The Half Fund is working to “illustrate the realities of a cancer diagnosis” via projects such as films, documentaries, books, and even music. The funds raised through the release of these projects will benefit other cancer charities.
Their first project will be “Half,” a film based on creator of The Half Fund Dan Duffy’s experience with testicular cancer. Half of the proceeds from this film will be given to the American Cancer Society, and the other half will be used to provide grants to artists creating projects that provide cancer education.
Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria is very excited to help out this unique organization, especially since Ted’s mother, Nadia, lost her battle with cancer. As always, 100 percent of the profits from any purchase, whether you dine in or carry out from open to close, will be donated. We hope that you’ll come to Rock Hill to join us Tuesday, December 16th! For reservations or questions, please call 314-942-6555, visit us online at www.katiespizzaandpasta.com, or come see us at 9568 Manchester Road, Rock Hill, MO 63119.
We have officially been serving homemade artisan pizza and pastas for one year at our Rock Hill location. Katie and Ted worked hard putting their heart, soul, and every ounce of passion they had into the design, décor, and, of course, menu, but they truly could not have done it without the community’s help. So to celebrate their one-year anniversary, we want to show our appreciation for our wonderful guests who made it all possible.
Starting Monday, December 1 we will provide a different special every day that week until Sunday, December 7. Here’s a glimpse of the anniversary specials:
Monday - Three course tasting dinner with wine pairings for $25
Tuesday - 25 percent off for all Kickstarter Backers (must show ID or certificate) and 10 percent off for all other guests.
Wednesday - Free order of Neapolitan meatballs or toasted ravioli with purchase of entrée. One per table. Dine-in only.
Thursday - Three course tasting dinner with beer pairings for $25
Friday - All draft beers just $3 from open to close.
Saturday - All wines by the glass are just $5 from open to close.

We feel beyond blessed and hope you’ll join us during this special celebration! For reservations or questions, please visit our website http://katiespizzaandpasta.com/, call 314-942-6555, or stop by 9568 Manchester Road, Rock Hill, MO 63119.
We like to consider our menu a constant work in progress. We love to experiment and never want to get complacent when it comes to food. This provides our guests with exciting, new, and authentic Italian dishes.
We have recently added Tuscan mussels served in a spicy tomato brood and a charcuterie platter that pairs cured meats and cheeses to the Small Plates menu.
We’ve added two new options to our Burrata plates - a warm olive, sundried tomato, and caper apenade and the heirloom radish and shallot agrodolce.
The salad menu also got an update to include a red and yellow beet salad. If you want a hearty salad, try our new egg and guanciale salad, which starts with a bed of dandelion greens, frisee, crispy guanciale, shaved pecorino, ciabatta crostini, topped with a fried egg and drizzled with goat cheese vinaigrette. For the lunch crowd, we’ve added the porchetta panino (you can read more about that further down).
We’ve thrown in a few new pizzas to the mix as well:
Tapenade Pizza: sundried tomato, olive & caper tapenade, smoked mozzarella, parmigiano, and radicchio.
Corn Pizza with EVOO: roasted corn, zucchini carpaccio, goat cheese, pecorino, honey, mint, balsamic, and Serrano peppers.
Porcini & Truffle Pizza: made with EVOO, porcini, mixed forest mushrooms, fresh ricotta, ricotta salata, truffle oil, and thyme.
Wood Roasted Chicken Pizza (got a makeover!): made with roasted garlic, roasted herb chicken, dandelion greens, caramelized shallots, smoked mozzarella, and gorgonzola.
Finally, for those that love to brunch, our new items include the fried egg panino with fingerling potato hash, a variety of frittatas including heirloom tomato & ricotta, forest mushroom, swiss chard & tellegio, or prosciutto, asparagus and fontina and a fingerling potato and egg pizza topped with speck, onion, rosemary, fresh mozzarella and parmigiano.

Let us introduce you to the sandwich of all sandwiches: The Porchetta Panino. This famous Roman sandwich starts with porchetta (Italian for a boneless pork roast), which consists of pork loin and belly rolled with herbs, roasted, and then sliced. It is served on homemade ciabatta and then topped with a caper mustard, parsley, salsa verde, fresh arugula, and extra virgin olive oil for good measure.
We are so happy to bring this authentic Italian dish to Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria -- available during lunch only. If you’d like more information or to make reservations, please visit http://katiespizzaandpasta.com/ or call 314-942-6555.
Katie’s Pizza & Pasta’s Give Back Tuesday initiative started this past August and has really taken off. Thanks to our generous customers, we have been able to raise more than $9,000 for local non-profits!! Up this month is the Wyman Center. You can help our area youth and the great St. Louis community by dining at Katie’s Pizza & Pasta on Tuesday, November 25. Any purchase made from open to close (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.), dine in, carry out, drinks, everything; 100 percent of the profits will be donated to Wyman Center.
The Wyman Center has been actively working with the area’s youth since 1898. That’s 115+ years of investing in our youth to help better not only their future, but also the future of the community in which they live! While this St. Louis organization originally formed to provide children living in sweltering tenements with fresh air, good food, and healthy outdoor activities, they narrowed their focus to education in 2000.
The Wyman Center now works with underprivileged youth between the ages of 11 and 18 and provides them with long-term, outcome-based programs to help teens find meaning and purpose, develop healthy lifestyles, and then share their success with their communities. In fact, Wyman’s Teen Outreach Program promotes the positive development of adolescents – reducing the risk of problem behavior while developing healthy behaviors, life skills, and a sense of purpose in participants.
In a 12-year study of the program, participants in Wyman’s TOP® show:
52% lower risk of school suspension
60% lower risk of course failure
53% lower risk of pregnancy
60% lower risk of school dropout
