Each month, Chef Jon Ashton, travels the country to learn and teach all about popular cuisines.  This month they featured Charlie Gitto’s and their popular Toasted Ravioli.

Known and loved by most St. Louis residents the Toasted Ravioli was created on The Hill in a restaurant known at the time as Angelo’s, which is now home to the famous restaurant, Charlie Gitto’s.

While Anthony explains the origin and the process of making this popular cuisine, nobody will ever know the secret recipe that makes Gitto’s spectacular dish known and loved across the city to hundred or thousands of guests everyday.  Thousands of Toasted Ravioli’s are made and served at Charlie Gitto’s three locations each week making it one of the most popular restaurants in St. Louis.  While Gitto’s is known for their Toasted Ravioli, they are also popular for all of their Italian cuisines, steaks and seafood that attracts similar attention.

Not only is Charlie Gitto’s a popular dining destination, it is a popular caterer, which serves thousands of Toasted Ravioli’s each week, in addition to those served at the three restaurants.

October 3, 2016, STLRestaurant.News published an article, “Top 10 Italian Restaurants in St. Louis” announcing Charlie Gitto’s as the best Italian restaurant in the St. Louis metro area according to a popular online review/rating service.

November 17, 2016, St. Louis Magazines’ George Mahe interviewed and published an article titled “Q&A: A Conversation with Chef Charlie Gitto Jr.“.

At this point, with all of the publicity and success, it is indisputable who the most popular restaurateur is in the St. Louis metro area.  STLRestaurant.News will continue to monitor Charlie Gitto Jr. and his restaurant empire.

As we approach the end of 2016, most of us look back at our personal/professional accomplishments and/or failures to help us decide on our New Year’s resolutions.  We are anxious to see what New Year’s resolutions from a man like Charlie Gitto Jr. might be?  Stay tuned!
