Best Fresh Pasta In New York

Hurner Sep 10, 2005 12:22 PM

Not having the space in my NY apartment for a pasta machine, I'm looking for a store that specializes in fresh pasta, preferably made in-house. I've sampled most of the manufactured products from Dean & Deluca, Whole Foods, Fairway, et al. Any recommendations?

      I agree. And it is cheap too.

          I second Borgatti's. Excellent strand pastas, fresh and their own pasta secca (dried)in whole wheat,Spinach etc. And their Ravioli cannot be matched. My own Italian Grandmother who could make her own and hers were great, said of Borgatti's that she felt they were better than hers!! Much as I hate to admit it, she was right.

              Borgatti's strand pasta and ravioli is fantastic no doubt but try the cavatelli too. For all you Manhattanites seeking pasta heaven Borgatti's is worth the trip to the Bronx. Every order is cut to order so you can have any width pasta you want every time.

          I like Piemonte in Little Italy (Manhattan). And as a bonus, it's on the same block as the divine DiPalo's. Yum ...

            addendum: also The Ravioli Store, on Sullivan Street, next door to Sullivan Street Bakery. AMAZING!

            Borgatti's wins hands down. Their spinach and plain pasta is freshly rolled and cut, not the dried pasta like everyone else. Their ravioli is the real deal. I'd dare someone to find better. And grandma still works the counter.

            Fresh pasta is worlds apart in texture and taste.

              This is the line for Borgatti's (5th store from the corner) right after they opened at 9am on Dec. 23rd...it's like this before Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It breaks into 2 lines once inside the store...one for fresh pasta and the other for ravioli. Definitely worth the wait.

                This is really a no brainer if there is a better place to buy pasta then Borgatti's why would people drive fron Ct. N.J. and the 5 brough and waite in line for an hour or more? woulden't they just go there.

                  If you would like to take the train to Brooklyn you must try Pasta Fresca on 64th street and 11th Ave - only two blocks from the N train! Another great pasta place is Pastoza on 75th and New Utrecht Ave. Its right below train tracks - I think the D or B, but not sure. Both places make very fresh pasta.
