Ragazzi's On The Hill

I really did love St Louis MO....go when you can!

Good old school Italian....just got to love it!

A special enclave! The Hill in St Louis ... A portion of territory within or surrounded by a larger territory whose inhabitants are culturally or ethnically distinct! The best Italian I have ever had!!!!

It really was!

Stephen loves to talk with strangers, he's alot more social than you would imagine!

Over the years we have been to Saint Louis numerous times, but never made it to “The Hill”. Well, this time we were not coming home without going! The Hill is a primarily Italian neighborhood within St. Louis. The neighborhood is home to locally renowned restaurants, bakeries, and specialty grocery stores. The fire hydrants are proudly painted red, white, and green, the colors of the Italian flag. Old time baseball players Yogi Berra & Joe Garagiola grew up there!

The most notorious gangster in the history of the nation, Alphonse Capone, better known to most as Al Capone or Scarface, ran Chicago with blood and guns. A life-size mannequin of Al Capone is seated at a corner table... where Stephen joined Capone for a bit of chit chat!
He told him that violence never solves anything.....
