Often when we have dinner out in either Patitiri or the Old Village of Alonnisos we stop by the Italian Gelateria for a bit of dessert before heading back home. The location in Patitiri is situated perhaps just 50 meters from the harbor on the right side of the main road going up towards the Old Village, it was originally started by two wonderful and very friendly women from Italy, Jana, and Julianna, who brought with them their craft of making incredibly delicious Italian ice cream. Prior to the summer tourist season in 2007 they sold the business, but made sure to teach the new owners they needed to know about making the ice cream with the same level of quality and taste that customers had become accustomed to over the years. I can speak from personal experience that the ice cream they sell is simply fantastic in every way. It truly is the perfect dessert food to end any evening spent in Alonnisos.
The Gelateria location in the Old Village (pictured to your right) opened during 2008 and is really convenient for anyone staying up there. It’s located perhaps 60 meters from the bus stop in the Old Village as you walk up toward the main square (or in Greek, “plateia”) of the village.
When you do visit Alonnisos and find your sweet tooth calling you after dinner (or at any other time), rest assured that you can’t go wrong stopping by either location of the Gelateria locations.
