Yes, there really is a Lilly.

Lilly D’Alelio came to the United States twenty years ago from Milan, Italy, with an idea to make the best and the healthiest pasta. She started making pasta in a small store in Everett, Massachusetts. Her son, Antonio AKA “The Pastaman”, joined her and together they have grown into one of the finest and best known pasta manufacturers in the greater Boston area. Lilly still works long days and has created an extensive selection of all natural pastas. There are 29 different shapes and 60 various fillings. All pastas are made at the state-of-the-art, federally approved manufacturing facility in Everett. Lilly still oversees the making of the pasta in order to maintain the same quality and consistency that have been her trademark for the last twenty years.

Meet the Pastaman

I grew up in Italy and lived in many of it's cities, until my parents decided to come to America and move the family to Boston. We arrived in Boston in 1986, and 4 months later started a pasta company called Lilly's Gastronomia Italiana. Like every Italian kid raised with the "hard work first and work even harder later" kind of mentality, I would go down to the pasta factory to go work everyday after practice. There, I would learn something new from my mom about how to run the business. As far as personal experience, after working in the factory for 10 years, (from making pasta to expediting and delivering orders around Massachusetts), I eventually moved on to being the Company's sales person. In 2001 (to gain extra experience), I started a 2 year professional chef program at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, going into business shortly after graduation. Now, 15 years later I started a fresh pasta concept, which today is our franchise business, Lilly's Gourmet Pasta Express.
