The selection of flavours is impressive; it ranges from the more conservative hazelnut and pistachio to the combos of Ricotta, Coffee & Honey.
Pistachio & Chestnut
Hazelnut, Pistachio, Bonet (chocolate with coffee, egg yolks, run, caramel, amaretti biscuits, vanilla) & Ricotta, Coffee & Honey
This is extremely airy, almost like the ones from ice cream vans, so it melted away into mushy milkshakes in minutes. Personally I prefer something more compact and denser, but this could be ideal for some.
I couldn’t finish a medium size tub, because a) I’d have to drink it, and b) it was far too sweet. Even for me. I didn’t like any of the flavours because after the 5th spoonful they became sugar shots. No roasty fragrance in pistachio, no bittersweetness in Bonet, and worst of the lot, no hint of chestnut in chestnut. And I’m sure the staff concurs, because he said I should taste a bit of avocado in the chestnut. Eeh? What have I missed?
In case you are not aware, my favourite gelateria is Oddono’s, I tend to benchmark all other ‘authentic’ and ‘finest’ Italian ice cream parlours against it. And Gelupo has nothing on Oddono’s.
