We stopped at Il Gelato di Carlotta after a Shaw matinee. The gelato was outstanding...rich and creamy and plenty of choices. The server was amiable and offered to let us try whichever flavour we wanted before purchasing. I have been back several times since and...More

it was just after 8:00 p.m. and the shop was about to close when a whole large, loud group of us invaded. While we were there another large group came in. The guy serving gelato inside was very friendly and accommodating for all of us....More

Try the award winning one-it has hazlenut and chocolate and custard and is fabulous! The server was really knowledgeable and the owner is Italian so the flavors are stupedous!

Artisan and home made gelato concentrating on classic flavours. Made daily, when it's gone it's gone. Excellent friendly service. The Chocolate & Orange flavour is wonderful.

Best affogato I ever had with a sorbet chocolate! Yes, chocolate sorbet!! Super rich cocoa taste in amazing espresso!!! I will never go to a Starbucks again for coffee. These Italian places are the real deal. :)

The gelato was really good AND perfect for my husband as he is both gluten and lactose free and they offered 4 different lactose free options (fruit based). The server was knowledgeable and very accommodating too, explaining the differences.

We were looking for our old favorite NOTL frozen yogurt but sadly it did not look worth pursuing. Our B&B host recommended this place and we were not disappointed.

A bar cafe type latteria that promises you gelato the way it was meant to be! We offer everything from gelato and sorbetto and specialty coffees such as cappuccino and espresso, to gelato cakes and gelato biscotto sandwiches, mini-cones and gelato on a stick. We use an an organic base imported from Italy and add to it reverse osmosis water, organic cream and milk, grape sugar (NOT white sugar), organic off-white raw cane sugar, locally grown fruits and more. We believe our product is more than 80% organic. Our suppliers in Italy use diverse fruits such as Alfonso Mangoes from Bombay, soft-flesh coconuts from Sri Lanka, to pistachios from Bronte, Sicily, and hazelnuts from Piemonte, Italy. Yes, we also offer gluten free cones and our sorbettos are dairy free.In the summer, we use Niagara grown peaces, apricots, plums, strawberry, etc. We also use other fresh fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemon, pineapple, avocado, watermelon, etc. For our sorbettos.
