In Italian, Gelato simply means “frozen.” For anyone who has been to Italy or visited our store, it means so much more. Gelato has an intense and dense flavor that cannot be matched by American style ice cream.

Our gelato is lower in fat than ice cream, allowing your mouth to taste the true flavors. We do not whip extra air into the gelato as in ice cream and our gelato is not as cold as ice cream. It melts fast, eat up.

We make gelato and sorbetto the traditional way using high quality, natural ingredients. The majority of those ingredients are grown or made right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Chocolate from Guittard Chocolate in Burlingame and Tcho Chocolate in San Francisco. Coffee beans from Blue Bottle, and loose leaf teas from Numi Tea, who are all in Oakland.

All of our sorbetto is made from fresh fruit that is at the height of its season and predominantly grown locally. We never use frozen or canned fruit in our sorbetto. At Gelateria Naia we do not use artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
