Louisa rolled lasagna

The Louisa Way

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. Focused on fresh ingredients crafted by skilled artisans, his belief that Freshness Matters is still at the heart of Louisa today.

  • Grind and dice meats ourselves
  • Hand chop the vegetables and zest the lemons
