Delizia’s affair with gelato started in 1915 when their great grandfather, Andrea, started making gelato for his bar in Messina, Sicily. With a passion for simple flavours and fresh ingredients, he shared his love of food and secret recipes with his grandson Orazio.
Almost a century later, Orazio’s family continue the tradition, perfecting the growing range of Delizia gelato and sorbet. With four generations dedicated to creating the best gelato, they promise the taste is more than just delicious, it’s Delizia.
Delizia is committed to ensuring that our passion for creating authentic artisan gelato and sorbet is reflected in each and every mouthful.
They take the finest local ingredients including Queensland grown macadamias, Kensington Pride™ mangoes, Australian sugar and dairy. Then they combine them using traditional methods handed down through four generations to create the very best gelato and sorbet.
Their state of the art factory in Virginia Brisbane is one of the most sophisticated in the country, containing the very best imported Italian machinery. They use it to produce gelato and sorbet using the traditional artisan methods used in European gelaterias – without the use of artificial pre-mixed bases. Because our gelato and sorbet is made from scratch using real ingredients it tastes like no other. The texture is dense and creamy. The flavour is intense. And after four generations of producing the finest gelato and sorbet we still get excited with every new batch we produce.
