We are happy to be located on The Hill, regarded as the largest, most intact Italian neighborhood in the United States. It's one of the most visited neighborhoods in St. Louis.
A visit to The Hill is a trip back in history and a vacation to Italy.
The anchor of The Hill, St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Church, is just south of us.
The Bell Tower is visible from this view. Soapy jaywalks to Milo's Bocce Garden.
The Italian Immigrants sculpture in front of St. Ambrose Church reflects the 100-year history of both Northern and Southern Italians settling here. Many found work in the brickyards and clay pits nearby.
St. Ambrose Parish began in 1903, and built this captivating church in 1926.
Every Italian town has its piazza. Across the street from the church, you'll find Piazza Imo. Relax, meet friends, play a game of chess. (Photo taken before dogs were not allowed.)
Italia-America Bocce Club is for members only but when there's a big tournament, go see some talented bowlers. Or join a league.
Kitty-corner to the church, you'll find Milo’s Bocce Garden. The lively bar and restaurant has been a tavern since 1902. Try your hand at a game of bocce.
