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 a second location in the Honey Moon Capital of the world - Niagara Falls inside the prestigious Fallsview Casino On June 15, 2015. 


In 2016 Il Gelato di Carlotta inaugurated its first GTA location at Vaughan Mills Mall in Concord, Ontario.


From Tuscany to Ontario
