Did you know that each and every batch of Gelato is made with Love and Care, ask me!.
Hi!, Have you tried our Mint Chocolate flavour? It's my favourite, no wait! I think I love Bacio more!
When the heat is on, nothing is better than a cool lemon Sorbet side by side a creamy Chocolate Gelato.
Visiting Ottawa I stumbled upon this little Gelato store in the Byward Market, and I must say it was by far one of the best Gelato I had! So many flavours to choose from. I loved their Bacio gelato and their raspberry sherbet! They even had a little factory where they made it right there using fresh ingredients. Staff was super friendly and they manage the line very good. One downfall, they barely had any sitting area. I definitely recommend to go there. If you get a moment to sit there then have an affogato, Bourbon Vanilla with a shot of espresso.. Can I even say more
‘m only giving 4 stars just in case that my joy in this gelato was overrated because I haven’t had any sort of dairy in a long time! Piccolo Grande was an awesome welcome back to the world of dairy! I got the bourbon vanilla and the coconut, neither which disappointed! The gentleman behind the counter loved to talk about their gelato and gave us a mini science lesson on how gelato has less air than ice cream and how that affects the flavor and consistency. Yum.
