About Us

Come Join Us for a Night Out!


Owner Gary Wagner has a special way of making every customer feel like family. His dynamic personality is what many guests have come to love almost as much as the food. At any given time, you can overhear the animated laughs from the bar between the numerous regular patrons and the staff, the staff recalling a guests usual order, a new guest inquiring about the unique history of the restaurant, or the sound of the fork resting on an empty plate and a satisfied guest contently easing into their new spot as a member of this family we call, Concetta’s.

Concetta’s Italian Restaurant has been serving the St. Charles community since 1985. The family house turned piano bar and finally restaurant was built in the late 1800’s, making the dining experience at Concetta’s one of a kind at the corner of Fifth and Pike. The restaurant provides a romantic and cozy atmosphere with two fireplaces located in the bar and back dining area along with many unique décor items, such as historical figurine, decanters, and classic car & train models displayed along the walls.

What makes Concetta’s so special is the service we provide and our famous Arcobasso family recipes that we use to make our homemade sauces, soups, and other Italian specialties. There is sure to be something for everyone on our delicious menu varying from salads with our Arcobasso creamy Italian dressing; pastas; chicken, beef, veal, and seafood entrees; to even homemade desserts!

The interesting décor, sweet aroma of our homemade sauces, and unique atmosphere are just the beginning of your dining experience at Concetta’s. Since opening the famous red door, we have become both the favorite community dining haven and the must stop and check it out restaurant of St. Charles.
