From the same heritage as the legendary Amici chain of restaurants which has made a name for itself as a paradiso for value-for-money, and authentic italian pizza, pasta and gelato comes CARA MIA GELATERIA.
Cara Mia, Italian for “my dear”, promises a great line of scrumptious dolci tied with a whole new dessert experience for Filipinos. This modern day version of Italy’s traditional ice cream parlor called gelateria is where friends and family will definitely “Love to Chill”!
Gelato*, popularly known as the Italian ice cream, is the heart of Cara Mia. Starting from the artisan creation of Salesian priest Fr. Gianluigi Colombo, one of the pioneers in gelato making in the philippines, our gelato has been refined over the years through careful research and contributions from a renowned International Ice Cream Consultant.
With the birth of the Cara Mia brand, the expansion of the original gelato line became boundless, hence, the launch of its varieties including Gelato Cakes, Affogato and Gelato Shakes. It also boasts of its high-quality, premium Cakes, Pastries and Italian Coffee at very reasonable prices - more than enough reason to keep one coming back for a distinctive sweet treat!
Cara Mia’s flagship store opened at Missouri Street in Greenhills, San Juan in May 2009. After a few months of successful operation, it opened other branches at Bellagio Square in Tomas Morato, Quezon City, SM Megamall and Don Bosco, Makati. The heart warming response to the brand continues to make Cara Mia a dining destination for dessert lovers and food enthusiasts of all ages.
