Gelato Village

Originally from Turin, Gelato Village is an authentic Italian ice cream parlour that produces gelato and sorbetto on the premises, using a traditional Italian churning method known as ‘mantecazione’.

One of the best things about Gelato Village is its commitment to sourcing local ingredients, and its clear passion for other independent food and drink businesses. So all of Gelato Village’s non-homogenised milk comes from a herd of Red Poll cows at Belvoir Ridge Creamery in Eastwell, Leicestershire. And all sorbettos are made with fruit only, purchased at Leicester Market.

The quality of the ice cream is superb: dense, creamy, luxurious gelato, and light, fresh-tasting sorbetto, neither with any artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives. These are served alongside excellent coffees, waffles and Italian pastries in a lovely, vibrant atmosphere that brings a little bit of Italy to Leicester.

Run by people who source and use the best ingredients and who are passionate about the quality and taste of the end product. The gelato is amazing. Hard to put into words how lovely the flavours are ...and the choice of flavours is brilliant. Worth a trip to Leicester to just to experience this. I love it.

    The one amazing thing about Leicester is Gelato Village! The most delicious coffee and waffles to die for! It's always busy here just wish there was more room!! So many treats to choose from I could spend the whole day in here... Dangerously good.
  7. Jenni-Marie says:
    Fantastic Gelato Village is a great place to meet friends or take family. The atmosphere is relaxed and chilled, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The gelato and waffles are a must try if you haven't. The flavours change from time to time but still taste great. Every mouthful is just perfection, smooth and full of flavour. I would highly recommend Gelato Village to anyone that hasn't tried it. Give it a go, you can't go wrong.
