The Hill, known as “America’s other Little Italy,” contains meticulously-maintained homes, Italian grocers, bars, and some of the most famous restaurants in St. Louis. Touting the best Italian in town, the neighborhood is not only called The Hill, it sits on one.

The Hill is known for its manicured lawns and charming homes. While some homes pre-date the turn of the century, the area development was not completed until the 1960s.

The neighborhood association, Hill 2000, maintains the integrity of The Hill. The association makes improvements to the neighborhood, as well as organizing charitable activities within the community.   


Northern Italians and Sicilians immigrated and settled here in the late 19th century, finding work in the clay mines. Baseball legends Joe Gargiola and Lawrence “Yogi” Berra have called The Hill home. 


The Hill is near major interstates, 64 and 44, for easy access into the city. Off of Kingshighway, it neighbors the Central West End and Tower Grove communities.


A large majority of the residents are Italian Americans, making up 3/4 of the population. The neighborhood also has strong ties to the Catholic Church.


If you like meatballs, pizza, and tiramisu, you’re in the right neighborhood. But there’s more to The Hill than Italian food. You can take a guided tour to learn more about the history of its roots, or venture out to the Science Center or Botanical Gardens nearby.

For a night out, visit the eclectic Grove, just streets away.


The Hill is a part of the St. Louis City School District. Since its founding in 1908, families have been sending their children to parish elementary, St. Ambrose School, servicing prekindergarten through 8th grade.
