Realizing baking was his ultimate passion, Gianni turned his home kitchen into a mini-bakery when he was 15 years old. His desire to learn the finest techniques and innovations in preparing Italian pastries led him to an internship with some of Monza's most influential bakers.
After suffering severe injuries from an unfortunate motorcycle accident, Gianni began working for his mentor and friend, Chef Luzzara at Pasticceria Luzzara. While there, Gianni embarked on earning a Master Pastry Chef degree from the Milan Culinary Institute.

To him, customer satisfaction is most important, thus providing a relaxing environment in his bakery where patrons gather to socialize and savor his masterful desserts.
