fresh pasta in brooklyn

Hi everyone! I need to know where to buy fresh pasta in Brooklyn. Can be anywhere, any neighborhood, but I want extremely high quality and a delicious yield. I would love it to be a kind of place with a bit of a story behind it, but I’m open to anything. Help!

  1. On Court street in Carroll Gardens there is Caputos. They have fresh pasta, mozzarella and lots of other good stuff. It's a great place--give it a try!

    1. Pastosa Ravioli

      -7425 New Utrecht Avenue


      -5223 Avenue N

        How do you know about Pastosa on Ave N ? There is one on Crossbay Blvd also.
        There is a pasta co on Willamsburg called Savino's they are on Conselya St.
        Have you tried Casneilli's in Astoria (yum O)
        Also i know of one on 101 ave . Sorry all Queens locations.
        FYI Piemonte Ravioli's are made in Woodside, Queens .Right around the corner from Spicy Mina's

          FAL, re: Pastosa:

          I'm from Brooklyn. Its THE LAW. Of course, it helps that I used to shoot pool on Avenue N, get pizza at Frank's, and drink at Duggan's on Flatbush.

          Agree that Savino is very good. Closed Sundays.

            You know there is also a Pastosa on Staten Island I think it's on Arden Ave.

              Ah, I must admit that I grew up on SI. I'm doing a reverse migration, inching ever closer to 'the city.' I do miss my Saturday morning runs on Ave N for Pastosa and Moretti's. And fresh cannolis from Palermo...

                I LOVE Palermo. My engagement cake was from there. Three layers of cannoli pastry stretched out thin with two different kinds of custard between. HEAVEN!

                  It is not where your from its where your at.

                2. re: MaspethMaven

                  Don't forget to stop at Moretti's for rolls, Alliotta for dessert, and La Torre for everything else! Damn, what memories!

                  Russo's in the slope is a passable substitute, but nothing truly beats Pastosa.

            3. I agree with Caputo's Court between third and 4th place - EXCELLENT

              1. caputo's on court is the business - for real. if you want a restaurant SERVING fresh pasta too, go to FRAGOLE on court. excellent, old world, realdeal italian.

                1. I used to shop in a tiny shop on 7th Ave. off Union Park Slope where they made fresh mozzarella and fresh pasta which was very good-can't remember their name and wonder if they are still there???let me know--they had homemade ravioli stuffed with lobster, pesto,tomato pasta--all very delicious--nice proscutto bread too-

                    I think you mean Fratelli's Ravioli. I believe its on Berkeley or Lincoln off of 7th Ave. Not quite sure about that though.
