Gio’s Pastry Shop brings Italian food culture to the Upstate with brick and mortar location

There is a memory Maria Natale has of when she was younger, and her dad would take her to get a bomboli or sfogliatelle or another Italian pastry from a coffee shop in New Jersey. Even now, decades later, the 38-year-old need simply bite into one of those delectable treats and she is transported to her youth and filled with joy.



Gio's Pastry Shop is now open in Fountain Inn, serving up Italian and Italian American specialties like Sfogliatelle (clamshells), tiramisu, bomboloni (filled doughnuts), biscotti, lemon bars and much more.
