We're glad you asked! Gelato is really the Italian word for 'frozen' but the Italians use it to refer to their fabulous version of ice cream. Gelato is made primarily with milk instead of cream and is kept at a warmer temperature than American ice cream so that the flavors are more intense.
Our gelato is genuinely 'artiginale' or artisan-made. This meant that instead of buying a pre-made base, we make our gelato from scratch, using fresh dairy products. The flavor are created using premium ingredients, like cage-free eggs; fresh, seasonal produce and pistachio paste from the town of Bronte in Sicily (the only place to get pistachios!).
We've spent years in Italy researching the best methods for making gelato and the most delicious flavors. To date we have visited gelaterie in over 20 Italian cities and we're not done yet! We've put a lot of thought into your gelato!
