Hounding for Butternut Squash/Pumpkin Pasta

I am on the search for either squash or pumpkin ravioli, to be specific. (I know that Franks had something like this on their specials a few days back but I foolishly missed it.) That said, any good pasta dish with BS/P will do.
I know Otto has one on the menu with Hazelnuts and penne...

A gnudi featuring these fall beauties would be a dream but I'm nut sure if this even exists...

I live in greenpoint/williamsburg and am willing to travel.

  1. Variations of squash and pumkin (zucca) pastas will probably be offered as specials at some places, espcially those who look to feature seasonal fare. Of course, that makes them hard to pinpoint on a given night. One suggestion in Brooklyn would be Locanda Vini e Olii in Fort Greene.

    1. iCi restaurant in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill has pumpkin ravioli with hazelnuts and sage brown butter on their regular dinner menu. They possibly serve it for lunch too, not sure.

      1. I also think they had this at Al Di La. I'm not sure, I haven't been there in over a year.

          It sounds like you're looking for a restaurant, but in case you're also interested pumpkin ravioli found in Italian markets - Piemonte in Little Italy (Grand btw. Mott/Mulberry) sells a very nice pumpkin ravioli (or it may be tortelloni, I forget), and actually, Citarella has very good pumpkin and butternut squash ravioli as well.

            I actually just had a very nice pumpkin ravioli from Raffetto's (Houston and 6th Ave), with their homemade walnut sauce. I don't know if that's a traditional combination (we usually go the sage butter route), but it was delish

              Love Piemonte especially for the pumplin ravioli. Like the sauce to though it is a bit on the sweet side

          2. I was at Downtown Atlantic this weekend and they had a pumpkin ravioli with gorgonzola xream sauce and walnuts. I believe Frankie's on Court Street also has a butternut squash ravioli with brown butter.

            1. The Farm on Adderley (on Cortelyou Road in Ditmas Park West) has very tasty butternut squash ravioli. They are served in a buttery sauce with brussels sprouts and parmigiano reggiano. The sprouts are shredded fine and add a wonderful sweetness and earthiness to the dish.
