Angelina Mariani Costantino, the matriarch of our family grew up in San Pietro Avellano, a village in the Molise Region of Italy. Life was simple in a small community in Italy in those days. Angelina and her large family enjoyed a dinner of spaghetti or gnocchi covered with flavorful pasta sauce, a radicchio salad and Chianti. They lingered over the meal enjoying each other's company and the delicious food.

Christopher Costantino's passion has been to bring this same wonderful culinary experience to American families. Established in 2011, Costantino's Kitchen produces gourmet, home-style pasta sauces and other Italian specialty foods from fifth generation Italian family recipes. Christopher still follows his grandmother's tradition of using the freshest ingredients and slow cooking his sauces to deepen the flavor.

Now, it is time for the next logical step in the evolution of our successful gourmet Italian food business. In 2016, we launched our first food truck, Costantino's Italian Kitchen. The truck serves authentic pasta dishes featuring our sauces as well as other Italian favorites. Our goal is to make some great food, share it with friends and have fun!
