I'm chef and pasta maker. My parents worked in their "pasta shop" for 40 years making pasta with passion. Five years ago, I opened my own pasta shop and I was very surprised to have been named among "the best 10 Pastificio in Rome".
I have also been reviewed on the prestigious " Il Gambero Rosso" guide from 2017.
I've been inspired by the "magical" pasta made by my grandmother when I was a child and I'm so proud to teach how to make this special pasta to everyone. Transmit all the love and passion of my family, today, represents my dream.

This is a MUST DO if in Rome. Emanuele a fantastic host and teacher! We had an incredible time in his class. We loved that what he taught us was passed down from his Grandma and we got to learn some family recipes. This was one of our favorite experiences during our entire trip to Italy! Also, as someone who is celiacs Emanuele’s knowledge allowed me to have the BEST gluten free pasta I’ve ever had.
