Gelato in Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville

This gelato maker opened when friends from northern Italy couldn’t find their favourite ice cream in Paris so they imported the ingredients to make it themselves. The 12 flavours – spatula’d, not scooped – include gianduia (hazelnut chocolate) and zabaione, made from egg yolks, sugar and sweet Marsala wine. It also serves antipasti platters of imported Italian produce and great caffè too.

You can also get gelato at its original outlet, located just around the corner at 39 rue du Roi de Sicile, 4e.
