The Ottomanelli family has been making grandma’s spaghetti sauces for over 100 years. It has taken the last five to perfect a bottled version that tastes as good as the original.

The Ottomanelli Brothers explain: “We had no way of knowing what tomatoes the commercial packer used, or if they added sugar or preservatives. In our sauce, everything is natural. Commercial packers use preservatives that lengthen shelf life. Their clients demand long life. But preservatives affect flavor.

“You’d be surprised how tricky it is to put grandma’s sauces in our Mason Jar-like bottles, a bottle that, not just incidentally, reminds customers that we are using a process that is seen in movies about home canning dating back to the Great Depression”

“We pride ourselves on grandma’s flavor. We were unable to perfect our sauces until we went through a very lengthy procedure.

We only sell in our store at 1549 York Avenue Corner of 82nd Street. We also ship via our website at http://www.ottomanellibros.com. Shelf life is not an issue for us. We make the sauce weekly to meet growing demand.”

Try our sauces. We think you agree with our customers. They tell us there is no comparing the start-from-scratch flavor of grandma’s sauces and the name brands.”
