Linguine, also called bavette, seem to have been invented rather recently, if compared to the ancient tradition of pasta. One of the first references to this pasta format, called bavetta, comes from the Dictionary of Tuscan Usage published in 1863, which describes it as “a pasta shaped in long, thin strips”.
It is a fact that currently linguine is one of the most requested pasta formats.
Linguine goes well with sauces that combine a weak structure with great aromatic strength, such as pesto alla Genovese, or with light fish and seafood sauces. Whatever the sauce, the golden rule is one: set your taste and creativity free!

The semolina with which our pasta is made comes from the milling of cereals that are grown exclusively in Tuscany, and that are cultivated with traditional methods, such as crop rotation, and other agronomic practices aiming to respect both soil and environment, essential prerequisites for a high-quality product.
The semolina is selected with special attention to the quality rather than the quantity of gluten it contains, in that gluten represents the major part of the proteins present in pasta
Our pasta is made in small amounts, and is the product of accurate craftsmanship: a dough made with excellent ingredients; bronze extruders (perforated bronze plates that cut and shape the pasta) that guarantee its correct roughness; slow drying (drying time varies according to the pasta format) at low temperature (between 30 and 35° C / 86 – 95° F).
