About D’oro Gelato e Caffè
D’oro Gelato e Caffé is where Italian Culture, Authenticity, and Creativity meet to create deliciousness! From desserts and pastries, to beautiful panini all in-house made by our creative, passionate, and lovely ‘Pasticciera’ Giorgia Zanone, D’oro Gelato e Caffè is where you experience true artistry.
From Biella, Piemonte, Italy, Giorgia was schooled by growing up in a culture of great food with her ‘famiglia’, and later received her Chef Designation at Northwest Culinary School here in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Her schooling never ends as she is constantly seeking and learning, we are blessed to have her part of ‘our famiglia’!
Formerly ‘Mondo Gelato Caffè’ and ‘Gelarmony’, D’oro Gelato e Caffè has been home to the ultimate gelato experience since 2000 when founder, Maurizio Grande, guided by the master Gelataio Artigianale, Salvatore Russo, opened the first location at 1094 Denman Street in Vancouver.
In 2014, Pino Bacinello and his partner, Kristina Sonney, purchased the two stores. The duo continues to produce Vancouver’s best gelato in the same tradition, but added the ‘Caffè’ making D’oro Gelato e Caffè Vancouver’s traditional Italian gelato e caffé experience passionately making and serving simply the best!
