Unico Gelato & Caffé

The founders of Unico are childhood friends Andrea Vitali, Enrico Zecchini and Andrea Tonelli who have links with Cremeria Funivia, one of the most famous gelato shops in Bologna. Their smooth, creamy gelato comes in classic flavours including chocolate, salted caramel and vanilla but also some exciting combos like cremino (hazelnut infused into chocolate and cream) and cream Bologna (vanilla and Sicilian lemon zest). It’s actually not all gelato here – they sell cakes, pastries and ‘sandwiches’ too. The latter are called ‘bubbles’ a type of spherical Italian creation a bit like a savoury doughnut. Each bubble has a filling from a different region of Italy, including Parma ham, aubergine Parmigiana and spinach and ricotta cheese, from Verona.
