Where to Stock Up on Fresh and Frozen Pasta in San Francisco

These restaurants are rolling out the lasagna, ravioli, tortellini, macaroni, and more 

View as Map

The thing about restaurants pivoting to retail is there’s this thrilling sensation of raiding the walk-in, and of all the items you might want to stock up on, pasta tops the list with a bullet. SF is rich in Italian-American restaurants, rolling out lasagna, ravioli, tortellini, macaroni, and more. And right now, more than ever, they’re selling fresh pasta by the box or bag, so you can take it home and either slide it into a simmering pot for dinner tonight or stash it in the fridge or freezer for later in the week. Because you know what mom says — a lasagna in the freezer is like carbs in the bank. Here’s where to stock up on fresh and frozen pasta in San Francisco.

Lucca Delicatessen

Let’s start with the ravioli king of SF. The city despaired when Lucca Ravioli closed on Valencia, but the original Lucca Deli in the Marina has still got the goods. Step one, get a salami sandwich to eat straight away. Then stock up on rav: Meat! Cheese! Spinach, pumpkin, or turkey! There’s a regular box and a jumbo box, but why hold back now? Oh, and lasagna, with meat or veggies, red sauce or pasta, in personal, family, and party sizes. And meatballs. Never neglect the meatballs. There are online ordering options for sandwiches or groceries, or you can just walk in.

A16 does everything beautifully, from pizza to pasta, breaking down a pig to a long-winding list of Italian wines. Whatever you’re ordering for dinner that night, throw in some fresh pasta for later in the week. The squid ink tonnarelli, green garlic chitarra, and ramp cavatelli are all intriguing seasonal flavors in pretty tints. Order online for pickup or get delivery through Caviar.

It’s hard not to miss the scent of salami hanging in the air at this North Beach institution. But even if you can’t hand pick your own roll right now, the deli is still sending out fat sandwiches for takeout and delivery. In the “we make, you bake” section, fans can also stock up on old-school lasagna, cannelloni, manicotti, and eggplant parm. Order online for takeout or delivery.

Seven Hills

Seven Hills only moved into its beautiful new space last fall, promising more whole-pig butchery and pasta, pasta, pasta. Raid the pantry and grab the freshly extruded maccheroncelli or spaghetti, and toss in some Calabrian sausage and housemade ricotta, too. Order online for pickup.

Cotogna

The rustic Italian restaurant is mostly focusing on family meals, which also look exciting, but pasta alert: The iconic raviolo, a big square of pasta with a buttery egg yolk in the center, is up for grabs. So are the fan favorite agnolotti de plin, those little pinches stuffed with tender braised bunny. Order online for takeout and delivery.

Che Fico Alimentari

Copy Link

Che Fico Alimentari has always had that salumeria slash wine shop at the front of the restaurant, and when shelter in place descended, the trendsetting group went hard on carbs. In addition to the family meal, which switches up every day, grab take-and-bake spinach lasagna, bolognese lasagna, and eggplant parm. Order online for pickup.

Thomas McNaughton has broken out of the pasta tasting menu. Load up on fresh extruded pasta, including spaghetti, bucatini, and rigatoni. There’s also take-and-bake lasagna, tortelloni kits, dough, flour, and more for DIYers. Order online through Tock, picking up Wednesday through Sunday at Central Kitchen.

Marcella's Lasagneria

Have a baby? Death in the family? Just trying to make it through the holidays? Or even shelter in place? Marcella’s has the lasagna to tide you through even the darkest of days. They’re available by the pan for pickup, and come in bolognese, bianca, artichoke, eggplant, black truffle, and porcini. Give Massimo a call at 415-920-2255.

Original Joe’s Westlake

Oh, for the days of waiting it out with leather-clad bikers and children’s soccer teams before sliding into a big booth, taking that first sip of a cold martini, and tucking into steak and ravioli. Until then, Original Joe’s has both a full takeout menu and a grab-and-go market. The pro move might be to order prime rib with creamed spinach for date night, and stash a bag of ravioli in the freezer for later. Joe’s has meat ravioli, veal tortellini, and cheese tortellini, and never fear, also lasagna, baked ziti, and eggplant parm. The pasta shop is open every day, so check out the menus online, and call 650-755-7400 to place an order for curbside pickup.
