If you’re looking for truly authentic Italian gelato, look no further than Noto Gelato! They lovingly handcraft their excellent artisanal gelato in Calgary using the finest ingredients imported from Italy. The shop was founded by Stefanna Spoletini and her uncle Dom Tudda. Stefanna grew up steeped in the food industry. Her father is one of the original co-founders of local favourite foodie destination, Spolumbo’s. Stefanna’s extended family also own Pulcinella, Stromboli Inn, Villa Firenze, and Mercato. Dom is a Calgary chef who was classically trained at the Italian Institute for Foreigners in Castiglione d’Asti. He is the artisan behind Noto Gelato. He created his first gelato recipes in his restaurant, Pulcinella, and quickly became obsessed with all things gelato, striving to create the best of the best. You’re in good hands here!
