Description: The Ravioli House is the oldest Italian Restaurant in the City of Wildwood, NJ. In the past 43 years not much has changed at Bennett and New Jersey Avenues in Wildwood. The Ravioli House and Pastry Shop is an Italian family restaurant with a complete take-out service. It is still owned and operated by the DeSanctis family. Antonio and Teresa came to Philadelphia from Italy to live with relatives. Every summer their families would travel to Wildwood to stay with Antonio’s aunt, who owned a building where she made homemade pasta. Teresa loved the idea of owning a restaurant, and in 1970 the Ravioli House opened its doors for the first time.The Ravioli House provides a warm and inviting ambiance with beautiful murals of towns and villages in Italy. Customers enjoy authentic Italian cuisine to the soundtrack of soft Italian music. At the Ravioli House, everything is homemade. It is just like eating in your grandmother’s kitchen. Choose from spaghetti, linguini, fettuccini, angel hair, rigatoni, gnocchi, potato gnocchi, and cavatelli. Then select one of 10 sauces to enjoy a pasta feast just the way you like it. Pasta selections don’t stop here. Try the stuffed shells, manicotti, baked ziti, and ravioli, or try “The Trip Around Italy” for a true taste sensation.

I will never eat here again.....I had dinner there, and then ordered dessert to take home. Found out after the fact that I paid $8 a cannoli. Then I go to the pastry shop to, and found out they are only $4.50. I go back in to talk with the owner, and she was so rude. She told me that... More

Some of the food looked and tasted as though it came in frozen and was popped in the oven to heat it through. Meals served at the same table were inconsistent at best. Linguine on one dish cooked perfectly while another dish had the linguine grossly overcooked with a glue - like texture and taste. That member of our party... More

We were in the process of switching providers and we have found bread that meets our standards. We can assure you that everything else is homemade. The server had been training for three days. Upon leaving, we also ask... More

My family and I love the Ravioli House. Their home made pastas are delicious. We went this past Sunday night and were very disappointed in the slow service. Our waitress was very nice however the kitchen was backed up and even though we were seated within 20 minutes once we were seated our meals took over an hour to arrive.... More

My family and I have enjoyed Ravioli House's authentic Italian meals for years and are constantly amazed/pleased that the food quality and good service remains the same each time we visit. If you have the time, visit the bakery in the back of the building...very delicious pies,cookies and cakes!

Been going here for many years never had a bad meal, a little pricey but worth it especially compared to the other Italian restaurants here. My kids love it as do I!

I had heard about and driven past The Ravioli House for years but never went there. My husband wanted to try it out so we went this past Thursday night. To begin with the prices were really high, I thought, we eat out a lot. You don't get a salad with your meal and my meal was $21! The bread,... More

Very expensive and everything is al la carte. A plate of ravioli and two small meatballs in $20. A bit pricey but nothing special.

You pay extra for the salad, the house Italian dressing is too bitter, they only serve wine and beer for drinks (and the wine is sub par and served in a highball glass) but the main course is to die for! Had the best Linguini Alfredo with Chicken I ever had anywhere, and my wife's pain old Spaghetti and Meatballs... More
