Because life is delicious. Like 1598.
Whether the noodle was first eaten in China or already in Ancient Greece is still up for debate. One thing is clear though, the pure and sterile air of the Mediterranean is perfectly suited for drying food. Nonetheless, the finesse lies already in the use of bronze dies in pasta production: the rough surface ensures an intense marriage of pasta and sauce! Our lavish selection includes lacy egg pasta nests produced entirely without water - these are a specialty also by Italian standards. Because life is meant to be enjoyed. Just like in 1598.To the products
OIL & VINEGAR
The dukes of d‘Este were known all over Europe for their “l‘aceto del duca” - our Aceto Balsamico di Modena comes from this line of regal gifts to kings and emperors.

We have compiled various outstanding Pesti for you. To this range we have added exciting sauces and the typical Passata - the traditional base for sauces, soups and more.
