I Love Italia Founder, Giovanni Seminara, left Milan in 2011. He travelled to the UK ready to learn English and explore the UK. He arrived with a lot of enthusiasm and a pasta machine - a gift from his beloved Mamma Maria. Her parting words were “Giovanni, you need to make sure you always have good pasta”.
Arriving in England Giovanni quickly discovered that the high quality foods he enjoyed back home in Milan were not easily available and that is where his vision for I Love Italia began.
Giovanni and the I Love Italia team work with the very best small producers across Italy to source the finest Italian food. We select artisan suppliers who continue to work to recipes and methods passed on through generations, proud of their Italian heritage and a true passion for high quality flavours and ingredients. The perfect partners!
These days, I Love Italia supplies independent Farm Shops, Delis and Food Distributors throughout the UK and further across the world. Delivering the very finest authentic Italian products, from pasta sauces packed full of natural ingredients through to the finest dried pastas, sweet treats, savoury delights, mouth-watering olives, wonderful wines and more.
The treasured pasta maker holds pride of place in Giovanni’s kitchen, where it’s still used as he teaches his wife Camilla and two daughters how to make real Italian pasta.
Of course, if he doesn’t have the time he knows exactly where to get the very best, authentic, Italian pasta – I Love Italia!
