Martelli Pasta (in the bright yellow package)

Scary Bill Dec 1, 2007 06:21 AM

Williams Sonoma no longer carries Martelli. It appears Cheese Boutique will no longer be carrying Martelli, as everything they currently have is past it's best before date and is on sale.

Mrs. Scary would be very grateful if anyone could tell me where I might find Martelli pasta anywhere in the GTA or west of the GTA. It makes a great stocking stuffer!

    lol - stocking stuffer! :P
    maybe try your luck at st. lawrence market at those shops?
    maybe some places on college street in the portuguese or italian neighbourhoods..
    i've seen it in montreal and in the states but surprisingly i don't see it much here.
    good luck feeding mrs. scary!

      I would check out Masselli's at Danforth and Jones, they have an amazing variety of pastas.

      I found Martelli on line at www.salumeriaitaliana.com . It is the best pasta!

        Unfortunately not an option here in Canada, unless you have found some method to get them to ship to here! :)

          Have you tried Rustico d'Abruzzo pasta? It's probably the best dried pasta I've found. Haven't tried Martelli, though.

            Have not tried that pasta. Martelli has a great density to it.

              Give the Rustico a crack. It's got a fantastic tooth. Not to mention that it actually has flavor on its own, and doesn't need to be drowned in sauce.

              Their whole wheat pasta that has started appearing lately is pretty darn good too.

                I've seen it occasionally at T.J. Maxx (no joke.)

                  Are people referring to Rustichella?

                  If so, it is widely available. Highland Farms comes to mind. You can (could?) on ocassion buy direct from the distributor. Many shapes etc., and it is excellent, but Martelli is still my fave.
