The journey of 3 ITALIANI stems from a passion for bringing a taste of Italy to Asia. The fun-loving, sweet-toothed brothers, Massimo and Gianluca Gagliardi aspired to plant their feet in Asia, and promote authentic, centuries-old gelato culture in this part of the world and beyond. And they wanted to do it with love.
The first step is opening a 2,000 sq ft. flagship store in Hong Kong in October 2017, creating a chilled, fun and social place for local gelato aficionados. The store also provides breakfast, waffles, fine chocolate and coffee, served in the most traditional Neapolitan way.
3 Italiani is the first made-on-site gelato shop in Hong Kong, offering the only Artisanal Gelato, meticulously crafted daily, in small batches. Everything is fresh, artisanal and authentic, creating an unmimicable taste. Fresh, special recipes are sent directly from 3 Italiani’s factory in Italy to ensure that customers have the fresh taste of Italy. 3 Italiani’s gelatieri are rigorously trained in Italy by seasoned gelatiere Vincenzo Iannacone and his team. Gelato aficionados will be impressed by Vincenzo’s passion and 30 years of experience. His secret recipes and generations of family know-how are ever evolving – balancing originality and creativity.
