Our Story



Two boys with one dream.


One a third generation gelato chef from Palermo, Sicily. The other a Melbourne born Sicilian living in Italy, with a passion for food. The boys met serendipitously one hot summer's day in Sicily and from there the journey began.


The dream, to bring the all natural. preservative free gelato recipes from the family dynasty and create a space that celebrated this tradition.


The two have created IL Melograno which serves breakfast and lunch with an Italian spin and Gelato & Sicilian Granita from morning till night.
