From the Barbary Pirates to the Vikings to the Egyptians, Southern Italy has a unique history of diverse origins, which is reflected in the rich flavors of this savory sauce! Made using Pete Ilvento's original secret spice mix, Dal Pietro (or "According to Pete" in English) is what our family comes together to enjoy eating every Sunday. Especially delicious on lamb and lasagna, this hearty sauce will change the way you think about tomato sauce! Made locally in on the central coast of California, Ilvento’s Proprio Italiano uses all natural ingredients and no preservatives of any kind. It all started in 1933 at the repeal of prohibition when Joe Ilvento, an immigrant from Grassano, Italy, opened Ilvento’s Restaurant in Jersey City. Joe’s son, Pete became well known for his wonderful tomato sauces. Now, Pete’s son and granddaughter, Joe and Juliana, continue the Ilvento’s tradition by doing a small batch production of these classic Southern Italian style sauces. This product is hand made, bottled and labeled assuring the highest standards. 80 years of Sunday dinners later, we hope you enjoy this traditional family recipe!
