About this Business
When he was 11 years old, Jim Parrott began working as a busboy at a restaurant owned by his sister and brother-in-law, Betty and Lou Farotto. That was in 1960. At the time, Farotto’s was a small operation, a 4-year-old Italian joint that served a few pastas, had limited seating, and offered carhop service. In the early 1980s, Lou stepped down and Jim stepped up to become the restaurant’s sole proprietor.
Since taking the reins more than three decades ago, Jim has helped Farotto’s grow further into its mold as a St. Louis institution. He’s overseen expansions throughout the venue, including the addition of an outdoor patio and larger dining rooms, which can comfortably pack in large crowds and the occasional herd of wild spaghetti noodles. The menu has changed a bit over the years, too, and today features customizable St. Louis–style pizzas as well as authentic pastas and sandwiches.
Best thin pizza in the area. (other menu items are great also) Started many years ago.
Pizza, pizza, pizza
OVER PRICED. SERVINGS OF PASTA ARE TOO LARGE. REDUCE AMOUNT AND PRICE. THEIR DRINKS ARE A BIT PRICY ALSO
Excellent salads and pizza, plus the service is fantastic!
above average food, service was excellent. Not a big sign outside so almost drove right by the restaurant.
Be prepared to wait
One of the best Italian restaurants my wife and I have been to. The food was excellent and you received a decent portion for a decent price.

Parking can be tricky. Best to get there before 6:00 if you can. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced.
