Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta is widely known for:

  • the rigorous selection of italian durum wheats that grow in purposely chosen fields especially on the hills of Apulia and Basilicata (South of Italy); the durum wheat is cultivated without the usual massive use of chemical fertilizers that increases the quantities at the expense of quality;
  • the processing method called ‘Delicate’: the long kneading, the slow pressing, drawing and drying at a low temperature permit to preserve the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and typical flavour and to secure a completely natural consistency;
  • the keenness for pasta, the cure and the constant research for the best quality that the Cavalieri Family hands out from generation to generation.

We are very proud of it as, from generation to generation, it portrays the great Italian tradition in the best way. It can be found, with its name and surname, in the menus of the most careful restaurants and on the shelves of the best delicatessen and wine shops all over the world. The gourmets appreciate so much Pasta Benedetto Cavalieri for the “excellent grain flavour and delightful chewiness”                                                                                                                                                (Wine Spectator, Pasta Perfect)


Benedetto Cavalieri has been producing durum wheat semolina pasta since 1918. The company’s watchword has always been “quality”, which means wheat only from Puglia and Basilicata, perfect machines for working pasta, bronze dies and slow drying in dedicated rooms. The result is an amazing pasta, with a beautiful color of ripe wheat, rough to the touch and fragrant.                                                      ( MagazineFood 2022 )
