Here's a little known restaurant with item on the menu that I'd have to rate as one of THE BEST sandwiches I ever had. I've been to New York, Chicago, and eaten at nearly every spot to sit and eat at in St. Louis (i eat out a alot), and nary can be found a better sandwich that the Pot Roast Sandwich at Bertonoli's. In fact, my mouth is watering just thinking about it as I write this. Not to be confused with the roast beef sandwich, which is also tasty, the Pot Roast sandwich is best ordered with cheese and an extra side of au jus for the dipping. The place is under new ownership, and I've never been there when the new owner wasn't in there looking over the place making sure all was well. Good nice people, with a dang fine recipe. I've never tried anything else on the menu, just the sandwich, and the Roast Beef sandwich once by mistake. Frankly I'm afraid to try anything else as I'm afraid it will fall below the perfection found in the Pot Roast sandwich. Having said that, I have had the salad, and it is always fresh, tasty, and very large. However, they have a hotwing pizza that I'm just dying to try...perhaps someone can go get it and let me know how it goes.
First time eating here wasnt sure what to expect based on mixed reviews. We ordered pizza and hot wings. They wings were well cooked and seasoned. Portion wasnt what i expected but not bad. I would order again. The pizza was great for the whole family. I would definitly like to try there other styles. Menu has some great sounding choices. I will eat here again. However dining in wasnt a good choice. The room filled with smoke very quickly and was over powering. The drink menu is lacking very much. I cant say that anyone actually smiled. The girl that took our order seemed very unhappy. The owner was a pleasant gentleman who was very responsive. All in all i will happily try the rest of there menu from my home.
If you like thin crust you will love this place, it simply puts the other Pizza places to shame. The pizza has a wonderful flavor and is made fresh in a brick oven. They also have other menu items like, teriyaki wings and all the usual menu items you would expect. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed! (I am an actual customer lived in Arnold for 4 years moved to Herculaneum still make the trip to this place, it's that good!)
