Gelato Bacio
Ranked #74 of 94 Dessert in Dubai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 April 2015

A small shop not far from mall of the emirates. We stumbled upon it when looking for something more authentic than the franchise food in MOE. The flavours are not extensive, but most of what they have is very good. Some though (as pointed out by other reviewers) are too sweet. I found the pistachio particularly good, tasting like "real" pistachio nuts, while my wife really enjoyed the mint chocolate chip (said the chips were good quality). I tried the chocolate once and found it too sweet and full of air.
It is also very reasonably priced, and AED10 for a small cup with 1 flavour.

We have been to Bacio three times and I can say Hazelnut ice cream is a must for us to have each time! It's a quiet little shop in the corner behind Mall of the Emirates but trust me it's worth visiting. Then you're gonna say..."ohhhh!!! why shouldn't I try it eearlier?!" :)

We went for a desert after dinner, the outdoor seating was good at night with the cool breeze. The caramel and biscuits flavors were good but I didn't like the snickers flavor.

It's a tiny little hole in the wall place in AlBarsha area. Walking distance from Mall of the Emirates.

Some flavors were very nice & authentic like hazelnut & pistachio.

Others were of poorer quality & chock full of sugar.

Staff very friendly & laidback.

Parking availability not too difficult.

The outdoor seating is especially nice in the cooler months.

Just round the corner from the entrance to LuLu supermarket there is a lovely little cafe and gelataria which sells really good quality coffee and ice cream. It's tiny and part of the large City Stay apartment block. Sadly both times I've been it hasn't been busy at all. The coffee they use is cafe vergnano which I used to drink and love in London. The ice cream is really authentic tasting Italian gelato. Very very good. According to the server who was very friendly and efficient the owner is Italian so that explains it! One tiny thing - a complimentary glass of water with the coffee would have really put the icing on the cake. Other than that this tiny little place was really faultless.
