How many time's can anyone say that this has happened to them. I was in St.Louis for the ICRS convention when one of my clients asked to take our staff to dinner. Since I am original from St. Louis they asked if I could make the reservations or recommend someplace since all of the places they called were closed on Sunday's. Called Sanfilippo's because they showed they were open on Sunday's when Major C's were in town. Took it to mean conventions, when I called I actually spoke with Joe the owner who thought that the convention didn't open until Monday. Let him know that most people would be coming in on Saturday and Sunday. He took my cell number, talked to his staff called me back to say he would OPEN FOR US. The service was Great, the food even Better. Way to go Joe, you have now become a new favorite on my list. My family lives here so I will be back. Great service desires to be rewarded. If you are in the downtown area for a Cards or Rams game make this a necessay stop. I can't say Thank You enough!!! for making the evening wonderful for us.
Hey, i'm not a profesional food critic, so i won't try to tell you how anything "should be" I have been going there for years for lunch & I bring my family for dinner. I think they have great food! For lunch I get the Herb Chicken with pasta & a vegetable for $8.50 tax included. When i go with my family, I always get the Hill pizza, ( i'ts not the usual pizza you get everywhere you go.. it has a crispy crust and they use provolone instyead of mozzarella.) My wife always gets the Chicken Parmesan. the kids like that they get an ice cream bar.. lol. I think what I like most is that they don't pretend to be something that they are not.. they just serve great food and i have become freinds with many of the staff. It's always fun to go there.. don't expect a fake "Hello, How do You do Sir"...instead ecpect to experience a working italian restaurant thru & thru... Like i said, i don't prtend to be some expert.. i just tell it like it is!
Rigazzi's isnt like most of the restaurants on the hill. Here you wont find the stuffy atmosphere and high prices but instead a fun filled evening with a light atmosphere. The food at Rigazzi's is simply excellent (I recommend the Bakes Pasta Pepperonata or the Chicken Mary) Food always tastes wonderful even more than what i was expecting. The pasta dinners come with salads and under 20 bucks even with a drink (try that at giovanni's) lol My uncle has been going to Rigazzi's since the 70's and eating the fried chicken... I have personally never tried it but he swears to it. Good service food and prices....5 Stars!
