Is Ravioli Italian? 

Yes, ravioli is Italian! Its history has been traced all the way back to the Tuscan city of Prato in the 1300s. In Rome, the Pope was eating ravioli as early as 1549. Even though ravioli is Italian, there are varieties around the world, since just about every culture has a filled dumpling: Jewish kreplach, wontons in China, and sweet fruit-filled gujiya in India are the multicultural cousins of Italian ravioli. The U.S. even has their own twists on ravioli, like the canned version many of us remember from childhood that was invented in Cleveland’s Little Italy a century ago. On our menu you’ll even find toasted ravioli, a breadcrumb-crusted fried version of the pasta served with marinara for dipping. It originated down in St. Louis in the 1950s.

At Salerno’s Pizza near Romeoville, our ravioli is rooted in Italian tradition. It’s never frozen or from a can because we make it by hand in our restaurants. You’ll find it among our House Specialities. Choose from ricotta cheese-filled, meat-filled, or a combination of both types of ravioli, then top it with any of these recommended sauces: 

  • Marinara
  • Meat sauce
  • Aglio olio (garlic and olive oil)

  • Arrabiata
  • Vodka sauce
