The 5 Best Italian Restaurants (Not Cheap) in St. Louis
Bruschetta at I Fratellini. | Tara Mahadevan

Zoe Robinson Pidgeon may be busy expanding her Frenchrestaurant in Clayton, but before Bar Les Freres, there was I Fratellini. It's tiny, too, but somehow just right. Chef Ny Vongsaly's menu has classics like short ribs braised in red wine and can't-miss appetizers like Belgian endive stuffed with fresh mozzarella and then wrapped in prosciutto. Feeling frisky? Try the rabbit-spinach ravioli. Oh, and definitely save room for dessert.
