Who We Are
Biagio Settepani began his career at the age of 13 in a small pastry shop in Brooklyn, New York, spending his next few years learning as much as he could. At the age of 21 took over the reins of Bruno Bakery, a well-known Bakery/Café in New York City. Since then his dedication to excellence has brought him around the world in search of knowledge. He has competed nationally and internationally for over a decade earning him several medals and numerous accolades. In 2001 he became a C.M.B. (certified master baker). He now runs together with his family a retail shops in New York City and Staten Island, and still finds time to share his knowledge by teaching at various schools to the new generations of pastry chefs.
Bruno’s has been a family owned establishment since 1973, where Bruno’s Bakery on LaGuardia Place in NYC was first opened. The Settepani family is committed to providing quality products and service to their customers.
In December 2004 the Settepani family introduces Bruno’s at 1650 Hylan Blvd Staten Island. An authentic modern-day Italian bakery offering the uncommon excellence of Italian and French desserts found in Italy today. This extraordinary elegance has become the signature of the Bruno family.
Bruno’s welcomes families to indulge in a warm dining experience with a full breakfast, lunch or dinner menu, created by our world-renowned chefs.
We specialize in occasion cakes, wedding cakes, catering and in-house parties to make your upcoming event a memorable one. During the holidays, Bruno’s transforms into an ambrosia heaven with New York’s biggest and finest selection of cakes, pastries, cookies, gift baskets and Chef Biagio’s signature Panettone. Bruno’s is the proud home of the “Cake of the Century,” Chocolate Pear Royal, a sumptuous chocolate mousse cake with layers of hazelnut crunch and pear mousse… and the esteemed “Raspear Cake,” that was named best taste.”
We strive in building a family here with our employees, teaching you not only the love of food and pastries, but how to work with each other in making a successful team. The Settepani family welcomes you to their family, good luck!
