is handmade in our kitchen in Bologna, Italy by “sfogline” who use traditional methods of sheeting and cutting — none of our pasta is extruded. It’s prepared fresh daily, using a type of egg that’s available only in Italy and is specially produced for pasta. The result is a superior noodle that is the foundation for our classic Italian dishes.
“We dedicate ourselves to serving iconic pasta dishes like carbonara, cacio e pepe, bolognese, amatriciana and more. With half of our founding team born and raised in Italy and spending many years researching and traveling there, we discovered the restaurants and the chefs that make the best versions of these iconic dishes. Our drive is to bring these classics to our guests.
We have made every effort to remain true to the heritage of Italian cooking. Our recipes are based, inspired or directly sourced from the very best restaurants in Italy. Some chefs in Italy have allowed us to work with them in their kitchens to learn the recipes firsthand.
Our journey to find the best pasta in Italy took us to Bologna, the epicenter of fresh pasta. We tried but could not make that pasta here. Then the answer hit us, and it was to go in a direction no one has gone before. We needed to make the pasta there and overnight it here, so we built a kitchen and hired a team of experts in Bologna.”
We handmake our tagliatelle (flat, medium width noodle),
tonnarelli (noodle shaped like a thick spaghetti),
tortellini, ravioli and a traditional lasagna in Bologna.
