If you want "atmosphere," Chuck's is not your place. Frankly, the interior looks like it was last re-decorated when Truman was President. However, if you overlook that, you are in for a treat. Wonderful, wonderful Italian food, from veal and pan-fried chicken to pasta and delicious thin-crust pizza. They have great steaks, too, and mouth-watering appetizers. I have never had anything at Chuck's that was less than tasty. Yum, yum, and one more yum.

If you want an outstanding pizza, try Felix and Oscars. This is the only pizza place in Des Moines where we order a thick crust pizza. The thin crust pizza they offer is good as well. We prefer the Merle Hay location, most of the staff has been with the owner for years, and there is something to be said for loyalty. Good salads also, be sure and try the creamy parmesan.
I loved everything about this place! The food was amazing everyone was very nice and the drinks were nice and stiff!!!!!! I would defiantly recommend Baratta's to anyone I know!! The atmosphere was also very nice and quiet, a very romantic spot for your next date. All in all Baratta’s will have my business for a long time to come.
F&O's is the only place in Des Moines serving genuine Chicago-style deep dish: a mountain of cheese hidden under great sauce, on top of a made-fresh risen dough thick crust. Yum, nothing like it! They also surprised us with traditional thin crust pizza. My friend's looked (and tasted) amazing. So fresh!
If you're a fan of Chicago style deep dish you will love F&Os. I personally prefer the outstanding chicken wings. The meat falls right off the bone and comes with hot sauce and ranch to add to your preference. Really, the chicken doesn't need the dipping sauces but it's still a pleasent touch.
Ah! Prego! A nice break from the standard fare known as Italian here in Des Moines. Lucca, has had a different menu everytime I've gone - the service is excellent and the food is delicious. My only complaint: please upgrade the chairs...
The owner is wonderful and she demands perfection from her staff. The Italian food is outstanding and I go there at least once a week. The pizza is outstanding along with the onion rings and Italian fried chicken.
We ordered a cheese top pizza and had it delivered to our hotel. It was pretty good. A typical Chicago style deep dish. My husband, daughter and I ate half of a medium, so a little goes a long way.
I eat here every time I come to Des Moines. Everyone I take to this place loves it. Always get the chicken Spenini. Toasted Ravioli is also good. Well worth the visit.
you must try the best meatballs and sauces and the pizza is too die for let's not get started on the sandwicheds and salad bar best bang for your buck!!!
