the toasted ravioli which is delicious). Any recommendations for a budget friendly Italian restaurant that serves the kind of Italian food that is so good you want to take pictures of it? Preferably fresh homemade pasta and not the standard tourist trap type places, please. We will be traveling with a well-behaved three year old so kid-friendly places are preferable. Doesn't' have to be on the Hill. We are staying near the airport but are willing to drive for good food.
Thanks so much!
