Dolcetti technically make Italian gelato – ice-cream’s creamier (and tastier) friend. An important ingredient for any family holiday in the Cotswolds!
This family-run parlour in Cirencester hand makes every 5 litre batch with love, passion and all of the traditional methods you’d find in an Italian counterpart. The best thing is they use locally-sourced ingredients and live by the great philosophy of “from cow to cone in a day”. Creamy milk comes from only 4 miles away from the Edingvale herd of pedigree holstein cows. Before choosing one of the many flavours on offer (see below), peer through the viewing window to see production in process.
Rob Gibson who started Dolcetti has an interesting story himself. Back in 1984 he fell in love with Gelato in South Africa. After mastering the art of making it he went on to establish the largest chain of ice cream parlours in the country. Subsequently Rob moved to the beautiful Cotswolds and set up shop in March 2013. We say watch this space…
It’s not just artisan gelato though they make, on offer they also have mouth watering sorbets, natural yogurt ice-cream, milkshakes and fun ice cream cakes (perfect for special occasions whilst on your lakeside getaway). They sell tubs too so grab your favourite flavour and enjoy it from your lakeside hot tub! Perfect for your summer holiday in the Cotswolds this year.
Whilst at Dolcetti, if you want to taste probably the best coffee in town Rave Coffee is just next door and is highly recommended. Don’t be deceived by the slightly industrial exterior of both Rave Coffee and Dolcetti – these guys know how to make their stuff and it’s why all the locals drop in probably more than they should…
