Grassi's Ristorante and Deli Was Established in 1968.

Its original location was on "the Hill" and served the local community from the corner of Kings highway and Potomac. In 1976, Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli opened its second location in what was then "West County" on the southwest corner of Route 66 (Lindbergh) and Conway. A few years later, Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli's third location was opened in the "Central West End" along Euclid.

The original location and the third location have been closed for many years. The second location has endured "the test of time" and is thriving amongst the lively "midtown" communities of – Frontenac, Creve Coeur, Olivette, Westwood, Huntleigh, and Ladue. In 1996, Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli's second location moved from the corner of Lindbergh Blvd and Conway to its current niche at 10450 German Blvd.

Over the past 40 years, Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli has had five different owners – Frank Grassi ("the Hill"), Jerry Watts (Central West End), Vito Agnello ('76 – '93), Glen Pariani ('93 – '12), and Frank Dyer ('12 – present).

Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli's unique location has it surrounded by many of St. Louis' most recognized private high schools – St. Joseph's Academy, MICDS, Chaminade, Villa Duchesne, CBC, and John Burroughs. In addition, Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli proudly serves the many employees of Monsanto's World Headquarters.

Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli's menu is simple Italian and the service is fast. Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli's cafeteria-style layout could arguably be the original Italian "quick service restaurant". The Italian salad and hot ham and beef sandwich ("House Special") are memorable and the most popular menu items. The dressings, sauces, meatballs, and roast beef are all made fresh from original family recipes.

Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli proudly maintains its "from the Hill" roots. Our bread is baked daily by Joe Fazio's Bakery, our pizza shells are fresh from Vitale's Bakery, our cheesecake and "gooey butter cakes" are baked locally, and when available, we buy our produce from local farmers. Grassi’s Ristorante and Deli is a constant in an ever-changing world!
