Where can I find Pici pasta in Chicago?

My husband and I just returned from Tuscany and have fallen in love with pici pasta. I bought some to bring home, but didn't realize how difficult it would be to find it in Chicago. Any suggestions on where to find it?

    Have you tried L'apetito. I think there's two, one is on Wabash and Huron. In any event, pretty good sandwiches and pizza. They seem to have a bunch of imported italian items, but its really a small selcection. Maybe Treasure Island, you could even try to get them to source some for you.

          No idea how good this place is, but the menu lists cacio e pepe made with pici.
