STL Recommendations - Italian

discostew | Sep 17, 200809:38 AM

My wife and I are quickly approaching our 1 year wedding anniversary. I have not kept up on the STL restaurant scene like I once did. I am looking for some ideas on a truly great Italian place. We honeymooned in Italy and would live to recapture just a bit of the fun we had.

I know STL area has a large selection of Italian joints, however I have to say I have grown a tired of the overly sauced, heavy, northern Italian fare that dominates the Hill.

It has been a number of years since I have been to Tony's and while I recall exceptional service (as it should be for the price) I don't really remember the food being out of this world. I have always been a fan of Trattoria Marcella, but I have to say on my last two visits I was rather disappointed - the quality just didn't seem to be what it once was.

So, with that, any STL Chowhounds out there have thoughts on a place that will help us capture at least a small sense of the quality ingredients we experienced in the osterias of Florence or the inventiveness of the trattorias in Venice?

Thanks in advance for any and all ideas!
