Guido's Pizzeria & Tapas 5046 Shaw Ave, 314-771-4900. The Carretero family brings a little bit of Spain to the heart of St. Louis Italian country. Have a glass of sangr�a and feast on a big plate of paella, or nosh on several of the excellent, authentic hot and cold tapas: a platter of Serrano ham, chorizo and manchego cheese; croquetas; tender alb�ndigas (meatballs) in a buttery, garlicky white-wine broth; calamari; mussels; and many more. Those wanting a more traditional Hill experience will find satisfying, affordable pasta dishes and one of the better versions of St. Louis-style pizza (Provel optional). A great value, and a terrific place for families: Everyone will find something they like — and maybe something to try for the first time.
