We have made our pasta for over 200 years in the town of Gragnano. The town was named for wheat (Grano). Fresh spring water, sunny weather and the nearby sea make this hill the perfect area in all of Italy for making pasta. We are proud of our pasta and know that you will enjoy it. Cooking Suggestions: Add pasta and pinch of salt to boiling water. Cook for 15 minutes. Take your time, good italian pasta takes longer to cook, but you will enjoy a unique flavor when eating.
