Welcome to emozioni
“I make art with my desserts,” “Doing desserts is the best way to express myself.”
The Finest Pastry in Santa Cruz
Crescenzo Pelliccia is a native of the southern Italy city of Naples, or “Napoli” as he calls it. He moved to California seven years ago, living and working in Santa Cruz until he landed the job as the executive pastry chef at Dio Deka, a Greek/Hellinic restaurant in Los Gatos. Emozioni represents a long-held dream, to translate the fine art of Italian desserts to a community hungry for it.
Emozioni will be open daily from 10 a.m. to mid-afternoon before Lago di Como opens for dinner.
the patisserie will offer a variety of almost-too-beautiful-to-eat treats, from tarts, pastries, pies, and other goodies from baklava to tiramisu
