Gelato Village

Let’s talk about a little piece of Italy right in the heart of Leicester: Gelato Village. Hailing originally from Turin, this authentic Italian ice cream parlour is a delight. They churn their gelato and sorbetto on site, using the traditional ‘mantecazione’ method, giving the desserts an ultra-smooth texture.

What also sets Gelato Village apart is its commitment to local produce. Every drop of their non-homogenised milk is sourced from Vine Farm Dairy in Great Dalby, Leicestershire – a testament to their dedication to supporting independent food and drink businesses. The result? Extraordinarily creamy gelato and refreshingly light sorbetto, all completely free from artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives.

But it doesn’t stop at just ice cream. Pair your dessert with their excellent coffee or a waffle during the colder months. And let’s not forget the treats imported straight from Italy – the finest sweets, nuts and chocolates served to showcase the best of their home country.

Gelato Village also offers a unique delicacy you’re unlikely to find elsewhere in the region – the Bicerin. This Turin speciality is a layered treat of espresso, thick hot chocolate and milk foam, served in a glass. Trust us, it’s an experience worth trying.

The offerings at Gelato Village are as plentiful as they are exciting. From catering for external events with a full mobile chiller unit to takeaway options in thermoboxes, you’ll always get your gelato fix. Plus, all their single-use packaging is biodegradable and compostable, so you can enjoy your treat guilt-free. With a vibrant atmosphere that brings a slice of Italy to your doorstep, Gelato Village is an experience not to be missed.
