Dolce & Salato pasticceria

Over the weekend Canberrans were out and about, enjoying the sun, doing a spot of shopping and a lot of them were having a sweet treat from the new dessert hot spot in Civic Dolce & Salato pasticceria, which had only just opened up less than a week ago.20131201-210834.jpg

A quick look inside- there are very cute tea-cup lights and a very big cabinet full of Italian desserts but I’m always a little wary of Italian pastries because there is nothing worse than stale pastries, so I went with a gelato instead.20131201-210849.jpg

Lots of friendly staff ready to take your gelato orders.20131201-210900.jpg

I am a fan of the indoor and outside seating area.20131201-210910.jpg

Tiramisu gelato ($5.00) and Yoghurt berry ($5.00). In the first instance of tasting the tiramisu, you could really taste the liquor followed by a coffee flavour. There is no mistake that it was tiramisu but the texture of the gelato when I went in for my first mouth full had me worried as it had the consistency of thick cookie dough batter.

The yoghurt berry in comparison had a completely different texture and it wasn’t overly sweet, a nice refreshing flavour for Summer.

I didn’t see anyone take any tastings so I don’t know if they are available, but you would hope to enjoy it when it was 5 bucks a scoop!20131201-210926.jpg


I can see this place getting very busy during the upcoming hotter months with their great location, large variety of gelato flavours, extensive Italian dessert range and with the eventual wood-fired breakfast menu.
