AN AUTHENTIC ITALIAN GELATO COMPANY
Why does our gelato
taste so good?...
At Giovanni's we view gelato as a special experience, from production to delivery. Our chefs stay true to Italian tradition in their creation of authentic Gelato paying
close attention to detail.
Our gelato is passionately hand crafted daily to produce lovingly made luxurious flavours certain to excite all tastes.
Each individual unique flavour is carefully balanced through sourcing only the finest ingredients using natures own natural colours and flavours, never compromising on taste.
Both classic and contemporary flavours are included in our seasonal menus, which are ever growing!
Qualita e Passione...
Our gelato is a superior product in comparison to ice-cream, why you may ask?
Gelato contains on average 50-60% less fat! Gelato, although much creamier and flavourful than ice-cream actually has fewer calories. Vegetable fat, which is the usual choice for ice-cream is substituted for dairy fat, which poses as a far superior fat content.
Most importantly, artisan gelato has a much higher density than ice cream. Ice-cream manufacturers add air to ice-cream as it nearly doubles the quantity of their product without increasing costs. Unlike ice-cream, very little air is added to our gelato resulting in a higher quality just as nature intended.
In order to enhance taste, gelato is also served slightly warmer than ice-cream, this helps bring out each individual flavour for you to savour for longer.
GELATO VS ICE CREAM
A testament to our product & design...
Here at Giovanni's we are passionate about our love for gelato. We have been honoured to receive many prestigious awards, amongst them an OPAL for best Retail Mall Unit in the UK along with an Annual Visual Victory award in the USA in 2014 for design and brand of
our flagship gelato truck.
In 2015, Giovanni's scooped best independent retailer of the year by MKBAA (Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards) which was truly magnificent achievement.
In 2016 and 2018 we received further recognition for our quality of gelato. Our authentic Sicilian Pistacchio Speciale, Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie Peanut Butter gelato and Cremino each won a Great Taste Award and was received from The Guild of Fine Foods.
These awards are a testament to the company's success, as we grow from strength to strength we continue to develop new flavours and deliver a true artisan gelato experience for our customers everyday.
IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS
