Riverfront Times's Description
One of the many Italian options on the Hill, Mama Campisi's serves up St. Louis-style classics and, in fact, takes credit for originating one particular St. Louis fave: T-ravs. Legend has it that a chef accidentally dropped a ravioli order in hot oil rather than hot water, and the rest is history. Diners can also choose from Mama's cheese sticks (made with Provel), veal, chicken, fish and steak options, or, for those with healthy appetites, go for Mama's Pasta Challenge. Ambitious eaters feast on a bowl of spaghetti topped with a two-pound meatball. If you finish it, Mama foots the bill for the pasta. Traditional pasta dishes round out the menu.
Tips from foursquare
Gotta get the original toasted ravioli... the first and still the best in STL
Are Mama's t-ravs made from scratch? We can't tell, but they deliver exactly what you expect from toasted ravioli: a crisp exterior and a beeflike filling with the consistency of paste. (Ian Froeb)
The dean martin/frank sinatra impersonator is really annoying and pretty easy to make fun of but food and service are awesome.
It smells great
Awesome chicken spedini (the house special) and toasted raviolis. The food and service was great. Our server was very informative on the menu.
