The story of Aversa’s Italian Bakery begun when Ralph Aversa was born in a little town in St. Catarina, in Calabria Italy. He grew up on the family farm milking cows and using the fresh milk to make mouth-watering mozzarella cheese. This was just the beginning of Ralph Aversa’s passion for fresh foods. At a very young age, he was intrigued by the inner workings of dough and how it seemed to “be alive” while he watched it rise and expand as he learned and perfected his bread making skills.

Years later, when he came to Philadelphia, he was fortunate enough to work in Cacia’s Bakery in South Philadelphia. Years of hard work pass, he marries into the family and is able to move to New Jersey to follow Aversa’s dream.

With the help of one employee, Aversa’s Bakery started as a one-room operation selling bread, pizza and Stromboli. As the times changed, so did the bakery. Servicing larger companies and multiplying customers, Aversa’s has grown to accommodate. You’ll find hundreds of products imported straight from Italy, homemade breads, pastries, prepared foods, and gift baskets all made on the premises!
