Six types of stuffed ravioli include the ravioli Fantasia's tomato-dough morsels, which are stuffed with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach before being drenched in a vodka sauce ($14.95), and stromboli comes stuffed with mozzarella, pepperoni, green peppers, and ham ($5.99). Seventeen varieties of gourmet pizza toss an edible frisbee to appetites, and dough-slingers also charcoal grill 10-inch pies ($8.95–9.95) and stuff two specialty 'zas with either veggies or six types of meat ($20/pie; $3.50/slice).
