Cara Mia Gelateria comes from the same heritage as the legendary Amici chain of restaurants, which has made a name for itself as a paradiso for value-for-money, home-cooked Italian pizza and pasta.
Amici started as Amici di Don Bosco, a canteen founded by Salesian Italian missionary Fr. Gianluigi Colombo in Makati. Today, it is under the wings of veteran Mr. Danny Moran and Mr. Wilfrido “Iboy” Pinga's Amici Foodservice Ventures, who have created a sterling reputation in the food industry. Amici also has branches in Tomas Morato, SM Megamall, and most recently, Greenhills.
Right beside this newest addition to Amici's roster of branches is where you will discover Cara Mia Gelateria. Expanding beyond Amici's delectable varieties of pizza and pasta, Cara Mia carries with it a whole new dessert experience for a wider audience. And just like Amici, Cara Mia promises great, high-quality, authentic and a great variety of scrumptious dessert treats at affordable prices. Italian for “my dear,” Cara Mia also infuses a familiar and friendly warmth to its delicious offerings and introduces a modern concept in dessert parlors, where friends and families would definitely “Love to Chill”.
Cara Mia's flagship offering is the gelato, more known as the Italian ice cream. Gelato is well loved for its superb flavor and creamier texture, which makes it indulgently mouthwatering. Depending on your mood, you can enjoy any of Cara Mia's eighteen delectable flavors of gelati.
Another dessert wonder to look forward to is their Gelato Cake. The first in the country, Gelato Cakes are a creative fusion of several gelato flavors, cakes and toppings. Exclusively created by Cara Mia, gelato cakes come in six remarkable flavors -- Banana Blast, Spumoni Surprise, Merry Berries, Mango Sans Rival, Choco Tartufo, and Choco Sans Rival.
Now, imagine a scoop of gelato on a bed of soaked ladyfingers served with a shot of espresso coffee. This is a sweet dream made real known as affogato. Feel elevated by six affogato varieties—Tiramisu Twist, Black Forest Spell, Berries Delight, Noccioloa Blend, Tropical Mix, and Choco Banana.
If cakes were not enough, your favorite gelati are also available as shakes. Taking the dessert experience to another level are gelato shakes—Mud Slide, Pine-Mango, Banana Strawberry, and Coffee Java. Creative renditions of traditional dessert favorites such as cakes, pastries, coffee, and tea are also available in Cara Mia.
