Five years since the original Zero Gradi opened its doors on Brunswick East’s Lygon Street, Zero Gradi Gelateria and Dessert Bar opens at Crown Melbourne offering our renowned house-made gelato, sorbets and handcrafted Italian cakes and pastries with coffee and more from Southbank’s Crown Riverwalk.

Made using traditional gelato-making techniques that we perfected over two years in Naples, the gelato is churned daily using high-quality ingredients in professional Carpigiani gelato machines with a minimum 24 hour pasteurisation time. With over 30 different rotating flavours on offer, sweet tooths will enjoy deciding between the classic Neapolitan gelato flavours such as Lemon, Coffee (Zabaglione) and Pistachio, to the more obscure like Black Hawaii, White Chocolate and Sour Cherry, and Bacio.

Our refreshing sorbets are 100 percent vegan, with a creamy, smooth consistency ensuring the lactose is not missed in taste or texture.
In addition to the gelato and sorbet, a crepe station, frozen yoghurt machine and Crema Cafe are all on-site, along with Italian pastries and cakes, that rivals Melbourne’s best, made daily by the creative and dedicated Gradi patisserie chefs.

“Zero Gradi Gelateria and Dessert Bar houses all our pastries, desserts and gelato, made daily by our talented pastry chefs. The display cabinets provide an Italian fanfare of classic desserts with family recipes that have been passed down for generations. We look forward to continuing to expand the Gradi offering to the sweeter things in life.” – Johnny Di Francesco, Director Gradi Group.
