Cunetto's- A Saint Louis Tradition

Business Description
Since 1972, the Cunetto family has consistently provided great food at great prices. With a spacious, nice, but casual atmosphere for diners, and a prime location right "on the Hill" and with plenty of parking, Cunetto's has become a place for both locals and tourists looking for the quintessential Italian meal! So come in and find out why Cunetto House of Pasta tops the Best Restaurants polls year after year. Anyone visiting St. Louis must try Cunetto's and make it as much of a destination as the Gateway Arch or the Zoo. It may be the highlight of the trip! Vince and Joe Cunetto were always cooking in the back room of their neighborhood pharmacy. The three legged, two burner countertop stove had to be held up with a coffee cup, but it did the job. Whether it was a big pot of soup or an old family pasta recipe, friends, local doctors, and drugs salesmen would gather in the small back office for a delicious meal. In 1972, the Cunetto brothers sold the pharmacy. Determined to stay on "The Hill" in the historic Italian section of St. Louis, they opened Cunetto House of Pasta in October 1974. Cunetto's, as it is most commonly called, still remains in the same location and continues to serve the same delicious traditional Italian cuisine since the very beginning. Over the years, Cunetto's has become a St. Louis tradition. Many families celebrate special occasions at Cunetto's or make Cunetto House of Pasta their regular Friday night restaurant.

Simply the best Italian food in Saint Louis. Cunetto's has the best lasagna I have ever had, and coupled with some fine wine, it makes you want to stick around and tell stories all night!

Bravo to Frank and the rest of the staff on an overalll great experience!

Prices are mind-blowingly low for such high quality food and service. Decor is dated, but I don't go there to marvel at the carpeting. Om nom nom!! :) :)

Best Place in Town for Pasta

I have been going to this place since I was a kid, and the food has always been great. The wait for seating is a bit long, but the food never disappoints.

Cunetto's House of Disappointment

It has been 5 or 6 years since our experience with Cunnetto's and we had the same degrading service that obviously still prevails. We definately felt like the ""common folk"" on are visit, beginning with the no greeting the moment we walked in the door and an unreasonably tiring, long wait. Guess Cunneto's has such a great following they do not need new customers. We thought we would give them a try after all this time has passed but after reading the other reviews, we will not bother wasting our precious time, energy or money.

Disappointed but will give it one more try???

My Husband and I really enjoyed dining at Cunetto's. That was up to about 5 years ago. It was a very unpleasant experience. Granted, it was a very busy night, however when we asked for some bread, the waitress went over to another table where a couple had just left, took the bread off of their table and placed it on ours. I must say I was ""shocked"". We definitely requested some ""fresh"" bread and the waitress acted insulted. When we left, we spoke with the Manager and all he could say in rather a curt voice is ""what do you want me to do about it""? Seriously....that is all he could say. I think he thought we were expecting a free meal. We told him that we would never be back and we have held true to our word. I know that there are plenty of other good Italian places to eat, however we are thinking about giving this place one more chance. What do you think????

Fellow Italians give you 5 stars

My son and I flew to St. Louis with a friend. We live in Orange County California and own an Italian restaurant. I am Sicilian and Greek and my husband is Italian. We entered a busy dining area with a very friendly staff. For appetizer we ordered the Toasted Ravioli: Best I've had, also the Shrimp Diavolo and the eggplant parm: all great. For dinner we all ordered the eggplant parm dinner because we didn't get enough from the appetizer. This dish could have fed the three of us. Dinner salad was awesome. My 14 year old son actually ordered another one. The coffee was good the Italian waitress was a delight. We had a lot of leftovers and no fridge in the hotel. We left them in the trunk and due to the fact it was snowing, it was frozen by morning and ready to reheat. I have to have another surgery in October and can't wait to eat at Cunetto's again! Hats off to St. Louis!!! The people are warm and wonderful.

We just redesigned! Do you like it?
