Italian Baked Goodies
Castelli’s deli and pastry shop is unique in the Santa Cruz area, because we specialize in authentic Italian pastries, Wedding Cakes, Special Occasion Cakes, Fine Italian Pastries and arranged Cookie Trays. Italian pastry desserts are similar to French pastries. They consist of light, flaky dough that is baked or fried. Some Italian pastries are filled with pastry cream or light whipped ricotta cheese. The pastries are often dusted with a light coating of confectioner’s sugar. The different types of Italian pastry desserts include the pignolata, pizzelle, cannoli, chiacchiere and bignole.
