Traditional Italian Gelato
the way it should be

What does it take to make good Italian gelato? Genuine ingredients, the skills learnt through a long established experience, and overall a burning passion for the art of frozen desserts.

This is the story of Il Gelato di Bruno: over thirty years of sheer gelato passion, and today you can be part of that story too.


Over 30 years ago the gelato chef Bruno dedicated his life to the art of frozen desserts. Thanks to his experience, passion and innovative flair combined with his work, Bruno created a sublime line of recipes for gelato and pastry, where flavors and seasons are united in complete harmony.

“il GELATO di BRUNO” now enjoys an extraordinary success, and its secrets were handed down from generation to generation, preserving the ancient art well loved by adults and children alike. Homemade in our premises, our gelato and pastry products are prepared daily using the freshest ingredients such as milk, fruit and cream and the best selected Italian products, so you can enjoy true and refreshing flavors, smooth and intense, made right in front of your eyes!

It starts with a Flagship Store, an all-in-one box with a complete offer including take-away gelato, sundaes, gelato pastry and much more.

Once your Flagship Store has been deployed, it will be able to serve a number of subsidiaries, enabling you to grow your chain further.
