About Gabriella’s Kitchen

Italian sisters Gabriella and Margot Micallef founded the company now known as Gabriella’s Kitchen to create nutritious and delicious foods that everyone could enjoy, regardless of their dietary preferences or restrictions. Naturally, they started with pasta! Using fresh, high-quality ingredients and an original artisanal Italian pasta machine, they created skinnypasta™, allowing everyone to Love Pasta Again™. In 2009, the sisters began commercializing their non- traditional pasta and, in 2015, the company was renamed Gabriella’s Kitchen in honour of Margot’s late sister, who remains the inspiration behind the company.
