We were in St Louis for the weekend. Friday evening and the place was busy and very noisy. Our server was great. Knew the menu and recommended the pizza. My wife had a pasta, she said it was good, but not great. I had a pizza, I would give it 4.5 of 5.0. The meats made it a little greasy, but it was still very good.
For beer, they claimed 53 on tap, over 150 bottles. My choices there was an Arrogant Bastard and an Urban Chestnut STLIPA. Each served in appropriate glassware.
All of this in a family friendly atmosphere, and well-patronized by locals. I will return.

Cicero's is a great place if you love craft beer. It's also a great place for happy hour. A group of us from work went there recently and had a great time. Me being the beer geek of the group, well, to the say the least, I was a bit giddy at the selection!
They had around 40-50 taps and had an excellent variety. Stone, Southern Tier, new local breweries like Urban Chestnut, Founders, etc.. a great selection. I would have to assume they had at least 150-200 bottles in their selection as well. I really liked the fact that the bartender would let you sample anything before you ordered it. A great place for the beer lover!
I only partaked in the appetizers since we were there for happy hour and everything was really good and 1/2 price. Wings, mushrooms, the salmon roll, etc.. all good. Some friends got burgers and said they were great.
Service was so-so. At the bar it was great, and if you actually sit in the restaurant or outside it's great. But there is a section of the 'bar' down by the pool tables that had big tables we could push together - they didn't have any wait service down there. You had to go up to the bar and order drinks. Was kind of strange.
But other than that, this place is great. We'll just sit somewhere else next time. I would definitely recommend Cicero's - especially if you are a craft beer lover.

The Loop is a fun area of town and this is toward the western end of it. I went to plenty of shows there in college before the big fire, and it’s a totally different-looking place now. Instead of a smoky, low-lit, neon-decorated place, the new Cicero’s is bright, clean, and decorated with art. The clientele hasn’t changed, which is good. The music venue is still there. The food is decent, with great St. Louis style pizza, huge salads, and a lot of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers, entrees, and pasta dishes. Probably over 100 bottles, with a wide range of styles and places represented. The 40-50 taps also represent a wide range of styles and local, regional, national, and international brews. The list is huge, even if they don't get the most exciting stuff around, so you can pretty much always find something new. I’ll keep coming back here.

I'm a big fan of Cicero's and have been coming here since the first week that I moved to St. Louis. Their draft and bottle list is impressive, their food is pretty good, and their prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is welcoming as well. I always look forward to coming to Cicero's and really enjoy attending Beer School each Wednesday night. If you're coming to St. Louis it's definitely worth checking out. Beer School is a weekly event during the "school year" (August - April) when various brewers and distributors from across the US come in and have the students sample 3 or 4 beers for free. There's even a graduation ceremony at the end of each semester!

A & F - Don't let the Italian in the name fool you. Ciceros is half restaurant (with a lot more than Italian food) and half bar. Being that I live pretty close to this place, I usually go here for beer and not the food. However, the food is pretty good - pretty standard restaurant items. This place is a very relaxed bar with a pretty eclectic collection of people, but I guess that is expected being that it is in the Loop.
Q & S - as with most things in life, quantity does not always equal quality. However, I would say there are 10 taps that are usually very interesting compared to 40 or so other taps. They have all sorts of imports, American, and STL brews to choose from. However, some of the taps are pretty uninteresting, however that's to be expected at a place that doesn't necessarily claim to be a beer bar and beer bar only.
Service - Being that I always order from the bar, I cannot speak on the waiting staff. However, the bartenders are always good with a suggestion when you can't make up your mind and they have yet to steer me wrong.
If you are coming from out of town, I would suggest this place over many others just for the sheer amount different tap selections. The food is good, but nothing spectacular. I would suggest maybe going somewhere else in the Loop for food and ending your night at Ciceros.
