ISO Colatura di Alici (or Garum)

Colatura di Alici is an Italian anchovy based fish sauce from Cetara on the Almalfi coast south of Naples (sometimes called by it's ancient name Garum). It is used as a condiment to enhance the flavor of pasta dishes.
Has anyone seen Colatura di Alici available in the GTA?
With all the gourmets and great cooks in Toronto, not to mention the large Italian population, I'm sure it's available somewhere in Toronto. It has a more direct anchovy flavor than Thia fish sauce and tastes great drizzled directly on seafood or tomato pasta dishes. Got my first taste of it in Naples a few years and bought a small bottle that now needs replacing.
BTW, it's Worcestershire sauce's great great great grandfather...
Found it mail order from buonitalia.com in NYC ($13.15 + shipping). Still on the quest in Toronto, 'cause I'm sure it's out there somewhere.
Has anyone else tried it ?
