Yes and no. We do make pasta without gluten. However, it is not made in a gluten-free facility. So, if you are cutting gluten out of your diet for personal reasons, this pasta is for you. If you have a medical condition like Celiac Disease, we would not feel comfortable selling our pasta to you.

What sources do you use?
The wheat and special grains we use for our pasta come from Castle Valley Mill. Our regular pasta uses Pivetti Sfoglia Gold 00 flour, which is incredibly pure and of the highest quality.
Depending on the sauce, we use either real San Marzano tomatoes, Posardi tomatoes, Jersey tomatoes, or crushed tomatoes.
We source our meats, produce, and dairy from a number of different local farms and sources. We also use many imported products where appropriate.
