Business Description

Dolci Gelati, located in Washington DC, is a gelato lover’s paradise. The artisan gelato company was started in 2006 by pastry chef Gianluigi Dellaccio, who uses an authentic Italian recipe that has been in his family for generations but adds his own unique twist to create a modern take on a traditional Italian favorite.

Every morning, Gianluigi starts the process by receiving deliveries from local dairy farms and handpicking fresh, rare ingredients such as fine chocolate that he sources sustainably from a small farm in Ecuador and tempers himself. His creative magic takes place in his “Laboratorio del Gelato,” or gelato laboratory, as he mixes the perfect harmonies between fruit, sugar, milk, and chocolate like a chemist.

Dolci Gelati offers a wide variety of flavors, including the popular Honey Mascarpone Fig, Biscoff, Mango Sorbet, and Bacio (chocolate hazelnut). The consistency and quality of the gelato can only be achieved with artisan precision, and Dolci Gelati has perfected this craft.

Gianluigi distributes his gelato to various restaurants in the DC area, as well as specialty supermarkets like Dean and Deluca and Whole Foods, catering companies, and food carts at venues such as The National's ballpark. He even holds the esteemed title of Gelato Ambassador of the world.

Dolci Gelati has received rave reviews from customers, who praise the amazing flavors and creativity behind each batch of gelato. Whether you are a local or a tourist visiting DC, Dolci Gelati is a must-visit destination for anyone with a sweet tooth looking for an authentic gelato experience.

Overall, Dolci Gelati offers an exceptional gelato experience that you won't find anywhere else. From the locally sourced ingredients to the authentic Italian recipe, this artisan gelato company is a true gem in the heart of Washington DC.
