About us

We stake everything on this, including our family name. For us there's no better form of quality certification than this.

The Company

We may be a business, but our name alone, i.e. “Nino and friends“, reveals our clear desire to present ourselves as a big family, a group of friends who share one single passion, that for things that are good, simple and authentic.

The “friends” are the suppliers of our raw materials and all those other products we offer. To us they’re friends rather than just partners.
We like to know their histories, to watch how their products become a reality, to discover them and to taste them… They are all people who share our philosophy of paying careful attention to quality and respecting our local area, its history and the culture of Italian food and wine.

Our idea of ​​”Made in Italy” consists of: selecting the best our land has to offer, enhancing it and presenting it in an authentic way to those “guests” that visit our retail outlets.

History

Our family history is one of simple folk. We love our land and we have always worked hard to create good things to eat and drink.

The smell of lemons, of chocolate and of sweet things that we encounter every day in our production facilities reminds us of that same smell that in the spring once permeated our kitchens when we were children. History is made of this too. We just love to make it possible for anyone entering our retail outlets in Sorrento and Capri to experience this every day. We like to bring it to life through the flavours of our products. Wherever you may be.

Everything that is “thought up” and produced, still using traditional methods in our production facilities located in the very centre of Sorrento, is created to enhance and promote the local area and to transmit, in an instant, through its flavour, all the sensations that one experiences along the alleyways, the citrus groves and the seafront of ​​Sorrento.

Mission

Our Mission: “to offer good, simple products of the highest quality that contain within them the flavours and aromas of our land.”

Our motto is: “Goodness is created starting with simplicity.”

Our commitment is: “a respect for the local area is at the heart of all our quality products that are healthy and authentic.”

And then there’s one simple rule: “We do not produce, nor do we offer anything to our customers that we cannot recreate or use in our own kitchen,” in other words everything is: JUST SIMPLY GOOD.

The only way of achieving all of this is by carefully and meticulously selecting our products and suppliers. We have refused to take the easier option and we have turned our back on semi-finished products, preservatives, colourants and adulteration.

We want to know the history that lies behind every product that enters our production facility and our retail outlets in order to be sure of the quality that we offer.

What we care about is that everything is strictly “Made in Italy”. This is the only way we can offer a handcrafted product that has a genuinely authentic taste. As though it were homemade. Indeed, it is homemade.
