By most accounts, the Italian Corner is not just another ice cream shop. It’s a place where the most decadent flavours collide to bring about an almost heavenly experience.
The Italian Corner makes and serves authentic gelato, delicious fruit sorbets, and soft serve, among other items. According to owner Nicholas Sintich, all ingredients are imported directly from Italy (except the milk, sugar, and creams, which are locally sourced). Customers can indulge in this gelato heaven at any one of The Italian Corner’s two branches, one based in Umhlanga near the Main Beach and the other situated in Durban North.
In addition to taste, variety is also on the menu, with more than 20 ice cream flavours available to choose from. The flavour list includes mouth-watering options such as Ferrero Roche, Kinder Joy, Hazelnut, Salted Caramel, and Amarena Cherry. The Italian Corner’s menu also includes several vegan options like Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Sorbet. Should you prefer to eat your gelato at home, Takeaway tubs are on offer, as are pre-packed single scoops. Considering how good this ice cream is, one scoop may not be enough!
The online reviews are almost universal in their praise. Said one social media user: “Best ice cream in town!! I thought I had found great ice cream until I tried these guys. I was not disappointed. This will be my cheat treat from now on. Love it!!”
With such an abundance of variety, taste and quality, it is no wonder that The Italian Corner usually becomes the preferred choice of almost anyone who dares to try it.
