Pasta and Sauces

Our range of fresh pasta, dry pasta and sauces reflects our passion for Italian cuisine.
Sensibus is half Italian, and the pasta is definitely the symbol of Italian cuisine par excellence, together with as its sauces and seasonings. The reason why Italy is considered one of the best producers of pasta in the world is that apart from being good at cooking it, we are very good at eating it! That's why we choose producers with extreme accuracy and we personally taste the pasta before offering it to our customers. The quality, texture, porosity, thickness of the sheet are all essential elements in first quality pasta.

We can recognize its quality just looking at it, touching it, cooking it and stirring it using wooden spoons with care no to spoil it. We know how to dress and serve it, we can recognize its consistency even before tasting it.
We are able to control every stage of the production of our pasta, from the choice of meal to the packaging, which won't be the same for paccheri, spaghetti, vermicelli or stuffed tortelloni.
This awareness makes us consider each type a unique variety of pasta and not just the same stuff with different shapes.

There are things one can learn about pasta only by cooking it: it's the experience that allows you to know exactly how to cook it properly, how to check its quality and how to bring out its natural deliciousness by adding some simple ingredients. If you feel you are a true connoisseur of pasta, this the right place for you.


Tasting is a ritual of senses, where sight and smell combine with taste to create an authentic gustatory experience. The ritual takes place in several stages, in order to reach a climax imparting the essayer the true awareness of the experience of tasting.

How do we check the quality of pasta?
Once the pasta is cooked, respecting the cooking times, it must be poured into a dish without any seasonings to observe the typical straw-yellow color and to check the sweet smell of wheat while it is still very hot. We do this and much more before offering our customers a product which represents Italy in the world.
