    For a good sandwich, be sure to go to Adriana's.

    For a more traditional Italian meal, I would go to Lorenzo's Trattoria.

      Life is short, make lunch out of pastries. Go to the Missouri Baking company and eat all the pastries to your heart's content.

        Try Guido's. They have very good food at reasonable prices. Also, Shaw Coffee is good for a quick bite and a great latte. And Amaghetti's (I'm not sure how to spell it) has wonderful artery clogging sandwiches at a low price.

          I am a big fan of Milo's. Grab lunch outside and play Bocce at the same time - or watch others play. They have all 4 fried food groups - meats, vegetables, cheeses and pasta. Life is good.

            The food on the Hill is pretty lackluster with a few exceptions... If you want the best italian sandwich head over to Adrianna's (on Shaw just down the street from Viviano's). Adrianna's is family owned and the sanwiches are made with love. I adore the vegetarian Charlie sandwich with oven toasted provolone (no icky provel on this baby), mozarella, lettuce, tomato, olives, and oil/vinegar. The space is very low key and very casual. In my opinion, it's SO much better than Amighetti's which is pretty generic.

            I recommend checking out http://www.thehillstl.com. It's got a full list of all Hill restaurants on it.

            I've had the best luck at Zia's. Their food is terrific. Sometimes, the wait is long but I would be leary of patronizing a restaurant w/o a wait.

              Anthonino's, on Macklind, is very good. It has both Italian and Greek.
