This place is always closed when I walk by, but I finally made my way to Savino’s during open hours. Couldn’t wait to try them. I’ve heard the raviolis are cheap, fresh and good.
I asked the lady for a box of 30 Cheese Raviolis ($5.25). She told me to grab it out of the the freezer myself. Then I asked how she cooks it, with some salt and olive oil or with marinara sauce? She looked at me stupid and said, “No, you boil them!” I knew that. I meant how she prepared them. I asked a container of their homemade marinara sauce ($4). That’s what I get for walking in with Rusty after a few mini vodka bottles. We probably weren’t the kind of customers she was accustomed to.
The raviolis were really fresh and restaurant quality. I’m not a fan of the marinara sauce though. A little watery. But at the same time, I can see how it tastes like homemade Italian sauce. It’s good in that sense.
