Tuesday Evening Cannoli Call

Inspired by his grandmother Grace Viviano Piccione, Richard Nix, Jr. along with his wife Elizabeth brings renewed attention to the Piccione family and their history on Delmar. Piccione, which means pigeon in Italian, is not only a salute to Richard’s family but more importantly to his Italian heritage.
Grace or “Nonna” grew up watching the development of Delmar thriving in its early days as a diverse ethnic neighborhood. When Grace married the young immigrant Paul Piccione in the early 1920’s, it was University City & Delmar where they chose to raise their 4 children (Anita Nix – Nicolas Piccione- Jody Glenn- Peter Piccione) and stake their claim to the American dream. For more than a half century Grace was a pioneer entrepreneur in the independent theater business. Her movie houses included the infamous Apollo on DeBaliviere & the world famous Varsity on Delmar. Grace and her youngest son Peter were incredible personalities and the Varsity was the bedrock in which the “late night Loop” was fueled. Who will ever forget Peter’s idea to release the campy cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show to record numbers of late night movie goers!
Almost 100 years later the same fabric embraces the Delmar Loop, with unparalleled stability west of Skinker and redevelopment east of Skinker, Piccione Pastry is comfortably centered to showcase authentic Italian sweets “late night in the Loop”. Feel content in knowing years of family history has been involved in creating our handmade cannolis, pastries, cakes and cookies…Buon Appetito!
