A Nature and Taste to Discover
Rustichella d’Abruzzo
Pasta and Specialty Foods



Located in the Abruzzo region, the pasta factory uses the best ingredients to make traditional and special durum-wheat pasta according to the old tradition.

Set up in 1924, Rustichella d’Abruzzo once was as small artisan pasta laboratory. The artisan production method is the same as followed in the past time, and Rustichella d’Abruzzo’s pasta cuts are easily recognized at a glace.

Today, just like 80 years ago, Rustichella d’Abruzzo produces artisan pasta while following three golden rules of tradition:


  • The choice of the semolina from a accurate selection of the best durum wheat,
  • The use of bronze dies that give the pasta a special roughness essential to make it absorb any kind of sauce and then exalt the taste of any pasta dish,
  • The long drying process made keeping low temperatures around 45°. This process helps to keep the organoleptic characteristics of the semolina unchanged, giving the products a special taste
