Bella Gelateria

The Triple Berry Sundae

Price: $12

Created by: Our Italian Gelato Master Ilias El Ghaith.

The Triple Berry Sundae is an explosion of juicy berry flavor that’s sure to infuse the taste of summer in every bite.

Starting your sundae, you’re met with a burst of fresh raspberry gelato, matched with a subtle topping of whipped cream, decadent Itilian Amerena cherry drizzle and an accompaniment of fresh berries.  The second layer of strawberry gelato is sweet and creamy, giving a ripe note compared to the tartness of the raspberry gelato.  To finish off the sundae, a deep, luscious blackberry gelato captures a fresh summery taste,helping to cleanse the palate and leaving you wanting more!

All of our gelato flavors are made with fresh cream and real strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, with no additional food colorings or flavors. 

Available: All the time
