The Story of Our Grandmother Filomena
Our 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, when she sent it to her boyfriend, a sailor in the Italian navy.
Filomena emigrated to the U.S. in 1924. She settled in Brooklyn 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 offering family recipes in jars with our family name on them in 1986. We are one of the original pioneers, if not the original pioneer, of quality pasta sauce in a jar. 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.
