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

Tried them out yesterday on my bike. It felt SO much safer than the rest of Madison. And guess what? Where it's 4 lanes, I had to take up a whole lane anyway because there is not enough space. This will definitely encourage others to ride bikes. And I have not seen any additional traffic. It's astonishing that in 2016 Albany still only has 2 bike lanes. We need lots more!
