Where can I buy Bertagni pasta in the Northern Virginia / DC area?
When Bloom first opened, they sold Bertagni pastas - which are the B-E-S-T! And now, they've stopped selling Bertagni - for a couple of years now. I can't find Bertagni anywhere - Giant, Safeway, Bloom, Wegmans, Whole Foods - none of them carry it. I know I can order some from Amazon, but then you must order 15 packages of the same time - and I'd like a variety. If you know who sells Bertagni in Northern VA/DC - please, please, please let me know!!!
just curious, i looked it up. maybe the brand might be available even if it is being sold under someone else's private label? http://www.italianprivatelabel.com/in... just a thought. have you tried "the italian store" in arlington? i know they have their own pastas, but i think they carry other brands, too -- in the fridge/freezer section.
also, call that famous place, "litteri's" -- i know hounds rave about it's breadth of product lines. (sadly, i haven't made it there, yet).
Thanks for the info on the store in Arlington - I'll give it a try. Actually, I did contact Bertagni - but it was over a year ago, and I never heard back. I'll try it again - just in case. I don't remember seeing the 'private label' section on the website - so maybe I'll contact them twice, once for Bertagni, once to see if they have any info on private label products in the US.
I did get an answer from Bertagni and thought I'd share it incase anyone's interested.

They will be in the fresh section, not frozen, and you will be able to identify them by the bicycles on the front of the packaging and the Product of Italy indication on the front of the package. They are: Arugula & Parmigiano Reggiano Ravioli, Butternut Squash Triangoli, and Goat Cheese & Sundried Tomato Ravioli"

has anyone seen this trader giotto's pasta (by bertagni) yet at trader joe's?
btw, the harris teeter house brand fresh stuffed pastas are pretty good! just got some on sale.
i think safeway's brand isn't bad either.
i'm anxious to try the bertagni, esp. since it is -- in fact -- authentically italian.
