Our Story
Tradition and family experience since 1955

Pastificio La Lanterna was born from the owners' passion for fresh pasta and good cuisine of the Emilia Romagna tradition. In 1955 Gabriele and Ettorina had little money and a good idea: to bring the traditional flavors of Bologna to the Italian table. They start their activity in a small artisan workshop of just a few square meters, driven by a dream that soon becomes a real company with so much passion and devotion. Today Claudia, Lorenzo and Irene, daughter and grandchildren respectively, with the help of Fiorenzo and Andrea, partner and son, follow up on the dream. Making use of modern and cutting-edge technologies, they still keep intact the artisan characteristics of the past.

The production is aimed at retail, large-scale distribution, catering companies and the HO.RE.CA world, offering fresh egg pasta, filled or simple, green pasta with spinach, nettle and cuttlefish ink, fresh handmade and baked pasta, distributed everywhere in Italy by own means or through specialized couriers for temperature-controlled transport.

Our Mission
Tradition, quality and innovation

The goal of the pasta factory since 1955 has been the desire to offer the final consumer a product of the highest level made exclusively with selected and top quality ingredients.
The exclusive choice of noble raw materials, the absence of preservatives in the carefully hand-prepared fillings, the obsessive attention to customer needs make Pastificio La Lanterna a leading company in the production of fresh egg pasta. Great attention is also paid to condiments because the company scrupulously respects a mantra, the one that Claudia expresses every day, that is,

“We produce what we bring to our tables”

In recent years, Pastificio La Lanterna has experienced increasing appreciation and is now looking to tap into even wider markets with the aim of expanding abroad.
