About Us

Food and family. Food and love. Food and fun.

La Piana family photoThese are things that have always gone hand in hand in our Italian family. We are from Trento, Italy, where I and my sister, Elena, and brother, Emanuele, grew up surrounded by our extended family of many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Some of our favorite memories revolve around family meals, particularly Sunday lunch at our grandma’s house. Thirty people would fill her tiny apartment for a sit-down meal. It was loud, fun, and relaxed. 

Today, we bring an authentic Italian dining experience to the U.S. by importing foods that are traditional in different regions throughout Italy. These are products we love to eat ourselves from producers we know very well. Picking a new product is a lot of work because it needs to be fresh, authentic, and absolutely must taste good. We believe simple is better, and we look for food that has the most natural ingredients possible. Because so many of us lead busy lives, our products are designed to make everyday meals easy and delicious. 

Family meals are still an important time of day for us. It La Piana family photois the time when we gather together to talk about our day and what is going on in our lives. We invite you to bring an authentic Italian experience to your table with La Piana Italian Foods. Please share your experience with our foods and what you create for your family meals by emailing us or by connecting with us on Facebook. We are always glad to hear from our customers.
