Where do I purchase Angel Hair Pasta in Toronto

Dannie Nov 8, 2006 12:00 AM

I've gone absolutely everywhere looking for Angel Hair Pasta and cannot find this at the SuperCentre or at Loblaws?

BestBuy and Dominion have Spagetatini, but it's not as small as Angel Hair, even their Vermicilli looks insanely ridiculous!

Anybody know where I can purchase this?

    Try your local italian bakery.

      most supermarkets carry angel hair pasta.
      When I need a supply I head over to Lady York on Dufferin, as they have the best selection of imported Italian pastas in the city.

        I agree - you should be able to find it any grocery store, specialty food shop or Italian deli. It's typically sold under the name "cappelini".

          I have also found angel hair pasta in many places. Having said that, I don't know where you live, but there is a great Italian grocery store that sells many different pastas (as well as other great stuff) and some that are not found other places - it is on the Danforth, east of Jones on the north side - I think it is called Marcelli's - eeek, I have moved out of TO and cannot confirm the name from here. There is a great selection and the owners are very nice. You will definitely find angel hair pasta there as well as many other beautiful pastas.

            it's pretty easy to find. splendido by president's choice (my favorite grocery brand pasta) has one. it's called capelli d' angelo.

              I find it in almost every grocery store I go into. I don't know what the problem is. Have you asked someone who works there??
