Upon entering Da Baldo's, guests are treated to the white-linen, old-school Italian dining experience with a St. Louis touch. Appetizers include prosciutto and melon, stuffed mushrooms and -- here's the St. Louis part -- toasted ravioli. The pasta menu offers fettuccine alfredo and cannelloni among other options. Da Baldo's entrées feature the mainstay Italian staples -- seafood, chicken, steaks and plenty of veal choices, including veal liver ghiotta with tomato, onions and capers. Finish off the classic Italian meal with one of Da Baldo's many options, such as tiramisu, sorbet or tartufo - chocolate and pistachio ice cream in a chocolate shell.

If you want to take a trip back to the 1970's this is the place, but the food is mediocre at best. The ribeye ($15 dinner special) was one third gristle and the soup was Campbell's Minestrone straight from the can. Perhaps the full priced entrees are better, but I'm not likely to double down and try one. I recommend that you go sit at the bar, have a drink and perhaps an appetizer. You might see Baldo himself, as we did, snoozing on a sofa to the cheesy accompaniment of an Italian game show from the overhead TV. I give it three stars for that funky, southside ambiance.
