Riverfront Times' Description

An upscale-casual Italian eatery in Dogtown, La Gra Italian Tapas specializes in small plates, pizzas and pasta. While the term tapas usually sends palates to the western side of the Mediterranean with its Spanish olives, seafood and cheeses, the dishes at La Gra maintain the European light-bite fare with an Italian flair, such as their housemade bruschetta - tomatoes, garlic and capers served chilled on a crostini - or arancini, balls of rice breaded, fried and stuffed with veggies and mozzarella. La Gra's pizzas are Sicilian style, thick and rectangular, covered in sauce and different types of cheeses, including the regular Italian varieties and the familiar St. Louis fave. Various specialty toppings include chicken spiedini, Cajun shrimp, barbecue pulled pork and the usual meats and veggies. Diners can also special order their own pasta combinations, such as linguine in a garlic-cream sauce with grilled chicken or fettuccine pesto with scallops. La Gra also offers larger entrées for hungrier patrons, including a pork chop Marsala or beef medallions with peppers, onions and gorgonzola. Reservations are suggested during busier dining hours.

    Don't order the veal. The sauce was good, but the veal was tough. It was over priced, only get veal and no sides.

    Not sure what the deal is but this place has fallen downhill in a bad way :(. Hope they get it back together bc I love this place!
