Amato Gelato Cafe

A Calgary Staple

Since opening our doors in 2003, Amato Gelato has become a favourite for Calgarians. At the time, gelato was mostly overshadowed in popularity by ice cream… it was practically unknown. But Calgary would soon come to love the rich and creamy taste of Gelato, keeping us busy year-round (even in winter)! We’re still here at our original location in Kensington and truly appreciate all the support we have received from this wonderful city.

If you haven’t visited us lately, you’re in for a surprise! In 2018, to commemorate our 15 year anniversary, Amato Gelato Cafe has underwent renovations, both inside and out. We have even expanded our menu as well. Our new interior is modern, warm and inviting. Our patio-space is now one of the most beautiful in Calgary, a great place to come relax. You will still find a rotating assortment of Gelato, now alongside an expanded offering of hot food, baked goods, Italian coffee and more. Stop by today for a quick espresso pick-me-up, or perhaps a Roman-style pizza for a quick bite.

Our downtown venue is now open! Located in the heart of 17th ave. S.W. you can expect the amazing gelato flavours that rotate, always bringing you the newest flavours available, delicious Aperitivo’s and authentic tasting food that will make you feel like you’re in Italy!

From Italy to you.

Our story is rooted in Gelato. We are proud to offer the quality that comes with over 90 years of gelato-making experience within our family. We only source the best ingredients to create our flavours from scratch, ensuring a fresh and natural taste. Every one of our 72 rotating choices offers premium flavour, creaminess and a pleasant aftertaste on the palate.

Are you a Gelato Purist? Then opt for our classic Vanilla Bean Gelato, or perhaps a refreshing Lemon Sorbetto. If you’re looking for a little more excitement on your pallete, we have a rotating variety of 72 flavours! Don’t be shy to ask for a taste. With such a wide variety of choice, it can be a hard decision. You can always go for something popular like Pistachio or Matcha Tea Gelato (a customer favourite). Feeling adventurous?
