Louisa is a family-owned business started more than 55 years ago by Fernando Baldetti, a St. Louis restaurateur with a desire to produce high-quality scratch-made ravioli for local restaurants. His vision of using only fresh ingredients, carefully prepared and skillfully formed, is still at the heart of Louisa today.
Prepared in-house daily, Louisa pastas, appetizers and sauces are carefully crafted to maintain the delicate balance of flavor and texture that makes each recipe its best.
