Jim Fiala loves Italian people, culture and food so much that he wanted to take everything he knew and open a restaurant that would pay homage to the country he loves so much. From the desire to open such a place in St. Louis, in 2007 Acero was born. Located in the heart of Maplewood, fittingly, the word Acero in Italian means maple.
Coming to Acero for a night out is like taking a step out of St. Louis and into Italy. We have used our experiences in Italy to create an atmosphere of people serving people and not the “turn and burn” rushing of diners. We love to serve traditional dishes made from locally-sourced ingredients to create a “Midwestern Italian” menu that is sure to leave you wanting more.
