Why did we not go sooner and stay longer!.
We were there two days ago and my wife said she had the best steak she has ever eaten. I had the pasta special (roast duck) and it was wonderful. The service was great and Char made us feel like we were regular, weekly customers. After three days in Chicago and then making a special trip thru St. Louis coming home just to eat there, it was indeed the highlite of our trip. it is a long way from our home, but we will make a special trip back to St. Louis to dine there again.
A local gem.
This is a lovely local gem. It's nowhere near The [Italian} Hill neighborhood, but it's an Italian treat nevertheless. We attended a birthday party in late October for a family member in the wine cellar. The food was simply wonderful. The calamari was sweet and tasty and the fried spinach was light and SO tasty. At dinner, the pasta course was light and absolutely delicious. For my entre', I chose (from 3 choices) to have a maple marinated tilapia and it was truly fabulous. My husband selected the veal dish and raved about it.. It was a truly wonderful dinner (as I knew it would be, as we had been there before.) This is a local gem.... I think I'll call for a reservation for tomorrow night.
Fabulous Experience at Frank Papa's!.
Orgasmic dessert! My friends threw me a surprise birthday party in their downstairs wine cellar room and the entire evening was an experience like none other! Dee and Michelle were our servers and were fabulous! The food was awesome and we dined on such selections as the grilled salmon, fillet, veal marsala, and chicken with lemon caper sauce. Even my cheesehead sister enjoyed the St. Louis tradition of toasted ravioli for an appetizer and the ricotta dessert was fantastic! This restaurant was amazing in every aspect...service, food & ambience. Thanks Frank Papa's for a great birthday!
