ABOUT US

We make fresh, hand-crafted, artisanal gelato every dayAlive with flavor – sun-kissed, vine ripened, hand-plucked, & personally pasteurized. It’s our secret recipe, allowing us to capture the perfect taste & texture in every scoop, lick, & bite. We’re dedicated to delivering the best gelato, direct to your tongue.
The Coletta DifferenceWe craft our gelato in the age-old Italian tradition, but infuse California culinary sensibilities to provide delightful twists for the palate. We aim to produce gelato in its purest form – with velvety smooth texture that’s evenly flavored, and delivered at its peak freshness. Our gelato is vibrant and alive. We produce it fresh daily and it’s intended to taste immediately. You’ll taste the difference. One taste bud at a time.
Our IngredientsFresh gelato is ephemeral and should be consumed within a few days for ample flavor and texture. We capture this perfect window in time. That’s why we carefully craft each step – personally sourcing local raw ingredients farmed by our artisan purveyors, pasteurizing our own milk, and hand-crafting our infusions. It’s freshness you can taste.
Our TechnologyOur production is on point. Our gelato lab uses state-of-the-art gelato cookery. And once it’s mixed, Coletta gelato is housed in air-tight containers that utilize top-tier gelato technology, maintaining the precise temperature needed to guarantee freshness, uniformity, and texture. It’s our secret sauce that allows chef-curated concoctions can be mobilized around town, one scoop at a time.

OUR FOUNDERS

Passionate Perfectionists

Our founders, Henri and Antonio, met while studying for their Master’s of Management in Food and Beverage in Milan. With their shared Italian roots and passion for food, gelato specifically, they became fast friends. They soon decided to attend Gelato University (yes, that’s a real thing!), where they were trained by Italy’s top gelato maker. Inspired by their experience, they established Coletta Gelato –affectionately named after Henri’s grandmother, Nicoletta, who first introduced him to gelato as a boy.

Perfectionists at heart, they are dedicated to creating primo gelato – from texture to taste. They fell in love with San Francisco for its shared epicurean zest and proximity to fresh, organic ingredients. And now they are eager to bring fresh gelato to ALL.
