Spaghetti are a timeless Italian classic, a symbol par excellence and probably the most known shape of pasta worldwide. This pasta takes its name from the Italian word ‘spago’, meaning ‘string’, reminiscent of its long, thin and round shape.

Voiello spaghetti are obtained exclusively from high quality Italian durum wheat, they’ve been bronze drawn and let air dry naturally to achieve that perfect texture which will hold your sauce superbly. 

Wrap them around your fork and let the magic happens.


About the producer:

The three golden rules of pasta Voiello have been the same for over a century: pasta obtained only from the best durum wheat, be bronze-drawn, be left to air-dry naturally.

It is thanks to these three principles that pasta Voiello reaches an exceptional roughness and quality, and it has been recognised for over 130 years as the pasta for connoisseurs. 

The ‘Aureo' wheat is the only one used for the production, a durum wheat of an extraordinary quality for its protein content and gluten toughness, grown and ground exclusively in Italy. This precious quality of wheat is particularly sustainable in terms of amount of water used and also for the environmental footprint.

Voiello also stands out for  their tradition and the excellence of all time.

Their story began in 1839 when the Swiss engineer Vanvittel, who arrived in Naples to build the first Italian railway, was fascinated by the Mediterranean culture and married Rosa Inzerillo, the daughter of a pasta maker.

After the wedding, August chose to retire to his father-in-law's workshop and learn the local art of pasta making, strongly encouraged by King Ferdinand I, and renowned since the eighteenth century. In 1862 he decided to Italianize the family surname from Vanvittel to Vojello to finally become Voiello.

The plan to open his own pasta factory was completed by his nephew Giovanni who, in 1879, inaugurated the Giovanni Voiello pasta factory in Torre Annunziata (Naples).

With his love for the research of the best, Giovanni studied a mixture of wheat which created a pasta dough which stood out for its exceptional elasticity and hold.

In a few years the pasta factory became synonymous of excellence in the ancient field of pasta making, a reference point for all the Neapolitan aristocracy and sophisticated intellectuals. Their reputation combined to the technologies of the time allowed the production to cross the borders of Campania region to became a national reference and today an international as well. 

As their famous advertisement says: Voiello is the pasta that "when it touches the sauce it never leaves it anymore”.


Our recommendation:

Initially Spaghetti were seasoned with just some oil, cheese and pepper. The first evidence of consumption with tomato dates back to an 18th century nativity scene, with two farmers who wrap spaghetti on a fork.

When you say Spaghetti the following recipes come straight to your mind: Carbonara, cacio and black pepper or seafood sauce. 

The world’s favourite: just a simple tomato sauce and basil.
