1997 Best Pasta


This Italian specialty shop routinely stocks the finest and freshest selection of fresh pasta. Four or five daily flavors can be cut to order, and the freezer cases hold homemade tortellini filled with chicken, pesto, pumpkin, or roasted garlic, as well as a variety of sauces and oven-ready hors d’oeuvres. Also look for for the barrels of dry pasta in every shape and form, and don’t miss the huge deli selection.
