Fresh Homemade
Italian Pasta


Our Story

I get my passion for good cuisine from my Emilian (north Italian) family roots.

I learned the ancient art of hand-making pasta from my grandmother and aunts on my father’s side.

Over time, I started creating my own recipes for fresh pasta seasoned with herbs and vegetables – a quality niche-product.

What our customers say

I really loved it! Both the nettle and the porcini were superb in flavor and in texture.

I hope that we can get more of it soon as I would love to serve it here… Flavored or unflavored, I think that the texture is the winning part.

I had a sage flavored one with a very simple tomato sauce and though I am no generally much for flavored pasta, I actually really loved this one. Italian sage tastes differently to me.
