I was searching on Google for another biz in the area & noticed Meglio's tag - decided I'd see about posting a review since we haven't been there in a while & miss it - just my way of supporting the restaurant while I'm unemployed & can't eat out much. I'm really disappointed to see some people attacking it - we've been there dozens of times, have taken out of town family & local friends - even recommended them to a MO State Rep I worked with - and EVERYONE, WITHOUT EXCEPTION loved it! We've always had excellent service & great food. John has come by our table & chatted with us every time we've been there, like we were old friends, even though we don't know him personally. Don't let a few questionably-motivated people keep you from enjoying a great Italian meal with the atmosphere & service that you'd expect on the Hill.

Great service, good food and a reasonable price. I have been here several times and have been happy every time.

I can't imagine my restaurant would still be open if things were as bad as this former employee is stating. He is saying a lot but I'm only hearing one thing. I lost my job because I couldn't make it to work on time. I wish these websites would screen the reviews better.

As a former employee I would not recommend my worst enemies to this restaurant. There are so many health code violations the place should be shut down. I have witnessed on numerous occasions some of the cooks using the bathroom and leaving without washing there hands including the owner. We have sent out numerous meals with meat on the verge of spoiling and were told to "just rinse it off" to get rid of the smell. There have been several time that mold is scraped off certain items and then served. One of there cooks has had his hands down his pants several times and then proceeds to cook. Warnings from the healthdepartment are over looked and then taken care of quickly when they come back for an inspection. Raw meat is handled without using glove then these contaminated hands are used to assemble plates. When we used a meat tenderizer there is no use of a barrier to keep bl00d and fragments of raw chicken or beef off of plates or plates with food, instead these now contaminated plates are wiped off with a dry towel. This is what happens behind the closed doors of your neighborhood Italian restaurant MEGLIOS.

Pros: if you want to take the chance of getting sick

Cons: this could fill a book

I've have never experienced anything like what happened on July 30th in my restaurant. I was in my office when one my servers came to me very concerned. She told me a customer says he found hair in his sauteed mushroom and onions. I promptly proceeded to the dining room very concerned. The customer said he was disgusted with what he found and would like me to take his 95% eaten meal off of his bill. I looked carefully at the item on his plate and told him I didn't think it was hair. It looked more like plant fiber. But I didn't argue with the man and agreed to take the meal off of his bill. I took his plate back to the kitchen and proceeded to adjust his bill. At this time my server came back to the kitchen and told me the couple were leaving without paying. I proceeded to the parking lot and ask the man why he was leaving without paying. He told me to go back in restaurant and that there was money on the table in the book. I explained to him, very upset I might add, that you don't come into my restaurant, make a scene and split on the bill. I then ask him why he left the way he did. He said he felt the $15 was enough to cover the meal. I told him he didn't give us the opportunity to adjust the bill yet how would he know if that was enough to cover it. He didn't care. He ate 95% of his chicken speidini and she ate all of her baked mostacioli. He left the restaurant without paying my server enough money, and the only thing threatening about my behavior was protecting my restaurant from people who leave without paying. I still have the plant fiber in an envelope on my desk. It turns out to be the hair from the end of an onion that somehow found it's way into the sauteed mushroom and onions. The way this individual handled himself was very suspiscious and I was totally expecting something negative to come out of this.

Found a swash of hair in my mushrooms and onion side. Not just one or two strands, this thing looked like the hair ball that accumulates in the shower drain. After informing the wait staff it took the manager/owner 5+ minutes to come to the table. Without saying anything to me he removed the dish and walked off. The entire time our waitress was nowhere to be found.

Thoroughly disgusted and insulted I left 15 dollars on the table and left. Neither one of us had more than a few bites out of either of our dishes. We hadn't finished our beverages either, but I felt I should leave the waitress something. (15 Dollars was enough to cover my wife's pasta and coke, but she hadn't touched either)

The manager/owner chased my wife and I out into the parking lot cursing and screaming in a threatening manner. My wife was so frightened due to his aggressive and physical nature that she wanted to call the police. He really seemed dangerous.

I'm not really a complainer but this was the most frightening and disgusting restaurant experience I've ever had.

I'm a frequent guest at Meglio's. The service is phenomenal. The owner is incredible. They really make you feel at home. All of the employee's make sure you have the best experience, and take great strides to make sure you come back. (Which I'm sure most people do.) Their food is amazing. It's well worth the money. Every thing on the menu is good, I've tried it all. And the pizza is the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is great, and the place is clean. Great for all occasions, dates, parties, or sitting at the bar and catching a game on their huge tv. Great for kids too, even the picky ones!! Go see for yourself!

This is our second trip to Meglio's Italian Grill and Bar. I loved Luigi's pizza as a child, I am so happy it is back. The service was great, and the food was incredible. Well worth the price. The pizza is priced higher than - but is surely not to be confused with - chain store's "fake" pizza's. The crust is one of the best parts! Awesome. Even our picky kids loved it.

Pros: Taste - A blast from the past, service - server polite, timely, nice WELL WORTH THE MONEY

Cons: if you are used to paying for big crust chain restaurant pizza, you will not like the pizza nor price

So I grew up near the original Luigi's and once I heard this restaurant was using the same pizza oven, i went right on over. My first trip was excellent, just what I was expecting, the 2nd trip was right at 10:00 and they were closing.
I didn't notice anything too pricey about the bill, you want good restaurants to make a little $$$ so they stay in business dont you?
there's always the $5 $5 $5 YUK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Three of us went there for lunch and it took 15-20 minutes for the pizza to arrive at our table. We drank two sodas each waiting for the pizza to arrive. The pizza was good but was slightly overcooked. My biggest concern when settling the bill was the menu and its layout. All the ingredients were listed at the top with the prices for large, medium and small that followed. Then it noted an additional charge for additional toppings, however, it never stated the original price of a large, medium and small was for "cheese" only. After questioning the bill the waitress explained the pricing structure which still didn't account for another pricing error; the menu displayed an old price. The cost of the pizzas increased a couple of bucks, however, they didn't update the menu. The pizza is good but way overpriced. We'll never go back again!
