Q. As a youngster I remember gelato to be an icy product that didn't really taste good - why would i want to buy gelato .... how is it different now?
A. The gelato industry has evolved greatly over the past 15 years. Before there were probably only 2 or 3 manufacturers that you could choose from, and competition was not fierce enough to warrant a battle to raise their standards. Today there are many companies to choose from, competition is fierce, however the overall improvement within the industry can also be attributed to the introduction and use of modern stabilisers coupled with solid flavours, new teqniques and  better machinery. The industry could only get better. Today the gelato industry can be categorised into 3 distinct classes: low class - a highly aerated product low in solids with an icy mouth feel; mid range - an artisan product made to a budget; a boutique range - an artisan product made with emphasis on quality (we sit in the boutique range - our awards are  recognition and testimony to this statement)
.

Q. But how will i know its good quality?
A. Simple. Look out for our flavour labels or merchandise. Or better still ask if it is from the Art of Gelato Michelangelo. If it's ours, you will always be assured it is gelato of the highest quality.
