Almost 100 years ago, the humble beginnings of what would become Napoletano Brothers Gourmet Italian Market can be traced back to the hills of Italy in the early 1930s. Domenico Napoletano and his father began by operating a small grain trading business in the region of Abruzzi, about 120 miles due east of Rome. The grain operation slowly developed into a small storefront where nonna Nancy crafted fresh homemade pasta out of simple natural ingredients and love. Her wonderfully delicious recipes for pastas are still used today and enjoyed by all of our customers.
As many Italians did at the time, Domenico moved the family to Argentina in the late 1950s where they continued hand-making pasta in the business district of Buenos Aires. Then in 1965, Domenico with his three sons: Mario, Corrado, and Claudio moved the business with them to the United States where the Springfield based store first opened its doors with the name Springfield Pasta Company. Springfield Pasta has operated as both an Italian Specialty store and wholesale pasta distributor since its beginnings in 1965. The name Napoletano Brothers was born in 2017 to reflect the greatly expanded product offerings of the Italian specialty store over the years (so much more than just pasta!) after its founders, Corrado and Claudio Napoletano. The name Springfield Pasta Company lives on as the wholesale arm of the family run business.
Napoletano Brothers offers a wide selection of authentic Italian delicacies including handmade pastas, cheeses, Pizza Romana, gourmet sandwiches, desserts and a full espresso bar. The Napoletano family prides itself on bringing authentic cuisine rich with tradition from our family to yours.
