play_arrow What is Gelato?

Quite simply, gelato means ice cream in Italian.

What's The Difference Between Gelato and Ice Cream?

Gelato has far less fat because it’s made with milk rather than cream. It's denser because it's not whipped full of air, resulting in a smoother ice cream with a much richer flavor. Sorbet & Italian Ice is dairy-free, fat-free and made with 100% real fruit. Saucy Joe's gelato is all-natural with no artificial flavoring or syrups. And yes, it's gluten—free.
