Siracusano was born in Catania, Italy. Inspired by his grandmother’s fresh-baked bread, he became a baker by the time he was 15. When Comis entered his shop several years later, it was love at first sight. But her father was dead set against their relationship. The young couple ran away together and had many challenges to overcome on their way to success.

The turning point came when Siracusano tasted pure chocolate for the first time and fell in love with the confection. After he studied with some of the most skilled chocolatiers in the world, the couple created their shop, Cioccolato e Gelato, specializing in gelato and every imaginable form of chocolate delicacy, pastry, and cake.

Their “happy ever after” continues to this day. With their love for one another and their pastry skills and business acumen, they have established Cioccolato e Gelato as one of the premiere artisanal pastry shops in Catania.
