From Sicilian heritage to create authentic amazing dining experiences with our handmade Pasta, Sauces and exclusively imported Italian food and wines.

We create our homemade pasta and we sell it at the Italian Pantry at 131-133 Murray Street, Hobart, Tasmania

The Tasmanian Pasta and Sauce Company was born from my Sicilian heritage and raised in Tasmania. I worked in Rome, Sydney and the east coast of Australia, I moved to Tasmania in 1999 and opened a restaurant on Bruny Island, called Rao’s on Bruny. After several years on Bruny I purchased an import Italian food business with my mate, called Serra Rao Fine foods. From this we made our retail outlet and restaurant called the Italian Pantry. After bringing many new and amazing “firsts” to Tasmanian like Prosciutto di Parma, Buffalo Mozzarella and many others.

We then had great success with our dinners at the Italian Pantry receiving an award from the Italian government, Ospitalita’ Italiana for the most authentic Italian food provider in the Asia/Oceania and top 5 finalists in the world. The Italian government flew us over to receive this award.

Through this my love of pasta grew ever stronger. Over many years of travelling back to Italy to trade shows, I would often take part in pasta classes. When I returned to Australia I had the chance to buy some old pasta machines from a Tasmanian/ Italian legend, I later found out it was the first type of this machine to be delivered to Australia and the Southern hemisphere in 1976. This old machine would only produce 4 kg per hour. We still use this machine sometimes today but we now have a newer machine that produces a bit more.  Soon we hope to be making dried pasta. I also ran many pasta classes in our cooking school.

Christmas 2017 we will be collaborating with some farmers and another chef, Will Chapman from the Derwent Valley to participate in the Taste of Tasmania Hobart.

With over 30 years of cooking Italian cuisine and a lifetime of making pasta with my family I am able to produce something from that is dear to my heart and this shows with every mouthful.

Our pasta

Our Pasta has three ingredients: Semolina, water and love. We make in house Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Rigatoni, Penne, Gnocchetti Sardi, filled Ravioli, Lasagne sheets, Mafaldine, Pappardelle and more.

All of our pasta is extruded through bronze dies. This means that the pasta has an even greater texture and absorbs sauces, so that each morsel has maximum flavour.

Our filled pastas will vary from depending on what is fresh and available for example ricotta and spinach, young spring lamb, beetroot and goats cheese, pumpkin and sage and duck and porcini.

We also make squid ink pasta and spinach pasta and other flavours with only the semolina and the ingredients, no colouring or preservatives.

Our sauces

Our sauces are all made in house with natural ingredients, no preservatives or additives. They are great for busy families to have a home cooked ready in minutes. We take a long time to create great food that you can make fast.

Meatballs, Bolognese and Napoli are just a few of our sauces. We also have Arancini and slow braises.
