You can indulge in Italian Gelato Singapore at Lucca’s Trattoria without the guilt – most of you will simply know it as the Italian version of ice-cream. The key difference is Gelato is made using milk as a base while ice-cream is made, well, using cream. This means Gelato will have a lower fat content compared to ice-cream. USA FDA states ice-cream has to contain minimum 10% fat. conversly, Gelato usually has 4-7% fat content. On average a 3.5-ounce serving of vanilla gelato contains 91 calories, 3 grams of fat and 9 grams of sugar. A normal 3.5-ounce serving of vanilla ice cream contains 126 calories, 7.4 grams of fat and 13 grams of sugar which means you CAN have that treat!
Gelato from Lucca’s Trattoria is special because our Italian trained Gelato chefs make it fresh within the store every few days. Premium ingredients from Italy and France are used. For example, our pistachio gelato is made using pistachio from the Bronte region in Sicily-Italy, widely known as producing the finest pistachio in the world. Hazelnut from Piedmont combined with premium French chocolate gives you that unbeatable taste of our Gianduia. Pair this with an unforgettable cup of our award winning Segafredo coffe, possibly topped off with an imported cigar at Lucca’s Trattoria Italian Restaurant Singapore.
