Paolo’s Ravioli Deli & Café, Santa Rosa

As you might expect, ravioli are the specialty here and they're housemade. A dozen, cooked, with sauce runs $5.50, and the lunch special with a side salad and bread is only six bits more.

Recently I tried a mixed dozen, half cheese ravioli and half chicken/spinach ravioli, to go. They’re cooked to order, not held on a steam table, and topped with a decent ground beef red sauce and Kraft-type parm. The cheese ravioli were too bland, and needed a more potent sauce to give them some character. In contrast, the chicken ravioli were finely spiced with a creamed spinach filling, nutmeg and more flavor interest. The skins on both were particularly thin and tender. While I think Genova ravioli are tastier, the texture of the pasta wrappers and filling here is more appealing. This was a nice workaday lunch.
