Macchina - Pasta Bar

WELCOME TO OUR LITTLE ITALIAN KITCHEN, MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME.

We’re about to share with you all of our secrets.
But first, be advised: the following pictures and explanations might make you extremely hungry!

Story

Back in the industrial revolution days, pasta was the fuel for the human machinery that changed the world. Later on, in New York city, an Italian immigrant invented a machine for Little Italy housewives to be able to make their own fresh pasta.

Almost 100 years later, one of Angelo Vitantonio’s prototypes hits Gracia in a mission to democratize fresh pasta. Inspired by the Italian pioneers of the time, Macchina produces its own fresh pasta daily to keep fueling people who are working to change the world again.

100% PASTA, 100% HOMEMADE

As true Italian mamas, we take pride in making our own fresh pasta with just flour, water and egg. We keep it natural and honest, because that’s what fresh pasta is meant to be, right? You will feel the difference in it’s glorious texture and flavor.  When tasting it.

But, wait …, what will you put on top of it? Keep reading to learn about our homemade sauces and fresh toppings!

100% HOMEMADE SAUCES

Emanuela’s Nonna (Grandma) used to say, “you can’t make good tomato sauce if you don’t use good tomatoes”. Therefore, we only buy the best tomatoes, panna, funghi and everything else, because we aim to make the best sauces you’ll ever taste.

You can never take a sauce for granted. It demands love and dedication. So, we spend long hours by the fire, watching the ingredients give their best to the sauce. Only then we dare to serve them on top of your fresh pasta dish.

100% FRESH FROM THE MARKET

Spending time in the market is as important as the hours you spend in the kitchen -that quote is ours, not our Nonnas’, by the way. So, all of the fresh toppings you can add to your pasta (cherry tomatoes, rucula, mushrooms, bacon, chicken…) come from Gracia’s best markets.

Our Burrata and other Italian specialities are imported directly from Italy. Where else could they come from?

Starters

There’s a wide choice of antipasti for you to enjoy! Premium Burrata, crispy salads, Italian olives, homemade traditional soups… Oh! And our famous pesto toast.
