Italian "crepes"

We were on trip of lifetime to Italy and our guide took us to the DaCostantino Restaurant on Amalfi coast. We ate the most divine creation called 3 cheese crepes. I saw them in a long roll (about 1- 2 inches wide and 15 inches long. Cheese inside a roll of something that I assumed to be pasta dough? The log was then sliced into 1/2 inch slices, dabbed with a bit of butter and lightly sprinkled with parmesean cheese. The next time I saw them was sliced and served on a platter. Anyone else ever thad this wonderful dish? Do you think it was pasta dough? Would I need to bake it for a bit? There was no sauce so don't know how it would keep from drying out. Or maybe it really was crepe batter rather than pasta dough. they also serve pizza so I'm guessing it was just a very quick final visit to the extremely hot pizza oven that browned the parm cheese slighlty. But I'm thinking it must have cooked at least once before that when it was in the log form? Anyone ever tried anything like this?
