We met with the owner this past week of Talayna’s Italian Restaurant, Mehdi Rouhani, and he is truly a professional restaurateur.
St Louis Restaurants – I’ve been visiting Faraci Pizza since the late 80’s and it is the same quality today as it was back then. If anything has changed it has only been for the better. This pizzeria dates back to 1968 and is reported to be one of the oldest family owned pizzeria’s in St Louis.
The son’s run the business now, Vince and Pete and they are there everyday for every meal and every pizza. I have never been there and not seen Vince standing at the end of the oven waiting to see if the pizza’s are made to his high standard. If he knows you, he will acknowledge you and offer his appreciation when you leave.
Their ingredients are the best and cleanliness is at it’s highest standard. Our opinion of Faraci Pizza is beyond the scope of this review, but don’t take our word for it. Consider this: Faraci Pizza Facebook has been visited more than 415 times with 2801 “Likes,” giving it a 5 star out of a 5 star rating. You can’t get any better than being the best. Urbanspoon gives it a 94%, which I am not sure how that can be because I only read one negative review. It is difficult to please everybody.
We lean more towards the Facebook rating. Pizza is better than just OK, it is great. The service is great, some of the staff have worked there for years, which says a lot about the quality of the management.
Faraci Pizza is located at 15430 Manchester Rd, Ellisville, MO 63011. Phone is (636) 230-0000. What a great phone number.
We recommend Faraci’s Pizza. We congratulate Vince, Pete and the entire family on a job well done of making so many people happy. Few St Louis restaurants accomplish what Faraci Pizza has and they continue to move forward.
Mr. Rouhani is kind, professional and knowledgeable about the business and most importantly, puts customer satisfaction as a high priority. He also owns an offsite banquet facility named The Four Seasons Winery and part owner of another Italian restaurant, Candicci’s Italian Restaurant & Catering
Talayna’s is clean, service is great and the owner is on the premises pretty much all of the time assuring that the restaurant and the kitchen is ran to his high standards.
Their Facebook is lacks activity on the restaurants part, but having written that, they have been visited more than 1222 times, Liked 236 times and given a 4 out of a 5 star rating. Many restaurants have to create a lot of activity on their Facebook to engage people to “Like” them. That is definately not the case here. Their last post was July 2013. They are not self-promoters. That says a lot about customer satisfaction at Talayna’s Italian Restaurant.
We recommend that you visit this dining establishment. They are well known for their unique cuisines from around the world, specifically, the Mediterranean and Italy.

DATE OF REVIEW: March 8, 2014
