Stella Luna – intimate ambiance, exceptional food!
Established in 2011.
Decades before the book “Eat, Pray, Love” was popular, my heart led me to explore the sights, sounds and flavours of Italy. I had only just arrived in Rome, when a hot blooded Roman, astride a smokey grey Ducati, cruised up beside me and asked me to the movies. Three days later he proposed over a pizza and three coins in a fountain later I was living in Rome, my head in the clouds, not speaking a word of Italian but knowing that this is where I should be. The rest is history. In 2010 I spent the winter in Bologna apprenticing with some of the finest Gelato Masters in the world. Now, more than 25 years later, with a Master Gelato Chef training under my belt Alessandro and I have pursued our dream. Our mission at Stella Luna Gelato Café is to make you fall helplessly, head over heels in love with gelato. Ours is love story infused with passion – for both our family, our roots and our business.

I love gelato!. Before Stella Luna, I knew what a good gelato tasted like; what kind of consistency it should have; when it was fresh and when it wasn’t. I knew how it should look and how, with the right decorative topping; it could become a work of art. I wanted to make gelato from simple and wholesome ingredients rather than with pre-measured powdered mixes. So, I travelled back to Italy – the cradle of gelato making, to attend the most reputable and successful artisan gelato training centre in the world, and trained under Italy’s finest Gelato Masters. Our secret is the art of meticulously balancing recipes and paring foods and in the freshness and the quality of the ingredients. Our products are prepared on site, from scratch, every day. Each flavour has its own unique recipe and is made using only the freshest, premium ingredients without any artificial colour or flavour. We infuse the passion and pride we share for well prepared food into each recipe.
