The owners of Oak Brook, Ill.-based Ravioli Oli have opened the restaurant's first location created to bridge the gap between authentic, hand-crafted recipes served in a fast, modern and affordable restaurant.

The restaurant was opened six weeks by Jeff Barry.

“I love cooking for people and opening a restaurant in an area that brings people together was really important to me,” Barry said. “Meeting new people, supporting schools, giving back to the community, it’s all part of being a good business resident and a great neighbor.”

The menu at Ravioli Oli features fresh, hand rolled ravioli filled with sautéed veggies, seasoned meats, and artisan cheeses, along with summer salads, meatballs, fried calamari and more. Ravioli-inspired items include Spinach Artichoke Ravioli with Pesto Sauce, Cheese Ravioli with marinara sauce and Portabella Mushroom Ravioli with marinara sauce. 

In addition to its Oli loyalty club, the restaurant also offers Ravioli Making Parties where guests can create their own hand-rolled ravioli. The program is another way Barry and the restaurant's founders can be part of their local community.

“We’re hosting Eat & Earn Nights for local schools, sponsoring park district events, donating DIY ravioli making parties for fundraisers, anything we can do to support our neighbors,” Barry said.
