If you want to recreate some of the Italian dishes you've enjoyed during your visit to historic Little Italy in Manhattan, head to these iconic venues on Grand Street. Aside from these places in the area, you'll find many family-owned storefronts throughout New York City—stocked with ingredients for your next meals at your home.

Since 1920, Piemonte Ravioli's Manhattan retail store offers dried and fresh pasta, such as tortellini, ravioli, fettuccine, linguine, gnocchi and more. Their fresh pasta varieties are made daily at their Woodside warehouse, which is in the borough of Queens in New York.
Scan the venue and let the staffers know which of their fresh pastas you want, and they'll get everything set for you. They also offer cheeses, which they'll grate upon order.
Their refrigerator contains many of their freshly made items.
