THE Best Italian.
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!
Fantastic Gem of a restuarant. 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.
great place for a date. 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.
Best Italian on the HIll. 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.
Best restaurant on the Hill.. 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.
Great Place to Eat on the Hill.
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.
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.
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.
Local italian Dive. 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.
Great Place with a history.. 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!
They manage to get everything right. 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.
No healthy selections. 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.
