Very disappointing. Thought I'd try the new place on The Hill. They have about 5 Italian pasta dishes, maybe 6 red pizzas and 6 white pizzas. I ordered the smoked chicken. Not sure why it was under the red column - no red pizza sauce....More

Modesto offers a nice atmosphere, with a great selection of small plate offerings! Great for couples as well as small group (6-8) gatherings.

My husband and I love coming to this place and trying at least 5-6 different dishes each time. We have enjoyed almost everything some more than others. A few plates to try are the croquetas de champinones, empanadillas marlloquinas, salchichas de conejo, papas con queso,...More

I appreciate the vast variety of food to be chosen from, and not feeling too full afterwards! The plates are reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is a perfect ambiance for a date night. Would definitely return for dinner or appetizers before a night out.

They specialize in Tapas and Wine. We have been several times and are always impressed with the selections and the quality of the food. Love this place for a friend get together.

Ate here last night and won't be going back. I have been to just about all the tapas restaurants in St. Louis and this one had the worst tasting food. The atmosphere is nice, hence the 2 stars. The food was not terrible, just terribly...More

For four of us including an alcohol a piece, it was a bit over $100. Everything was well seasoned/cooked. Service was very attentive. If you want to experiment with food that's a bit outside the norm, this is a good place to go.

Beautiful setting, beautifully prepared food, and definitely ask for wine recommendation, and the servers will most certainly treat you right! I went here with a friend who lives in the area, and this is his favorite restaurant in St Louis. Couldn't believe such wonderfully prepared...More
