The story of Frankie's Old World Biscotti begins in the hills of Calabria in 1592, with a sacred family recipe. Biscotti were part of a local wedding custom, and made with only the freshest black anisette, sun roasted almonds, stone ground flour, and other homegrown flavors. Priests blessed the dough before baking in a brick oven, a process that took three days. The result was biscotti softer in texture, and unlike those made commercially today. We are so happy to carry on our family's tradition and present our biscotti to you - they are made with love, heart, and the soul of Old Calabria.
In addition to the original biscotti, our bakery has grown, and we now produce and sell to the public a vast variety of cookies, pastries, cakes, and breads. In addition, we have a full TAKEOUT lunch menu, inspired by Frankie’s Calabrese Nonna.
As soon as Covid restrictions are lifted, we will resume offering dinner and professional entertainment on Thursday nights and most weekends.
In the meantime, please see our calendar for upcoming mini shows, live streamed over Facebook.
It is truly a pleasure to offer the community a place to enjoy wonderful baked goods, Italian cuisine and the finest entertainment. Please join us here at the happiest place in the valley.
Frankie and Luca
