Charlie Gitto's, the Chesterfield Spot

Charlie Gitto’s, the Chesterfield Spot

Love Italian? I do and I was excited to find out that when shopping in Chesterfield that you don’t have to venture all the way to the Hill for Italian because; Charlie Gitto’s has a Chesterfield location.

Gitto opened his first restaurant on the Hill over 30 years ago Besides fin food, the restaurant is famous for their toasted ravioli, which is a signature St. Louis dish. Staff at Charlie Gitto’s shared that “The birthplace of ravioli was in 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 ravioli in hot oil instead of water.”

I sampled some of this ravioli along with other fine fare. Great food at reasonable prices makes this a great selection. Log onto http://charliegittos.com and St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission’s http://www.ExploreStLouis.com website for travel information!
