I've never seen it on a menu but does any one know of any places to get a bowl of pastina? Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

    1. Hi c11, as a small child, my grandmother always gave us pastina with ricotta so I have always considered it a "kid's meal" but am not sure if other Italian-Americans feel the same way (which, a longshot, but may be why you don't see it offered). I have never seen it on a menu. You should definitely look at getting some homemade gnocchi or ravioli dishes from an Italian American place if you are looking for comfort food.
