SS - Buitoni Restaurant, New York

Guilia Buitoni started one of the first pasta factories in Italy in 1827. Her great-grandson, Giovanni Buitoni, was involved with both pasta and chocolate manufacture in Italy. In 1939, he came to the United States to represent the Italian candy industry at Hershey Chocolate's thirtieth anniversary celebration. While in New York, he opened a Buitoni Restaurant in the Italian Building at the New York World's Fair. That was followed by two other restaurants in New York.

The Buitoni pasta brand is now owned by Nestlé. For the latest information on Buitoni products, see
