Bisnonna Bakeshop Brings Italian Pastries To Tysons Corner Center
Patch, September 2021
"Bisnonna Bakeshop is open in the former Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant patio inside Tysons Corner Center. Owners Nicole and Dom Liberatore opened the home bakery as an ode to their family matriarchs, whose recipes were passed down generations and made by hand. The business specialized in classic Italian pastries, including the signature cannoli rolled, shaped and filled by hand. All items are made to order and made from scratch."
Bisnonna Bakeshop Will Open Soon At Tysons Corner Center
Northern Virginia Magazine, August 2021
"Why is Nicole Liberatore obsessed with cannoli? “Cannoli is that perfect combination of a crispy, crunchy shell and a smooth, creamy filling,” she says. “It’s really just the perfect bite.” And for the baker, who owns Bisnonna Bakeshop with her New Jersey-native husband, Dominick, that fixation has turned into a thriving business. Since late 2019, they’ve run Bisnonna (which means “great-grandmother” in Italian, a dedication to Nicole Liberatore’s own late bisnonna, Phyllis) out of their Annandale home, meeting customers in parking lots for deliveries. That setup is about to change. They’ll open their first storefront, inside Tysons Corner Center, in early September, says Nicole."
