Ten-second takeaway


Extra Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, Whiskey Irish Creme and Avocado gelato


Hot Chocolate

Winning for

Beautiful and fresh flavours. The gelato here is also not over sweet like regular ice cream.

What we ate

When it comes to gelato, no one can do it as good as them Italianos. And thankfully, the freshly-churned gelato at Milano is in safe hands with Giancarlo Segalini {who learnt this fine art in Milan}. After opening in Kochi, in 2015, Milano entered Bangalore by setting up shop in Indiranagar. The gelato bay at Milano looks very Instagrammable with rows and rows of fresh, creamy gelato dotted with chocolate chips, crumbs of cookies, pieces of fruits, swirls of Nutella, and more. The scoops are available in waffle cones, cups, as topping on crepes, in sundaes and pretty much on anything. They will even add a scoop in your espresso and top it up with whipped cream, or shape it like a flower before they present it to you in a cone.

Their Extra Dark Chocolate is as enticing with its hardcore cacao flavours as is their Whiskey Irish Creme with its undertones of the alcohol. While you would expect a strawberry cheesecake gelato scoop to be very sweet, this one is refreshing in its tart, light sweet flavours. But the surprise is of course the lovely Avocado flavour, which when you taste is low on sugar and tastes just like the real fruit does {nothing more, nothing less}. Great for those watching their calories, although gelato is considered to be much healthier than regular ice cream, anyway. During summer months we have also loved Milano’s fresh berry-based sorbets. And that’s not all. Their ice cream cakes {by the slice} look equally delectable.

What we drank

The Hot Chocolate here is pure cocoa, which you can see being churned in a machine right in front of you. It is served with a scoop of your choice or mountains of whipped cream. We’ll take both please!

The DL on the ambience

The decor is white and that only serves to highlight the splashes of colour that the rows of gelato create. Milano looks like a shiny, happy place, just as an ice cream parlour ought to look like.

So, we’re thinking…

Unusual flavours, healthier choice {we do scream for ice cream, especially ones that come with lesser calories and sugar}, and their novel use of gelato in different beverages and desserts.
