From Sicily to Illinois
The Curcuru family- consisting of my grandparents, dad, and aunt- immigrated to the United States from Sicily in the 1960's. They opened a pizza shop in Illinois called Sorrento's Pizzeria that stayed open for over 50 years. Being raised in the pizza shop and in a Sicilian family, my siblings and I were taught the importance of family, tradition, and eating really good food (lots of it)!
Back to Sicily
In 2017, I decided to buy a one-way ticket to Sicily because I wanted to get more in touch with my roots. I spent a year working on farms, milking cows, picking olives, harvesting grapes, and completely immersing myself in the Sicilian culture. I also fell in love with the classic Sicilian pastry known as "cannoli." Determined to learn how to make them from scratch, I visited local pastry shops and learned all of the "secrets" from my Sicilian relatives.
Nonna Anna's Legacy
Nonna Anna, my grandma and the matriarch of the Curcuru family, was very passionate about serving others, making good food, and remembering her Sicilian roots. After Nonna passed in 2018, I decided to start The Tony Cannoli in an effort to keep her spirit alive.
In 2022, my wife, Emma, and I moved to the Boise, Idaho area to continue my family tradition of serving good food to people (when we're not making cannoli, find us serving acai bowls on my wife's food truck - Just BEE Acai. Check her out!) We invite you to stop by our cannoli cart, introduce yourself, and enjoy some sweet Sicilian treats with a loved one. That's what Nonna would want!
Family, Italy, and cannoli...
The cannoli cart won’t be out until May, but in the meantime you can place a private order!
