Pumpkin or Butternut Squash Ravioli

I have an itch that needs scratchin' now that the cooler weather is here!

I'm seriously craving either pumpkin or butternut squash ravioli. A little brown butter & sage...wow! Nothing says fall like a big plate of it!

I'll be in DC from tomorrow until th 16th. What are your suggestions?

Thanks so much.

  1. Sorry I can't refer you to a restaurant, but I've bought butternut squash ravioli recently at Shopper's - my goodness that's yummy!

    1. You can BUY them at the pasta stand at Eastern Market.

      You might want to call Filomena to see if they have this on their menu at the moment,.

      1. I haven't been since they've reopened but Spezie on L street has pumpkin ravoli that sounds pretty delicious, and the restaurant has been getting pretty good reviews since it reopened.

        From their online menu:

        Tortelli di zucca e amaretti al burro, salvia e parmigiano
        House made ravioli stuffed with roasted pumpkin and amaretto cookies, fresh sage and parmesan sauce

          the amaretto cookies are what make the dish.

          I often make pumpkin ravioli at home and it's just not the same without the crumbled cookies and a little pecorino on top.

        2. I had some great Butternut Squash Ravioli a few years ago at Tosca. Not sure if it's on the current menu but worth checking...

          1112 F Street, Washington, DC 20004

            Please by all means GO to Tosca, which I just tried for the first time on friday. The pastas are top notch and deserts are to die for, you will not go wrong here.

          2. It's take out only, but Vace (in Cleveland Park and Bethesda) sells homemade frozen pasta dishes, and my family always buys their pumpkin agnelloti. They also sell sauces to go with the pastas, such as walnut or marinara. If you don't feel like going out but still have that pumpkin craving ( I know how you feel, I love the taste of fall) then it's always nice to have it in your freezer.

              ooo i will have to check out the agnelloti!

              I have a freezer of pumpkin and sweet cream ravioli that my mom brings me from an Italian Market in philly, and I never think of going to Vace!

            2. A couple of years ago Olives had a great butternet squash ravioli in a brown butter sauce. I have no idea if they still do, but it might be worth a phone call.

              1. The butternut squash ravioli at Kramerbook's Afterwards Cafe is really good!
                Here's their menu: http://www.kramers.com/view.cfm?id=37

                  Pulchinella's (sp?) in McLean often has butternut squash ravioli as a special. It's quite good.

                2. GO TO COPPI'S!!! On U Street. I had the most sublime butternut squash ravioli there a year ago, and I noticed when I was there last night that it's still on the specials menu. It's also a really lovely atmosphere, very cozy bistro.

                  1. I was just looking at Nage's new fall menu and they're offering a Pumpkin and Hazlenut ravioli...

                    1. Sette Bello had a great version (small portion) last year but haven't been recently

                      1. Thanks everyone! I'm staying at M and New Hampshire, I think Spezie is the closest.

                        I'll report back.

                          i'm a little late, but for future reference, a la lucia in old town alexandria serves these through the fall and they were really delicious last year!

                        2. Olives at 1600 Kst. has the best made fresh daily butternut squash
