Today, American families are less likely to sit down for an extended period and relax with a glass of wine and “un pasto perfetto” (a perfect meal). It hasn’t always been this way.
Most Americans share a legacy that, at some point there was one emigre in the family who came to America for a new life or a fresh start. Those ancestors brought over a rich history and strong moral values that made the family the center of everything. No matter where the pioneer hailed from, the old world values dictated that the family who ate together, stayed together.
When owners Candy and Steve met 36 years ago, Candy was the first non-Italian to join the Pozzi family. Candy was encouraged to spend a week in Nana's kitchen learning the family recipes like manicotti, pizzelle, and lasagna. It was not a complex menu but little recipes that were simple to make and fun to eat. The week spent in Nana’s kitchen was one of the Pozzi family’s ways of keeping old world traditions alive and sharing their family values with their newest member.
Candy learned these customs and became part of the family, learning the rich history of Steve’s ancestors and his family’s legacy along the way.
Pozzi Coffee and Wine Bar serves as a testament to the old world Pozzi values, and that family is the core for “un pasto perfetto”. Our cafe is a way to take a piece of the good life from us and make it part of your family.
