PASTIFICIO PAOLO ATTI & FIGLI
Food & Drink | Food Shops | Pasta
One of the best things could happen to you while walking into the narrow streets in Bologna, is to lose yourself and then... arrive in this old traditional shop: the Pastificio Paolo Atti & Figli.
Here, you can taste a good overview of Bologna's cooking, from salami to cheese, from bakery to pasta... and obviously the tortellini, the typical pasta, you can cook with broth (according the tradition) or with béchamel, prosciutto and boiled peas.
The famous "Navel of Venus” tortellini, historical specialty which is a symbol of Bologna and its tasty cuisine around the world, are still made as they were long ago and packaged in the original art-nouveau box.
They are stuffed with the Bolognese “DOC” filling described in the recipe submitted to the Chamber of Commerce and the Academy of Cuisine by the Confraternita del Tortellino: pork loin, ham, Bolognese mortadella, Parmesan cheese, chicken eggs, nutmeg.
This story come so far: since 1880, Paolo Atti & Figli produces bread as well as sweet and savoury delicacies for gourmets in Bologna and elsewhere.
The shop in Via Drapperie 6 represents the old heart of the business that was founded in early 1800, and its original signs can still be seen.
Over the years the business has expanded, without losing the original philosophy based on quality and the search for the best product.
In addition to the shop in Via Drapperie, the company opened a big selling point in via Caprarie in early 1900.
For being run by the same family since its foundation, keeping intact the original furnishings of the two shops and still being a meeting place for representatives of culture and gastronomy, the Atti company was admitted to the prestigious Associazione dei Locali Storici d'Italia (Association of historical establishments in Italy).
