Parry, our founder, always had a love for frozen desserts. Growing up, his father owned an iconic soft serve ice cream shop which later became the inspiration for Nani's Gelato. Fast forward to 2018, Parry had a vision to open a food concept with a small footprint that would focus on takeout only. Most importantly, he wanted to pursue a concept that he could infuse his passion and culture into. Reminiscing on his early love for his father's soft serve ice cream shop, Parry knew something in the frozen dessert category would be the perfect fit to execute his vision.
Compared to ice cream that contains upwards of 100% air, gelato typically only contains 30% air making the final product denser and more flavourful. Less air, typically translates to a higher quality product.
Due to the density of gelato, flavour injection and concentration is much easier compared to hard ice cream. We love changing our flavours bi-weekly and the characteristics of gelato allow us to infuse the product with almost any kind of flavour you can imagine.
Unlike a lot of other frozen desserts, the main ingredient in gelato is milk as opposed to heavy cream. The result is a lower fat product where flavours are better accentuated. Our sorbettos which are water based, typically contain zero fats.
