Fried Ravioli, where to find?

Haven't had these since being in St. Louis and I'm having hard time finding these in L.A. or even the Valley?

Can anybody share spots they love for this tasty appetizer, Toasted Ravioli's?

  1. I would think a chain restaurant like Claimjumper or Cheesecake Factory would have them...

    1. Mastros has fried ravioli as an appetizer. I've had them before and they were pretty good but its the first and only time I've ever eaten fried ravioli. Might be worth a try.

      1. they have them at dan tanas, and as much as i like the spot, theirs suck.

          Goo to know.

          The fried ravioli item on the menu has always been enticing me to order it.

            Apart from cheesy garlic bread which is good w meatballs or with Dabney Coleman later I don't really care for their apps. Veal Karl Malden w Alfredo side or parm/fredo I'm good. Obv room for spumoni/canoli

          1. These are a St. Louis specialty, unadorned uncooked ravioli (usually beef, sometimes cheese) breaded and deep-fried. They are called "toasted ravioli," and the marinara or meat sauce is served alongside for dipping. Very easy to prepare at home if you buy frozen ravioli, bread or batter them, then fry.

            I've seen them on the menu at Enzo's in Westwood Village, but I haven't tried theirs.

            Usually served as an appetizer.
