Boogie Down Bites: Borgatti's Ravioli & Egg Noodles
A family owned ravioli shop in the Bronx has seen 80 years of success through three generations.
Borgatti's Ravioli & Egg Noodles first opened on 187th Street in 1935.
The little shop quickly became known for its handmade egg noodle pasta.
The original owners passed the business on to one of their sons, Mario, who passed the business on to his son Chris who is currently in control.
Three generations later, the Borgatti's are churning out fresh ravioli filled with ricotta, spinach, meat, mushrooms and even pumpkin.
Owner Chris Borgatti inherited the business from his father who died at the age of 96 in 2015.
He says he even uses the original pasta cutting machine that has been inside of the store since the 1930s.
