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.

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 pappardelle, fettuccine, and tagliatelle.
We have several pasta shapes to choose from:
Set of ALL THREE!

A great classic pasta tool. Traditionally this is used to cut pasta or dough for filled pastries and latticework pie tops and creates the traditional ZigZag design to the edges of Ravioli.
Also known as a "jagger" to English bakers, it can also be used to cut cracker dough into squares with a pretty fluted edge.
To see the cutter in action, check out our Christmas Ravioli Video
Timpano. What is it? It is the grand pasta drum filled with goodies, made famous by the movie Big Night, (written by Stanley Tucci and Joseph Tropiano - Directed by Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott)

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. Our Timpano bowls are created by baking porcelain-enamel onto the surface of a high quality steel bowl. It meets both FDA as well as California Food Safety regulations. This is a great item! Each Timpano bowl comes with the recipe for "Timpano alla Big Night" and cleaning instructions.

When one uses the right tool for the right job, it makes life a whole lot easier. Well this is the right tool.
This professional pizza cutter is truly high quality. The size is substantial and it makes pizza night fun because clean up is easy.
Those cheap wooden-handle pizza cutters just don't cut it (sorry for the "pun"). They don't last and they're made cheap for "home use". These professional cutters are sturdy and offer a smooth roll as you slice your pie. Furthermore, after a big pizza night... it's nice that these can be thrown right into the dishwasher.
These cutters have a 4" rolling blade and should be the last one that you buy, since the blades can be sharpened and the cutting wheels are replaceable, if needed.
4" Stainless Steel blade, great "thumb-guard" design. If you would like to see it in action, check it out in the Pizza Cutters 101 video located on our FG Instructional Videos page.
Made in America
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
