About
Let us introduce you to authentic Italian gelato made fresh each day from the finest seasonal ingredients. We are from Turin in Italy and we handcraft our gelato and sorbetto in-house using the traditional Italian churning method 'mantecazione'. Our gelato is made using fresh, non-homogenised milk and cream from a single herd of rare breed Red Poll cows from Belvoir Ridge Creamery in Leicestershire. Our sorbetto is dairy free, made only with fresh, seasonal fruit. We never use artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives. Flavours change daily according to availability and seasonality of the raw ingredients. We also offer a wide range of hot and cold drinks, waffles and Italian cakes and

Purchased a waffle and one scoop of ice cream and felt there was little depth in the quality of the ice cream. Furthermore, the service was poor with little engagement and enthusiasm.

We each had three flavors and the dark chocolate and orange was some of the best I have tasted anywhere in the world. We only just timed it right as they open at 3pm in winter.More
