Come to the Green Mountain State to stay, shop, and eat! With no shortage of Italian eateries, Vermont does not disappoint when it comes to fresh pasta. Vermont is significant for spaghetti, fettuccini, penne, rigatoni, ravioli, and more. So tag along as we tackle the five best pasta places in Vermont (And you may want to bring a pillow because, after this, we are all going to need a nap!). 

1. Sarducci's, Montpelier, Vermont

There is only one Italian trattoria in Vermont's Capital City that overlooks the Winooski River and serves fresh pasta and wood-fired pizzas. You are going to want a reservation because Sarducci's gets packed in a hurry. Established in 1994, Sarducci's has been serving house-made authentic Italian dishes hand-made from fresh, local ingredients for more than 20 years. Check out their crab ravioli with shrimp or their Parmigiana dishes, and ask to see their wine list.

2. Vermont Pie and Pasta Company, Derby, Vermont

Vermont Pie and Pasta Company or VPP is one of Vermont's premier paint and sip locations! VPP also offers delicious fresh pasta dishes like chicken alfredo. Of course, the wood-fired thin-crust pizzas like the classic pizza Margherita or the decadent Applewood smoked bacon & chicken with caramelized onions are great too. But our favorite is the Tenderloin tips with gorgonzola and mushroom stuffed ravioli.
