Best source for dried pasta in London?

MoGa | Oct 20, 2010 03:09 AM

Whilst I wouldn't argue that it was the best, the Lucio Garofalo spaghetti (long) sold in 1kg packs at Sainsbury's seems to be the best value for money. Unfortunately, supplies are erratic and sometimes I can't get hold of it for many months.
That's when I get the Loyd Grossman brand as it's also made at the Garofalo factory.

I'm not a big fan of De Cecco or Barilla spaghetti as I can't get an ideal 'al dente' resistance with these and the surface texture just isn't right.

Where do other London based Chowhounders source their dried pasta from?

Also, I'm particularly interested in finding out where I can the Rustichella brand - which I'm keen to try.
