Mozzicato Bakery’s secret ingredient: Love

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Mozzicato Bakery is the place to get a real taste of Italy, baking fresh goods everyday. Their key ingredient is love.

“The Italian population is spreading all over, it’s not concentrated on Franklin Avenue the way it used to be,” said Luigi Mozzicato, better known as Gino.

“People, they went to school, they went here and there, so they spread out. On the occasion they come back to Franklin Avenue,” he said. “I see people come back from California, from Arizona, Boston, and New York. They remember, they come back to Franklin Avenue because they remember grandma and grandpa, the cousins and aunt. They say they remember “my Nonna,” which means grandma, ‘oh, she used to do this for me, she used to do that.”More Italian in Connecticut:

“It’s me and my wife, we started in the ’70’s. We have three kids, they are in the business with me,” said the baker. “I have come and for me nowadays they being their son, and now they come with their grandson. They take a number, sometimes they get 100 people in the front, they get a number, they go outside. They come and get a cappuccino, espresso, and then they go back again.”

“We put in all the love and passion we do because it’s something we like, we’re proud to be good.
