Adrian Zenere, a registered architect, established Archizen Architects in 1998. Adrian’s parents were born in Lavis, Trentino-Alto Adige and Caldogno Vicenza, Veneto both northern regions of Italy and immigrated to Australia over 65 years ago. They met in Leichhardt, Sydney and both shared a love of cannoli from the local Italian bakeries and cake shops. Over time they perfected their own family recipes and so with Adrian’s rich Italian heritage it was only natural that he incorporated an authentic Italian cannoli bar in his architectural design studio and share not only his love of architecture & design but also his appreciation of great cannoli!
Amber spent over 10 years working in restaurants and as hotel management for international hotels Hyatt, Hilton and Sheraton both here in Sydney as well as in Auckland, London and New York. Prior to joining Archizen Architects in 2005 Amber spent 10 years working for Qantas Airways as cabin crew and inflight services training. Drawing on her 20 years of airline & hospitality experience and 13 years of business experience plus being immersed in the Italian culture for over 2 decades where she has come to love all things Italian she often says that you don't have to be Italian to appreciate the coffee, food, architecture & design. Like Adrian it just made sense to her to open a cannoli bar in their architectural design studio.........and Piccolo Cannoli Bar, Sydney's First Cannoleria was born!
Being a family business with both their sons Zack and Blake and Nonno Gregorio and Nonna Angelina, all lending a helping hand Adrian and Amber did not want to create just any cannoleria for their customers...they wanted an authentic Italian cannoli bar where the owners care about their customers, where the local community are welcomed and treated like family, where everyone knows your name and they’re always glad you came.
They wanted to create the same experience found in the small pastry shops scattered throughout Venice, Milan and northern Italy from the ornate pressed metal ceilings to the marble counters but within a new contemporary architectural environment. The same kind of cannoli bars Adrian’s parents would frequent when they were younger, the kind that were steeped in history & Italian tradition. Recognising the need for fast friendly 'grab & go' service they consciously designed Piccolo Cannoli Bar for efficiencies and modern day convenience with their busy customer’s 'on-the-go' lifestyles in mind.
Piccolo Cannoli Bar brings authentic artisanal Italian cannoli, arancini and gelati to Sydney's southern suburb of South Hurstville. Supporting local Italian artisan suppliers who use traditional recipes and who share the same ethos, social and environmental responsibility and source only quality ingredients.
Simply Italian, Piccolo Cannoli Bar believes 'amore is in the detail'. Offering authentic Italian cannoli prepared fresh daily using Nonna Angelina's secret ricotta cannoli cream recipe all made with love and care.
