If you’re looking for authentic Italian gelato sans the overseas flight, Dolce Neve is your hot ticket. Co-owner Francesca studied the art of gelato making at Carpigiani Gelato University (Bologna, Italy) before refining her skills working for Gianfrancesco Cutelli at the acclaimed Gelateria De’ Coltelli (Pisa, Italy). In 2014, she teamed up with her partner Leo and brother Marco to open Dolce Neve on South 1st Street, bringing Austin real Italian gelato and sorbet made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Current offerings include sweet corn and blackberry gelato, nectarine sorbet, sour cream and peach gelato and blueberry and elderflower sorbet. Also, be sure to try a refreshing granita; it’s one of the only places in town making the silky slush, which is available in coffee, chocolate and rotating fresh fruit flavors.
