Located near the St. Louis convention center, 10th Street Italian offers good Italian fare in an inviting setting. The menu offers sandwiches (hot and cold), salads and soups as well as pastas.
My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch in early January. He had a bowl of the roasted tomato soup and a meatball sandwich. I had a Caesar salad and spaghetti and meatballs. The soup was house-made and is highly recommended, when available on the menu. The meatballs were also house-made and were delicious and tender. We understand from the owner that the meatballs can also be purchased by the pound to take home -- YUM!
It's open for lunch and dinner Mondays through Fridays and also serves beer and wine.
