Eugene Bizzarro (Eugenio) became interested in starting his own business at a very young age. After his broad travels throughout Italy over the years and acquiring his family's original recipes, he decided to preserve these recipes by opening a family business dedicated to the standards that his ancestors expected. Eugene found a way to preserve the recipes that he had grown up with and at the same time share them, the way they were meant to be, with others.

After acquiring all of his family's recipes and mastering the artisan skills of gelato making, Eugene opened his first Gelataria & Espresso Bar in Saratoga Springs, New York. Eugenio's Cafe Gelato was opened in June, 2003 wich later move to the opposite side of Broadway to become Saratoga Gelato (making the name easyer to remeber). Eugene wanted to share his family recipes as well as his artisan style gelato with Saratoga Springs visitors and residents.

Today, Saratoga Gelato is recognized as one of the only authentic Italian Gelataria & Espresso Bars in the area. Located only minutes away from Saratoga race track in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs. Saratoga Gelato has since expanded it's menu beyond gelato, espresso, and pastries.

We invite you to come and experience gelato the way it should be. At Saratoga Gelato it is made fresh daily on the premises from family recipes using imported Italian flavors and all fresh, organic and natural ingredients. Our customers who have had gelato while on vacation in Italy have said our Gelato is even better. But don't take our word for it, experience it for yourself and tell us what you think. Saratoga Gelato also specializes in homemade Italian pastries created from family recipes, and offers espresso, espresso based beverages, stuffed breads, soups, pastries and more.
