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.

Sunday, we were at Costco and met Pat who convinced us to try your sauce.  "I never buy jarred sauce", I said but Pat told us to just give your sauce a chance.  We tried it....We loved it....We bought it!!!! It does not taste like any jarred sauce I have ever had! doesn't taste like it came from a jar at all.  I think that most people would think it is fresh!!! Delicious!!!! Convenient!!!! By the way, Pat is a gem.  She has a great way with people and she was a pleasure to meet.
