        Have you tried the pumpkin ravioli after the passing of the eponymous Baldi?

          Yes. As good, perhaps better, than ever.
          Giorgio was a close friend of mine, I miss him every day. However, I do not miss his food because "his" food is better than ever at his restaurant as well as his son's place e. baldi. He was never the main chef – he was a good cook in his day, but he was neither the architect of the menu nor the pounder of the pasta -- that was always his wife Roberta and, later, his son Eduardo. They have introduced quite a few new dishes at GB's lately...particularly a truly amazing lobster salad.

        Fritto Misto in Santa Monica. Technically, what they have is butternut squash ravioli, but it's WONDERFUL! Make sure to have the Misto salad, too!

          I like the ravioli di zucca at Colori Kitchen

            Kabocha stuffed at Cube for the grown up, restrained version. Pumpkin ravioli at Allora Cucina for the addictive, sweet w/ walnut cream version. (I wouldn't recommend much else there, frankly.)

              How is the version at Cube? That's served up, that it is grown-up that you speak of?

              thanks.

                Simple, that's all - just served in a brown butter-sage sauce with a dry goat cheese grated lightly over the top. It's not super sweet, but the one at Allora is, and also has a ridiculously over the top walnut cream sauce on it.

              A dear friend swears by the offering at Il Moro.

                My 2 cents - I have never had anything at Il Moro worth going back for.

                  Ok, it's settled, I'm going to hit up Giorgio Baldi for my pumpkin ravioli fix, as well as a classic of wine, and maybe a bresaolo with arugula appetizer and tiramisu and chocolate mousse for dessert.

                  And maybe Gio Cucina, which I just remembered, that no one ever seemes to mention.

                  Has anyone been to Gio Cucina Neapoletena in Encino recently for any of their dishes?
                  what do you guys think?

                    Drago has a good pumpkin tortelloni. Very rich, but tasty.

                      My daughter and my mother both loved the pumpkin ravioli at Campanile last week. Me, I'm not a fan of the The Great Pumpkin, but enjoyed talking with the very friendly Mark Peel about his Top Chef adventures. (And it was doubly exciting for the out-of-towner, small-town dweller at our table! They watch a lot of Bravo in those teeny towns that dot America!!)
