First Look: Katie's Pizza & Pasta Osteria at Ballpark Village in downtown St. Louis
Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria’s long-awaited Ballpark Village location opens, Monday, May 22, at 751 Clark Ave. in downtown St. Louis. Covering 10,000 square feet and seating around 390 guests inside and on the patio, this third location of Katie’s is the restaurant’s largest, most ambitious project to date.
Before getting into the many impressive details that have been woven into this restaurant, it’s worth noting how rare it is to see a restaurant of this scale open in 2023. There’s so much to take in, from an open kitchen at the back of the space, to a deli counter, pasta station, bar, private dining room and countless pieces of art throughout. The space is cleverly partitioned, with dining areas at the front and rear of the restaurant separated by a large central bar and a row of booths. The result is a space that retains a degree of intimacy without compromising its ambition.
