I recently visited St. Louis with a friend and had reccomended to us a restaurant called Charlie Gitto's. I have to say that it was awesome. Is this place well known throughout teh city and region? I had their soup of the day, a cream chicken noodle which was perhaps the best i have ever had, and teh shrimp scampi, which was well done. My friend had a caeser salad and glazed pork chops which he talked about all night. The atmosphere was great, and seeing all the celebs who had visited the place was interesting as well. It was a bit loud in there, and the walk up the stairs to the washroom was a drawback, but otherwise, it was great. And to top it all off, it was reasonably priced. Does anybody else feel this is one of the great restaurants of St. louis? if not, why not? just curious.
