Italian Dessertery Amorino Opens in Downtown Raleigh

  • 137 East Davie Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States

Amorino, a dessertery straight from Italy, will open to the public Tuesday, Nov. 22, in Downtown Raleigh. Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of unique products from the signature gelato rose cone to hot drinks, crepes, macaroons and more. In addition to trying out the delicious treats, a percentage of each purchase made during opening week will be donated to local charity InterAct, an organization that provides safety, support and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

There are 24 gelato flavors and eight macaroons, including chocolate, caramel, banana, orange, strawberry, mango and more. For those with allergies or diet restrictions, Amorino offers great alternatives including sorbets and egg-, gluten- or nut-free gelato options.

Especially delicious during the cold winter months, Amorino offers a variety of tasty hot drinks to choose from including hot chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, tea and espresso. For the adventurous at heart, try a Affogato Al Caffe, an Italian specialty combining the strong taste and heat of an espresso coffee with the cool refreshing creaminess of vanilla gelato.

The ambience of the dessertery has a quaintness to it that transports you to Italy with its upscale interior and authentic Italian decor. Guests can take their treats to go or sit and enjoy conversation by the fireplace or on the outdoor patio. The atmosphere, along with the delicious products, give guests an all-around experience.

The Raleigh location will be open Monday through Thursday and Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. and Fridays noon to 11 p.m.
