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.

My review is based strictly on pre-service... I had eaten here about 3 or 4 years ago and the food was EXCELLENT. It was an older couple who ran the place and treated it like their kitchen. As I'm told, the man has apparently passed and his wife isn't doing the cooking any longer without her husband. We TRIED to... More

Had dinner during our trip in wildwood. Home made pasta (especially the spinach ravioli) was extremely fresh. Best ravioli I've had in some years. Service was friendy and there is a children's menu as well. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This place was recommended by a good friend and it was worth going to. Great food and big portions. It was pretty crowded but the service was still pretty fast and friendly. You definitely have to stop in at the attached bakery after your meal. We would eat here again for sure.

We had a restaurant.com certificate here so we got a great value. Very fresh, homemade pasta. I would reccommend the Tour/Taste (something like that) of Italy. Our waitress was OK but seemed less than enthused to be there.

The decor is significantly outdated. The food is average, but overpriced. Much better Italian restaurant choices in wildwood.
