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.

First the good -- antipasto, service, gnocchis were all phenomenal. Sadly, they topped it all using a very bitter sauce (they just reduced tomato spice without adding any spices). The pasta was probably homemade (appearance would indicate such). Better sauce would give this place a few more stars.

My son asked for something not on the menu which they were more than happy to make (he asked for fettucini alfredo with chicken and broccoli). I ordered pasta-a bit of everything. My husband ordered eggplant parmigiana. They serve beer and wine so we enjoyed with wine.... More

The food here was horrible! The pasta was wet and soggy! The bread was stale! The meatballs, well let's just say, we could not eat them! We were totally disappointed and will never return to this restaurant!

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.
