Our business started over a quarter of a century ago because our family could not find a commercially available sauce that pleased everyone at our dinner table. We took it upon ourselves to research, test and perfect the right blend for our customers, friends and family. Due Amici still sources its San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, grown in the fertile soil near Mount Vesuvius. The natural sea salt is harvested off the coast of Sicily and only the finest vegetables and herbs are hand-picked for its exclusive sauces. Due Amici Sauces are unique and that’s why we want to share them with you.

Our Unique Ingredients
San Marzano Tomatoes
The San Marzano is a plum tomato that is sweeter and less acidic than a Roma tomato. Due Amici still imports its San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, still grown in the fertile soil near Mount Vesuvius.
This culinary herb, also called the “king of herbs” has been prominently highlighted in Italian cuisine for hundreds of years. Basil is featured in many of the Due Amici sauces.
Garlic has been used as a seasoning for thousands of years and it has been used by nearly every civilization. In addition to flavoring numerous dishes, garlic has long been recognized as having health benefits. This may explain why it remains one of the most popular plants for cooking in the world.
Oregano is an aromatic culinary herb and has been eaten in southern Italy for centuries. Fresh oregano has a hearty, woodsy flavor that makes it a favorite of Italian chefs.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is the only cooking oil that is made without the use of chemicals and industrial refining. Extra virgin oil is high in phenolic antioxidants and has many benefits over other types of oils.
This hard, granular cheese is aged an average of two years and has a sharp, savory taste that is a common ingredient in traditional Italian cooking.
A staple in Italian cooking, hot peppers have a sweet and spicy side, making this pepper a delicious additive to our Arrabbiata Sauce.
