When my family and I ordered our first meal from Archie’s Italian Eatery (1410 E. Republic Road, Springfield, 417-720-1763), we ordered a few of our go-to dishes including spaghetti and meatballs for my carb-and-beef obsessed kids. But I kept returning to two of the menu’s appetizers as I tried to figure out what to order: an unusual take on bruschetta and a nostalgic indulgence.

First the bruschetta. It was made with both pesto and cream cheese along with the typical tomatoes and a sprinkling of Parmesan, for an uncommon creamy flavor. I’m a sucker for pesto, so I was drawn to that element. As for the nostalgic treat, it was gooey cheese-filled toasted ravioli that were made from scratch from rolled pasta for that “Yeah, I’m from St. Louis, and this is my jam” flavor. I was mad about the cheesy toasted ravioli and am curious about their other versions too, one filled with beef and the other with lobster.
