Meno Zero

Gelato stores in the Manningham area are few, say Anthony Biviano and Francesco Crifo. The pair, who own pizza restaurants Six Slices and Zero95, joined with Denise Papale (ex-Brunetti’s) to ramp up Doncaster East’s gelato-to-customer ratio with their shop Meno Zero.

Inside the candy aqua-and-pink store you’ll find 24 flavours of gelato. There are classics such as pistachio, stracciatella, hazelnut and bacio, alongside vegan mango, pear and ginger, mixed berry, and passionfruit. But there are also some more unusual options inside the glass cabinet.

There’s a pizza Caprese gelato, made with tomato, mozzarella and basil, with whole ripe tomatoes partially submerged in glossy white gelato.

Then there’s the sette veli, which is made with several types of chocolate, and inspired by a traditional birthday cake from Sicily, torta sette veli.

Outside of scoops and cones there are semifreddo cakes, as well as crepes and milkshakes. You can take your goodies away, or dine in.
