The former Riverbend Restaurant & Bar and Harvest, at at 1059 S. Big Bend, is set to be Del Pietro’s, a recreation of Del Pietro’s House of Pasta, which opened on Hampton in 1976 and closed in 2011, according to St. Louis Magazine.
Mike Del Pietro is the son of the owners of the original. He’s been thinking about doing another Del Pietro’s for years, he told St. Louis Magazine. He already owns six other restaurants.
Del Pietro plans to include “Spaghetti a la Angela, Beef Sotto (medallions of breaded and charbroiled beef, topped with cheese, and a white wine mushroom sauce), stuffed artichoke, spinach patty, and Chicken Burko (named after his father’s friend John Burk),” St. Louis Magazine reports.
Del Pietro hopes to open the doors in October after a gut-rehab. He plans to serve dinner seven nights a week and weekend brunch.
