Charlie Gitto's Italian Restaurant on the Hill, Chesterfield, and Hollywood Casino Logo


Our Italian Fine Dining HistoryFor more than 35 years, Charlie Gitto’s On the Hill has been a landmark for fine Italian dining in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis, Mo. Opened by Charlie Gitto Jr. at 5226 Shaw Ave. in 1981, the restaurant still operates today at its original location.


Toasted ravioli is a signature St. Louis dish – and its birthplace is the kitchen of Charlie Gitto’s On the Hill when in 1947 a chef at Angelo’s (the name of the restaurant at that time) accidentally dropped a ravioli in hot oil instead of water.


In 2004, Charlie Gitto Jr. opened a second location At Hollywood Casino in Maryland Heights, Mo. Most recently, he introduced his iconic Italian fare to his hometown of Chesterfield, Mo. in a fourth location, From the Hill.


We invite you to experience the rich tradition of Charlie Gitto’s!
