Our Story

Alessi Bakery is a true Tampa landmark dating back over a century to 1912, making it one of the few historic restaurant establishments in the area. Situated at 2909 W. Cypress Street Alessi, Bakery was first opened on Cherry Street by Nicolo Alessi. He arrived in Tampa from Italy over a hundred years ago, bringing his knowledge of baking and proud European heritage with him. Nicolo Alessi used to deliver the freshest Italian and Cuban bread on horse and wagon to his customers. Nicolo’s son John Alessi, continued his father’s tradition of baking, and he received numerous awards for his cake decorating. Those very same cake recipes have been perfected over the years and these cakes are well-known all over the Tampa Bay area for their personalized touch for weddings or any milestone event.

 

It has been over 100 years since Alessi Bakery’s first inception in 1912. Nicolo’s insistence on quality, hard-work, consistency and customer service inherited by 4 generations has been their perfect recipe for success. Their love, experience, and knowledge have made the Alessi family bakery the most successful and well-known bakery in Tampa offering the finest baked goods, wedding cakes and catering in the Tampa Bay area.
