SUNSHINE AND CHRISTMASTIME CALLS FOR PICCOLINA!
This Christmas, Melbourne’s favourite gelateria, Piccolina, has launched two new gelato cakes in collaboration with LuxBite.
Piccolina X LuxBite
Following the success of the festive ‘Ferrerolina’ in 2017, Piccolina Gelateria and LuxBite have once again joined forces to create not one, but two masterpieces just in time for Christmas. Channelling a snowy European Christmas, the first creation is dubbed the Snowball and the second is a re-imagined Italian favourite crowned Tira-Miss-You.
LuxBite Head Chef, Bernard Chu says, “The success of Ferrerolina has been huge and my brief was to create something to rival that cake. Sandra and the Piccolina team wanted to be pushed to the next level, so this time we’ve incorporated more of my pastry background into this cake. I think we’ve got it”.
“I didn’t really like gelato but Piccolina has changed my mind. I love how they keep it traditional and 100 percent natural. When I deal with good product, we’re already halfway to our goal,” says Chu.
Whether as a treat for the family or a festive gift, the Snowball and Tira-Miss-You will provide the ultimate gelato indulgence.
PICCOLINA CHRISTMAS HAMPER
Piccolina Gelateria has released a Christmas Hamper filled with goodies that are all made in-house by the Piccolina chefs! The scrumptious gift pack includes:
- Piccolina Tote Bag
- 1L gelato
- Piccolina Honey Comb
- Piccolina Peanut Butter jar

The hamper comes gift-wrapped and is available for collection in-store, priced at $65.
MELBOURNE’S BEST GELATO COMES TO ST KILDA!
Bayside gelato lovers will be excited to hear that Piccolina Gelateria is opening their 3rd store – this one located in Acland Street St Kilda, the heart of Melbourne’s summer playground.
Piccolina owner and gelato guru, Sandra Foti, says “The lead up to summer is the perfect time to throw open the doors of another beautifully designed Piccolina store! St Kilda is one of Melbourne’s most popular beaches and so it just made perfect sense for us to open there! We love Acland Street for its village feel and it’s always buzzing with positive energy”
No two Piccolina stores can ever be the same. Our new store responds to the street scape and the beachside vibe of Acland street with the facade opening up completely to the street where customers can stand at the bar and bask in the sun while enjoying a sweet treat.
Once again, we’ve worked with the award-winning team at Hecker Guthrie to deisgn the new space. Like our other stores, it echoes 1950s Southern Italy – from the colourways through to the theatre of gelato and the fun packaging, designed by Projects of Imagination.
This store will feature a beautiful servery bench clad in square-cut Italian tiles where deep “pozzetti” hold 20 of our famous gelato flavours & 4 granita flavours. All our gelato is made fresh daily instore from 100% natural ingredients like fresh fruit and freshly roasted nuts. That’s why it tastes so good!!
And Nutella lovers rejoice!! A liquid chocolate fountain with Piccolina’s own home-made nutella sauce will be on tap and running 24/7!!
With it’s cute 50’s vibe, Piccolina St Kilda will be serving the gelato Melbournians can’t get enough of - 100% natural, 100% hand-made, 100% fresh and 100% delicious!
