La Pagnotta


Italians identify the word pagnotta with a round shaped loaf of bread. A very ancient Italian saying states that “oggi ho guadagnato la mia pagnotta” or “today I have earned my pagnotta” – (referred to as the daily bread). The founder of La Pagnotta Italian Bakery & Café, Mr Fernando (Nando) De Maria, is originally from Rome, Italy. As a young boy, he was involved in the bread & pizza industry there, and, after his wedding in 1967, he emigrated to Toronto, Canada, where, together with his elder brother, established La Romana Bakery in 1976.
