Finding the complexity in the simple.

Pronounced : AH’-chair-oh.

Acero is an Italian restaurant located in Maplewood, Missouri. Fittingly, the word Acero means “maple” in Italian. Acero was founded in 2007, and has received acclaim since its inception. Last year, Acero was voted one of the top three Italian restaurants in St. Louis by Sauce Magazine.  Zagat gave Acero “Very Good to Excellent” scores across the board.  Acero has been featured in many magazines including Bon Appetit. You’ll also have a hard time not salivating when you see pictures and reviews of our famous Egg Raviolo. Ladue News described it well… “a gorgeous egg yolk the color of a Tuscan sunset ensconced in a delicate pasta and resting in a rich sauce.” At Acero, we love serving amazing dishes, and believe that you should be able to relax in a comfortable atmosphere while enjoying authentic Italian cuisine paired with the perfect wine.


The much loved Egg Raviolo. Trust us. It’s molto buono.

“I want Acero to be recognized as an ‘artisan’ restaurant, a place that embraces the Italian artisans, the guys who…have elevated our palates and now our expectations.” – Jimmy
