Piccolina is kicking off its summer campaign early this year. They have just announced that they're opening a brand spanking new flagship gelateria on Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn.
Housed in a stunning corner store on the main drag, Piccolina owner and chief gelato officer, Sandra Foti wanted the new store looks to celebrate the heritage of the building, which includes a large arched facade that will remain as a pivotal feature of the new Piccolina.
“I have always loved that building on the corner. It’s probably one of the most iconic on Glenferrie Road, so when it became available, I knew we had to take it”, said Sandra.
It will be a larger space than the previous Hawthorn location and will stock all the Piccolina favourites from their 100% natural gelato range, as well as Italian thick shakes—their house-made ‘Better than Nutella’ chocolate sauce on tap, and handmade gelato cakes—including the famed Ferrerolina Rocher. Their new range of gelato also includes a slew of dairy-free flavours with decadent dark chocolate and forthcoming weekly specials.
The new store will be opening at the beginning of November, so prepare for many a summer night scoop.
