    Make sure you make a reservation if you plan on going. I went midweek and this place was packed! I was by myself so I was able to get a seat at the bar. Really good and different cocktails. I got a buffalino pizza and it was great. Next time I'll try a pasta dish as those looked yummy.

    The services were great. The food was ok. It's not like I gotta go back for it. I don't really like the dim atmosphere to eat my dinner. The restaurant was small.

    I went here tonight with my parents. I wanted to try Noto since STL Today listed it as the best pizza place in the greater St. Louis area. They specifically mentioned the nduja pizza, so I just had to try it. Noto is a verified authentic Italian restaurant that serves Neopolitan-style pizza. This style of pizza is baked quickly at a high temperature (90 seconds at 1000⁰F, to be exact) and is typically served uncut. It is meant to be eaten with a fork and knife, as the inside is still a little "soupy" from the cooking method. I had my nduja pizza this recommended way, while my mom ordered the same pizza pre-cut. I honestly believe it didn't make a difference. Her pizza looked just as easy to eat as mine was, so I would just order it that way in the future. The pizza had good flavor, and the cheese combined with the light sauce resulted in a creamy bite. The nduja was spicier than I expected, so I think the pizza would have been better with smaller chunks more evenly distributed throughout the pizza. The onions and onion jam were delicious toppings. The crust was fluffy and chewy while also being fairly thin. My dad ordered the Italiano pizza and thought it was pretty good, but he said he would order something else next time. I also ordered a cocktail while I was there. The menu said it was made with gin infused with pea flower tea, so I'm assuming it used Empress gin or something similar. While all of the components sounded like they would yield a delicate, sweet, floral cocktail, I found it to be a little bitter. If you don't have expensive taste in wine, this is not the place for you. The glasses were about $13 or higher, and most of the options required you to buy an entire bottle, which started in the 30s range. Noto serves sodas made by Excel, which is a local bottling company based in Breese, IL. They are the people who make Ski, if you're familiar with that brand. Lastly, I ordered a single scoop of vanilla gelato because it was $3 and I lack self-control. The first flavor note I noticed is salt. I know that salt is often added to sweet things to give a greater depth of flavor, but this gelato tasted like it was made with ocean water. It was very strange, and definitely not something I would order again. The service was decent; my only complaint is I wish I didn't have to run out of water before our server asked if we wanted more. All in all, the dining experience at Noto was decent for the price, but not great. I probably won't go back since you pretty much need a reservation to get in, and it isn't really worth the effort for me. I think the food and drinks are slightly overpriced, but it still might be worth one stop in to try something new.

    Tried out Noto with a few friends. Everything was great. Good service. I will say food is always better with great company and we had great company tonight. I had the Margerita pizza and it was great. April had a pasta dish that had seafood in it so we traded and it was great too. I had an Italian old fashioned that was very smooth. The menu changes with the seasons approximately every three months. They fly in some ingredients from Italy. I would go back to explore more of the menu.

    Service was great and friendly! Very cozy and intimate venue. Most settings are for two. There is space for larger groups as well. The food is fantastic. The pizza is some of the best in the area. The crust is very airy. Reservations are suggested as this place fills up fast. We had arancini, and a burrata pizza. We also shared a charcuterie board and a braised short rib pasta.
