About Us


Gelaterie Pierino is a family owned business. The name deriving from Pietro Stellato who left to his family his vast knowledge in the art of gelato making and coffee mixing. Pietro “Pierino” was introduced to this art by his father in the late 1950’s at their home in Italy. It is with great pride that we continue his legacy here in Montreal and honor his memory by bringing to everyone his wonderful gelato.

Gelato vs Ice Cream

Gelato & Sorbet has generated a lot of confusion over the years. Ice cream is whipped with 60-90% air, while gelato has just around 20%. This means more air, less flavor. Ice cream has anywhere between 14-25% fat whereas gelato has 4-8% while our sorbets have close to 0%. Gelato is held at a warmer temperature, which helps give it its creamy and silky texture. Fresh ingredients & a great recipe is what gives gelato its stronger and more satisfying taste!
