Oddono’s Gelati Italiani started trading in July 2004 in Bute Street (South Kensington – London). Our mission is to offer fresh, natural Italian gelato. The company was set up by Christian Oddono, whose Grandmother used to make the most delicious homemade gelato in Italy. Christian, with the help of Marco Petracchini, Mirko Scolari and Federico Peruzzi, turned the lack of good quality gelato in London, into a business opportunity.
All the gelato is produced in our Artisan Laboratory in South Kensington on a daily basis, using in-house recipes. We produce our gelato from scratch, adding each ingredient individually.
We are very passionate about the quality of the ingredients we use. We select the finest natural ingredients from around the world: Vanilla pods from Madagascar, Valhrona Chocolate from France, Natural Pistachios from Sicily, Hazelnut from Piedmont, etc. We do not use any colourings, preservatives or GM products.
To date we have made over 130 flavours, including cinnamon, basil, chocolate and cognac, vodka lemon, honey, chocolate ginger and chili ice cream, etc. The best sellers include Chocolate, Nocciola (Hazelnut), Bacio (milky chocolate and hazelnut), Pistachio ice cream. Mango, Strawberry and Coconut are among the best seller sorbets.
Our sorbets are made with fruit, sugar, water and some stabilizers. The milk-based gelato contains on average 8% fat, while the sorbets contain 0% fat.
We also offer Illy Coffee, a delicious hot chocolate (made with a special in-house recipe), affogato (ice cream and coffee together), and Coppe Gelato (Sundays). We also offer Soya based gelato (dairy free) and low carb-no added sugar sorbets.
