The artisanal pasta factory, Il Vecchio Pastaio, owes its superior product quality to its artisanal production, that allows us to comply with the specifications required by the Consorzio della Pasta Gragnano, consortium of Gragnano pasta while making our products using semi-automated processes, where craftsmanship and pasta artisan decennial expertise still make a difference. We are pride of choosing for our products, only the best quality semolina. We only use slow bronze drawing, which allows our pasta to be porous and so to better soak in sauces. Our slow drying process gives the "Vecchio Pastaio" pasta perfect cooking characteristics that make it a delight to your palate. We are proud of complying with the P.G.I. specifications of Consorzio della Pasta di Gragnano, even though our factory does not implement the same industrial processes that other bigger and more renowned companies use. Il Vecchio Pastaio, can still comply with the required specifications and be a leading company in artisanal pasta making. We are also proud of delivering to our costumers a unique quality-cost tradeoff.
