We got breaded artichoke, really good with a little salt. A side salad, the blue cheese was superb. Thin crust pizza tomato,bacon, sausage. Our waitress was really nice, and we had an amazing dinner. Absolutely loved the location, there's a nice area on cobblestone to take a stroll Definitely one of my new favorite places to eat and enjoy a great evening.
Had a very nice evening meal at Pio’s. Jennie was our server and provided excellent service. The lasagna was excellent. The blue cheese dressing was most excellent. The atmosphere at this restaurant is very relaxing and worth your time to visit.
The service was OUTSTANDING!! Erica waited on us and she was beyond good. We had the stuffed mushrooms. They make them differently there, which they tell you on the menu and Erica warned me. We did not care for them, as they are deep fried almost to being burnt. BUT, that does not factor in this review, as I was told about and I decided to try them. What factors into this review, is my mom got a dinner salad, which it was not even close...it was iceberg lettuce, nothing else...literally nothing no tomatoes, no croutons, egg nothing. We were charged extra for the salad. Blue cheese dressing was described as sour cream base with blue cheese crumbles...there is no base it sour cream with blue cheese...it is not good. I had the french onion soup...that was Beyond excellent. I could have eaten a ton if that...and should have. We both ordered 2 Mostaccioli with meat sauce. (Here is where I let you know prices on their website do not match the present menu...understandably with the price rise today, also not part of the review...just a warning). The noodles were way over cooked, mushy. The sauce barely has meat in it...even though you pay more for meat sauce...and honestly, I am sure it is homemade, but it tasted exactly like Ragu. Absolutely no seasoning. BLAND.. Had 2 to go desserts. We wanted to leave becz it was so incredibly hot in there we were sweating. Pineapple cream cake and turtle cheesecake...both excellent and worth every penny. I had 1 glass of wine ordered like this "I would like a cheap blush" I was brought a glass of Sutter House...which was fine, fyi..6.00 a glass. The bill came to 69.24. (We drink water for dinner.) For what is basically what you can make at home, better. The bread was good but just bread...you pay extra for garlic bread. Now are you thinking " well you ate it"...no we did not. I took everything home to feed to my dogs and the squirrels in the backyard. We were starving when we got there and starving when we left. Went back to our Airbnb and ordered a pizza. I was so upset I forgot to tip Erica probably. So I drove back immediately and apologized and tipped her properly. She and the onion soup was the only bright spots. My suggestion if you are visiting St Charles go to Tony's. We are regular visitors (3 times a year) so we know the places but we always try to go somewhere new each time...this time wish we hadn't.
We ate lunch there yesterday. Chicken and dumplings, husband had roast beef dinner and a cup of vegetable soup. Everything soooo good. Oh, and split homemade coconut meringue pie! Sorry no pics as we were too excited to eat our food!
I’ve been loving Pio’s my whole life.. literally! My parents would go to Pio’s when they first met.. the staff is always so nice. The food is delicious! It’s a great place to host a gathering too.
