IT STARTED as a collaboration between two Italian boys – Andy from Milan and a mate from Sicily. The research went deep – trying cannoli all around Sicily, training from the best pastry chefs in small towns that tourists would never find. The result is a unique and sublime pastry, filled with a silky smooth ricotta that is not ultra-traditional, but preferred everywhere we’ve looked.

That dough with lashings of sweet marsala, a touch of cinnamon and layered to give an ultra-light, shatter in your mouth texture is something that has come from years of obsession to find the perfect recipe and process. And the only filling to balance that unique shell would be the smoothest of smooth ricotta. Locally sourced, fresh and handmade. Precision, perfection and performance – is something that we say often at Biancolatte!

Our flavours have changed over the years as we like to keep it fairly traditional. Our classic ricotta carries the aroma of a hint of lemon zest, while pistacchio (made with a little added honey) hits all the right notes, and our latest addition by popular demand – chocolate – is made with the finest belgian dark chocolate of course.

Just like our gelato, quality ingredients and passion for process is what separates these cannoli from the rest. The best part is you can now ORDER ONLINE for pick up at Elwood or delivery from Williamstown. Grab the kit (pipe yourself to keep that shell super crisp) or simply a box to share at a picnic or after dinner – these are the perfect sweet treat to enjoy at any time of the day! 

Ciao and see you soon x

What a joy to be back in 2022 doing what we LOVE! With our fleet of gelato carts forced into hibernation for a couple of years it has been such a pleasure to dust them off, shine them up, and roll them out at so many weddings, parties and events over the last couple of months! While we aren’t quite back to pre-pandemic madness we are definitely out in full force serving our authentic Italian gelato to hundreds of events


To our wonderful customers – what a ride our little weekend bake shop has been! We (Andy and Fiona) have enjoyed every minute – sharing our passion for Italian food and meeting so many of you in our community who we don’t normally get to see! Sadly, we have had to put the bake shop aside for the moment to commit to other projects. We are always innovating and pushing forward at Biancolatte so that you can keep enjoying our


Over the next few months you’ll see some changes happening on our website – one of them is already in place and that’s our NEW online ordering system! But first, a little history about the site. The original biancolatte website – much of which is still live – was designed by husband and wife team Andrea and Camille Di Fiore in 2012. How cute is it that the whole site is designed like a gelato cart, and carries the original


Apparently, we have had a lot of requests for rum and raisin gelato lately. And we think this is an absolutely fantastic idea – so THAT’S why we went ahead and made something completely different – a special we call ‘liquori-misu!’ I think even we’re baffled as to what happened (we will make rum and raisin we promise!) but before we knew it, liquorice had turned into coffee and then into coffee, mascarpone & liquorice. If the curiosity factor doesn’t
