La Macelleria Gelateria West End
West End locals lost the plot with excitement when La Macelleria Gelateria opened on Montague Road in the latter half of 2017, rejoicing at the fact that Brisbane’s best gelato was within closer reach. Owner Matteo Zini brought his gelato concept south of the river to offer traditional gelato made on site daily. La Macelleria focuses on authenticity – the store is fitted out with the trademark ‘see-through’ gelato lab, complete with a vertical gelato machine which is perfect for creating traditional, Italian-style gelato. The store also offers Italian-style coffee, cakes, gelato sticks and gelato sandwiches and experiments with different flavours to keep things fresh and interesting, on top of current top sellers including salted caramel, dark chocolate, bacio (chocolate hazelnut) and pistachio. The store will also hold gelato making workshops to teach locals how the best gelato is made.
