The Original Recipe Marinara Sauce is wicked awesome–so fresh, so tasty. I live about an hour away from Colchester, VT and first heard about Dell’Amore sauces on the local TV station. In response, I ordered a couple of jars and they were fantastic. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t bother making my own sauce any more, preferring to rely on Dell’Amore.
As amazing as the sauce is, their shipping is equally impressive. I ordered several jars on a Friday two weeks before Christmas, fully expecting it to take a week to 10 days to arrive given what shipping is like here in Vermont in the winter, especially around the holidays. The first batch I had ordered was shipped via FedEx (the only national carrier that reliably delivers up my hill). So I was expecting to get a shipping notice sometime the following week with arrival shortly before Christmas, if I was lucky. Then “much to my wondering eyes” I looked out of my window on Monday morning and saw Green Mountain Courier delivering my sauces–essentially the next business day. How amazing is that?
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with Dell’Amore sauces. Two thumbs up!

I’ve long been a fan of all Dell’Amore’s culinary creations. There’s a little bit of heaven, in every jar of marinara.
A friend in Texas, commented that he hasn’t had decent marinara sauce since his mother (who was Italian), died. So…. I ordered some Dell ‘Amore marinara and had it shipped to Texas. And…….my friend LOVES it! He even went so far as to say (in a bit of a whisper), ‘”In fact, it’s better than my mother’s “. Mission accomplished!!
Thank you, Frank, and all at Dell’Amore’s. You do your grandmother proud! 💕
Best sauce ever. Just like my grandmothers. ❤
I first tasted the sauce when Frank was making Filamena’s pizza at the Monopole in Plattsburgh NY
There was the same photo of Filamena on the wall in the kitchen
I moved back to Florida – missing the sauce. One day I was in Publix grocery store and caught that Image out of the corner of my eye and it stopped me dead in my tracks. I have been buying it ever since then (often hard to find in Publix).
It is way better than any sauce – homemade, store-bought or in a restaurant. Since I am Italian-American, people want to take me to Italian restaurants – most are not good and none – even the expensive ones have a sauce like this!
Keep making it, Frank! Get it in more Publix stores and onto the middle shelves. It is often on the very top or very bottom.

We discovered Dell’Amore when we lived in Vermont for 5 years. When we moved to North Carolina we brought a case with us. What a wonderful surprise when I found out we could order it by mail. It is without a doubt THE best! It is especially appreciated because I am seriously allergic to onions and the basic sauce is completely onion free and oh so delicious!
Best marinara sauce for anything to mix with! I wish it was easier to find :/
Best jarred sauce I've ever had. Seriously, it's so good I've been known to eat it out of the jar with a spoon. Also love that it's not high in salt.
This is the real deal! I grew up in the New York City suburbs, going to authentic Italian restaurants, and after my family moved away, I never could find Italian sauces that matched what I enjoyed as a kid…until I happened into Dell’Amore at a Florida supermarket. What a find! Now it’s all we cook with. Whenever a recipe calls for a good, rich, tasty tomato-based sauce, we go for our Dell’Amore. I order it by the case. It’s like being a kid again, only better!
Robert Skogsberg (Howell, NJ)
Being a former neighbor of a Dell’Amore family member, I saw this in Costco ONCE and decided to try it. Being somewhat “famous” for my sauce, I was stunned to discover the Original marinara sauce of Dell’Amore is so much better than anything I have ever created. I have now been keeping it by the case in my pantry. Having high blood pressure and diabetes, it is also a very good choice for my health.
My husband and I love your sauce. We tried many brands through the years and your tomato sauce came out on top.
I have always made my own pasta sauce from my own tomatoes. But Dell’Amore sauces are the best. I have tried o lot of the different sauces, and I’m always coming back to their sauces. My favorite is spicy sauce. Just can’t have enough. Highly recommended.
Better than homemade . . . and it comes in a jar!! We serve this sauce with pasta, once a week, every week, without fail. Love, love, love it!!!
I have always made my own pasta sauce, a recipe I learned from my mother, who learned it from her first generation Italian-American friend. How I came to buy a bottled sauce, I can't imagine. But, by the greatest of good luck, it was Dell Amore, and I was thrilled. I've used nothing else ever since. What a blessing in my busy life to no longer spend hours making it from scratch.
Simply the best! Since discovering Dell'amore Sauce at Costco,I look forward to having it each and every time.
Tasting it, you can tell it is made with care and love.
Dell’Amore makes the very best spaghetti sauces; all of them are super-delicious. In the past I have ordered different sauces through your website. What other stores carry your products?
Myrtis Harriett White
There is no sauce anywhere (anywhere!) that tastes like or compares with this sauce (gravy). I cannot purchase it in Florida so I either have to do a mail order or when I visit Philadelphia, I head to Costco and bring back a dozen jars with me to Florida. I cannot eat any other sauce after relishing the flavors of this bottled delight.
Been the standard in our house for many years. Many others tried and NONE BETTER!
I first heard about Dell'Amore from a man who served as the kosher food buyer at Fairway, who simply raved about your product. I tried it and loved it, and have been hooked ever since. Fairway raised the price of your sauce but he said to me, "This is still a viable product. In fact, it might be the best product in this store." I use no other tomato sauce. I especially like the Original Recipe and Sweet Basil and Garlic flavors. I don't know how you make it so delicious!
I first found Dell’Amore at Costco and immediately fell in love with it! I learned how to make gravy from my Italian grandmother and have high standards for gravy and sauce! Dell’Amore is BEYOND good! We even make Pasta e Ceci with it for a quick dinner! Of course it’s terrific on pasta, on chicken Parmesan, on everything! Wish my local Costco would get it again!!
I was first introduced to your brand of sauce when I worked for CDS in Costco, Riverhead New York. I worked alongside the owner when giving out samples and loved the taste. I have a very sensitive stomach and usually had problems with jarred sauces or homemade sauces all my life. I have no problems with Dell'Amore sauce and was devastated when I couldn't get it for a long period of time. I even contacted your company. I kept checking and have moved to Florida and was overjoyed when I saw that Publix had your sauce on the shelves. I let out a little "whoop" sound and frightened a few people around me. Your sauce is a little expensive, but its worth it to me.
This is the closest to home made I've ever had. The Sweet Basil & Garlic is my fav — love, love, love it!!
I first tasted these delicious sauces a couple of years ago at a sampling at the King Arthur Baking Company store, and purchased some jars to take home to VA right then and there! Since then I have ordered a sampling of many varieties and they are all wonderful. Fresh and authentic flavor that makes any pasta dish (or pizza!) special.
Christine G. (Woodbridge, VA)
The best sauce ever!! I eat no other and when I share it with family and friends, they’re hooked. Love this sauce.😊
Imagine traveling many years ago on a riverboat cruise with my husband and while walking the town of Paducah, Kentucky , in the rain,
when we stopped in a little local store/bakery and husband spies a Dell'Amore sauce on display…and announces he wants to try it which
meant transporting it home to Southern California on the plane….it was an event but we safely got the jar into our pantry (don't ask me about our
experience when husband said he wanted to bring used bowling ball home from Guadalajara Mexico, with no bowling ball bag)
Here I am many years later still enjoying ALL the flavors and getting them shipped safely from charming Frank for my consumption or
as gifts to introduce people to this outstanding product.
Congratulations Frank and family on putting smiles on our faces and happiness in our tummys.
Your sauce is great with pasta as well as a base for homemade pizza. Since trying your sauce with our homemade crust we have not ordered a pizza from any restaurant. Dell’Amore makes the pizzas special with any topping .
Love this sauce. Tastes like homemade sauce. Worth every penny.
Better than anything I ever had in Italy!
David L Holton
This is by far the absolute best sauce I've ever tasted in my life. Trust me after you've had Dell'Amore other brands just won't measure up.
I have been using this wonderful sauce for years and it is truly the best of the best. I would like to take it a step further and say it beats most restaurants and homemade sauces. Love this product.
It's the best sauce around. Tried several different brands, but no comparison. I don't like using any other.
We love Dell'Amore's Sweet Basil Garlic sauce. It's our favorite 'go-to' sauce for a perfect romantic dinner — a little Chianti, a loaf of fresh crusty bread, and pan-toasted gnocchi with mushrooms & Dell'Amore's marinara. Marvelous!
PEOPLE ASK FOR THE RECIPE FOR THIS PASTA SAUCE THINKING IT IS HOMEMADE!!! I kid you NOT! Forget Newman's Own. If you add fresh basil it tastes like the real deal! Spicy and Basil& Garlic are my favorites. This is family owned and there is more that goes into this sauce than ingredients. It is Frank's grandmother's recipe. Become part of the Dell'Amore "family"! You will be happy that you did:)
Laura Klein Brent, MD
Very tasty sauce. Homemade flavor without all the work!
Doug & Win
Love the sauce! ❤ Only wish I could buy some in my part of the country.
My Family absolutely loves your sauces. It tastes just like my grandma's.
This sauce is the best jar sauce , no one comes close to tasting home made.
Great product; Great company; excellent consumer experience, on line and in Costco.
Dick King, Warren, VT
My son first served me some of this marvellous sauce about 15 years ago, and I was quite amazed at how delicious it is! I used to buy some for myself for special occasions, then decided life can be so unpredictable, so why not have the best each time! And it is THE best! I have had all the different flavours over the years, and been so happy with each, although spicy is my very favourite.
Let me add that the family who makes this great product takes their sauce and it's delivery very seriously! I've had a chance to talk to Frank and his son on occasion and I have been delighted each time at how much they care.
It does come in a glass jar, but don't worry about ordering it as it is packed so well.
This is literally the most delicious pasta sauce I've ever had, and I have had a lot of pasta!
Dell’amore is our favorite marinara sauce because it has only a few ingredients, is low in sugar, and low in sodium. It’s also the most delicious!
I would also like to put a shout out to Dell'Amore who has supported the South Burlington Food Shelf with sauce!
Thank you to an awesome company!
Dell'Amore is by far the best sauce ever! Have been buying it since they closed their amazing pizza place on the Intervale-Filomena's-anyone remember?? They had the best sauce and sicilian pizza around.
LOVE Dell'Amore and always buy some when I find it in Hannaford. The Spicy is our favorite, kids love the marinara and Tomato Basil recipes.
I always include it in raffle baskets when asked to make one-included with Grand Isle Pasta, a good bottle of Italian red, and a block of parmigiana. There is no comparison-my favorite sauce of all time 🙂 Buon Appetito!
I refused to use any other sauce! My local store stopped carrying it , so I buy online, its easy! The sauce is always consistently delicious, fresh tasting and well worth the price. It makes every dish I make taste homemade!
BEST SAUCE AVAILABLE! No one will believe this came from a jar! Brings back memories of my Italian grandmothers sauce!! NO EQUAL i have tasted! TRUTH!!
This is the BEST jarred Marinara Sauce you can buy! I'm of Italian ancestry and it tastes so much like mine and my Nonna's, but without the time and work. Our family loves it!
Having grown up in a large Italian family where my grandmother’s homemade sauce was so wonderful, it was a challenge finding a sauce equally as great. Until we discovered Dell’Amore many years ago and we have been committed ever since. Every so often in a pinch, try another brand, but nothing comes close to Dell’Amore. Whether spicy or traditional, the sauce is perfection and reminiscent of my immigrant grandmother’s home made gravy that took hours to prepare. It is truly the best. Not another brand comes close to their authentic Italian gravy.
I saw a Women many years ago in Hannafords, in Kingston NY doing a tasting of della amore many many years ago. Hannaford carried thus sauce for several yrs and I bought a jar every few weeks! This sauce is the closest to when I used to make my own!
Its A fantastic sauce!!! When Hannafords stopped carrying it I took a day trip to VT and stocked up! Then I found out I could buy it on line, and I do this on line thing, because I've tried many jar sauces, and none compares to the taste of della amore! It has the richest tomato taste without alot of other things added! Don't ever change the recipe! You have a big hit!!!
Love! Love! Love! Found this awesome sauce through King Arthur when I ordered the pizza kit! No better sauce out there! Thanks Frank!
Hands down the best sauce ever put in a jar I have found . Pretty close to what grandma used to make from Gramps tomatoes 🍅
We try to have a cabinet full of Dellamore sauces. So fresh the house smells like we are in the North End. We have to order it to be shipped often! Worth millions for every bite!
I first found Dellamore at our grocery but then they stopped caring it. Even after asking they never ordered. I love this product, love the taste, and love the convenience of it. I won’t buy anything else, I don’t care what’s on sale, what else the grocery store has, I’ll call Dell’Amore and order it! It’s so effortless to order and the package comes without any breakage! If you love Spaghetti Sauce, there’s none better!!
judith a Grove
Great marinara sauce! First tasted in NY from Charlie’s recommendation. Still our go-to sauce in Michigan!
Brenda Rowley Gray
Being from Barre I recognized the name as providing a quality product.
I have been using this sauce for many years and it never disappoints for quality and taste.
As a long term customer of the amazing products, the recent excitement to the tweak of the spicy sauce recipe was totally awesome! Every Monday night is pasta time at our place. Everyone totally loves the new taste especially my significant other who is into tangy flavors and quality ingredients. Well done!
You want a great pasta sauce? This is the one for you. Family owned business which puts a lot of heart and love into their sauce. I will NEVER buy any other sauce ever…This is a great tasting and amazing sauce with all fresh ingredients. My kids are fussy and they love it!! A++++
Mike Lysak (Edison, NJ)
For starters, Frank is the man! I have had many sauces in my life but nothing could even come close to this sauce! The flavor is literally out of this world. There are no words that can truly describe how good it is. If you think that you have had good sauce before, you haven’t. Trust me. There is no sauce that is better than this. I give it a 15/10 and recommend this to everyone! You will not regret buying it!
Plus their customer service and passion for it is what makes it all the better and it wouldn’t be possible without Frank! Bon Appetit!!

Have your spatula at the ready because you won’t want to waste a single drop! I look for excuses to use this sauce and there is literally not a fresher tasting sauce out there. The perfect marry of tomatoes, garlic and spices. If I had an Italian grandmother, this is the sauce I would have wanted her to make! I would honestly go to the ends of the earth to find this sauce! RUN don’t walk! You won’t regret it!
Kim W. (Chalfont, PA)
Walter (New Jersey)
This exceptional Marinara sauce is the best on the market. When my store ran out I bought every single sauce that they had and tried them all and there is no comparison! I now order online direct from Dell’Amore and have never been disappointed. Keep the flavor coming!
Barbara J. (Daytona Beach, FL)
I demo Dell’Amore Marinara Sauce and wanted to share some of the comments I have received. My favorites are from children.
~ I’m literally in heaven now! Mary 12 y.o.
~ It’s everything I ever wanted! Just like my Nonni’s who was born in Italy. Magan 9 1/2 y.o.
~ NOW, I like tomato sauce. Lauren 13 y.o.
~ When my Italian in-laws- come to dinner, I will be using Dell’Amore and hiding the jar!
~ This is the first time in my life I have ever bought jarred sauce. I am Italian and always make my own but this is just as good as mine!
I wish I had a video of the customers faces when they taste Dell’Amore. It really has a “WOW factor”.
I just had to write to you to thank you for making such a great product. We have been getting your sauces for some time now and they are so good! We have been dieting and find that your sauce is really a great fit. My husband went to the VA a while ago and they told him that he had to lose weight, but he is finding it very hard to do, so I try to look for good foods that he likes to help him with his journey. Anyways, I found your sauce and we had it with a low carb pasta and he was in heaven. He loved it so much and it was just really great. This is a win for you and a win for me too!
Marie McLaughlin (Florida)
I come from a family of Sicilians and my mom passed away years ago. Your sauce is as close to my mom’s as it gets! It’s phenomenal! My mom had her secrets and style when making Sunday sauce, but you guys have definitely made my Sundays and weekdays! People have said it’s expensive, but once you taste it you’re SOLD! Keep up the good work and don’t change a thing!
Frank David Colla
I have lived in Sardinia, Italy, and I have used most of the top brands of marinara sauce. I have never been as pleased as I am with Dell’Amore. Since I discovered this sauce years ago, no other can compare. The mixture of ingredients and the texture are perfect. I also use this sauce as a base for other Italian dishes, not just spaghetti. No need to make your own sauce when you have the very best blend, Dell’Amore.
Cheryl P. Haik (Mississippi)
The best…hide the jar when company comes and take all the credit!
The Boston Globe Magazine
Best of the bunch!
San Fransisco Chronicle
Growing up with an Italian mother jarred sauce in our home was a sin. She had the time to make her sauce and it was the best in the world. These days, who has the time to buy all the ingredients and wait?
I purchased your sauce during a personal taste-test shopping trip to find a jarred sauce that best resembled my Mothers. I became more and more discouraged as I went through jar after jar. When it was time to give Dell’Amore its chance at bat….HALLELUJAH! It was like my Mother was in my kitchen cooking her sauce! I was so happy and satisfied as I ate my pasta filled fork full and sauce soaked Italian bread. I might have shed tear or two. Thank you for the food memories! Keep up with the love and care you put in every jar!
Dell’Amore is the only marinara sauce my husband and I can eat. Your sauce is the only one that is easy on our digestive systems because it is less acidic and not too spicy. Every other sauce (and we’ve tried them all) gives us acid indigestion and other digestive discomfort. Also, Dell’Amore marinara sauce actually tastes like real tomatoes. Every other brand of marinara sauce tastes like a jar full of Italian spices, which always overwhelms the tomato taste. Dell’Amore is the best. We sometimes add sauteed onions and a little ground beef to it, which can’t be beat. It’s also really good in recipes like meatloaf and any other recipe that call for tomatoes. Dell’Amore makes it possible for us to eat Italian again…and more often! We just absolutely love this product.
Thank you Dell’Amore!
Donna G. (New Jersey)
I wanted to write and thank you for creating the best pasta sauce. My family has had many different pasta sauces, including my own “gravy” which is grandmom Rita’s recipe and cooks for over 4 hours. By far your Dell’Amore sauce is the best we have ever had.
First of all, it is all natural. We love that there are no added sugars or any additives.
On Christmas I had the best surprise. Fourteen guests were present. My first course was homemade non-frozen cheese ravioli. My family loves these. We have these on special occasions usually with my homemade gravy. Unfortunately, I was not able to make my own. This Christmas I used your Dell’Amore sauce after tasting a sample at our local Costco and purchasing the sauce.
I opened the jars prior to arrival of our guests so no one would know the sauce was jarred. My guests raved and raved about my sauce asking me what I had done that was different. No one suspected the sauce was not mine. I broke down and said the sauce was Dell’Amore. As hard as it was, I decided to give credit to your company. Everyone was amazed when they heard it was not my own sauce.
Thank you. Thank you for creating a sauce that is better than mine, better than any jarred sauce I have had.
Guess what! Dell’Amore is my new sauce. Sorry grandmom Rita
Linda (Fort Washington, PA)
“I just had to tell you that I just tasted your sauce, Dell’Amore Marinara, and I wanted to say how wonderful it is. I love to cook, and I usually always make my own sauce because of the sodium content and everything is so high. You achieved the perfect sodium level with the perfect taste and it is amazing, and I just really wanted to tell you that I love the whole concept. I love the picture on the lid, I love it all. It is a fabulous product, and I just want to say thank you for making it!”
Cheryl Schalk-Marietta (Georgia)
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! Actually……it 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.
Janet B. (Staten Island, NY)
“Thank you for sharing your tasty Dellamore tomato sauce with us! My husband and I try to eat as clean and healthy as possible and in order to do so requires a lot of prep work in the kitchen which costs us something precious, our time! No longer are we taking time to make our own tomato sauce because we’ve found Dellamore. We have two Costcos equally far from us but we choose to shop at the one in Robinson because of your sauce! Pat was there the first time we ever tried it and you can tell the love for your product by it’s company and its people is cooked into the jar. Thank you for producing an outstanding product without any unneeded extra ingredients. Pure, simple, fresh, delicious. We amore Dellamore!”
Aubrey Johnson (Pittsburgh, PA)
“First let me say I typically do not buy any sauce/gravy because I find many of the brands I have tried taste sugary or quite frankly taste manufactured. Instead I make my own sauce from scratch with all natural ingredients. On a recent trip to Costco I was approached by Pat who insisted (in a very good way) I try your Dell’Amore Premium Marinara sauce. WOW immediately I could taste the freshness I never imagined would have come from a jar.Of course I had to check the label to see what was in it. All the ingredients I use, nothing more nothing less. Thanks Pat for suggesting I taste the Marinara sauce, I am now hooked on it for life!”
Kelly D. (Hillsborough, NJ)
“I was in Costco in Riverhead, NY. When a vendor named Pat asked me to try your sauce. First, I said no I use Rao. Its imported from Italy. She said just try it. Thank goodness for Pat. Your sauce was much better tasting. I belong to Weight Watchers. So I usually don’t eat pasta. But tonight I just put up the water. For some yummy sauce and pasta. I can also have this with vegetables. Its so awesome! I will be sharing my new best find Dell’Amore with my weight watchers group. It’s half the price, and made in America!”
Suzanne M. (Riverhead, NY)
“I just wanted to let someone know that I really enjoy your Marinara Sauce. I was lucky enough to be at Costco a few days ago when it was being given out as one of their sample ‘tastes’. I usually taste, but don’t generally take the item home. This time I did, and, not only have we enjoyed it, but I am going to wrap up a jar of it and put it in a fancy colander with spaghetti and cheese and pot holders and things for a bridal shower. It is also awesome that it is kosher and lower in salt and sugar than most products. Thank you very much for making such a delicious sauce…..it will make my life easier! It was also nice to meet Pat. You couldn’t have a better representative…….she certainly loves your product, and she’s fun! Sincerely, Nancy S.”
Nancy S (Mamaroneck, NY)
“My husband and I lived in Switzerland for many years, and after being back in the U.S., only got some REALLY good prepared sauce when we found YOURS! Before finding your brand, I always made it from scratch, with plum tomatoes, butter, garlic, olive oil, and basil, plus a few other spices. My husband cannot eat onions, so the added advantage to your very fresh tasting sauce, is that it DOESN’T have them. In Europe, there are lots of options of prepared food WITHOUT onions, but in the U.S., there are hardly any. Your sauce has made my life MUCH easier. Please NEVER change it!! Please NEVER stop making it!! I use it for pastas, pizza, salad dressing, and for Middle Eastern foods.”
P.C. (West Des Moines, Iowa)
“I’m such a fan of your basil and garlic sauce ever since I got to try some at a guy’s house in Chicago. It was so good, I asked who made it and he pulled out a jar of your stuff, and I wrote down the name and looked it up later. It really reminded me of the gravy my old ma made back in Patterson, NJ when I was a kid; it’s been that long I tasted a sauce as good.”
Erich W. (Indianapolis, IN)
“I just want to tell you that I go out of my way to buy the original pasta sauce. My family LOVES it!! My husband doesn’t like to eat onions. I bought this originally because it was the only one I could find without them. Now, I’ve found a few other options, but we only like the Dell Amore sauce. My family compliments me every time I serve it. It’s my secret to a perfect “go to meal.”
Amy C. (Durham, NH)
“My wife and I were in Costco in Warminster, PA, last weekend with no intention of buying any tomato sauce. After making our own sauce all summer from a bountiful vegetable garden, we couldn’t face going back to a commercial sauce. Then we met “Wonder Woman” at Costco who has to be the best company spokesperson you can have. We sampled your Marinara sauce and after hearing all about you and your grandmother, we bought two jars. The fact that it’s only 80 calories a serving was a deal clincher. We just finished dinner and I had to write to tell you how delicious it is. We’re looking forward to trying the other varieties.”
Bruce F. – Warminster, PA
“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 fresh…like 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?”
Andi (Acworth, Georgia)
This has to be better than any sauce I have ever made, bought or ordered out!
Charise M. (Newark, DE)
“As a registered dietitian in Boston, I can’t sing enough praises about Dell’Amore tomato sauce. “Born in Italy, Made in Vermont,” this premium marinara sauce is as close to homemade Italian “gravy,” as you will get. I was introduced to one of the owners, Frank Dell’ Amore, after I contacted the family-run company to let them know that I loved that their sauce was low in sodium and tasted great. Frank called me back personally to thank me for my feedback. I was so impressed that I decided to visit the Dell’ Amore plant, a mere 250 miles away in Vermont, and blog about it to share my good fortune. But the best part is, YOU don’t have to travel thousands of miles to Italy to enjoy a great tasting marinara sauce- their grandmother, Filomena, already did that leg of the journey for you! Mangia!”
Sophia Kamveris (Boston, MA)
“Over 20 years ago I bought a jar of Dell`Amore Premium Marinara Sauce (Original Recipe) at Cowan & Lobel, a local gourmet store – my husband Jim and I thought it was the best sauce we ever had! I also loved the fact that it had no added sugar (a rare find, indeed) – I was in 7th heaven! Since we used it just about every day, I made sure we had an ample supply on hand.
Upon the closing of Cowan & Lobel, Jim and I said, “Oh no! Now what are we going to do???”. I had a bottle left so I called the 1-800-962-6672 # on the label to inquire if we could have some shipped to our home. I had a delightful conversation with Frank Dell`Amore (one of the owners) and he was happy to take my order for his spectacular sauce. Imagine his surprise when I ordered 5 cases! Since that day we have never run out and we continue to order 5 cases at a time. We still eat it almost every day and upon occasion we give it to close friends as a gift.
I work in a hospital and when I heat up my lunch nurses, doctors, etc. always come into my office to say,”Wow! What smells so good in here? You can cook for me anytime!”. I readily give all the credit to the Dell’Amore marinara sauce. Jim and I are so grateful for this incredible product. We also highly cherish the long-term relationship we’ve had with Frank, whom we consider to be a member of our extended family.”
Ruth Berkery (New York)
“I’m always searching for a better tomato sauce – one that tastes “like Mamma used to make”. Fortunately I came upon Dell’Amore marinara sauce at a tasting station at our local market. I exclaimed Mamma Mia!! It is so good, a rich, soft, flavorful sauce blessed with traditional seasonings. I still like to make my own though I know I don’t have to. For me, Dell’Amore will always be there.”
Dick DiMaria (Harwinton, CT)
“I always tell people I’m the only Italian I know who doesn’t like red sauce, (except for my Moms.) But I love your Dell’ Amore sauce! We were visiting our Aunt and Uncle in San Jose California this past summer and my Aunt made lasagna. I really didn’t think I would like it because it’s hard enough for me to find Italian food I like that is made by Italians much less non-Italians. As it turns out it was a hit with both my family and I. I asked her how she made it and she pulled out a jar of sauce from the cupboard. I was shocked and thought she was joking because it tasted so fresh and good. I couln’t believe such an amazing sauce came out of a jar! I read the label and was very impressed with the natural ingredients. I will be ordering your sauce online until more stores start to carry it here in Colorado and I look forward to trying the different flavors. I look forward to having my family out here try it too. Thank you.”
Sandy (Centennial, CO)
“I first noticed Dell’ Amore pasta sauces in the Philadelphia Italian Market over 30 years ago…and I have been ordering from the company ever since! This brand is not available in our small town, but it is worth seeking out! Dell’Amore provides excellent customer service, so ordering has always been very efficient. My teen agers loved these sauces when they were still at home, I sent them cases when they moved into their first apartments in college, and we have now nourished 8 grandchildren on pasta with Original Dell’Amore Sauce. Spicy Recipe is our other favorite. I am an avid cook, but it is wonderful to have a few convenient products that taste so homemade! I feel that Dell’Amore provides healthy choices, and I appreciate that they are also lower in sodium than other brands. I like the recipes and the texture of the sauces as well…fresh tasting, not too chunky. They are also very versatile, and I often add meats or seafood for variety. Dell’Amore is the only commercial pasta sauce I will use…it is delicious!”

“As an Italian-American, I do not come from a tradition of using bottled pasta sauce! Which is why I was overjoyed to find Dell’Amore. No other sauce on the market even comes close to Dell’Amore for that traditional, homemade taste.”
