Explore some of the greatest generational secrets of the Italian culinary world at Il Pastaio di Eataly, a fresh pasta bar. Meaning "pasta maker," Il Pastaio offers fresh, housemade pasta by the bowlful, prepared daily by Eataly's very own pastai who knead, roll, cut and form each shape from scratch according to artisanal pasta-making traditions. Savor a variety of Eataly's regional Italian pastas, from the slow-roasted veal-filled agnolotti del plin of Piemonte to the saffron-enriched malloreddus of Sardegna, paired with a unique selection of Italian wine and beer by the glass.

OUR INGREDIENTS


FLOUR
Our semolina flour is certified organic and is produced by Molino Grassi, an Italian mill founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1934.

FARM FRESH EGGS
In order to achieve a rich flavor and golden color in our fresh pasta, we use naturally fertilized eggs from Saunders Farm, located in Brownstown, Pennsylvania.

FRESH SAUCES
For every shape, there is the perfect sauce! All of our sauces are created in-house, with recipes developed by Eataly's chefs following centuries-old Italian traditions. We use both high-quality ingredients imported from small producers in Italy and fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from U.S.-based farms and producers.

ARTISANAL TECHNIQUE

The secret to Eataly's pasta-making technique? Small hands and big hearts! Our team of pasta makers mix, knead, roll, cut, and form each pasta shape from scratch following artisanal Italian methods. We also use pasta machines with bronze die attachments to extrude certain shapes. Each bronze die offers a perforated filter giving each pasta shape a rough, porous texture. The result? Pasta that absorbs the sauce more easily and unique mouthfeel.

LA PASTA DEL TAVOLO

Watch and learn as each month our pastai handmakes a new specialty pasta from the Italian tradition at il Tavolo, our pasta-making table just behind the bar. Taste the results in two featured dishes, one version featuring the traditional Italian sauce pairing and the other, a more seasonal approach to it, then come back next month to experience a new shape!

This month explore the world of Strozzapreti, a pasta lunga, or "long pasta", from Emilia-Romagna. Strozzapreti literally meaning "priest stranglers" get their name from a variety of urban legends, one of which tells the stories of priests so enthralled by the pasta that they ate it too quickly and choked themselves. Strozzapreti are an elongated, twisted pasta shape, hand rolled and typically served with ragù, how would one not be enthralled by it! Join us to taste both dishes then put a reminder in your calendar to come next month to discover the new shape.
