The Gelato is made in house but it was horrible .. Rubbery mouth feel with a synthetic flavor and sticking to your teeth. an it is expensive... Avoid

Ciao Sibi! First of all, thank you for giving your valuable suggestions. The machine we use here (which is imported from Italy) helps us produce the finest and smoothest gelato in town. And since the day we started, the people of this city have shown us such love and acceptance for our gelatos that we do not get this any where else in the world.

We are not a store open only to make business by supplying low-quality gelato and we would be very happy to hear from you which flavour made you think it was synthetic and rubbery. Do visit us at our store and while this remark has surely upset us, we are always welcome to suggestions and criticisms.

About the price - despite not making huge profits, we have kept the price very low (lower than all other gelato shops in the state) as it is a crime to charge high for gelato in Italy. - Sara Calderoni, Manager, MIC.

I loved the Tiramisu flavoured ice cream. but I wish they had more of yoghurt based items and fruit flavours which is something Kerala totally lacks. Though they claim it to be all natural, i feel that the fruit based ones do have flavorings used

Ciao Ruby! We are happy to listen to suggestions from public. Also happy to know you liked our Tiramisu flavour. We had several yoghurt and fruit based flavours during our initial months Ruby. We still keep the best of them running even now, produced fresh every day, just like the fruits we get from our vendors, fresh early morning. However, we have increased our chocolate based flavour, because there is a huge demand from our customers for it. Also during monsoons, we found many don't prefer fruit flavours.

The best part of MIC is that it is your store. If you want to see our chef making the gelato, you are always welcome to ask for a visit to our kitchen. You can see how it is made. Also if you want a certain flavour, just tell us a few days earlier. We will do our best to make sure we get you the flavour you want. We are from Italy but now Kerala and Kochi is like our home. And all of you are our friends!
- Sara, Managar, MIC.

Milano Ice Cream, is a wonderful Gelato joint... They have great offerings of Gelato in terms of both Flavours and value for money... 'Milano' is relatively a small joint, but with a truly refreshing ambience that has a certain elegant coziness to it... The service too is truly delightful... But at the end of the day, the only testament I can leave for their truly sumptuous Gelato is... That you'll definitely be coming here more often...

Fresh Gelato made daily with fresh milk (Which is pasteurised in the premises). Flavours are great. Try Tirami su and chocolate. They have nice sorbets also. Service is great. Both Giancarlo and Sara, who run this place are very friendly. Italian Chef is also very friendly, even though he does not speak much english.
Only minus point is parking space.
Great work guys...keep it up and going, full throttle.......
