After immigrating from Italy, Pasquale (Patsy) and Maria lived and worked in the Bronx.
Patsy as a baker and Maria as a seamstress. It was always a dream of theirs to open their
own bakery. Patsy was a baker in Italy in his family’s business.
In 1954 they moved to Long Island. Patsy's Italian Bakery was first opened in 1955.
With many recipes from his mother they built one of the first Italian bakeries on Long Island.
Today the bakery is operated by their son Frank.
