good value – This place is a tourist trap. You get a ton of food for a super cheap price but it is still probably the worst Italian food on the hill. Don't go before 9 or you will wait forever to be seated. The bar resembles an old amvets post or elks lodge. The food is average but the service is poor and the restaraunt needs to be remodeled.
Great food, great prices – I am from out of town and ended up going here twice. Large portions and VERY reasonable prices. They are cheaper than chain restaurants and the food is soooo much better. My pasta dish was only $8.25 and I had plenty for lunch the next day. We got there on weeknights at around 5pm and the restaurant was already filling up. It looked like the wait started at around 6pm, so I would try to get there a little earlier if you can.
Great place on The Hill – I've been going to Cunetto House of Pasta for years and the place is great. If you want to impress an out-of-towner this is the place to take them to (and when they come back they'll always want to visit again).
DELICIOUS FOOD – GREAT FOOD AND TERRIFIC ATMOSHERE FOR A ROMANTIC DATE, THOUGH, THE LAST TIME I WAS THERE I TOOK MY PARENTS. THE BEST PLACE ON THE HILL AND THAT'S SAYING ALOT!
Excellent Food, best on the Hill – We love the quality! especially the Alfredo sauce, hope you're not dieting when you go there, though. Butter and loving care go into this food. one big problem: wait is waaaaaaaaaaay to long. especially if you come during normal 6pm to 8pm dinner hours.
Head to The Hill for a great selection of Italian pastas and desserts. – The Scene
For many St. Louisans, Cunetto's is synonymous with The Hill, the Italian neighborhood to which it has opened its doors since 1974. Their House of Pasta is popular with just about everyone--families, couples on dates, and holiday revelers. However, be prepared to wait for your table, since reservations are not accepted.
If you like rich food and your cardiologist doesn't object, order the tortellini bianco, a yawning gulf of pasta stuffed with meat and bathed in a mushroom, prosciutto, and pea cream sauce. If you'd prefer to dine light, try the spaghetti con melanzane, an earthy, smoky eggplant dish. The restaurant offers a few perennial favorites for dessert, such as the ubiquitous tiramisu, but chances are you won't have much of an appetite left after eating a titanic portion of Cunetto's pasta. Just remember you can always get a doggie bag.
Best Italian in St. Louis – Worth the wait, grab a drink at the bar and you'll be happy once you get to your table. Try a Cunetto's salad and some calamari. Any entree is good and the side of pasta is a meal by itself.
italian defined – I love canelloni but this... this is divine! Everything here is good but the wait. Often 30 to 45 mins.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN THE US – Originally being from Springfield, MO I made the trip to STL several times to eat at Cunetto's. After joining the military and being stationed in ND I never miss a chance to eat there. They have the best service and the greatest appetizers a man could ask for. I highly recommend this restaurant and would have to say it's the greates italian restaurant that I've ate at in my life.
Magnifico – I am italian, and have been a chef for too many years. I learned Italian cooking from 2 old country Italian grandmothers. And I have to tell you I was sceptical when my friend suggested we go to the 4th best Italian restaurant in the U.S.! I was blown away! Forget the morons that complain about the food and service. Creative, delicious, excellant classic service. The olive oil for bread, (baked fresh) fantastic, well spiced. A wonderful suprise! And the meal just got better from there. I would stand in line for the experiance every chance I get. Anyone who say's otherwise is........ how you say? Stunado!!!!
