In the spring of 1987 on the urging of a friend, Steve (Piccolo) Hambling decided to go to Italy and study the art and chemistry of making gelato. He returned with about 30 recipes and no money. But he had a half finished 800 square foot location on Murray St. A month later on July 18 the company opened it's doors. And so was born...

Piccolo Grande® manufactures and retails Italian ice cream, known in Italian as Gelato. But as with any product there can be many grades of quality. Part of Piccolo Grande®'s success is due to it's commitment to top grade quality. Piccolo Grande® has always used the finest ingredients available (including imported flavourings direct from Italy) to manufacture high-grade, low over-run (the amount of air that is found in the finished product) gelato. Piccolo Grande has a maximum of 28% over-run. From five litres of semi-finished (liquid) product we get seven litres of finished product (gelato).
