Egidio Pastry Shop, Belmont, The "Little Italy of the Bronx" , NYC
Egidio Pastry Shop was founded in 1912 by Pasquale Egidio. It is now being run by Carmela Lucciola who was born in Italy and carries on the tradition of the Egidio family, using all their #original recipes for the #Italian #pastries and #cakes. The #neon sign was installed in the 1960s and Carmela always tries to keep it lit. This #bakery is known for their delicious #cannolis, Napoleans and biscotti. We loved how this place glows at night and included it in our book New York Nights along with a full interview with Carmela.
