In 1948, just eight years after his arrival, Nicolo opened up his own shop in what was then and still is South Philadelphia's Italian Market. There he set about to create dishes that would be worthy of the name he would call his store: Superior. Superior not only because he believed his product was better than anyone else's, but because his product simply was that. Superior. The best.
Meeting with enormous success, the little pasta shop then began to make a complete line of pasta including plain, egg, garlic and herb, tomato basil, spinach, hot pepper, etc. available in cuts of spaghetti, fettuccine, linguini, and capellini.
As time went on he imported special olive oils from his home country as well as many other specialty gourmet items. From these humble beginnings sprang forth the finest pasta company in the world today. Superior Pasta.
We still use the original family recipes in making our "Old World" pasta dishes.
