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.
