      My friends rave about Al Capone's in Inman Square and North Cambridge.

        I think it is just Capone's and they are in Union and North Cambridge, not Inman.

          Yeah, that place. Union, really? Did they used to be in Inman?

            Not sure...and I am guilty of adding the Boston apostrophe Ess....
            It's just Capone Foods. :)

              Never in Inman. I love Capone's fresh pastas, but for filled pasta I head to Dave's Fresh Pasta outside of Davis Square.

                Originally in Haymarket, they moved to Union Square, Somerville decades ago. And yes, the proper name of the place is Capone Foods, but the owner's name is (really!) Al Capone so it's often incorrectly assumed to be eponymous.

                While they do have an outlet in North Cambridge now, you're better off going to the Union Square location because they make the pasta there fresh to order, while you wait, in your choice of dozens of shapes and flavors. The North Cambridge store only has packaged items prepared earlier at Union Square.

              General pasta question - has anyone seen quadrettini anywhere in the Boston area? Would likely be dried, rather than fresh - tiny little squares....Any help is appreciated!

                Have not eaten anything from DePasquale's Homemade Pasta on Cross Street in the North End, but it looks good. Lots of cured meats and cheeses, as well.

                  We've gotten a few of their pastas and they have generally been quite good. My only comment would be that some of the flavored pastas don't really come through (e.g., the lobster fettucini really didn't taste like lobster). Great texture though and a single container for a couple of bucks is good for 2 very hungry people or 2 people plus lunch.

                    I've heard great things about Bella Ravioli in Medford but I've never tried their food.

                      does age or sex matter?
