Nadia Caterina Munno, aka The Pasta Queen, was born and raised in Rome – the cradle of the Italian culinary tradition – and now lives in Florida.

Coming from a real pasta dynasty (her family started a pasta factory in Southern Italy in the 1800s), pasta runs in her blood along with her passion for Italian cooking – a passion that Nadia shares through entertaining videos posted on TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook. 

Nadia had been collecting and using Ruffoni cookware for a few years when she joined Instagram and reached out to Giulia: the connection was immediate. A friendship and partnership started, built on our shared love for Italian quality, beauty and great food.
