About Us

Lisa, the original creator of Dolcella fell in love with gelato while visiting family in Europe many years ago. "I LOVE ice cream, and on many warm summer nights, we would take our three kids and raid the local creamery!" However, she missed the smooth, creamy, intensely flavoured gelato she had when in Europe. So what did she do?

"I started experimenting with some recipes at home. Eventually I studied the craft of making gelato in New York from a gelato Maestro. Thus, Dolcella Gelato was born!"

At Dolcella Gelato, our gelato is made using the same philosophy of the traditional Italian Gelateria that is made in small batches by hand, using only the highest quality ingredients, and seasonal, local fruits whenever possible. This produces a rich, dense and flavourful gelato. Super creamy, smooth and delicious. We have now teamed up with a gelato chef in Toronto who takes just as much pride in making all of our gelato as Lisa did. It is made fresh per event.

We serve our gelato out of a 1965 DIVCO milk truck as a tribute to Lisa's late father's love for classic cars.
