I understand your point about the sophisticated palate comment, but if everyone in the cast was really shocked by the raviolo with the egg yolk in it (Uova da Raviolo), it does signal that they may not have the breadth of food experiences one might expect of "celebrity" diners. Not only is it a rather famous dish from Italy, but it also has become fairly trendy at a number of high-end restaurants. In LA, for instance, it is one of the best-known dishes on the menu at Mario Batali's restaurant, Osteria Mozza, and it also is on the menu at the revamped Spago. I suspect the chefs assumed that TV actors probably eat all the time at restaurants like those, and it came as a shock to hear that the cast was unfamiliar with the dish.
