Taking the pimped out gelatos of today and turning them on their heads, this Glenferrie Rd gelateria is taking gelato back to basics. Dripping in authenticity, Piccolina Gelateria is the place to go for your true Italian gelato hit.
Using techniques taught to her by third generation gelato makers in Italy (where else), owner Sandra Foti is determined to bring gelato back to its all natural, preservative free, no artificial colours, flavours or filler roots. With 15 years’ experience in the game, and more passion for well-made gelato than the judges on Masterchef, Ms. Foti and her hardworking team churn out the freshest of fresh gelato instore. From roasting the nuts for their delicious Pistachio and decadent Better than Nut-ella Chocolate, to making their own caramels, jams, and other ingredients (there’s been a Siccilian Cannoli special flavour) the team at Piccolina put in hours of hard work for their craft. And the results speak for themselves; silky smooth gelato full of flavor that has a richness unlike any other.
With weekly specials as well as regular decadent flavours like Bread, Butter & Jam, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Brownie and sorbet classics of Strawberry and Passionfruit, Piccolina needs to be at the top of your dessert hit list.
