Unico Gelato & Caffe to open Fourth Site in St John’s Wood

Unico Gelato & Caffe, the Italian delicatessen specialising in gelato, coffee and pastries, has launched their fourth site in the leafy borough of St John’s Wood

2018. Unico is linked with one of the most famous Gelato shops in Bologna, Cremeria Funivia and uses the great Italian culinary traditions and historic recipes of its hometown to bring a true taste of Italian Gelato to London.

Managed by childhood friends Andrea Vitali, Enrico Zecchini and Andrea Tonelli, and mentored by Cremeria Funivia’s founder Leonardo Ragazzi, Unico currently has sites in Notting Hill, Fulham and Bromley, each managed by one of the founding team. Unico offers a variety of quintessentially Italian goods, including their signature gelato, coffee, pastries and cakes, as well as savoury snacks and hot food, including organic paninis, focaccia and mortadella. They also have a wide selection vegan options in all areas, from gelato to cakes, sandwiches to hot food.

Their smooth, creamy gelato flavours include Italian signatures such as Pistachio and Hazelnut as well as indulgent ‘Gourmet Gelato’ flavours, such as Cremino (Hazelnut infused with white chocolate and cream), Due torri (Mascarpone custard and marsala wine, served with the hazelnut and chocolate sauce) and a Crema Bologna (madagascar vanilla and sicilian lemon zest). In addition to these, they also offer vegan gelato options, including Strawberry, Lemon, and Dark Chocolate, so there is something for everyone. The gelato is made fresh on-site every day and is served in cones or tubs, or there’s the option to take it away to eat at home in their larger tubs.

As well as their gelato selection, Unico also offer a selection of delicious pastries and cakes to devour alongside expertly made coffee, and Italian style sandwiches called ‘bubbles’ – spherical, savoury doughnuts filled with fillings hailing from different regions of Italy, such as the Parma (Parma Ham & Mozzarella D.O.P.), Napoli (Aubergine Parmigiana), Cortina (Speck [smoked ham] & Asiago Cheese) and Verona (Spinach & Ricotta Cheese).

On top of their food options, they also offer quintessential Italian coffee and deliciously thick, creamy hot chocolate, perfect for warming up during the winter months.

Unico also offer private parties, including children’s birthday parties in store, and catering for private functions elsewhere. On top of that Unico also wholesale their products to many of the top restaurants around London. The excellent quality produce on offer, alongside the stylishly modern, brightly lit and pastel hued interiors, make Unico an exciting addition to the Italian food scene in London.
