The gelato competition in Milan is tough. On almost every corner there is a proud ice-cream producer inviting you in for a try. But I am always searching for the perfect combination of a natural and easily digestible ice-cream.
Here comes my recommendation for an exquisite ice-cream experience: at Officine del Gelato in viale Montenero. This ice-cream parlour follows and further improves the traditions of gelato producing dating back to the 1950s in the province of Cuneo.
Among the flavours I noticed some evergreen ones like salty pistachio, stracciatella, nocciola or fiordilatte. But if you are a gelato explorer I highly recommend the light cinnamon flavoured Lotus, the Officine (gianduja and rum), apple with calvados or any of the fruit flavours.
For the cooler days of autumn Officine del Gelato has prepared a good selection of creamy flavours and difficult to resist cakes and desserts which you could spot in the window.
Especially nice I find the little Cassata Siciliana green cakes and the cup desserts.
With the approaching Christmas holidays, the windows of Officine del Gelato are beautifully decorated with mouth-watering cakes. Do not hesitate to stop by and try some!
