John Mineo's Italian Restaurant
A little over a decade after John and Anna Mineo's 1958 arrival in St. Louis, they chose to open a quaint 12-table restaurant to carry on the culinary traditions of their native Sicily. More than 40 years later, John Mineo's Italian Restaurant stands in the same spot, sporting an addition that allows the dining room to seat 180 guests, as well as a handful of new family photos decorating the walls. Tuxedo-wearing servers move from table to table, carrying Sicilian-inspired dishes such as tenderloin Napolitana as well as steaming bowls of freshly made pasta covered in bright sauces.
