Came for the Narrow Gauge crowlers on a Saturday morning, but the food was well worth the visit. When the staff recommends the stuffed meatballs, take the advice. There were only 8-9 NG brews on tap, but there's also an extensive guest tap list. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Spent some time here on the Narrow Gauge half of the establishment. Each half has a different vibe. Cugino's is a little divey while the brewery half looks like a modern/rustic taproom. The Narrow Gauge brews were fantastic. I didn't try any of the others. The service was friendly and helpful. I did not try any food.

This is the home of Narrow Gauge Brewing which is how I wound up at Cugino's. I was after beer, but as it turns out the food is wonderful. It looked like the menu leaned more towards pub food than Italian. Wife had pizza, I had one of the burgers piled high with good stuff...they have several premium burgers to choose from.

The beer was fantastic. The Narrow Gauge beers were wonderful. One of the other reviews below mentioned that this is a "must hit place". I agree. Most of the NG beer were American/IPA. I had the Fallen Flag, OJ and Hoppy Meal. I only have ten fingers, so I lost count of the *quality* local/national taps. They had Founder's Breakfast Stout! An outstanding selection that would make a beer geek smile even without the NG offerings.

The vibe...nothing wrong with the surroundings. They have a huge neon Bud sign behind the bar that I don't see very often. It's made to look "old style". It really didn't bother me. It was probably there before they got into the craft brew. As you probably already know, AB has a long history in St. Louis. Lots of lighted craft beer signs all around. Why the 4.5 "Vibe" rating? I was served the (Narrow Gauge) beer on Bud Light coasters. That gave me a bad vibe. Some people may not feel the way I do about that but I sure do!

If you come to the St. Louis area, be sure to work this place in your schedule. A must hit!!

Unassuming generic looking Italian restaurant from the outside. Inside there is a great bar area with a cool dive bar vibe. Their tap list is incredible - great and expansive selection (roughly 30 taps) with quality choices. Lots of local beers and national craft options. Also, this is the home of Narrow Gauge Brewing which is turning out some absolutely incredible NE style IPAs. If you are in St. Louis this is a must hit location both for the variety of local options and Narrow Gauge. Service is outstanding as everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and loves beer. Also, the food is pretty good.

If you are in St. Louis Missouri you need to drop by Cuginos Italian Restaurant. Cuginos is the home of Narrow Gauge Brewing Company. Alongside the 40 + beers they have on tap they also have there own amazing brews. If you like Northeast style IPA's you are going to love head brewer Jeff Hardesty's creations. They also have a remarkably good APA and two equally delicious porters. If that doesn't get you in the door the food will. They recently revamped their menu and everything on it is fantastic.Their very knowledgeable owners Ben and Dave alongside their amazing staff will surely impress you. Come to Cuginos and enjoy a Fantastic meal along side a Fantastic beer.

Collleen is fantastic. Taps are great. Beer Cellar is better. Make sure to ask for beer cellar menu!
