  1. I googled it and it appears that Lucca Deli in the Marina sells it.

    1. Here's a thread from a few months ago that lists many sources for 00 flour.

      1. Rainbow grocery sells it in bulk.

          Yes, Rainbow is the best place to get it. Ask an employee if you have trouble finding it; there are many kinds of flour.

        2. Lucca Deli on Chestnut (at Steiner). I bought some 00 flour today @ $1.99 a pound. Made pasta tonight and could not believe how much better 00 is over all purpose.

            Do you hand knead the dough? I use 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 00 and it's harder to knead than all all purpose; I've been reluctant to try all 00.

              I hand knead it after a 2-3 min run through my Robot Coupe. I always use 00 for my pasta, but not for pizza.

          2. Mastrellis in the Ferry Building has it
