Where To Get Ravioli near Roosevelt Island on National Ravioli Day

March 19, 2021

As we all know, March is still a chilly one here near Roosevelt Island, but for foodies, that means one thing – comfort food! There’s no comfort food quite like ravioli, and on March 20 on National Ravioli Day, you can indulge in your favorite cheese, lobster or mushroom ravioli at one of the many top-notch Italian restaurants.

This month, celebrate National Ravioli Day with a bite of some of the Roosevelt Island area’s best – all without the guilt. Plus, all of these restaurants offer takeout or delivery, so enjoy a ravioli dish in the comfort of your Octagon apartment if you prefer!

Arturo’s, located at 1617 York Ave, New York which is 16 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is an old-school Yorkville Italian restaurant serving classic red-sauce fare since 1982.

Chef and owner Joseph Napolitano, who took over the business started by and named after his father, is proud to offer a delicious dining experience. The food at Arturo’s has hints of influence from the old Italian neighborhoods in New York City and traditions that are long forgotten by many of today’s more trendy Italian eateries.

Zucchero e Pomodori, located at 1435 2nd Ave, New York which is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a classic Italian brick-walled cafe serving pastas and more, with plenty of outdoor seating during warmer weather.

Since opening their doors in 1991, Zucchero E Pomodori has provided the area with quality Italian food in a unique dining experience at a modest price. Their founder believed that the love for food is our common language. That language is spoken here everyday – especially since they have used the same recipes since day one.
