“A whole lot of unique pasta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Just about any kind of pasta one can think of from all around the world, from many different grains. Yes, organic and gluten free products are available, but do be sure to check out everything. Picked up some garden spinach angel hair, as well as some oat and flax linguine. Could not pass up the beautiful, exotic Farfalline Zebra pasta, made with black squid ink. What a conversation piece at dinner! Pasta in every shape and size, including fun animals and other themes. Am guessing reason this place does not get too many reviews is because it is listed as a restaurant--it is not a restaurant. Pasta is pricey, but have never seen such an unique assortment. Looking for an unusual gift? A bag of special pasta and a bottle of wine might be perfect for someone on your list.

Holy Cow, shocked that this shop has not been Raved about! Anybody who is following me, knows that I am all over the U.S. & The Islands! Also knows I chose Galena, Illinois as my Launchpad. Amazing place with a City wealthy with history & FOOD! Cannot make it better than you can get at Pasta Perfetta. Oh, BTW, I am afflicted with Celiac Sprue! Not a blink from staff. Home Made Gluten Free right there!

“big variety”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Lots of shapes and sizes of pasta. I bought a bag of penguin shapes for my daughter in Arizona. A big pricey, but for the novelty it's fair. Definitely wouldn't be an everyday kind of thing.
