Sandwiches were huge and bread was delicious. My 15 year old daughter didn't like the ravioli but everyone else at the table enjoyed it for... More

Great place on south B Street for early meals if need be.They have quite a menu but you can customize your choice to your liking. Portions are huge. Ravioli can be eaten here or purchased refrigerator cold and heated at home. My favorite is chicken with housemade pesto. Staff is very helpful in assisting with your choice with other suggestions.... More

I was 9 then and I used to get my sandwich on my way to school. This is my school cafeteria and yes I know I'm spoiled. It's 30 years... More

Excellent homemade ravioli! We tried both the meat sauce and pesto and two kinds of ravioli, all were as good as some we have had in Italy. Portions are large and staff is very nice. Sit down table space is limited, it was very warm the day we visited and there is no AC, but that should not be a... More

Remember that whole thing about doing what you do well? The Ravioli House offers excellent homemade ravioli with a variety of fillings and sauce in clean modest shop. Highly recommend the Spicy Sicilian ravioli with a marinara sauce. But man (and woman) does not live by ravioli alone. The deli sandwiches are as delicious as they are creative (meatloaf with...

They smoke many of their own meats in back! My personal fave is a hot pastrami with cheddar cheese on sliced sourdough with avocado and the jalapeno garlic sauce. Jalapeno garlic sauce is mandatory on any sandwich! Ravioli is excellent too. I usually buy it cold to cook at home.

We wanted a good lunch that was quick and we were very pleased. My wife had a hot turkey sandwich and I had an Italian chicken sandwich. Both were good and we had leftovers.

Stopped here for lunch. I ordered a meatball sandwich which was terrific and my cousin ordered a meatloaf sandwich which thoroughly enjoyed. This place has been here forever and good food is the reason why!
