Criniti's Homemade Pasta: Oaklyn, NJ

Stopped by this pasta/Italian specialty store along a tired stretch of Route 30 last week. The small store has been open for a few months, and is right across from the Oaklyn municipal building. Purchased a pound of fresh fettuccine and a small frozen lasagna. I made my niece a fettuccine Alfredo, her favorite. I have to say this was some of the best pasta I have ever had. Light as a feather; even a 9 year old noticed the difference. And for $3.50 per pound! The manicotti is made with handmade crepes and looked delicious. There is also a selections of various ravioli, tortellini,. shells, sauce, etc. There is a very small assortment of canned and boxed imported Italian products. He also sells fresh mozzarella, and Italian cold cuts. Worth checking out if you're in the area.
BTW: the pasta was much lighter and better tasting than Severinos, imo.
