Probably not  
So, is the singular of "ravioli" "raviolus"?

(I suspect not; if there is a singular at all, I suspect it's "raviolo". But the above sentence is what flickered through my head as I was perusing the buffet at the Bellagio Monday night. On someone else's dime *grin*.)

It wouldn't be raviola?

No, the plural of a Latinate word ending in -a is -ae. Alumna, alumnae; mensa, mensae; etc.

Since it's an Italian word, and not Latin, it's raviolo, which means "little turnip." Rava (Latin rapa) is the Italian word for turnip.

Yeah, I kind of figured that, once I thought about it.

I thought it was "raviol". But it might be "raviolo".
