Does anyone know if this can be bought locally?

      Milano and Diabolissimo

        I feel like I've seen this at Chez Vito, Fairmount corner St Urbain.

          Looks like it's not sold in Montreal. I was able to find at: https://www.gustiamo.com/ in the Bronx, NY
          They ship to Montreal.

            Yes it is: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9186...

            And you will never pay them 10$ here...

            I saw some last weekend at the Bourassa in St-Jovite.

              Odd, I'm sure I've seen some nearby; remember the distinctive box. Perhaps at Capitol? (JTM) or else at Milano. Capitol also has a store in Duvernay, Laval.
              Marché Jean-Talon, Montréal (514) 276-1345
              80, rue de Callières Duvernay ( 450-661-6800)

                I don't remember seeing them at Capitol (and I was there yesterday), but Milano definitely.

                  I called two weeks ago and was told they do not stock Martelli pasta. Called again today - same answer.
                  Well, I guess I better go see at Milano for myself.

                    Maybe they just stopped? Did you try Diabolissimo?

                      Saw them today at Milano. They were 4.95$.

                        Thanks, Glaff. I knew it was either Capitol or Milano...

                        May I ask what makes them so special - as compared with other "quality", premium-price pastas?

                          Glaff...Thanks - I will make the pilgrimage to Milano this weekend. Disappointed they could not give me an accurate answer when I called...twice.
                          Lagatta - Martelli just shows up on so many 'best pasta' lists. Of course, in the premium pasta category, so does Rustichella d-Abruzzo. And that's available now at my local Metro - also for around $5.50.
                          Thanks again!

                            Absolutely nothing from what I tasted. I prefer Rustichella d'Abruzzo
