The February issue of St. Louis Magazine gives us all the Italian food information we could want. 50 Ways to Savor Italian Dining in St. Louis. They list and link to local Italian restaurants doing the best in 18 categories. A few on the East side even made this list time. Shocker! Most of the time St. Louis foodies stories ignore the Metro East.
I'm glad to see one of the "what's out" items is nonsensical pizza toppings. And, Italian burritos are out.
Good article if you eat Italian in the St. Louis area. I do know I'm going to give Mungo's and Agostino's in Fairview Heights a try.
