Gelateria Gemelli opened at 1009 E. Sixth St. in the Corazon building over the weekend. The gelateria from Bologna-trained Andrew Sabola serves gelato, sorbetto, espresso drinks and Italian craft cocktails. The gelati, which include flavors like brown butter vanilla, Valrhona chocolate, salted caramel stracciatella, cardamom orange and peanut butter maple, is preservative free and the cocktail list includes Italian standards like Negroni and Aperol Spritz, as well as a selection of Amaro.
“Through my formal training and after sampling many fine gelatos in Italy, I have come to respect the art of perfectly capturing the essence of a particular flavor,” Sabola said. “There is a current trend to combine unusual, off-the-wall flavors in ice cream. We are dialing it back a notch. We want to re-introduce our guests to the simple beauty of the freshest ingredients, prepared with exceedingly high standards, following the same traditions of the finest gelaterias of Italy.”
