The people have spoken: Rigazzi's (4945 Daggett Avenue; 314-772-4900) has the most overrated toasted ravioli in St. Louis. The supposed oldest restaurant on The Hill was voted the most overrated Italian restaurant in St. Louis last year, too. Yikes!
Rigazzi's beat out Mama Campisi's (which claims to have invented the legendary t-rav), Mangia Italiano and Lombardo's. Imo's was the most (least?) popular write-in option.
The classic Italian restaurant opened in 1957 and suffered a devastating fire back in 2000 -- police suspected arson but never solved the case.
