Bombolo Biscotti began with two Italian baking masters, who believed that the people of Southwest Florida would so enjoy the flavors from authentic Italian biscotti recipes.
The company, Sotto I Trulli, Inc., is now just over a year old. The name means “Under the Trulli,’ making reference to the white stone houses topped with gray slate cone-shaped roofs, called Trulli, in a town near Puglia, the childhood home of our founders. We are a wholesale bakery. Currently, we have distribution from Tampa to Miami. We’re looking to expand throughout Florida. As we grow, we expect to distribute to retailers and restaurants along the east coast and nationally.
Meet the Baker
From Bari to Bologna to Sarasota, Florida, Chef Francesco Mucci has been creating culinary delights in our town since his arrival in 2001. The wholesale bakery was the vision of Chef Francesco and his longtime friend Andriani Cosmo. Chef Francesco has been baking his entire adult life and even attracted notice in 1996 in the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Largest Cake. One of his favorite pastimes is baking for charities, especially those helping sick children.
Our facility has recently moved to 1249 Tallevast Road at the north end of Sarasota. We are set up to offer only wholesale service, but we invite anyone to come and tour the facility and take home a sample box of freshly baked biscotti. The aroma alone is worth stopping in.
As you may know, the word “biscotti” in Italy refers not only to the crunchy dipping biscotti, but “biscotti” also includes fine Italian cookies made fresh with care from wholesome ingredients, such as eggs, butter, flour and sugar. Bombolo Biscotti produces a variety of favorites. We bake at least 29 kinds of cookies, and yes, it’s hard to choose just one. These are most often enjoyed with a good cup of coffee or espresso.
