Our Gelato

Here at Bottega Italiana we take personal pride in our product. Our gelato is handmade daily and in small batches using natural flavors and ingredients to ensure the highest quality. Our milk and produce are hand chosen from local markets to ensure the freshest ingredients. Fruit flavors are only made seasonally, because we can only use fruit when it is at its peak flavor and freshness. We do this to assure that we offer you the highest quality product possible.

In addition to using fresh ingredients, we at Bottega Italiana do not use any additional colors, flavors, or preservatives in our product. When it comes to flavor and color, our gelato is strictly "come as you are." Another current trend we reject is the practice of sweetening with corn syrup. You will never find corn syrup in Bottega Italiana's gelato.

For those who are lactose intolerant or vegan, Bottega Italiana also offers dairy free (and vegan) flavors. These are usually fruit flavors and are therefore seasonal. Stop in to see which dairy-free flavors we are currently featuring. In addition, our gelato was recently certified as gluten-free to meet the increasing demand of our gluten-sensitive customers.

Many ask how gelato is different from ice cream. The main difference between gelato and ice cream is that not all flavors of gelato contain dairy, but for those flavors that do, they are made with 2% milk. This results in a product that contains approximately 60% less fat and calories than American ice cream, that is made with heavy cream. In addition, the end result for those dairy free flavors is an even lower calorie count product. While still boasting a smooth velvety texture, these vegan alternatives are an excellent alternative for those that are lactose intolerant. Gelato also has much less air added to it during production, yielding a more intense and concentrated flavor.

We hope you will have the opportunity to come by soon and experience a taste of Italy for the first time. You can come sit and enjoy some of our fresh gelato at one of our caffes or even take some home to share with your friends and family.

Bottega Italiana will expand and enhance your dessert menu with over 40 authentic gelato flavors to choose from that include:
