Our Family History: Since 1971

Joseph and Anna Maria Severino learned the art of pasta making from Umberto Casoli, an artisinal pasta maker in Rome, Italy. In 1971 they returned to America with recipes in hand and introduced their uniquely handcrafted pasta products made from 100% Semolina flour.

The family shop in Westmont, NJ, soon became known as the place to find authentic, richly-flavored pasta. Over 45 years later, the second generation of the Severino Family (Peter, Louis, and Carla) share the same passion for pasta as Joseph and Anna Maria.

From Generation to Generation

We love that on any given day, our shop is full of family – yours and ours. From our beginning in 1971, we’ve always believed in the importance of a family-run business. Today, Peter, Louis, and Carla Severino are involved in the day-to-day operations of our company, and they’re beginning the process of teaching the craft to their own children. Louis’ son Joseph Severino has joined the business to work and learn about the heritage and art of pasta making. We look forward to being able to serve our customers for many years to come – by the future generations of the Severino family.
