Cool Gelato Italiano in Scottsdale isn't just the hottest gelato space in town; it's also a little scoop of Italy with owner's Alberto Della Casa and Letizia de Lucia, a husband and wife team that creates artesian Italian gelato.
In Italy gelato is not just a treat but a tradition. "Very important since we were children in Italy, you go to the gelato store, its happiness, something fresh," explains Casa. "You have to do it the right way. It's not just a business, and it's a way of life."
Both Alberto and Letizia attended Gelato University in Italy and worked alongside Gelato Master Mossimo Barbetta.
Cool Gelato Italiano has 24 rotating flavors and of course they change with the seasons. They also have another Italian tradition…espresso. Affogato is a bold and tasty way of pouring espresso over gelato. The end result is a creamy hot or cold weather delight.
Italy maybe a world away, but the cool tastes are right in your backyard.
