About Roba Dolce

Founded in Rhode Island in 2005, Roba Dolce Inc. had a dream of creating the most authentic Italian gelato and sorbet in the New World. Beginning with two small gelatorias in Providence and Newport, we used traditional recipes, imported Italian equipment and made our gelato in small batches. Our loyal customers from Rhode Island and tourists from all over the United States kept coming back for more. This response was so overwhelming that we decided to package our product for everyone to enjoy. Today we are proud to produce a vibrant, smooth and creamy dessert with a full flavor that will leave your taste buds energized. In April 2006, Roba Dolce began servicing just five local supermarkets - today we package and distribute to supermarkets nationwide, producing gelato and sorbet as private label and in the Roba Dolce brand. We recognize that this can only happen with hard work, a commitment to keeping our customers satisfied and a true passion for what we do. So discover your passion for gelato, the Roba Dolce way.
