CRANFORD - Pastosa Ravioli, the third-generation, family-owned and operated Italian specialty food company widely recognized as the source of New York’s finest ravioli, fresh pasta and Italian specialties celebrates its five-year anniversary in the Cranford community.    

Located at 200 South Avenue East in Cranford, Pastosa delivers a full line of high quality, affordable Italian specialty products, fresh pasta, cheeses and meats, and offers an expansive catering menu. Pastosa has grown from a Brooklyn landmark to a household name throughout the New York Metropolitan area.  

“We are so proud to be a part of the Cranford community and as we celebrate these five years, we feel so fortunate to have so many loyal customers. We work hard to bring only the best quality products to our customers, which is in keeping with my grandfather’s proven formula. Before he opened the first Pastosa in 1966, he was a successful salesman for Polly-O who was passionate about the quality products he sold and committed to delivering unmatched customer service. We’re proud to carry on his legacy,” said co-owner Anthony Ajello.
