The Gelato making tradition in the Cattani family of Florence Italy dates back several generations. After moving to Canada, Carlotta Cattani, President and Director of Production and flavour development of Il Gelato di Carlotta, was determined to bring her passion and know-how for authentic Italian gelato to Ontario.
In 2013, Carlotta, her husband and her two brothers, opened their first location at 59 Queen Street in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.
Due to its extraordinary success, Il Gelato di Cartlotta opened multiple locations: Niagara On The Lake, Niagara Falls, Oakville, Toronto, Port Dalhousie.
"We are humbled and overwhelmed at the positive response of the thousands of tourists who stream in to our stores, the locals who return time and again, and those who continue to buy our gelato cakes and pastries all year round.
Carlotta Cattani, President, Il Gelato Di Carlotta Inc.
From Tuscany to Ontario
We love delighting our customers with new flavours. Our goal is to indulge our patrons with ingredients that charm even the most discerning palate. A creaminess that only handcrafted gelato can deliver, made from traditional ingredients. New flavours are periodically introduced based on the season. However, we try our best to be consistent with our most popular flavours.
