N° 40-3 Spaghetti alla chitarra
This special pasta shape is of Abruzzese tradition, and is similar to spaghetti but with a square cross-section: Garofalo Spaghetti alla Chitarra conveys the genuine taste of Pasta di Gragnano PGI – bronze-drawn and processed with passion.
Its significant thickness and rough texture enriches the taste of sauces.
Thanks to its great porosity, it embraces condiments to perfection.

Thoughts and inspirations
This particular type of spaghetti is made with a typical Abruzzese tool called the chitarra, which means guitar in Italian.
It is a wooden frame with thin metal wires about 3 or 4 mm apart stretched over it.
Wide strips of fresh pasta are placed above the wires, then passed over with a rolling pin which pushes the strip through the wires and cuts it into square spaghetti.
The traditional Neapolitan recipe that is best with this shape is Spaghetti alla Chitarra con pomodoro fresco (with fresh tomato sauce).
How Garofalo Is Made
We take nothing for granted when processing our pasta.
Each step, each process draws on both ancient experiences and recent discoveries, as well as on an original interpretation of taste.
The passion for our work translates into an indefatigable quest for perfection.
