Amato Gelato renovated since we last visited and the renovations look great. They have also added some different items such as italian donuts (bombolini) which can also be made into an ice cream sandwich and pizza.

They have lots of tables inside as well as a sheltered outdoor patio.

You can order a single or double scoop in a cup, cone, waffle cone and chocolate dipped waffle cone.

When we there there they had 20 sorbetto (non-dairy) flavours, 2 no sugar, 2 frozen yogurt, 2 tofulati and 48 gelato flavours. They rotate their selection so they can carry even more options.

Their 17th Avenue location offers even more menu options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Gordie as he does every time we come, picked chocolate sorbetto. He is always thrilled they have a dairy-free chocolate option. Robbie got hedgehog (chocolate hazelnut and I tried pistachio ripple this time. Nicky opted for a cone with vanilla strawberry swirl.

Amato Gelato offers a great selection of Italian ice cream in Calgary and one of the largest selections of dairy free ice cream options as well.
