Long before Cleveland became a culinary destination, Ohio City Pasta pioneered an uncompromising passion for excellent food. Hand-crafted in small batches since 1990, Ohio City Pasta is celebrated throughout the Midwest by top chefs and food-lovers alike. Made with the highest quality ingredients, perfected techniques, and careful attention to detail, Ohio City Pasta has earned its reputation as the preferred pasta-maker for the professional.
Although production has dramatically increased in the 25 years since owner Gary Thomas launched what was a one-man operation, production methods have remained virtually unchanged. No corners are cut. Nothing is artificial. Ingredients are painstakingly selected and sourced as locally as possible. In the production kitchen, Gary and his team are never content with “good enough."
While Ohio City Pasta does enjoy far-reaching growth, it remains a company with deep roots in Cleveland. Since 1991, it has proudly operated its flagship stand at the Westside Market, a century-old national treasure and the anchor of the Ohio City neighborhood. Meeting the needs of renown regional chefs, participating in citywide sustainability initiatives, sourcing ingredients from local producers—these efforts and many others evidence Ohio City Pasta’s sincere and ongoing commitment to its community.
