Mio Gelati is best known for its gelato innovations in Midnight Mercato, offering not only the classic cream- and fruit-based flavors but also alcoholic ones and special premium flavors.

Recently, they introduced the first Mio Gelati Mobile in Distrito and they presented the Mochilato (gelato nicely tucked in a mochi ball) in UTT 7.0. I love it because of its soft mochi cover and delicious gelato taste.

Congratulations, Mio Gelati, for winning the Top 2 spot in Ultimate Taste Test 7.0!

Mio Gelati
by Celina Nolasco

Mio Gelati was founded by a young individual with the love and passion for desserts and sweets. Mio Gelati comes from an Italian phrase, which means “My Gelato”. In the hopes of sharing a new way of eating ice cream to the market, newfound concoctions were developed and an idea for an ice cream dessert shop was born.

About our Gelato

Mio Gelati promises to give satisfaction to each and every customer. We make our gelato in small batches and make (them) fresh everyday. Our cream-based gelato has natural ingredients, which came from Italy, while our fruit-based is made with real fresh fruits that are avilable here in our country. It is made (using an) authentic gelato machine from Italy as well. In Mio Gelati, we never store batches of gelato or deep freeze it. We use what we made immediately so customers can savor its freshness. Our Gelato has less fat than American ice cream — (it) contains 5-8% fat while American ice cream has 15-25%. It is also denser and contains less air that is why we promise to give rich, creamy, (and) flavorful gelato to our customers (who) will surely go back to our store.

Our Concept

Because the Philippines is a tropical country where heat is inevitable, Filipinos are
always finding ways to cool down after their day-to-day activities. Mio Gelati is a new
but promising variety — from cream-based gelato to fruit-based sorbet. Mio Gelati does
not only serve gelato but also has variants like gelato shake, mochilato (our version of
mochi with gelato filling), affogato, gelato cup cakes, gelato cakes, and even gelato
fondue. Mio Gelati offers a wide range of desserts to enjoy and indulge in the whole

Our Mission

In Mio Gelati, we want people to rediscover ice cream.
