Paolo Dalla Zorza, a native of Northern Italy, started as a gelato maker (gelatiere) in 2000. Soon his business grew as did the demand for his excellent gelato. With his 2 locations in Atlanta and Charleston he was inspired to expand all things gelato, and now, also all things gourmet with his new store front, “Paolo's Gelato and Gourmet”, located in downtown Charleston, SC.


This website was created so that everyone can experience these delicious Italian products even if you are not able to visit our store in person. Our philosophy at Paolo's Gelato and Gourmet is eat well, live well. By sourcing and providing quality Italian cuisine that will tantalize your taste buds and will keep you coming back for more!
