Alberto Malvestio moved from the Northern Italian city of Treviso in 2008 to grace Berkeley with his gelato expertise. He makes a fresh batch of flavors every morning at 6am, roasting pistachios, cutting fresh fruit, and churning nut butters by hand. (When business took off four years later, Simone Arpaio, a fellow Italian, joined him in the kitchen.) The pair makes a range of flavors each morning, from tried-and-true classics to tongue-tingling specialties like lavender blueberry, rose, and toasted almond with caramelized figs. Almare is also known for its exotic fruit sorbets, in flavors like celery mint lime, Tuscan melon, and Meyer lemon.
