The brainchild of husband and wife Tommaso and Luisa, Amaranto food truck was established in 2018 to bring authentic, excellent, gluten-free Italian food to the street of Auckland.
Pasta is at the heart of every Italian family, so after Luisa discovered a gluten intolerance, Tommaso set his mind into finding a pasta recipe that was gluten-free, yet tasty and with a great texture. It took a little over year of hard work and determination, but he was able to give Luisa the ultimate present of having tasty pasta back into her life, what more could a woman ask for! Amaranto is now on a food truck mission to share that gift and demonstrate that gluten free food can be just as tasty and delicious as “normal” food, if not better! Here at Amaranto food truck fresh, seasonal and free range ingredients are at the base of our preparations and everything is made from scratch. Where possible we use Italian and organic ingredients to maintain the most authentic flavour. Our recipes are a taste of family tradition with the innovation of being completely gluten-free. A medley of Piedmont, Marche and Campania, the three Italian Regions that mostly influenced Tommy’s cooking. We are passionate about creating one of Aucklands best food trucks by providing healty quick food that tastes amazing.
Our home base is in Wellsford, but we do travel in the Matakana area and we pop up all around Auckland! Make sure to follow us on Instagram or Facebook to keep updated on our whereabouts.

Tommy is from Pesaro, a little city (little for Italy that is) on the East coast of Italy, while Luisa is from Torino in the beautiful land of Piemonte. Growing up in Italy, food was at the core of every Italian home. Preparing and eating food was a ritual, a way for families to express love and bring people together.  Our own childhoods are filled with memories of helping our Nonna’s roll out fresh pasta while our family and neighbours gathered to share stories and food in the long summer afternoons.
