If, like many of us, you are suffering Traverso withdrawals, we have a bit of help. The raviolis that Traverso's carried, so popular during the winter holidays, are available at Bill and Deb's Downtown Deli (621 Fourth St., Santa Rosa, 636-2200).
Currently, the deli has beef raviolis for $5.99 a box, Traverso's price. They are also selling the Bolognese sauce that many customers serve with the ravs; it's $5.99 for a 12-ounce container.
The popular cheese raviolis will be in stock as of next week. Bill and Mary Traverso have a standing order.
Bill Thompson worked at Traverso's for 10 years. Debbie Schulze was at the beloved market for six years before it closed last November.
