Flavors of Italy

This shape is typical of the centre of Italy, in particular Rome and surrounding areas. Bucatini are the perfect combination between the long pasta cuts, of which they share the length, and the short pasta cuts, of which they share the central hole. As such, their shape and consistency is perfect to enhance all sauces.


Its relatively thick texture and shape makes it well suited to rich, thick sauces.

Bucatini is best paired with Amatriciana sauce: chopped tomatoes, cubed pancetta and pecorino, for a rustic and delicious dish.
