Our origins date back to the 1980s, when Luca started experimenting in the kitchen of the two-starred Michelin restaurant "Al Gatto Nero", which was run by his family at that time.
In 1986 he decided to focus on the production of high-quality ice creams and sorbets opening a little artisanal ice-cream parlour with his brother Marco. The constant attention to quality, together with the efforts of the new partner Stefano, made our company successful both in Italy and abroad.
Menodiciotto products are special, just like our history. .
Our company started producing ice cream for high-end restaurants. We didn't follow the traditional path, we made something different instead: we successfully turned a small artisanal ice-cream parlour in a larger state-of-the-art plant, without compromising on quality.
We already export the Italian goodness of our Gelato in many parts of the world, with our brands.
“DO WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN”
has been our motto since the beginning, as it reflects our core values.
We believe that making ice cream is an art and, over the years, we have been growing thanks to the appreciation of our customers.
We share Slow Food movement's philosophy, which focuses on valuing the finest raw ingredients. As technical partner, we helped in the SELECTION OF PRODUCTS FOR SLOW FOOD PRESIDIA – a worldwide initiative assisting local producers – and contributed to their fame by using them in our ice creams and sorbets.
“GELATO MADE WITH LOVE”
As the painter wisely chooses the colors on his palette to create a unique masterpiece, in the same way at Menodiciotto we carefully select the ingredients to create always natural and refined tastes.
Today more than ever, the production of raw ingredients focuses on a selective approach and on traditional farming culture.
A few years ago, we finally turned our dream into reality by launching IoAgricultura, an initiative grounded on the importance of traditional farming culture and of selecting raw ingredients at their very source.
Basically, we started PRODUCING MILK FOR ICE CREAM in our own little farm, responsibly feeding our Montbéliarde cows with the hay from the nearby fields and caring about their health and welfare.
The milk we use for our GELATO is produced in our own dairy farm.
Our GELATO is made exclusively with Italian FREE-RANGE EGGS.
We only use fresh seasonal fruits to bring to you the most tasty gelato. Menodiciotto: delicious GELATO all year round!
Each flavor has its own secrets
Made with fresh seasonal fruits. From Granny Smith apples to the hazelnuts "tonda gentile" from Piedmont, in our gelati and sorbets you'll find a world of selected flavors according to the seasons
