Delizia’s family’s love affair with gelato started in 1915 when our great grandfather, Andrea, started making gelati for his coffee bar in Messina. With a passion for simple flavours and fresh ingredients, he shared his love of food and secret recipes with his grandson Orazio. Orazio, now in Australia, with his wife and his parents, worked together making iconic and popular cannoli, biscuits, as well as their legendary liqueur cakes.
They began in Ann Street, Fortitude Valley – down the narrow lane and up the rickety, spiral wooden staircase. Back then it was simply known as “Orazio’s”. The 18th of March 2018 marked 50 years since that original factory was opened in what is now Bakery Lane. In 1991 they moved two blocks over to Berwick Street and since 2007 Delizia’s factory has been located on the north side of Brisbane in Virginia Street, Geebung.
Over one hundred years after Andrea first started serving Gelato, his family carry on the sweet tradition, perfecting the growing range of Delizia gelato and sorbet. Although state-of-the-art equipment has replaced the hand churns of old, the gelato is still created using traditional family recipes and methods.
With “four generations of flavour” dedicated to creating the best gelato, the taste is more than just delicious, it’s Delizia.Join the Coffee Commune today to access all partner offers.
