B: With the hot-pink walls and a massive ice-cream cone in the front of the store, this gelato store is impossible to miss. Art of Gelato Michelangelo recently moved to The Horsely Drive from 7 Alan Street in Fairfield to a larger premises. Their gelato is made in store in their factory behind the storefront and you can catch glimpses of the workers behind the glass.
The interior of the store is made so that you feel like you’re in Italy. They have flowers that hang off the balconies, as well as large murals of an amazing landscape of Venice and the black and white portrait of a girl eating ice-cream.
I was amazed with the large variety of flavours this place produced – from casatta, vanilla custard, to your typical asian flavors of taro, green tea, black sesame and durian. With over 100 different flavours they manufacture, they are constantly rotating their flavours in store.
The prices are also very reasonable and as the staff described “family-prices for families”. We bought a large size gelato cup ($6.50) and had the choice of 4 to 5 flavors. We chose apple pie, doughnut, coconut macaroon and rainbow. You can also get the medium ($5.50) with 3 to 4 flavors and a regular ($4) with 2 to 3 flavors.
There are also other gelato desserts, cakes and takeaway gelato tubs. These takeaway tubs are very affordable with the 500ml gelato for $6, 1L for $9.50 and 2L for $16. We couldn’t help it and left the store with green tea, durian and taro.
They also serve coffee using Lavazza beans. Ando bought a latte but unfortunately they didn’t have soy-milk.
I highly recommend this place if you are in the area. This is my go-to-place when I am craving gelato because its close by, affordable, has amazing gelato and friendly service.
