๐Ÿ‘‹ Selene here! I have once again eaten a food I would like to tell you about.

Mamamia Gelato just opened under the Artistry apartments in downtown St. Pete. I immediately fell in love.

  • The gelato is unbelievably creamy and the owner, Nice, is just as sweet.

Flavors to try: Speculoos crunch, Mamamia (chocolate, almond and pistachio) and Hazelnut.

  • Everything is made in-house with ingredients from Italy (minus the milk and sugar) including their cones, which also come in chocolate, cherry and pistachio flavors.
  • They also make crepes, waffles and other baked goods.

About Mamamia: This is the shop's first location in Tampa Bay, but they plan to open six more throughout the area. Nice tells me they're looking at Tampa and St. Pete Beach.

  • The franchise has three other U.S. locations in Miami and others throughout Europe, Africa and Asia.

๐Ÿฆ Stop in and say hi to Nice for us! You won't regret it.
