Toronto’s Dreamiest Gelato Shop Is Re-Opening Today & It Will Transport You To Italy

Take a trip abroad without hopping on a plane!

While jetting off to Italy for the summer does sound appealing, it’s not always in the cards. If you’ve been dreaming of a European getaway, then put on your sunhat and head over to this charming dessert spot. You’ll feel as though you’re enjoying a cone in the sunny streets of Tuscany. Toronto’s Piccolina Gelato is re-opening today and it will transport you to another land.

Toronto may be an ocean away from the dreamy streets of Italy, but the city still boasts a bit of Italian charm for us to enjoy without needing a passport.

Piccolina Gelato will give you major vacation vibes with its rustic white walls, pastel benches, and colourful flowers.

Not only will the views have you feeling like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, but the treats will also whisk you away across the water too. 

The shop sells craft gelato that’s made by hand, giving you an authentic taste of Italy.

In order to keep visitors safe, one guest at a time will be allowed in the store to place an order.

The shop also sells gelato bars and other treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

There are gluten-free and dairy-free options available so everyone can enjoy a frozen delight.

The venue will be open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.

If you're looking for more dreamy European spots, you can visit these places in Ontario that will have you feeling like you're in the South of France.

You can also take a road trip to seven European capitals around Ontario for more vacation vibes.

Leave your passport behind and embark on a mini Italian getaway by checking out this dreamy gelato shop.
