The 5 Best Menus at Restaurant Week on the Hill 2014
The legendary toasted ravioli at Charlie Gitto's. | Eugene Kim
We have several restaurant weeks around St. Louis, and it really is a great way to sample all that a neighborhood has to offer. Restaurants prepare special prix fixe menus to give you a taste of the awesome eats. The Hill is celebrating Restaurant Week 2014 until April 27, and we've whittled down the options to the menus we're salivating over. They're all $25 for three courses.

Of course Charlie Gitto's is on this list. There are other Hill restaurants with just as much (or more) Italian cred, but Charlie Gitto's prix fixe menu offers more of a selection while including St. Louis favorites. Start with toasted ravioli, garlic cheese bread, a mixed salad or a caesar salad. For the second course, choose from chicken lemonata, sauteed in a white wine lemon butter sauce with capers, farm-raised salmon with carmelized onions and a balsamic demi-glace, homemade six-layer lasagna with fresh tomato sauce, ricotta and mozzarella cheese or penne Borghese in a pink cognac sauce with prosciutto, onion and parsley. Try cassata or gelato for dessert. Make reservations here.
