With an indulgent dessert range of new and exciting flavours introduced by our gelato chefs weekly, you will be spoilt for choice.
What makes Gelato Special?
Giovanni’s Gelato is a superior product in comparison to ice-cream, why you may ask? Gelato contains on average 50 – 60% less fat! Gelato, although much creamier and flavorful than ice-cream actually has fewer calories. Vegetable fat, which is the usual choice for ice-cream is substituted for dairy fat, which poses as a far superior fat content.
Further, Gelato has a much higher density than ice cream. Ice-cream manufacturers add air to ice-cream as it nearly doubles the quantity of their product without increasing costs. Unlike ice-cream, very little air is added to our Gelato resulting in a higher quality product with a rich and creamier taste. In order to enhance taste, Gelato is also served slightly warmer than ice-cream, this helps bring out each individual flavour for you to savour for longer.
