Owner Larry Lagattuta founded Enrico Biscotti bakery, featuring bread and biscotti, in 1993,[1] he had previously been an account executive with Lucent Technologies.[1] A few years later, the offerings were expanded to include pizzas and cappuccino.[1] Owner Lagattuta offers an occasional class in bread baking.[3]

In 2003, a second location was opened in Shadyside neighborhood.[4][5] Unlike the original bakery/cafe, the Shadyside location is more of a restaurant.[6]

In 2010, a third location opened in Highland Park neighborhood;[7] the unintentional grand opening occurred during the February 9–10, 2010 North American blizzard, with the cafe serving as a soup kitchen for the snowed-in neighbors.[7]
