I have been going to this restaurant for 35+ years. I knew the original owners. Our waitress seemed as if she was in a hurry to get off. She showed up with our check not even asking if we would like anything else, which we DID want dessert. This also happened to the table next to us. The pasta my husband and I had were both mediocre definately not like in the past, The tiramasu was great (good thing I insisted she hold off on the check and bring us a slice.) By the way I thanked her and did not receive a response. Everyone can have a bad day but when you work with the public and your income depends your customers- LEAVE IT AT THE DOOR!!

I was raised in Rock Hill, and knew Farotto's as a simple pizza joint. While it has expanded over the years, it never lost its "great personality"!

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.
