The Story of Our Grandmother Filomena

GrandmotherOur grandmother, Filomena, was born December 5, 1895. She grew up in the town of Agropoli, in the Campania region of southern Italy. The photograph of Filomena on our label was taken in 1914.

Filomena emigrated to the U.S. in 1924. She settled in Brooklyn, NY and raised a family there. Her children and grandchildren swore she was the best cook in the world. The love and care that grandmother Filomena put into her cooking has become a family tradition and a trademark of Dell’Amore pasta sauce today.

We began bottling her signature marinara under the Dell’Amore name in 1986, making us one of the of early pioneers of premium, authentic pasta sauce being sold to the public.

Dell’Amore sauces continue to win accolades from customers and food critics alike.

And the rest, as they say, is history.


Her Legacy Today

Today, Dell’Amore continues to produce exceptional sauces that would make Grandmother Filomena proud – honoring her tradition of cooking with only the freshest ingredients.  And, we remain dedicated to the careful crafting and meticulous attention to detail that went into every dish she created.  The result – only the finest products ready for you and your family to enjoy.

Dell Amore family jarred pasta sauce is the best! I can say this because I come from a long line of excellent Italian cooks. Problem is these days I don't have time to cook. I have searched a very long time,  trying many brands of pasta sauce that did not meet my standards... until now. The SPICY RECIPE is to die for. Tastes so really, really good homemade. It is smooth, not chunky and it has a good amount of kick without the choking effect I get from other brands I've tried. We usually enjoy 2 jars each week. It's incredible how good it is. Last but not least, DellAmore customer service is very consumer friendly and very knowledgeable. Great company wirh a great product. What more can I say?
