Buy Local offers/products/services:  Dolcenero offers Southern Californians not only an incredible assortment of gelato and sorbets, but also a cultural experience in high quality Italian gastronomy. It is the only place in Santa Monica, where gelato lovers can watch as it is made. Through a window behind the counter, customers can see it churning in what Dolcenero has coined "The Happiness Machine."

The return of Main Street continues with this stylish gelateria, offering flavors that evoke Firenze and Roma, made from produce sourced through nearby farmer’s markets. Though many options to grab and stroll, there are tables both inside and out, allowing for a fine views of the passing parade.   Dolcenero owners, Simone Acciai, Nicola Cambuli, and Francesca Mallus, are natives of Florence and Sardina, Italy. 

Our gelato is made fresh every day, using fresh ingredients such as local fruit and milk.  Gelato is both lower in fat and calories compared to traditional American ice cream. We don’t use any industrial bases when producing our Gelato, just a few simple, selected, natural ingredients, such as water, fresh milk and cream, sugar, fiber, eggs, top-quality fruit, IGP-certified Piedmont hazelnuts, and our chocolate.  No bright green for the pistacchio or vivid pink for the strawberry. The shades are exactly the same as the fruit they come from.  To prepare our gelato we only use high quality products in order to always serve you a Gelato that will meet your expectations.  To ensure the freshness, quality and creaminess of our gelato, we produce small quantities at different times of the day to make sure that its average duration does not exceed a few hours.

We Buy Local by supporting fellow SM businesses including the SM Farmers Market.  We are also keen to distribute our Gelato to local restaurants.
