In 1962, Giovanni Rana started a pasta revolution in his hometown of Verona when he began to make ‘grandmother-quality’ tortellini which he delivered by hand on his beloved Moto Guzzi bike. Back then it was simply a way to show his appreciation of the mothers and grandmothers of Italy by giving them a well-deserved rest from the task of making pasta by hand.
Fast forward to today and we’re still very much a family business. But we’re not just talking sons and daughters. We count everyone who works with us, cooks with us, grows our ingredients and eats our pasta as a family member. So, fill your bowl with some of our delicious tortelloni, and welcome to the Rana family.
Over half a century later and we’re still making pasta the same way, with incredible vibrant ingredients from Italy’s larder, and a lot of love. And it’s this kind of thinking which has made us Italy’s favourite fresh-filled pasta. These days we’re on a mission to spread the love even further. After all: food and family… it’s what life’s all about.
