I am trying to track down this pasta brand. In 'Kitchen' Nigella says she found an online site for the UK. Can you help?

Unfortunately the supply of Voiello pasta has become a little patchy in the UK but there are a couple of other brands of calamari shaped pasta that you may like to try that are available on-line. Otherwise Nigella recommends trying De Cecco's mezzi rigatoni (no 26) as an alternative.
The Gentile brand calamaretti shape is available through
Farabella brand calamari pasta shape is available through
For the US if you live in the New York area you can buy calamari shaped pasta at Eataly (they have the Afeltra and Garofolo brands)
Garofolo calamari shapes (item no 8516462) are also available at
Rustichella brand calamari shapes are available at
and also at
