It all started in 1933 at the repeal of prohibition when Joe Ilvento, an immigrant from Grassano, Italy, opened Ilvento’s Restaurant in Jersey City. Joe’s son, Pete became well known for his wonderful tomato sauces. Now, Pete’s son and granddaughter, Joe and Juliana, continue the Ilvento’s tradition by doing a small batch production of these classic Southern Italian style sauces. This product is hand made, bottled and labeled assuring the highest standards. 80 years of Sunday dinners later, we hope you enjoy this traditional family recipe!
