Located in the Burnaby Heights neighborhood is a wonderful Italian dessert shop which makes traditional Italian Gelato with classic Italian flavours. Co-owned by Giorgio Barassi and his wife Daisy, Giorgio learned his craft of making award winning sorbetto and gelato in Italy.
Tasting the flavours are exquisite, on one visit I had a Triple Flavours Gelato on a cone, with Pistachio, Bacio and Licorice Amarelli; and on another visit I had the Vecchia Milano Sundae which was had Italian Crema gelato topped with savoiardi biscuits crumble and homemade coffee syrup and dark chocolate sprinkles. I have also enjoyed the house-made Tiramisu which was delicious.
In addition to their creamy gelato flavours, you will find pastries along with a selection of cakes to enjoy in the shop or at home.
