The Best Gelato in Toronto

Looking for the best gelato in Toronto? We've got you covered with this list of some of the best gelato shops in the city.

Gelato is the direct translation of ice cream in Italian, however, gelato is much more than just cold cream and sugar. The biggest difference between gelato and ice cream is the composition of ingredients (milk to sugar ratio) but more importantly, the churning process is what separates these two ice-cold treats. Gelato has more milk, less cream and is churned very slowly to avoid adding air -- hence the incredible richness and dense texture.

There is some controversy as to where this sweet treat originated; some will say in Florence, others will insist Sicily and a select few will argue that the gelato we know today was modernized in France.

Regardless of where it originated, gelato has now become a year-round dessert that Torontonians can enjoy despite our icy cold winters. From classic Stracciatella to Asian influenced flavours like durian or black sesame, to the Canadian favourite maple pecan, to an endless list of vegan and sugar-free options. Here is our list of the best gelato shops in Toronto.
