Toasted Ravioli: A Favorite of "The Lou'

One story tells Chef Terry Hill says he invented the dish at Oldani's restaurant in 1933. The restaurant was located where Mama Campisi's restaurant is now, on the St. Louis Hill at 2132 Edwards Street.

Another story is, in 1947, a chef at Angelo's accidentally dropped the pasta into oil instead of water. The chef who dropped the toasted ravioli was Gina Oldani, the sister of Angelo Oldani, owner of Oldani's and Angelo's restaurants. Charlie Gitto was Angelo's maitre d at the time. He purchased the restaurant after Angelo Oldani's death.
