Squid ink pasta?

Does anyone know where I can find squid ink pasta? Searching for a friend who lives in the Bay Area but can't find it anywhere...I don't need a restaurant that serves it, just the pasta itself for him to use in a dish at home...

      Yep, I bought it there once. I also once bought packets of squid ink somewhere, maybe at the Pasta Shop or Spanish Table. Anybody know for sure where to buy liquid squid ink for making the sauce?

        I've seen it somewhere. I think in the freezer at either Spanish Table or the Pasta Shop.

    2. Phoenix Pastificio sometimes has it fresh at either the Grand Lake or Temescal farmers' markets, so they are probably worth a phone call as to when and where they'll have it.

      1. something so specialized like that I might try A.G. Ferrari
