Russo's Ravioli original restaurant

Our Story, Then

I’d like to take you back in time to Newport, KY, where it all began in the 1940's. A time when families sat down and enjoyed each other’s company at the dinner table. Stories were shared, meals were prepared together and of course, no one was staring at the phone! We want to bring families back to that dinner table with our handmade raviolis. We have been pursuing this dream using our family recipes that date back to Fortes Spaghetti House on Monmouth St.

When the restaurant closed, my grandfather began to make them in his home kitchen for friends, family and loyal customers. Like my mom working along side her dad in the restaurant, these are my first memories of ravioli making. My grandfather taught me how to make them and as I grew older, I would help him with deliveries. He shared his stories and I can still hear his voice telling me, “No one is making ravioli like this anymore!” He knew how special and popular they were and had a dream to see these continue on store shelves. He was right; these ravioli have not only sustained the test of time; but have grown in popularity over the last 70 years!

Food and family go hand in hand, especially for Italians! We welcome you to join ours by subscribing to our e-Newsletter so we can keep you up to date on new recipes, availability, pop-up events and the occasional promo code or delicious giveaway! We're grateful for your support 🙏🏻
