Recommended Posts

I am going to be in Vegas in a few weeks and i figure its a good place to look for this pasta.

right now i am in the reno area but i cant find it here.

i know i can mail order it but i would prefer to just avoid the shipping charges and get it

in a store if i can.

any help appreciated. thanks

The only place in town that would have that pasta is International Market at the corner of Tropicana and Decatur, close to the Orleans casino.

They don't have it. I haunt the Italian section of that store. They have many very good pastas, and it's worth going there just because it's basically a warehouse store for foodies.

But I've never seen Latini there...

ciao! we are Gustiamo and import pasta Latini in America. in the Bronx, to be precise. not near Las vegas, unfortunately. i am not aware of any store in Las Vegas which sells pasta Latini. if you think there is a specialty store there who would be a good fit for this great pasta, pls tell us and we'll contact them.

Village Meat and Deli on S Eastern Avenue in Las Vegas would be a perfect venue for the pasta -- it's where Vegas goes for wagyu beef, white truffles and other high-end items.

What I can't speak to is whether there would be a market for it. What does a pound of spaghetti retail for?
