Is there anywhere in the Greater LA area that serves Pici (or Stangozzi, Bigoli,) pasta? It was everywhere in Tuscany. But impossible to find on a menu here and almost impossible to find in any retail store in dried form. Forget about fresh.
I know it's supposed to be hard to make, takes 20 minutes to cook, takes 50 hours to dry, etc. but that makes me want it more. Know the feeling? I live in W.LA and with the seemingly hundreds of fine Italian eateries in the area, you'd think at least one of them would have traditional Pici even if you had to pay more for it.
Anybody have a handle on this?
