Yes ... Not overly impressed! Meal served cold, out of numerous things. Pricy for results, would not run back there!

Give them a 2nd 'chance just passing through', they just opened. Joe Bacardi's is new to Swansea, but not new to the STL area. Try the Chicken alla mario, my favorite! Also, their pizza is the BEST St. Louis Style pizza you can get, and cheaper than Imo's!

TERRIBLE! overpriced. Not only did they serve my water in a beer glass (tacky ), but they put a wicker basket on the table filled with crackers, prepackaged butter, parmesan shaker, then they topped it off with bread. Really! Does anyone see how unsanitary this is? Gross. Not to mention my chicken was prebteddef probably from Costco. Also turn the lights down...

Well, I just tried the chicken ala Mario & it was fantastic! Our office had lunch brought in by & we all loved it. Can't wait to visit the new restaurant in Swansea.

Having the best "St. Louis Style pizza" is nothing to write home about. St. Louis style really doesn't even deserve to be called pizza, it's not even the distant cousin of pizza.

Not that i agree with Bellevagas as I've never ate there but let me guess.......Chicago style is real pizza. If this is what you were getting at I'd have to say Chicago style is more like lasagna than pizza. Actually most pizza in the states has been Americanized to our taste, kind of like tacos & authentic mexican food or gyros here compared to a gyro in greece so if this is what you were getting at head over to the MO side & go to the hill, make your own or move to italy for your pizza. By the way imo's pizza IS a St Louis original & better than any chicago style pizza, always has been, always will be.

I have never had Chicago style pizza (were I getting at that I'd have said "Chicage style is real pizza"), however as long as it at least has mozzarella cheese and not that nasty provel cheese-type product I am sure it's better than St. Louis style. When I first ordered an Imo's pizza I thought someone was playing a joke, some kind of nasty cheese-like product on a previously frozen baked cracker, SO gross.
