So which restaurant serves up the best pasta in Missouri?
It only makes sense that the best pasta in Missouri is a St. Louis delicacy! This St. Louis restaurant may not have invented toasted ravioli, but its take on the popular favorite was named the best of the best in the entire state.
Anthonino's Taverna is located at 2225 Macklind Avenue in St. Louis.
Here's what LoveFood had to say about Missouri's best pasta:
"A St. Louis specialty, you'll find toasted ravioli on pretty much all the menus across the city. If you're looking for the best, though, head straight for the cozy, family-run Anthonino's Taverna, which serves a mix of Italian and Greek cuisine. Crispy on the outside and filled with delicious meat inside, the toasted ravioli come with a marinara sauce for dipping too."
