Terrific Italian food. Best in StL. Friendly, helpful and efficient service. They'll customize your order to your liking. You can also avoid the overpriced wine at restaurants and bring your own for a modest $10 corkage fee.
St. Louis (and the Hill) is known for its Italian food. This place is family owned and operated with pride. It is THE BEST!
Pros: Outstanding Italian!
ive been to Italy and had fantastic food while i was there...that being said, it has been hard to find something comparable since i've returned. New to the St. Louis area I I have heard much about the Hill, and my first stop was here at Gian-Tony's...it was open Sunday evening when most were closed. Glad I went in, the food was phenominal, the wait staff was top notch and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this establishment. I had a seared scallop dish with a brandy cream sauce with mushroom, impecible. My date had a seafood ravioli, which they added spice at her request without hesitation. flawless. highly recommended.
The food is superb. This is the type of place you go to if you want your date to fall in love with you. Everyone should eat here at least once.
A great place if you are looking for old time Italin charm, and food. Evertime the food is amazing. It is a small place that make up for it with it's large portions. Hands down the best on the HIll. Everything they make is to die for.
Pros: Great Italian Food
Cons: A bit Small
We happened upon Gian Tony's after reading a review about it. We love this restaurant!. The staff is frienly and helpful, from the greeter to the busboys. We have been greeted personally by the chef on more than one occasion, and have seen him greet many other diners also to see if everything was as expected. The atmosphere is very warm and not too stuffy. Now...the best part...the food is incredible. The menu and wine list are really varied and not too expensive for the Hill. My favorites are the fried artichokes, tortellini, and (when available) the seafood ravioli. We love our experience every time! Highly recommended.
Pros: Atmosphere, friendly staff, incredible food
Gian-Tony's is a quaint little restaurant on the Hill. It seemed to be a popular place to eat, so making a reservation is advised. There is outdoor seating, although it was too cold the night we visited. There is smoking in the lounge when you walk in where a bar is located and there are also some tables there. There is no smoking in the remainder of the restaurant and you couldn't smell the smoke if you were in the dining area.\r
The staff was very attentive and the kitchen offered many daily specials from appetizers to entrees and desserts. One of us got the tilapia special, which was a huge portion and came with a side of pasta (you could get a vegetable instead of pasta) and a salad. Another friend got a pasta primavara dish which she thought was excellent and light. The pasta dishes are ala carte. I got the broccoli and provel stuffed chicken with a side of pasta and salad. It was delicious! We also got 2 appetizers - the bruschetta (very good) and an eggplant spread, which was a special of the night. I'm not an eggplant fan, but the other two loved it.\r
All in all, this is a great place to eat, with good, prompt service, a good ambiance, and great food. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the St. Louis area looking for a good Italian place on The Hill.
Pros: Great food, great service
Cons: Smoking allowed (but only in lounge)
Low cost interior and minimal investment in decor. The service was really good! The food slightly above average. Very nice wine list. Family oriented fun place to have dinner and drinks. Certaintly feels like you are home in Italy at one of the local spots.
Pros: Overall good price value
Gian Tony's is a great family, or date place. Accross the street from Berra Park it's easy to find and far enought off the main drag that parking is not much of a problem. Not alot of people know the history... The owner Tony, was the executive chef at Giovanni's right down the street. He took his talents and opened Gian Tony's. It is the premier food and ambiance that you would expect from a 4 star joint, but at a much more reasonable price!
Cons: I live too far away!
Gian Tony's is the Italian restaurant all other Italian restaurants aspire to. In particular, their cream sauces and seafood are extraordinary, but beef, poultry, and veal are also uniformly excellent. Throw in great service, a solid bar, and ambience that makes it perfect for impressing a date or clients, and you have everything you could ask for.
Pros: Food, Service, Ambience
The service was god; the food was only fair; they had no healthy menu items. Overall, we had fun, but I doubt we'll go back.
Cons: no healthy items, food, expensive
This is one of my favorite places to dine. Their large menu is authentically Sicilian and is very reasonably priced. I recommend their Involtini (appetizer), Veal Chop, and the TIRAMISU!!!!!!!
Pros: great atmosphere, great food, great service
The restaurant has been newly renovated and enlarged with a whole new look and feel and will accomodate groups. Still offers the same great service and personal attention to their guests.
Great place. We have been going there so long our favorite busboy has grown into our favorite waiter. Recently expanded the wait for a table has decreased. Food is fabulous, the staff personable and solicitous. Tony is a great chef. They do have a private room now if you have a large group but I would recommend you make a reservation. It is worth the wait however if you don't have a reservation and are not starving.
Superb establishment...Worth every dime...have recommended to everyone I know...Owners know how to make every patron feel welcome as if family...If you need to impress, you can't go wrong dining at Gian-Tony's...
Pros: FOOD!!!!, atmoshpere, service
Cons: highchair limited
Wonderful food, full of flavor. The scallop pasta and the filet modiga are both great choices. Better than any other restaurant I've eaten at on the Hill.
Gian-tony's On the Hill has great food. They have romantic atmosphere, and low prices.
as a long time resident of st louis and now a frequent visitor i have enjoyed many excellent meals in the converted house that is now the best place for food in st louis.
There is nothing bad about this place. It is truly one of my favorites! I am a Hill girl. I prefer Pure Italian Restaurants over a chain any day! They are the best!
