Established in 1905, the Fratelli Mantova brand is a family legacy. Preparing and sharing authentic Italian food with the world has been the Mantova family mission for generations.
Il Mantova, the Mantova family restaurant in Italy, sits on the edge of Lago di Posta. This picturesque lake is part of a nature reserve located about an hour and a half drive from either Rome or Naples. The family restored a 16th century villa to become home to the restaurant. Quintessential Italian cuisine is not the only reason diners love Mantova dishes. Guests are enthralled by the ancient traditions kept alive by the family, such as cooking with produce from local farmers and fish caught by local fisherman. A 500-year-old outdoor cooling house kept food, fish and game suitably chilled for centuries before the invention of electricity.
About Fine Italian Food
Our family business is proud to import the finest Italian food from Italy and to be the exclusive provider of the Mantova brand in the US for over 20 years.
Italian food is beautiful and delicious in its simplicity. The highest quality fresh and natural ingredients are the foundation of each dish. Our imported Italian foods are grown naturally, produced with traditional methods and packaged fresh in Italy. We make it easy to cook healthy, flavorful dishes with staple ingredients for Italian meals, such as olive oil, balsamic vinegars, tomato sauces, toppings, condiments, and pasta. And of course, our prefect Italian meal isn’t complete without lingering over hot coffee or espresso with cookies and candy.
We may not have time every day to cook an elaborate Italian meal. Sometimes we don’t even have time for pizza or pasta. It’s those days that we turn to our flavored oils, balsamic vinegars and sauces. Switch out a regular oil, salad dressing or sauce for a choice from Mantova, and you’ll feel like you’re sitting in a friend’s Italian kitchen.
Mantova, our flagship brand, is family-owned in Italy. The family’s old-world attention to detail and refined palate ensure utmost quality. The Mantova family is renowned for impeccable taste selection and blending. Customers tell us Mantova tastes superior to anything else.
