We love the pasta dishes @ Franny's in Brooklyn. After some pestering, we found out that Rustichella is the only pasta they use. Something about being extruded thru hand-carved bronze, rather than teflon, dies. The taste is a revelation!
I love this pasta, I don't use anything else
I've tried Montebello, DeCecco, Latina, and others. This is the pasta I keep coming back to as my favorite. I think I could use only this and be happy with it forever!
