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.

There is nothing homemade unless it came from can or a freezer. The food is gross and since it is a summer tourist place, they don't give a sh*t if you come back or not.

We had our dinner at the Ravioli House last Sunday of Sept. after seeing it in the hardbound "tourist" Wildwood book in our hotel. We called the place but the restaurant did not accept any reservation. The place was simply nice with an Italian decor, quite large and not that busy. We did not wait at all and we were... More

Hubby & I decided to give the Ravioli House a try. I always heard great things and saw the long waits. We were off season on a Thursday evening - no wait. So great time for us. Hubby ordered Lobster Ravioli. There were these 5 hard, thin red pieces of something on top of the Ravioli. We guessed it was... More

I have been to the Ravioli House many times over the years when we have been in Wildwood. It has to be our favorite restaurant there. You will have to wait but we never waited more than 20 minutes. We went one summer about 7:30 PM, and we got right in. The food is very fresh and all the pastas... More

I refuse to wait on a line for food. Unless it's a restaurant I know is worth it. For as far back as I can remember, the Ravioli House was an exception. Since I was a child, I remember sitting outside the RH with my family waiting to get in so I could devour those sauce/gravy smothered pastas. The antipasto... More
