It is nine years since Casa Del Gelato first opened its doors in Three Lamps Ponsonby, fuelled by a passion to make authentic artisan gelato without compromise.
They offer a range of delicious flavours to tempt you. If concerned with your waist line, you can take comfort that their gelato is low in fat (between 4 and 6% fat content) and doesn’t contain any of the following - eggs, egg protein, gelatine, added vegetable or animal fats, preservatives or artificial flavours. The majority of flavours are also gluten free.
In addition to gelato, they serve up a pretty mean sorbet which is dairy-free and fat-free and almost all flavours are gluten free. And, if the sorbet is not your cup of tea, then perhaps a Belgian-style waffle, a monster shake or a scrumptious brownie might take your fancy. To accompany your gelato, they also serve a range of coffee and tea.
From its humble beginnings in Ponsonby, Casa Del Gelato has grown into seven licensed stores throughout Auckland, with two not so far away in Parnell and Mt Eden.
'What we love most about having a store in Ponsonby is the people," says Maria Pilot founder of Casa Del Gelato. "Our customers are just the nicest people around and to see the young ones growing up over the time we have been here is simply wonderful."
