At a Charlie Gitto’s restaurant, guests are number one. From the moment they arrive at our casually elegant establishments, we present warm, attentive and personalized service. Always on-hand is a professionally-trained sommelier to help diners perfectly complement their meal with a bottle from our wine list, which literally features hundreds of selections. While Italian/Sicilian preparations have made Charlie Gitto’s a name known coast-to-coast, our menu also presents an array of signature steaks, veal, seafood, pizzas, salads, appetizers and desserts, such as homemade gelato and Italian cookies. For more than 30 years, Charlie Gitto’s On the Hill has been a landmark for fine Italian dining in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis, Mo. Opened by Charlie Gitto Jr. at 5226 Shaw Ave. in 1981, the restaurant still operates today at its original location. Toasted ravioli is a signature St. Louis dish – and its birthplace is the kitchen of Charlie Gitto’s On the Hill when in 1947 a chef at Angelo’s (the name of the restaurant at that time) accidentally dropped a ravioli in hot oil instead of water. In 2004, Charlie Gitto Jr. opened a second location At Hollywood Casino in Maryland Heights, Mo. Most recently, he introduced his iconic Italian fare to his hometown of Chesterfield, Mo. in a fourth location, From the Hill.
