Having spent most of our childhood summers in Italy, we would relish the moment, at the crack of dawn, where fresh cornetti (plural for cornetto) were delivered to our aunt’s cafe in Pescara. This marked the beginning of “La Colazione” or breakfast. As we bit into the fragrant and flaky golden dough, we savoured the delectable custard or jam filling.
Little did we know that these memories of our Italian holidays, lounging around and enjoying fresh, oven-baked cornetti, were the beginning of a delicious adventure!
Upon our meeting Stefano, a talented Florentine baker, we knew it was finally time to bring this wonderful Italian tradition to Montreal. We wanted to introduce Il Cornetto to friends and customers alike, as well as to satisfy our own personal cravings!
Since our opening, we have continued our quest in bringing modern Italian specialties as well as timeless traditional delicacies to Montreal. We continue to develop a full line of artisanal products made fresh, in-house and ready to enjoy every day at our pasticceria in Little Italy, or in the comfort of your own homes, surrounded by family and friends.
