In the late 1970’s, while Bob Falcioni was visiting relatives in Montreal, he visited an Italian pasta store. From this trip, the idea for Angela’s Pasta and Cheese Shop was born. Realizing that Manchester did not have any stores like this, Bob gave the idea to his three daughters – Angela, Elaine, and Linda, and they started the business in 1980 in a small store on Union Street in Manchester. Fourteen years later, in 1994, the business had outgrown its location and Angela’s Pasta and Cheese Shop moved to its current location in the heart of the north end of Manchester. On any given day you will still find Angela, Elaine, and/or Linda at the store.
