Michael Feno, Lucca Ravioli Company



Michael Feno's family has owned Lucca Ravioli Company since 1925. Michael’s Great Uncle Francesco Stangalini came to San Francisco in the 1920s to look for work and eventually bought the existing ravioli company that produced pasta at this location in the Italian suburb that became the Mission District. Ever since, Lucca Ravioli has remained a family owned business and Michael started working at the shop in 1966, at the age of 11. We learn about Italian cuisine, how Lucca sources their ingredients and remains authentic to current Italian flavors, and hear Michael tell us how the Mission has changed over the decades.Music by Ben Sound.
