Matteo Servente has long dreamed of sharing the Italian tradition that shaped him. His hometown, Torino, has a deep culinary history. Gelato is his way to connect Memphis and Torino through one of the most delicious treats in the world.
From simple ingredients to a rich and balanced taste, Zio Matto is the authentic Italian gelato experience. Small handmade batches are crafted with care. Each ingredient is mixed in until the right volume and texture are achieved.
The name Zio Matto (literally Crazy Uncle) comes from Matteo Servente’s niece Giulia, whose unsuccessful attempts at pronouncing her uncle’s name led to this nickname, which lasts to this day.
