Where to find fresh pasta?

fresh pastaHungry for something from home, Erin emails:

I grew up right outside of the Bronx and was spoiled by the amazing Italian food markets. I've been living in the Capital District for almost 5 years now but have been unable to find a place that does fresh-cut pasta (like this great place in the Bronx).
Maybe I just haven't been looking hard enough or missed something, but is there anywhere that does that around here?

We've enjoyed the fresh pasta from DeFazio's in Troy (they have a small market next to the pizza shop). And we're sure there are other options around the Capital Region.

Got a suggestion for Erin? Please share!

I wonder if Andy's Importing would do actual fresh pasta. I know they offer frozen fresh pasta (if that's possible).

Gotta mention Pede Bros. in Rotterdam. Find them at many Price Choppers and their storefront on Curry Rd (NYS 7) heading out toward Thruway Exit 25a.

DeFazo's also has amazing hand made sausages that fantastic.

I know that both Wheatfields restaurant locations sell their fresh made pasta, it's yummy. But not cheap.

Cafe Madison (now called The Point for dinner service) makes their own pasta

What about ice cream sandwiches? Presumably if made fresh in front of you with 2 cookies and a scoop of ice cream: taxed. If it's packaged and then put in the freezer: untaxed -- Unless the sandwichiness of the ice cream sandwich supersedes the ice creaminess of the ice cream sandwich, in which case it is a sandwich and taxable. After all, the stipulation is regardless of filling.
