This is the Italian splurge!

"My father had a dream: sharing the recipe of artisan gelato, a blend of tradition and tastes of his land, with the whole world. We do our best to make it happen "
These are the words of Gianluca, a master with a long experience and professional skills obtained at the Italian School of Gelato - Università dei Sapori (Perugia). After years of experience and continuous research in the field of natural and healthy ingredients, Gianluca has opened its own Taste Lab, a working space conceived for preparing pasta mixes, the base of his artisanal gelato.
He personally select the best ingredients in order to serve a finished product of the highest quality, obtained with organic fresh ingredients and by adding natural spices as cinnamon, star anise, cardamom, clove, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, beyond vegetal fibers as inulin and bamboo fibers.
You will enjoy the morning preparing your own speciality and in the afternoon you will discover 5 Terre as well!
I'll be happy to accompany you !
