ST. LOUIS – One thing is certain about the top-rated St. Louis restaurants: Locals and visitors alike love the Italian food in St. Louis.
According to a ranking by TripAdvisor, around 17 restaurants in the top 50 have Italian cuisine on their menu. In addition, at least 10 of the restaurants include steak as a main part of their menu.
However, TripAdvisor data also shows that St. Louisans sometimes look for specialties like Peruvian or Bosnian food. Both the Grbic Restaurant and Peruvian Mango cuisine were on the list.
This year there were some changes in the ranking compared to last year. Eight restaurants that were listed in last year’s leaderboard are no longer there, including favorites like Pappy’s Smokehouse and Blues City Deli.
That said, there are eight newcomers to the list – including 801 Chophouse and Pastaria.
