Our Growth

Our Artisan Gelato Chef "Lori" Creating New Flavors
!! Fresh and Home Made Daily Authentic Artisan Gelato !!

Well known as a destination for residents of the Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine, Washington and Ozaukee county as the “best” Gelateria in Wisconsin but also recognized by the NY TIMES as one of the best in The United States.

Those who have been to Italy or are Italian by descent tell us everyday that Divino Gelato is the “best” they have had in the USA and rivals the best they had in Italy or other countries of Europe.

“Gelato with only 4-6 % butter fat content and Sorbetto with no fat, milk and very little air infused offers the ice cream “connoisseur” intense flavor, much different from regular high fat ice creams and custards at 50% air infused.”

If you have not been been to Divino, please take this as an invitation to not only Divino but to beautiful, historic, downtown Waukesha, beautiful downtown Racine, WI and Brookfield Square.
