I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!… this is the phrase you’ll be singing on the way out of Amato Gelato as you engorge in one of the heavenly gelato flavours found at this hidden gem.
Located in the inner city community of West Hillhurst, on the corner of Kensington Road and 20th Street NW, Amato Gelato offers an authentic Italian gelato experience unlike many other ice cream parlours in Calgary. But then and again, it is one of the best Calgary ice cream shops; therefore, we can expect no less than the best from Amato Gelato!
Italian Ice Cream, Desserts, Treats
In the summer time, and even on the odd Chinook day during winter, driving past thsi hidden gem you’ll see a huge line up which speaks for itself doesn’t it? Everyone is looking to get their hands on some of the best Italian gelato in town – it’s just that good!
Maybe it’s the sheer amount of flavours offered that keeps the line ups long – 72 to be exact. I myself have a hard time deciding on which gelato flavour to indulge in: coconut, strawberry, kiwi, chocolate, vanilla bean, hedgehog, pistachio, tiramisu, white chocolate raspberry, mango, lemon and cappuccino cookie are but a few of the delicious flavours you’ll find.
And the best part is that you can purchase 500ml or 1L containers of your favourite kind of ice cream and take it home with you to enjoy at a later date, or perhaps to brag when everyone who tries it asks you where they can get their hands on some.
Apart from the Italian ice cream, Amato Gelato also offers a wide range of speciality desserts, yogurt, sorbetto, fresh pastries, Italian coffee’s, panini’s, custom cakes and more. To sum it all up, you can get all your dessert and comfort food needs from this Calgary hidden gem. If you haven’t been to Amato Gelato quite yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!
