Il Gelato di Carlotta opens its 3rd Location in Vaughan…

Our third location opened its doors this week at the Vaughan Mills shopping mall in the City of Vaughan north of Toronto and adjacent to Little Italy the City of Woodbridge. We have a 300 square foot kiosk surrounded  by the Bass Pro Shop, Sporting Life and Brooks Brothers. The gelato quality remains the same, hand-crafted in Niagara Region, using local fruits, organic cream, raw organic cane sugar, non-GMO organic fructose and glucose from Europe, reverse osmosis water… we could go on and one! Just drop by and enjoy it.

ALMOST MADE IT! We couldn’t believe our ears when a call from the Niagara Falls Chamber of Commerce informed us that we were nominated for the Mayor’s Newcomer Business of the Year Award! Barely four months into our existence at the Fallsview Casino! Bottom Line: Our nomination holds, but we did not win. Ah, well! You win some… The winner was a designer of real life puzzle adventures called the Escape Room! Congratulations. But we had a great time at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, across the road from our gelateria.

WITCH ON THE VESPA FOR HALLOWEEN 2015!

Our Theme for Halloween 2015…

Our witch can make this Vespa fly! The same as we make our gelato fly! :)

WITCH ON THE VESPA! And lots and lots of pumpkin pie gelato made from pie pumpkins grown at a Mennonite farm on East-West Line. Some people think our gelato is so scrumptious that they become like the pumpkin monster in the picture, eating the gelato and the cup and the spoons! We mostly use organic and non-GMO ingredients, no white sugar but grape sugar, or organic raw sugar or non-GMO dextrose or glucose made from corn, organic cream, reverse osmosis water and much more!

NO, NO MARCELLO! This is not just any pretend Italian prosciutto cotto!

Just for you: the best Prosciutto Cotto made in Italy!

NO, NO MARCELLO! This is not any Prosciutto Cotto, pretending to be real Italian and stuffed into a panini! This is prosciutto Cotto that is smoked delicately by burning leaves from Italian walnut trees and made at one of Italy’s oldest farms, Venegoni in historic Boffalora. And yes, we are the distributor for Venegoni. Are you ready for our prosciutto Cotto panini?

BLIND TASTE, TRULY! The taste of purely made gelato always stands out!

Blind Cyclists get a taste of our gelato…

A group of blind cyclists belonging to the Trailblazers Tandem Cycling Club in St. Catharines were touring Niagara Region on Saturday Sept 26 and were at the park by the Lake Ontario in Niagara on the Lake at about 12 noon for a lunch break. Highlight of the lunch: a special tasting of nine different authentic and mostly organic Italian gelato courtesy of Il Gelato di Carlotta gelateria run by a family from Florence, which has been voted Ontario’s No. 1 dessert parlour in 2014! Enjoy!
