Lombardo's Trattoria (201 South 20th Street; 314-621-0666) Lombardo's ravioli are extra large and crescent-shaped, which makes them stand out from other iterations. They're also thicker than the average raviolo -- a point of doughy pride for Lombardo's -- and topped with grated Romano, as opposed to the more traditional Parmesan.

Mama's on the Hill (2132 Edwards Street; 314-776-3100) Mama's has its own t-rav origin story that goes like this: "In the early 1940s, a chef by the name of Fritz accidentally dropped an order of ravioli into hot oil instead of hot water. Quickly realizing his mistake, the raviolis were removed but not discarded. With some seasoning, everyone agreed that toasted ravioli was a hit and there to stay." OK, so it's pretty much the same as every other invention story. Regardless, Mama's ravioli are crisp and delish.
