Durum Wheat Semolina Pasta

Traditional production methods that stay true to our over 125 years old family recipe

1. Since 1886 we have been choosing the best durum wheat produced in Italy and in the rest of the world to guarantee a pasta with unique qualities and a perfect cooking performance
2. Before being milled, our wheat must pass strict quality controls make sure we deliver on our promise
3. The semolina we use for kneading is "coarse" to preserve the gluten integrity and to guarantee a "sweeter" taste
4. We knead the semolina with cold water at a temperature lower than 15°C to ensure greater pasta firmness while cooking
5. We use rough bronze drawplates, making the dough porous to better capture the sauce
6. We let pasta dry slowly at low temperatures to preserve the organoleptic characteristics of our wheat

From father to son
Since 1886 we have been carrying on an important responsibility: our tradition of making pasta, without compromise, that we refine each single day and that allows us to bring the authentic pleasure of Italian cuisine all over the world.

    What’s the difference between these and the average store brand ones.
    ^Tastes less like glue imo.

    This is the best pasta, will only buy this (& napolina spaghetti) though can understand those on a budget buying store brand.

    This is THE BEST pasta. It takes a few minutes longer than store brand, but honestly, once you've had this you won't want the store stuff.

    Just about finished the 3 dozen bags I bought last year, so time to stock up
    Given inflation and the predicted shortage of grain, I'm surprised this offer price is still £1. Well worth stocking up on.

    Most of us have never tasted the pasta. Just tasted the sauce and the salt in the water. Never the pasta

    £2/kg for pasta!! 82p/kg in Aldi. I realise that for many, buying at Aldi represents a decline in acceptable living standards. Choice is good. Spend, spend, spend
    We are buying lots from Aldi and never had any issues but those are superb in my view and the best in taste so emptied the shelves today

    Still available added a few more packs to my cupboard last shop. I do taste the difference to store brand in both texture and taste. also feels more plump after boiling vs store brand. Best when it's fresh eaten right away though. I find after storing overnight it looses that texture you pay for. Probably the case for all pasta. When it's At £1 it's worth the upgrade but at original price £1.5-£2.0 I'm not sure it's worth it for me at least. (edited)
