When I was growing up, my father used to say...
"I don't like the fancy Italian restaurants, I want the Italian restaurants that use red and white tablecloths".
We love them too!
So, in honor of my father and all who love them... we are offering a 60"x60" square restaurant-quality tablecloth sporting the red & white checkered look.
100% Polyester. Machine wash. No ironing needed. We use this at home and it's really a good quality tablecloth.

Southern Italian Desserts - Rediscovering the Sweet Traditions of Calabria, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, and Sicily
An authentic guide to the festive, mouthwatering sweets of Southern Italy, including regional specialties that are virtually unknown in this country as well as variations on more popular desserts such as cannoli, biscotti, and gelato.
In Southern Italian Desserts, author of the acclaimed My Calabria, Rosetta Costantino, collects seventy-five favorite recipes from the regions of Calabria, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, and Sicily. These picturesque areas have a rich history of beautiful desserts, many of them tied to holidays and festivals. For example, Zeppole di San Giuseppe are doughnut-like pastries topped with cream and cherries, traditionally made in Campania for the celebration of Father’s Day. And the Sicilian chilled watermelon pudding Gelo di Mellone is a refreshing dish served in summer for the festival of Palermo’s patron saint, Rosalia. Other desserts such as persimmon gelato, chocolate-dipped figs stuffed with almonds and candied orange peel, and chocolate-hazelnut cake rolls celebrate Southern Italy’s local bounty and traditional foods. With recipes for more familiar Italian desserts such as cannoli and gelato, as well as deliciously obscure sweets such as rich cassatas, almond-flecked cookies, and flaky cream-filled sfogliatelle pastries, Southern Italian Desserts features a treat for every occasion.
In addition to explaining the regional history, symbolism, and lore behind the desserts, Costantino teaches you how to stock your dessert pantry and provides all of the foundational recipes you need to embark on a sweet tour of the Italian south from your kitchen. This delightful confection of a cookbook will expand your dessert repertoire and leave you dreaming of Italy. Buon appetito!
"Frankie... Does everything have to be RED, WHITE & GREEN?" No, it does not... but a little pasta on it couldn't hurt!!
Here we offer a beautiful, 100% cotton apron, decorated with wonderful designs of different pasta shapes, long and short. Some, we never knew existed!
This apron even fits Frankie G! It is woven on an oversized loom making it 6 Inches wider than other aprons to provide the perfect fit. Our apron measures 28 by 32 Inches, ties at the waist, and has an adjustable neck strap.
It has a large front pocket to hold cooking essentials: Corkscrew, thermometer, recipe cards, potholders, etc.
Durable and hearty. Machine washable.
After the pizza party or after the bread baking - when your oven is slowly cooling down - that's when this beautiful Pentola enters the scene. Cook dried beans, short ribs, soup, stews, anything that requires low and slow.
Terracotta is an ancient method of cooking, and ideal for cooking slow and at low temperatures. It encourages an exchange of flavors, enhances aromas and imparts special taste to food by distributing heat in a uniform and gradual way.
Made in Italy, these pots show individual characteristics of very fine "cracks" called "crazing" or "veining." This is not a defect, but a characteristic of flame resistant terracotta, allowing for the micro-vapors of steam to be released evenly into the food during cooking.
Measuring 9" tall and 11.5 inches at its widest point, this deep red cooking vessel is the classic Italian "dutch oven".
This method of cooking has been used for producing some of the most delectable and delicious cuisine in Italy since before early Roman times. And as we all know the Italians certainly know a thing or two about excellent food. Terracotta pots for stew, bean, sauce, potato, bread and roasting pots for meats and veggies.
Make pasta in the traditional way, use a troccolaturo!
A troccolaturo is a small pasta rolling pin/cutter. It's the classic tool of the pastaio as well as one's "Nonna". The idea is to make fresh pasta, roll the pasta in 12-inch sheets, then roll the troccolaturo over the sheet. This cuts the pasta sheet into long pasta shapes like spaghetti, pappardelle, fettuccine, and tagliatelle.
We have several pasta shapes to choose from:
Set of ALL FOUR!
Made of beachwood, this pasta rolling pin/cutter is 12.75" long and fits your hands perfectly. FG pizza imports these pasta tools and they are made in Italy.
Leave it to the Italians, for simplicity and functionally simple designs. This ball-forming tool is made in Italy and assists your speed in creating arancini and meatballs in similar portion sizes. Promoting even cooking and consistent serving sizes.
Imported and made in Italy, these forming scissors measure 7 inches long, and 2.5 inches at their widest point. They are made of aluminum and each scooping section has "exit holes" to allow for over flow, making a 1.75 inch ball.
This is the Italian cherry you have been looking for!
Toschi is famous for their Amarena Cherries. Today, just as sixty years ago, only the very best black Amarena Cherries are carefully selected, stoned and sweetened as a garnish for desserts, cakes, ‘semifreddo’, cannoli and cocktails.
Once the cherries are finished, it is possible to use the syrup for Italian sodas, cocktails, ice lollies, milkshakes, etc.
1 kg, Imported from Italy.
Looking for Cannoli forms to go with these cherries? We have them! Cannoli Forming Tubes?
We have been searching for this item and ultimately partnered with local craftsmen who makes these Mattarelli exclusively for FG Pizza & Italian. We've collaborated to produce a very high quality replication of the Tuscan pasta tool, and we are very proud. Production is limited to our craftsman's availability. If we are out of stock, please ask to be on our waiting list and we will get you one.
Turned from solid maple to a width of 1 7/8" wide in diameter, the mattarello allows the pastaiolo to "feel" the roll, with enough weight to help roll the pasta to a beautiful, almost translucent, 1/8-inch thick.
The length of each pin is 39 inches long, including a knobbed end for hanging, allowing for the traditional wide roll of pasta. Perfect for rolling out pasta to make into long cuts (fettuccine, tagliatelle, linguine, pappardelle, etc.) and ideal for the large wide roll to make cappellini, tortellini, etc.
Rolling pasta with this pin is not only a tradition, but an art. Egg pasta is made by hand then allowed to rest for 30 minutes to 24 hours (in the refrigerator). The rested pasta is then rolled to a 1/8" thickness by artfully flattening a single layer, and classically overlapping layers for a traditional and functional roll of all layers. The soft-pointed end of our mattarello allows freshly rolled sheets of pasta to easily slide off the pin during rolling, without "catching" and tearing on a "blocked" rough edge.
One should not wash the mattarello with water. It may be wiped with a damp cloth and thoroughly dried before putting away. We suggest hanging the mattarello by its knob to prevent warping. Store in a cool, clean, dry place.
We will be adding a video shortly.

This is the classic wooden ravioli rolling pin just like the one my grandmother used to use and I still use today. It makes nice small squares of ravioli.
The process goes like this:
Roll out a sheet of dough, spread filling on the right half of the pasta, then fold the left half of the dough over the filling to sandwich the filling between the pasta.
To make ravioli, dust the filled-pasta sheet liberally and roll with rolling pin. THAT'S IT!
Rolling pockets will make ravioli cuts of 1.5" x 1", with 4 rows of 10 ravioli pockets per row. The barrel is 18" long and 2.5" in diameter plus the handles. Total length is 23.5". MADE IN ITALY
The bowl diameter is 10 1/2" and stands 3 1/8" tall. The reason this type of bowl is used is because the shape is perfect, and the enamel coating cooks the pasta crust perfectly.

Each Timpano bowl comes with the recipe for "Timpano alla Big Night" and cleaning instructions.
