Welcome to Gelato Village
Gelato Village is the product of the passion for food held in the hearts of two Italians. We create a food experience like no other you have had before. Daniele and Antonio are natives of the Piedmont region of Italy which is the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement. Opening Gelato Village in the heart of independent Leicester in August 2014, they are committed to creating true Italian gelato with a unique sense of place. You cannot find this level of quality anywhere else in our region.
Local and Global Gelato
The cornerstone of our gelateria is our milk. From Vine Farm Dairy, this milk is pasteurised, unhomogenised whole milk, from the herd of happy Montbéliarde, Jersey and Holstein cows who graze the grass pastures in Great Dalby, Leicestershire. This is delivered fresh to the gelateria, and you can even pick it up by the litre to enjoy at home.
A sense of place
We believe it is important for everyone to support their local food producers. One of the fantastic businesses we support is The Bee Farmer from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Without this Leicestershire inspiration, we simply wouldn’t be Gelato Village any more. Our sense of place is also reflected in stock recipes like Alice Hawkins (lavender and white chocolate) and Richard III (fruits of the forest with homemade rose blossom essence) which give a nod to Leicester’s heritage.
