Great ice cream in air conditioned unit, very cooling on a hot afternoon. Lots of flavours to chose from. The Salted caramel and almond chocolate were delicious.

Having travelled widely and regularly across Italy, I wasn't expecting some of the best gelato I've ever had in Galle. Great variety of flavours, all made fresh in house. Pistacchio, Orange * Cardomom and Almond all great. Worth a visit.

Hi, we do not use any sort of gelatin at all in any of our products. We do Not use any flavoring or coloring whatsoever in any of our products either! We are 100% halal!

Response from 902shalinif | Property representative |
Hi Kurt, yes we do. We generally have atleast 6 sorbets (dairy free) a day. Our flavors of sorbets change every day or two, depending on whatever fruits we can source fresh and of only the highest quality.

We serve authentic Italian gelato, made using fresh, natural ingredients. Our philosophy is to use the Island's abundance of tropical fruits and mouthwatering flavors to enhance an already beloved product. Our gelato is made using mostly locally sourced ingredients, but we also bring down the highest quality nuts from Sicily and Piedmont to round off an amazing gelato experience.
