Gelateria daRe is known around town for its use of unique and high quality ingredients, crafting small batches of artisanal gelato for the discerning palates of residents near Piazza Istria in the north side of Rome. Unlike most gelato shops, the gelato is stored and covered in deep wells, called pozzetti, as per tradition since it keeps the gelato fresher by protecting it from oxidation. To this end, Veruska Cardellicchio, proprietor and award-winning gelatiere, believes her gelato should be tasted before it is admired, which is why her gelato continues to rank among the best gelato in Italy year after year.
Natural, locally-sourced (when possible), and high quality ingredients are central to the success of Gelateria daRe. The brand’s palette of creamy, earthy brown matched with a hunger-inducing fuchsia set the stage for a simple, single-page website that features a carousel and delectable food photography for the gelato menu. Minimal icons, sans-serif fonts, and large blocks of color create an aesthetic that aligns with the company’s mantra to keep flavors natural and honest.
