Where to find cavatelli in SF?

Does anyone know where to find fresh (frozen) cavatelli in SF? I can't find it anywhere, not even the usual Italian specialty shops. In NY this is a standard supermarket item - here, it doesn't seem to exist. Thanks for your help.

  1. I don't think I've ever seen frozen, only dried.

    1. I searched and searched for it years ago when I moved here from NJ. By some weird fluke, it briefly appeared (some brand from Brooklyn) in the frozen pasta section at various Safeways (2 in Mt. View and the one by Kokkari in SF) about 3 or so years ago. I bought up as much as I could. I called Safeway HQ to ask if it would be a regular item, but they said "no". We bought a Beebo cavatelli maker a few years ago and just it make it from scratch now.

        Can't believe they can't be found! Thanks for the info - I will look into the Beebo.
