CLASSICS

From hazelnut to chocolate, by way of gianduja, pistacchio and crema, with touches of candies fruit and artisanal creams. We work with dairy and alternative milks to create a fully immersive sensory experience into the flavors we aim to honor and sublimate. 


FRUITS

Water and sugar are all that is added to seasonal fruit before transform it into the silk-like mouthfeel that distinguishes our gelato. Selecting fruits at peak ripeness lets us minimize the added sugar. Though most of our fruit flavors are dairy-free, you will not miss the cream.
