Even if pizza isn't your thing—which is unthinkable—the menu at St. Louis Pizza & Wings has something tasty and satisfying to please palates. The kitchen staff prepares 14 signature sandwiches, including an open-faced ham and cheese on garlic bread, and seven traditional pasta dishes for in-house dining or takeout. Double-decker burgers and boneless wings sate cravings for classic pub cuisine, and nine specialty pizzas come with hand-tossed thick crusts or St. Louis–style thin crusts.
Brew suds mingle with the red sauces and cheesy layers of The Haus Pizzeria & Bar’s Italian and American cuisine, which guests savor amid a flurry of activities that take place throughout the week. Pizzas sport myriad toppings, such as sundried tomatoes, basil pesto, and steak, and pair with hoagies, pasta, and wings to fuel patrons as they play poker on Tuesday nights or croon favorite pop hits, rock songs, and lullabies during karaoke on Thursday nights. On Mondays, trivia entertains brains with puzzling questions and free shots to each trivia-round winner. The piping-hot music notes of live bands and flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports serve as additional amusement.
The pizzas at Pizzarelli's Pizza begin with dough: freshly handmade rounds become thin-crust, New-York style, and deep dish pizzas. Then, the sauce: made without sugar, the sauce combines basil, oregano, salt, garlic, tomatoes, and spices for a delectable, tangy flavor. Finally, the toppings: freshly-cut veggies and freshly-cooked meats pile on top, mingle with cheeses, and provide the finishing touches to a delicious pie.

When founders J. Kim Tucci, Joseph A. Fresta, and John P. Ferrara first opened The Pasta House Co. in 1974, they wanted to elevate pasta to an art form. “Some artists sculpt, some paint, and some sketch,” they write on the restaurant’s website. “But, at The Pasta House Co., we create authentic Italian culinary delights.” A few of the locations even have giant, exhibition kitchens so you can watch as pizzas, pastas, and entrees come to life.
Naturally, The Pasta House Co.’s menu revolves around the Italian staple from which it gets its name. There are more than 25 varieties of pasta to choose from, including linguine with chicken livers and the signature lasagna, plus weekday specials such as stuffed manicotti. Meanwhile, the mangia bene menu—which translates to “eat well” in Italian—showcases the more wholesome side of Italian eating, with dishes low in fat and calories that won’t peer pressure you to break curfew.
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.
Papa Murphy’s serves up a tasty menu of handmade "take ‘n’ bake" pizzas created using dough, cheeses, meats, and veggies that are freshly prepared every day. After customers choose their pie, Papa Murphy's personable pizza fashioners will build the pizza in-store and then package it for customers to bake at home in the oven, in a pottery kiln, or over a pile of burning cookbooks. Customers can select one of Papa Murphy's signature pizzas or customize their pie to a more specific taste, culling from the four sauces, three crusts, and more than 20 toppings available. Watch as Papa Murphy’s pizza professionals corral the ingredients of a signature pizza such as the Cowboy ($13.99 for the 16” family size), complete with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, and black olives, or request a Chicago-style stuffed pizza ($15.49 for the family size), packed with onions, mozzarella, four kinds of meat, and one of the most efficient public-transit systems in America. Thin-crust fans can opt for an Herb Chicken Mediterranean deLITE ($11.99 for the family size), smothered with feta cheese, olive oil, and spinach, and veggievores can avail themselves of Papa Murphy’s gourmet vegetarian ($14.99) option, which comes saturated with a creamy garlic sauce. Side your pizza with a chicken Caesar salad ($5.99), an order of cheesy bread ($3.99), or a two-liter soda ($2.49).
