About Us

Native Italians Luca Guerrieri, Antonella Ragazzi, and David Arato opened the doors to Bottega Italiana in the summer of 2003. Their goal was simple: to make the highest quality gelato. With techniques learned from critically acclaimed Gelatieri in Italy, it is clear from the first bite that this is an authentic artisanal product. Made fresh daily onsite, they have over 24 flavor options every day for you to choose from, and are always coming up with new, rotating flavors to entice their customers’ palettes.

They also specialize in rich and bold coffee offerings, representing the finest Italian coffee brand: illy. The staff of Bottega Italiana work to keep their traditional roots alive in the shop, serving up a full espresso bar menu in the style of the old country.
