Love is all you need… Piccolini is where you come to find it.
Meet Piccolini… love for the little ones
Our spirit comes from growing up where special occasions meant home-made sweets and beautiful gifts inspired by love for the little things.
At Piccolini, we believe that treasures are in the details. A favorite dress is passed down to a little sister... a fuzzy stuffed monkey is a comfort a little boy can't sleep without. We’ll help make memories with gifts you can't wait to give and your loved ones can't wait to receive.
Gift-giving has always been so special and important, and we’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. It’s our turn to give back something sweet to the neighborhood.
Come spread the LOVE because “love is all you need”.
Alexandra Zagami comes from a line of sweet entrepreneurs; Grandfather Sonny was the owner of Little Italy’s Savoia Bakery, and her parents opened Made In Heaven Cakes when she was a little girl. She always knew she wanted to continue the tradition by bringing something sweet of her own to the table.
Ten years of retail made her realize that the children's gifting business is what really makes her heart smile. From the goodies on the shelves to the very colors of the walls, her influences came from her family. Perfecting gift-giving from a young age, she's always been inspired by her Aunt Fran's thoughtfully wrapped gifts, and Piccolini's palette reflects the colors in Grandpa Sonny’s Italian seven-layer cookie (her favorite!).
With roots in the neighborhood, there was no place was more suitable than Mulberry Street. When not at the shop, Alex can be found cheering on The Yankees and living for the thrill of Madison Square Garden beating beneath her feet. She is thankful for pumpkin pie, The Beatles and Jay-Z , and her wonderfully supportive loved ones. She is also so very thankful she’s been given this gift of an opportunity… one that lets her keep on giving.
