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've dined at the Ravioli House for years and years. . . My grandparents used to take me there when I was still in diapers (so they told me). When I started vacationing on my own in Wildwood it was always a no-brainer that I would visit. I have literally watched members of the DeSanctis family grow up over the... More

I'm pointing this at the owners because they clearly don't have a chef. They are shameful for cashing in on the beach visitors but that's all they'll get, they won't be back based on the food we had last night. We were a party of six so there was plenty to rate them on. Home made pasta...why bother it was... More

It was my only chance to go out to a nice dinner on my vacation and we picked the ravioili house. My boyfriend's chicken parm tasted like the sauce was from a ragu jar. My own mothers sauce is even made homemade. I ordered the shrimp scampi which tasted like it was dipped in butter, no flavor what so ever.... More

All the years of going to wildwood, and this was our first visit to The Ravioli House. There is a parking lot across the street from them. It was a little early, so we didn't have to wait to be seated. The waitress was very kind, friendly, informative, and prompt. The seafood alfredo was fantastic! At first it didn't seem... More

Went to dinner with my husband and daughter...food is so delicious! No wait...but there was one when we left. Service was great, the only thing is it's kind of small but well worth it.

The homemade pasta is delicious! We like the vodka sauce the best. They also have an Italian bakery on the side of the building. You need to get there early because it does get crowded between 5:30-8 pm. Opens at 4 pm which is a little early for dinner but the food is so good. We go there whenever we... More

Had dinner at the Ravioli House while visiting Wildwood Crest. Food was very good and tasty. Only had to wait approximately 15 minutes for a table. I especially liked the red sauce. Portions were large.

This was our third annual visit during our vacation. Lobster ravioli is too due for! We ordered assorted appetizer for our group of 12 and everyone loved it. Service was attentive. Just disappointed they ran out of Italian sausage. Absolutely don't miss their bakery in back with fabulous desserts and pasta to take home to prepare.

Great food at reasonable prices. Went on a recommendation from a friend and have been going back for years. Service is prompt and pleasant. They offer a big takeout department and have off street parking available.
