vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 3.5 | $$
Atmosphere - quiet, somewhat, for pub. I was able to walk in, walk up to and sit at the bar. The restaurant seemed like it was fairly packed for a Tuesday night.
Quality - Beers were served in pint glasses, other glasses were available upon request. I had three beers, O'Fallon 5 day (on tap), Leffe Blond (i think, on tap), and a Duvel (bottle). The 5 Day seemed to have been mixed with something, perhaps the lines were not cleaned properly before switching taps.
Service - Good, my barmaid was Sara (i think thats the right spelling), she was new and her first solo night. She did fairly well and kept a sharp eye for empty glasses. The vets that came to back her up later were very sharp and knew theirs beers.
Selection - 200+ beers to choose from. Only drawback was that there was not an up-to-date beer list at the bar. The beer list should be at the bar of all places. I was highly disappointed when they did not carry Rochefort 10 like the old list I had said.
Food - I only ordered a chicken ceaser wrap as I was at the bar. One day I will revise the food rating after I have had a chance ot sit down at a table and order a real meal.
Value - reasonable. pints run from 3.75 to 15 a pop (Rouge XS Impy stout) and local Schalfly is served at 3 bucks a pint on Tuesdays.
If you plan to go, go thirsty. There is free parking behind Cicero's so avoid street parking as it will be sparse.

This is a great place to visit, great selection of draft and bottles. A very diverse crowd, the staff doesn't know much about their beers and parking sucks, otherwise they have good food and music, the pizza is killer.

Went there a few weeks ago. The beer selection is very impressive. Plenty of local choices, american craft brews, imports, quite a few big beers - I had an Arcadia Hopmouth draft and a Lenny's RIPA bomber for a very reasonable price for both. The food menu is a pretty standard 'Italian" menu. Pizza, pastas, sandwiches and a few entrees.
I've been there a few times and their pizza is great. The last time I went, I ordered a pasta dish with canneloni, lasagna, and manicotti. The manicottie and canneloni were decent, but I got to the lasagna, and wtf... they use cottage cheese instead of ricotta in their lasagna?!!? This should never happen. It was edible, but I've made a mental note to never order lasagna from this place again.
What sucked about this place? The only way to get in or out is to walk through the smoking area(s). Half the place is a bar, and the other half is a dining room. The bar as well as the front half of the dining room, where you walk in, is smoking. I don't mind it myself, but we had our 18 month old with us, if we would have had to wait for a table for even 30 seconds in the smoking area, I would have immediately left.
I'll be back to this place for the fantastic beer menu and the pizza, but not without a babysitter. It's off my list as a family dining establishment.

I was able to visit this place on my last trip over to the other side of the state. Cicero's is located on the Old Delmar loop were parking is atrocious. If you don't take a cab, then you might have problems finding a parking spot. We had to drive around this massive parking lot on the backside of the loop for about 15 minutes before we could find a place to park.
The first thing I noticed as I walked in was that smoking was allowed inside the restaurant. I had forgot that St. Louis doesn't have a smoking ban yet. As you walk in, the bar is right to your right, with a couple pool tables, a door that will lead you to where the bands play and several shady looking people. To your left is the Non Smoking section, which looks like a normal little restaurant. Fortunately we were seated at the further most spot from the smoking section which allowed for a very little amount of smoke lingering.
The food was great. We had a pie and their fried pizza bread. Both were excellent, and the pizza was some of the best St. Louis style that I've had the pleasure of trying. The beer was top quality also. They have the standard BMC, but had tons of stuff from Schlafly, Bells, and Boulevard. This place has a really great selection of beer. I had a New Belgium 30 degrees dunklewiezen, which we haven't seen on the other side of the state, a Belhaven Twisted Thistle IPA, and a Bell's Hopslam. All very quality. The pints were a bit cold, but that was my fault for not asking for a warm glass. The only bad thing about my excursion to Cicero's was the waitress. She was borderline rude. She couldn't answer my beer questions (which consisted of "Do you have...on tap still?"), got angry with me when she thought that I was asking the same question twice. She could have been having a bad day, but still. Overall, this was a really good place. I will definitely be making my way back and hoping to have better service the next time.

The Loop is a fun area of town and this is toward the western end of it. I went to plenty of shows there in college before the big fire, and it’s a totally different-looking place now. Instead of a smoky, low-lit, neon-decorated place, the new Cicero’s is bright, clean, and decorated with art. The clientele hasn’t changed, which is good. The music venue is still there. The food is decent, with great St. Louis style pizza, huge salads, and a lot of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers, entrees, and pasta dishes. Probably over 100 bottles, with a wide range of styles and places represented. The 40-50 taps also represent a wide range of styles and local, regional, national, and international brews. The list is huge, even if they don't get the most exciting stuff around, so you can pretty much always find something new. I’ll keep coming back here.

Lets start off by saying that this place is like a grownup Chuck E Cheese or crack. If I never knew about this place or never saw the beer list I would have never walked in. Part resturant, part bar, part night club. Which all you could hear was the shitty music coming from the night club through the whole place. It was an absolute mess, food on the floor and the bathrooms were a war zone.
As for the beer selection, best in the area for sure. The staff was quick and friendly which is a plus for me. The food was a waste of time, we put in a simple pizza order and the order was never put in ... when they finally realized that it was never put through it was well over an hour after we ordered it. I have had better pizza from Domino's as well.
All in all, go here for the selection and friendly staff ...

I've worked down the street from this place pretty much since they opened at their present location, so I guess it's time to put my 2 cents in.
Vibe: College kid. Lotta jam bands play in their admittedly nice music room. A certain uncomfortable je ne se qois dominates throughout the rest of the place, with the dining area resembling a chain restaurant, the bar area short on chairs and the game area basically a sports bar/frat house basement.
Food: Unremarkable. Basic St Louis bland Italian food.
Service: Always friendly, usually knowledgable.
Selection: Huge list, well-chosen, proper glassware, all of it. Recently I had a Van Honsebrouk St Louis Peche on tap there for almost half of what I've paid for it elsewhere. Weekly beer school, throughout most of the year.
Overall, a required stop, as is the neightborhood in general. The Loop's great for people watching, catching a show, grabbing a bite and a coupla beers. Soon there'll be a hotel on the strip so you won't have to worry about driving home.

Cicero's in Saint Louis, MO
